What I will be reading in November

Just so you know all links here are affiliate links :)

 Ah, November. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. It’s the month of pre-christmas limbo that seems to last forever. While I wait for the excitement of Christmas to set in, here’s a list of the books that I’ll be reading in November. I’m going through a bit of a non-fiction/memoir kick at the moment so I’m excited to see how I’ll get on!

 1. To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out The World? By Lucy Siegle

 After watching Stacey Dooley’s Fashion’s Dirty Secret on the BBC, I realised how naïve I had been about the fashion world and how bad it is for the environment. It was the first step to kick my butt into gear and change my ways. I’m donating and selling all of the clothes that I don’t wear and only buying clothes that I actually NEED rather than clothes that I don’t want. I admit, I love clothes and I love fashion, that’s just part of who I am. But instead of channelling my shopaholic energy into fast fashion, I want to channel it into more sustainable solutions. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to leave my love for Zara and Pull & bear behind, but thankfully they have a sustainable ‘Join Life’ collection which is a step in the right direction. I’ve been inspired to shop second hand, to support smaller businesses even more and to think about my carbon footprint. I’m hoping that this book is going to inspire me even more.

 2.  Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton

I have seen this book everywhere, and by everywhere I literally mean EVERYWHERE. It’s on Instagram, it’s online, it’s only recently just got off the best seller list! So I have extremely high hopes for this one and hope it’s as good as the hype says it is.

 3. From the Corner of the Oval Office by Beck Dorey-Stein

This book follows the career of one woman working in the white house under President Obama. I got sent this one by the publisher and I have to admit that the garishly bright hot pink of the cover has put me off reading it a little bit. A book doesn’t need to be that bright! However, I have heard a lot of really great things about this book so I am willing to take off the cover jacket and give it a try. (I’m kidding, I can look past the cover)

And that’s it! With my constantly busy schedule I think three is more than enough for me to handle. I’m really excited about expanding my genres a bit more and trying something new, but only time will tell if I actually managed to do it!
