7 books you need to read if you love a good Thriller

For anyone that doesn’t know, my favourite genre to read is a Thriller and all the sub-genres of Thriller. Crime Thriller, Psychological Thriller, Supernatural Thriller – if it has Thriller in the title then I am all for it. It’s funny how your taste in books changes as you grow isn’t it? A good few years ago I absolutely loved Chick-Lit novels but that’s not a genre I tend to go for anymore just because my tastes have changed as I’ve grown. And that’s totally okay. So anyway, Thriller’s are my go-to genre now. I absolutely love the suspense, the build up, the secrets, the confusion and usually the epic twists at the end. Of course not all Thrillers tick all the boxes and I know not everyone likes or reads full-length book reviews, which is totally okay, so here’s a quick run down of 7 books you need to read if, like me, you love a good Thriller.

Small ways to expand your horizons

Almost every day, we’re faced with photos, tweets, Facebook ‘check-in’s’ of people jetting off across the other side of the world to go travelling. People who have spent the day in a waterfall, exploring another culture, sky-diving, snorkeling – you name it and you’ve probably seen someone you know on social media doing it. Whether you follow any travel bloggers or not, there’s always posts cropping up about why you should travel, how travel makes you a better person, how to find yourself by travelling and so on. I’m not making fun of people who travel; I think if it’s what you want to do and you have the means to do it then that’s amazing and you should totally go for it. But I am saying that not all of us can, should or want to travel. And that’s okay too.

Father’s Day is literally round the corner so if you haven’t already, now is probably the time to grab some gifts for the Dad, Granddad or Father figure in your life!

My dream home interiors

Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to be buying or renting my own home at the moment but I trust that when I become a millionaire sometime soon, I will be. I’m just kidding but we all know how difficult it can be to get on the property ladder right now, with house prices going up and up and up and the hope for young people ever moving out of their parents house getting slimmer and slimmer. But obviously, not impossible. Lots of young people do manage it and that’s great. Although I’m fairly happy with my position right now, I’ve always had a love for home decor and home interiors. You should see how long I spend designing houses on The Sims! So designing and decorating a place of my own is something I often dream about. So, if money was no issue, here are some of my dream home interiors!

25 bookish blog post ideas

I’ve done plenty of ‘blog post ideas’ posts before; Winter & Christmas, Autumn and Spring & Summer and these posts always tend to go down really well. We all struggle with blogging motivation and inspiration and sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we cannot come up with an idea for a blog post for the life of us. I’ve been there, you’ve been there, we’ve all been there. So I don’t think there’s any shame in asking, looking or offering help for people stuck in those inspiration-ruts. Now I’ve got the seasons out the way, I thought I’d do more niché style blog post ideas lists, starting with my favourite niché of all… books! Here are 25 book themed blog post ideas that you’re free to use!

BOOK REVIEW: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

Format: Library book
Links: Goodreads | Amazon UK
Blurb: At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.

When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a medical student asking what makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon working in the core of human identity – the brain – and finally into a patient and a new father.

What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when when life is catastrophically interrupted? What does it mean to have a child as your own life fades away?

Paul Kalanithi died while working on this profoundly moving book, yet his words live on as a guide to us all. When Breath Becomes Air is a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a gifted writer who became both.
