A Few Weekend Reads

Yes you may be thinking, hold on here, it’s Tuesday! But that is because I’m giving you time to go to the library like the cool nerd you are and get the book so you have it for the weekend! See, I’m always thinking…. So I have read these books lately and luuuurved them so I am recommending them to you lovely jubblies…

If you like crazy, amazing, and hilarious guys read: Still Got It, Never Lost It by Louie Spence.

Yes, I am a Spence fan. Self-confessed and utterly obsessed. This is Louie’s autobiography and it is both sad and hilare and then of course, it’s Louie, why wouldn’t ya love it?

 

if you like books about people learning to be themselves read: Flick by Geraldine Meadle.

Flick is a true teenager who has made mistakes and is trying to be herself in a place where she won’t be accepted. But Joey, a girl she bumps into along the way teaches her that it isn’t about what everyone else thinks. I read this in one sitting, its that good.

 

if you like more out-there, fairytale like stories read: Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne.

John Boyne wrote Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, which is now a Major Motion Picture! oh I feel so cool writing that. But anyway, READ IT.

A Bit of a Read- Sense and Sensibility

If you say Jane Austen nowadays, you can hear someone say, “Can I download that to my e-reader?” Well, yeah, you can, but go and buy the book. Go to a little bookshop down the road in your town and BUY this book. With MONEY. Not on a SCREEN. This is what wrecks my head. I have no problems with going digital, but leave my books alone. Especially the ones that were originally printed in the 1800’s? If Jane Austen could see this right now she would probably die all over again. And nobody wants that now, do they?

So go buy Sense and Sensibility. Or if you ALL heed my advice and Sense and Sensibilty is sold out, buy Pride and Prejudice. But don’t now go to Amazon and click, go put on your coat and get on your bike and go buy a book. It will be good for you. Bonus points if you wear a hippie skirt- I just love those.
