Blog-tember Challenge - Let's Talk About Books

Day 12 - Three books! One you've just read, one you're currently reading and one you want to read. 

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” 
― C.S. Lewis

I could talk (or write!) about books all day. I've always had a passion for reading. As a kid I never minded about being sent to my room as a punishment because that's where my books were. Until my Mum cottoned on and then instead banned me from my books as a punishment!

It's very unusual for me not to have a book or two on the go. These past few months though my reading habits have been very hit and miss. I'm either too busy preparing for baby or too tired. I have got a book at the moment that I've read numerous times that I keep dipping in and out off so that's my 'currently' book.. 

Elizabeth Gilbert - Big Magic

I finished reading this about 4 weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I love the way that Elizabeth Gilbert writes. It's almost like she is sat in the room with you just chatting away. My favourite paragraph from this book - 

"Perfectionist often decide in advance that the end product is never going to be satisfactory, so they don't even bother trying to be creative in the first place." 

This just describes me down to a T. My creativity comes out in writing. However I'm so scared of it not being good enough that I sometimes step back and say "that's it. I give up." I've done it with my blog numerous times but I always come back. I guess thats why they call it as passion? 

Maureen Lee - The House By Princes Park

I couldn't tell you how many times I've read this book. It follows a family over four generations and if I don't have anything else to read I will always pick this up. It's my currently reading book. I don't think I'll ever tire of it :) 

Rhonda Byrne - The Power

I read the secret a few years ago and also watched the documentary. This is the next book in the series and then The Magic follows after. I'm a big believer in the whole power of positive thinking (although I'm not always good at applying it to daily life) and really enjoyed The Secret so I'm hoping this one is just as good. 

What's on your reading list? Have you read any of these? I'm always looking for new books to read so let me know your favourites!
