my winter reading list


'so many books, so little time'





____

And I am done, my last exam for 2018 is written and I have a two-week break from school, which means that's I've finally got some time to read again. For my birthday back in October my mum got me a couple of new books, sadly I haven't had time to read them during the last school term, so I thought I would go ahead and share my winter reading list with you. 

Side note: All the books are unread, so I can't give you my personal opinion yet.

fiction books:


I've read myself through a few non-fictional books about depressions. This one in return is a fictional story about a woman who tries to get her life back together. It's written by Andrea Kraft who has a past with depression which is why I purchased this book in the first place. 

I've heard so much about this book and at this point I honestly can't wait to give it a read. I've had a look at a few online books reviews and a good friend of mine recommended me this book, so I guess there was no way around buying this book. 

I bought this book about two years ago, it's been sitting on my night stand ever since, not because I forgot about it but because to me the title of this book sounds like the perfect book to read around this time a year, when it's dark outside, the days are shorter and you cozy up by the fire. So that's the vision I've had stuck in my mind all this time nevertheless I've not come around reading it yet but I hope to do so this winter.

This one is a book about twins who have been torn apart by a tragedy. Even though it's a young adult book I am kind of excited to give it a go.

non-fiction books:


Many times before I've talked about Julia Engelmann on here. For those of you who don't know her, she's a german poetry slam writer and in my eyes definitely worth to check out. Her new book came out this autumn and I can't wait to dig a little better in to her art.

The first poet to get me into poetry was Madison Kuhn, ever since her poems inspire me on a daily basis and I can't wait to read more of her words this season.

This is the second collection by Rudi Kaur, a poet most of you should probably know. Her first book 'milk and honey' was worshipped by many, nevertheless it did not catch me at first. This one though touched me right from the beginning.

Yep - I bought another book by John Strelecky. I hope to get around reading it in the next few days as I believe now that the year is slowly coming to an end, books that make you reflect on life are nice to read.

This is another book from the pile my mother got me for my birthday and I am super excited to read it. It's divided into little chapters written by many inspiring woman from around the world. 

Last but not least, this book has made it's way into my winter reading list. It's in german but I believe it's also available in english. Especially around this time a year, I find it very complicated to rest and to shut my mind down, so I hope that this book gives me new ideas and thought-provoking impulses.
