BLOGTOBER DAY 24: Thrillers From BooksandLala’s Favourites I Want to Read!

Hi everyone!

I’m (finally) back with another very belated blogtober post! I’ve not been well for the last week or so, so the blogtober posts got pushed back a little bit. However I am determined to catch up!

Today I wanted to share some of the books on BooksandLala’s favourites list that I am desperate to read! I absolutely adore her, and her reading style is not only very similar to mine, but I also just completely trust her recommendations and she’s my favourite Booktuber!

She also has A LOT of books on her favourites list, so I’m only going to choose a couple that I’m excited to read – otherwise this post would be SUPER long!

Let’s go!divider-2461548_1280

Books That Have Influenced My Life!

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about some books that have been extremely influential in my life, and ones that I don’t think I’d be who I am now without reading them in my life!

I love being nostalgic about books, and I can’t wait to share some of my all time favourites with you!

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Reading Matilda was the first time I ever read about someone who loved reading as much as I did. I’ve grown up in a family of readers, but none of my friends ever really read. It was so inspiring reading about someone who wasn’t part of my family who loved reading so much and really developed my love for books, and then seeing her do magic? It was THE BEST!

Obviously, Shakespeare is my primary inspiration and influence.  His plays have many allusions in my novels, but he’s not my only source of ideas.  I’m not a Shakespeare scholar, only a self-described fangirl, and my academic specialization is Victorian Literature, so my influences spring primarily from nineteenth century works.
