My book recommendations

If you like thrillers, mystery, and action-focused books

Thrillers are my favourite type of book – particularly the psychological variety. I love a book that keeps me hanging on to its every word. I’ve come across so many amazing authors in the genre – it’s hard to narrow down my favourites! The following three are absolutely gripping, and well worth a read.

If you like romance, love, and relationships

There’s nothing cosier than a loved-up romance! Very different to thrillers and mysteries, but I absolutely love rom-coms. These are all perfect books to pair with a rainy day, a snuggly duvet, and a piece of cake (or two).

If you like fantasy and science-fiction

I’m very particular when it comes to fantasy and science-fiction books – I don’t review them often! Sometimes, though, books in the genre really stand out to me. I’ve made more of an effort to read them this year, and I’ve loved these in particular.

If you want non-fiction over fiction books

Non-fiction will always have a special place in my heart – sometimes it’s great to immerse yourself in the real world. I’ve become fond of memoirs since becoming a book blogger but I also love learning through non-fiction. Here are three in particular that I’ve loved!

Prefer listening to your bookish content?

If you’re more of an audiobook fan then I’d totally recommend Audible. I really disliked audiobooks until I signed up to Audible’s 30 day free trial… Within days I was hooked! I now have a membership and use it to listen to non-fiction books, which I find really easy to digest via audio. I’ve discovered that there’s nothing better than listening to an audiobook in the bath, or after a long day. Click the banner below for more details on how to sign up for the free trial.

  1. Great post!! I’m trying to get my reading time up at the moment – lack of a commute this year means my reading has plummeted – and definitely need to adopt the switching up the TV time.
