Five For Friday – Books I Got For Christmas

Welcome to the first instalment of Five For Friday for 2019! I am going to share 5x books I got for Christmas, I actually got 5x books exactly, no more and no less!

1. Circe by Madeline Miller
As some of you may know I LOVE greek myths. Circe is a retelling of a Greek tale and I have wanted to read it for ages! My boyfriend got me this book for Christmas, I haven’t had time to read it yet but I have had time to stare at the beautiful golden cover.

2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I have watched so many different versions of A Christmas Carol, my favourite of course is The Muppets one. However I have never read it before. To add to my Penguin Clothbound collection I got this pretty version of Dickens’ classic tale.

3. Notes On A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig
I have wanted to read this book for a while, I suffer from a bit of anxiety and also stress. Matt Haig writes about how humans can be happy in a 21st Century world even if there a billion different things that can cause us to be anxious, stressed and panicky. I think this book will really help me.

4. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
I followed the Canadian poet Rupi Kauer earlier this year on Instagram. I recently found out she had a book so asked for it for Christmas. The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose; deals with a different pain; heals a different heartache. I rarely buy or read poetry so thought this would be something to curl up with.

5. Whiskey In A Teacup by Reese Witherspoon
I have already got half way through this book. I LOVE Reese Witherspoon so much! She is a brilliant actress, I really enjoy her online book club, she produces films with a strong female lead, she has her own clothing line. She is a really inspirational, fun and powerful woman. My sister bought me her book for Christmas and I love it. So many cool things about Reese’s life as a southern american lady and I can’t wait to try out some of the delicious recipes inside. The book is also laid out beautifully, fonts, photography and lay outs it makes me want to drool!
