As you'll know if you've been reading this blog a while, I do not support or endorse Amazon for many reasons, and so although I used a feature on their site to make this list, all the title links will go to Wordery who I do fully support, endorse and am an affiliate of, so should you choose to purchase any of the books through these links I will get a small commission and love you forever.
The first list I found in my notebook was after I read Eat, Pray, Love. In hindsight this isn't one of the best books I've ever read, but at the time I really loved it so here we go!
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
One Day by David Nicholls
Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada
Everything I've Ever Done that Worked by Lesley Garner
The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment by Isabel Losada
The Hotel on the Roof of the World by Alec Le Saeur
Magic Bus: On the Hippie Trail from Istanbul to India by Rory McLean
The Backpacker by John Harris
Solomon Time: Adventures in the South Pacific by Will Randall
Getting Stoned with Savages by J. Maarten Troost
The Shark God: Encounters with Gods and Ancestors in the South Pacific by Charles Montgomery
A Land of Two Halves by Joe Bennett
31 Days in a Campervan by Pete Buckley
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
The Power of Less by Leo Babauta
Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment by Ariel Kane
The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry
The Handbag and Wellies Yoga Club by Lucy Edge
The similarity between some of these titles is clearer than with others - some seem entirely random to me, but there's lots on here that I'm interested to read! I've recently started a library wishlist as well as my regular wishlists, so that I can put titles somewhere and remember them without having to buy anything and lots of these will be going on there!
I've read a few - The Happiness Project and The Help are both excellent and well worth a read if you haven't already. I also enjoyed The Fry Chronicles, although it's probably only interesting if you're interested in Stephen Fry. He's an interesting man though!
Have you read any of these books?
Look out for another list coming soon!
J. Maarten Troost is one of my favorite writers! He takes the travel memoir genre to a whole other level. :)ReplyDelete
