What's on my Kindle?

Monday, 27 April 2020

I've had a very love/hate relationship over the years with my Kindle. Actually, 'hate' seems a bit harsh. Truth be told, there are times when I just don't bother picking my Kindle up and it sits forgotten about for months on end. I think I'll always prefer a paperback no matter what, but recently I've fallen back in love with my Kindle and I currently think it's the BEST. THING. EVER.

It's most definitely due to being in lockdown that I've rediscovered my Kindle. Not being able to go out and physically look around bookshops (which is fast becoming one of my favourite pastimes) has forced me to look online for books and so my love for my Kindle has blossomed once more. I did a bookshelf tour last year but I completely disregarded the books that were sitting on my Kindle, so I figured now would be a great time show you what's on there.

I've created folders for my books just to tidy things up a bit. There's four folders altogether, but two of them are filled with crap (such as the dictionaries and a couple of trashy books I won't ever read) so we'll disregard those two folders and concentrate on the primary two folders; 'Finished books' and 'To read' - they pretty much do what they say on the tin.

Finished Books
There actually aren't a tonne of books that I've finished reading on my Kindle. I usually buy books that are either a) on offer for 99p and I just can't resist a bargain, or b) I'm slightly unsure about and so buy it at the reduced Kindle price. If there's an author I know and love, I will typically buy a physical copy of their book, but if it's a one off author that I've never read anything from before, I'll look for it on Kindle first. In this folder we have;

Half a World Away by Mike Gayle
Merry & Bright by Debbie Macomber
The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
Paper Towns by John Green
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Fault in our Stars by John Green

The John Green books I bought as a deal when I first bought my Kindle about 6 years ago (maybe even longer???) and the same goes for Girl Online. I don't think I'll ever read them again but I also don't want to remove them as I clearly was very into those sorta books when I was 16/17 years old and so they shall remain for the good memories. I've also linked any books I've wrote a review up on, so feel free to check those out if they tickle your fancy.

To Read
Again, there aren't a tonne of books on here because I've only just started getting into reading on my Kindle again. Some of these books have been sitting in this folder for years untouched now, which is ridiculous, but I am trying to make more of an effort to get through them!

We have:

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
The Little Old Lady who Broke all the Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider
Finding Henry Applebee by Celia Reynolds
The Hope Family Calendar by Mike Gayle
The Other Half of Augusta Hope by Joanna Glen
The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
We are all Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
Platinum Doll by Anne Girard

Like I mentioned, there aren't a tonne of books there, mainly because I do prefer picking up a physical copy, but the ones that are on that list are all books I'm genuinely excited to read.

Are there any books on there that you have read? I'm open to suggestions of books to buy on Kindle too, so any books you think I should buy, do let me know!
