'The Geek Feminist Revolution' by Kameron Hurley: So I started this month a little way through this non-fiction read, and I'm liking it. It's angry and passionate, and has women at it's heart. It's not quite what I expected, but I'm sticking with it because it's still a good read that puts me in a motivational mood.
'The Girl From Everywhere' by Heidi Heilig: After reading something so grounded in the real world, I think it will be nice to read something a little more magical. I have not read any books about time travel recently, and it seems like such an awesome concept that I want to find a good one! It's well-reviewed and will fit the bill nicely I think!
'The Return Of Sherlock Holmes' by Arthur Conan Doyle: Time to delve into more of the Sherlock Holmes series of books! This time I'll be reading a collection of short stories, which is very exciting! I love murder mysteries, especially if they're written by Arthur Conan Doyle! I have high hopes. I'm going with a school theme seeing as September is 'back to school' month, and Sherlock Holmes can be found on any curriculum.
'The Hate U Give' by Angie Thomas. This book has had my attention for a while. In fact I bought it almost as soon as it came out, but never got to read it. Until now. It's held the top spot in the NYT bestsellers list for such a long time and from the sounds of it, that record is well deserved. I can't wait! This is a book a lot of people would like to see on the curriculum I think.
'Our Numbered Days' by Neil Hilborn: Poetry? When do I ever read poetry? Not since school is the answer, but I do enjoy it. Neil Hilborn is a particular favourite of mine and I've watched a few Youtube videos of his work. I bought this book, for my fiancé who loves this guy and I really want to see how they look on paper.
'Holding Up The Universe' by Jennifer Niven: I'm going with a bit of a school theme this month, as it was school that evoked my love of reading. This book is set in a school and I have been putting off reading it for too long. I really enjoyed 'All The Bright Places' so I'm hoping this second book from Niven will be equally as good, maybe even better!
'Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki & His Years Of Pilgrimage' by Haruki Murukami: I have never read Murukami. Ever. He's one of those classic authors who everyone tells me to read and I've just never got round to. Nevertheless, it's also set in a school and I like the concept of this book. It's not as long as some of Murakami's other works either so it will let me get a good taster of his style.
'Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education' by Malala Yousafzai:, by the author of the same name, is certainly a biography I'd be interested to read. As a girl who 'stood up for education' it fits the school theme very nicely. I want to read this book so badly, it has been on my TBR for an absolute age, and will hopefully be my second non-fiction read of the month!
