Summer Reading

Summer Reading

The start of summer, okay more like the last week used to be spent cramming all the books in that I was meant to have read. In particular for my GCSE years, so about 10 years ago (gulp). I’ve decided the next three books I am going to read are going to be slightly less trashy and more factual. With the above view, plenty of coffee and hopefully some sun.

Very Good Lives

Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination. I love JK Rowling and was definitely a Harry Potter kid. I am intrigued to her thoughts on failure, as we have all been there but are reluctant to always admit it.

David and Goliath

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants. The Tipping Point was one of the first non-fiction books that I read that I enjoyed and still remember.


Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking. I definitely talk too much, often in situations where I shouldn’t. Hopefully this book will help me understand both introvert and extrovert types.
