The Sunday Post: January Reading List

Right now we are six days into 2013 (obviously…), this months magazines have been purchased, and I am sick and back in my bed. Again. It was nice of my immune system to keep on trucking over Christmas, but now we’ve hit the new year, my white blood cells have gone on vacation. Cue the perfect opportunity to shift through the new magazines and books that together are making up my January Reading List.

I picked up The Perks of Being a Wallflower a few months back now, and I think it will be the perfect reading material for traveling to work as it’s fairly small and lightweight. I really wish I’d been able to get my hands on the original cover though so I think I might end up owning two copies of this!

After watching season one and two of The Walking Dead over Christmas, I ended up stealing the boys copy of the Zombie Survival Guide. It’s one of my biggest irrational fears and for some reason I feel compelled to feed it! This weekend I also picked up a copy of Blog Inc. I’d seen it in Urban Outfitters a few times and uhmmed and ahrrred over buying it, but after realising it has gone into the sales I felt compelled to pick it up. Thoughts so far? I understand a fair amount already, but if you’re new to blogging there are some really helpful chapters inside.

That’s it for the reading list this month, I’m thinking of dedicating a post a month to The Reading List – other than writing on here, reading is my favourite pastime (as long as we don’t factor in Eastenders). In other news this week: I’m currently uploading a Top Five Lipsticks and have a haul and make up storage in the pipe line – all hail the new lighting!

    I read Blog Inc; I found some of it too basic and some aimed too much at making a career from blogging. A nice read though and definitely a few useful tips! x

    I love reading so this as a regular feature will be fab 🙂 I study English Lit at uni and cannot wait until I graduate in June and can read things that aren't on a reading list so I need lots of ideas for then! xx

    Perks of being a wallflower is one of my favourite books. When I heard the film was coming out I wasn't sure if I wanted to see it though. I always worry that a motion picture will ruin my idea of how things were in the book. :p

    Perks of Being a Wallflower and Blogging Inc are now firmly on my 'to read' list! It just keeps getting longer though… I'm definitely going to try and post more about what I'm reading this year. xx

    I'd seen a few people mention/instagram that blog book. I wasnt sure whether to get it or not incase it was just full of information I already knew! Let me know if you think its beneficial for someone who has blogged for over 2 years! haha

    I really want to read Perks of a Wallflower – although somehow I ended up committing myself to Anna Karenina (i'm still only on page 96 ha).

    After seeing the film 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' I really want to read the book. But Life of Pi was only 20p on the kindle store so I need to start that first! I hope you feel better soon!

    Just bought Blog Inc from Amazon, hopefully it will give me some inspiration. Also recently purchased Style Feed: The World's Top Fashion Blogs. It looks at the most popular blogs created from 2005 through to 2011, really interesting for anyone who loves blogging and fashion.
