wherever you will go

Books. One of my favourite pastimes. I've been reading books since I was about 5 years old, and even though I couldn't actually read yet- I pretended I could. You can only imagine what it felt like to me when I finally started reading in primary school! I read about 2-3 books a week, but that number has been slowly decreasing since I went to secondary school. Now I'm in 6th form, I get so much coursework that I only get to read the books I have to read for school! So I've promised myself to read more and to get to see books more like an amusement- kind of thingy then something I'm obligated to do.
I saw these books on someone's tumblr once, and she really recommended them. Not only am I a sucker for beautiful covers like these, but they also seemed really good books! Well now, I asked for 'On the Road' for my birthday last year, which was on October 6th, 2010, and I still haven't read it. Oops! I also got Dear John and Looking for Alaska, which is one of the best books I have ever read. I saw 'No one belongs here more than you' in an English book shop display when I spent a weekend in Amsterdam with my boyfriend. I had been searching for it for such a long time, so it was really a nice surprise! Do you have any favourite books?

I'm a little bit ill today, so I didn't go to school. My throat is sore for a week now, I have fever and my head hurts like hell, so I really hope I feel better by tomorrow! I also hope I can go shopping for a lovely new coat tomorrow afternoon or Saturday. I'm planning a cute date with my boyfriend too, but I'm not quite sure what to do! I was thinkingof going to a cute little petting zoo with him, but we'll see. I also really can't decide on which make up/beauty product I want to review! Hope you're all having a lovely Tuesday, I'm going to start reading On the Road with a lovely cup of hot chocolate whilst hoping I will feel better by tomorrow!
