I love getting books to read for review, and thought I'd start doing a quick post every couple of weeks to update on what books are rocking my TBR (To Be Read) pile! All of the below are copies or proofs from publishers, but I know I'll receive a few books as gifts at Christmas too - bring on the reading!

 I've just finished Sleep by Nick Littlehales (Penguin Life) and I really enjoyed it. I'm passionate about the impact that good sleep habits can have on wellbeing, so am excited to review this soon here on the blog.

 Sir David Tang's Rules for Modern Life (Portfolio) is bringing me such joy. As a child reading Debrett's was my idea of a good time (I never claimed to be the most normal child) so this witty, clever book is proving a most enjoyable read as a grown up.

 I found Hold Back The Stars by Katie Khan (Doubleday, release date 26th January) utterly gripping - charming, vivid and unusual (and as the photo above shows, Leela approved).

 How To Be A Grown Up by Daisy Buchanan (Headline, release date 6th April) is a book I've just started and have fallen for, hard. Like a conversation with trusted friends over a few glasses of wine, this is stirring, inspirational stuff, full of advice, asides, and humour. Loving it so far.

 I've only read three chapters of The One by John Marrs (Ebury, release date 26th January for ebook, 4th May for paperback) so far and I'm already freaked out. Excellent stuff.

  1. I'd love to read the book on good sleeping habbits. I have for years suffered with bouts of insomnia and other times I can fall asleep at the drop of a dime. I wish I love sleeping and but if I get to much I'm tired. Sounds like a great read

  2. Really like to read Sleep and How To Be A Grown Up - sounds right up my street!

    1. The book about sleep sounds good, I have a horrible sleeping pattern, so this book would be so helpful xx
