Books: The Ones I’ve Recently Finished

Autumn feels like the perfect time to be reading, as it gets dark so early, and it’s just a great feeling to be all cosy on the sofa with a cup of tea and some candles.This is why I  wanted to share 6 books I’ve finished recently.  And they are quite a mix.

I have also joined the book club, and will have my first meeting soon, so very excited about that.

1. Grace A Memoir By Grace Coddington (Amazon)

As you would imagine, this is one of a kind autobiography. Grace shares about all her adventures, and all those wonderful places and people. It would be especially interesting for people who are fascinated with fashion and beauty industries.  On a more personal note, now I really want to go to Anglesey Island in Wales.

2. Women by Charles Bukowski (Amazon)

I am ashamed to admit, but this is the first Bukowski book that I’ve read. I was listening to a podcast about him, and finally read it a few weeks ago.  “Women” is

Last time I’ve posted my list of  books to read  was back in 2013, so it is definitely time for an update. I do post about books I am reading on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest thought, if you are interested.

Before we start, I just want to mention that I did a feature about the beauty books every girl (interested in the subject, obviously) should read.

Books To Read List October 2015 Makeup4all

So here are nine books that I plan on reading in the near future. I already have them all, except the last one which is not out yet (but I have it on pre-order).

1. Franz Kafka The Trial.

Don’t know how it happened but somehow I never read this book.

2. François Mauriac. The Desert Of Love.

Mauriac was a favourite author of my literature professor from university, and that is a very high recommendation for me. Had this book on my “to read” list for ages now.

3. Frank McCourt. Angela’s Ashes.

New In: Books On Perfume and Fashion

Recently I posted a feature about beauty books every girl needs which I wrote for Mode. There I actually said that Perfumes A to Z Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez is on top of my wish list, after so many recommendations of people who know and love perfume.

I finally bought it last month, and although I did not have a chance to read it properly yet, I really love it so far. I was happy to discover that perfumes that I love got high rates and laughed at some other witty and honest reviews. My brother was also intrigued by this book and borrowed it to read about his colognes and to find some new ones.

I am sure that it is as good as everyone says it is. I am only sad that it’s from 2009 so a lot of new(er) perfumes are not included.
