Books, Books, Books! – My Top 5 books I want to read.

I love reading and if you are a fellow book worm then you will love it just as much as me! When it comes to reading, I love to read books that make me think or interest me so deeply that I have trouble putting it down because to me they’re the best kind! šŸ™‚ Going along with that line of thought, I thought that I would compile a mini list of the 5 books I want to read right now and here it goes…

  1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I saw the original book a few years ago and to be honest the cover looked a little scary and I will show you why, so the cover I saw was similar to this (posted below) and it was a little girl dancing/holding hands with death (Pretty scary right!) I know you should never judge a book by its cover but this was an exception because it spooked me haha! but now I am older (20 to be exact) I can handle the book, because the trailer to the film looks pretty amazing so my expectations for the book are high.

  2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I do not know much about this book however the cover is enough to make me want to read it, it’s so appealing and enchanting. I’ve also seen a lot of bloggers review this book and give it good ratings so fingers crossed!
  3. Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender – This is another book I know very little about however after reading the blurb and some reviews on it on Good Reads website I can see that this may be an interesting read.
  4. Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde by Jeff Guinn – I am a bit of a history nerd, not massively but I have certain aspects of history that I really find interesting like pirates, 19th Century, medicine and of course crime and under that category falls Bonnie and Clyde. I have done lots of research and reading online but there are so many stories and tales and I think this book would be an interesting read.
  5. The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman – I found this book whilst searching the Good Reads website and the title firstly grabbed me, I love books that are like biographies or accounts from a persons perspective and I am interested in medicine and healthcare like I already said (I want to be a nurse anyway haha) and reading about a midwife’s apprentice in medieval England.

So I hope you enjoyed my little list of what I am hoping to read soon, if there are any books you’d like to recommend then please comment and let me know šŸ™‚

The Health Benefits of Honey

Honey – That oh so sweet golden looking substance that we all know so well! It’s good in glasses of hot milk, it’s good over toast, it’s good over porridge but what else is this golden treat good for? So I thought I would do a little post about the apparent health benefits of honey that are circulating the internet šŸ™‚

  1. Scientists have said that honey contains strong anti-bacterial qualities which is why it has been used timelessly throughout the centuries to heal wounds, allergies, coughs and general ailments.Ā 
  2. It makes a wonderful skin moisturizer and can reduce acne in some cases.
  3. Honey can make a powerful anti-oxidant and immunity protector.
  4. It can reduce theĀ irritationĀ in a mosquito bite when applied.
  5. Allegedly it can help aid gastrointestinalĀ disorders such as colitis.
  6. It’s a natural energy booster.

So if you thought that sweet treat was unhealthy think again, there are many health benefits to honey and this is just a few of them. There are a variety of different types of honey as well with a range of flavours and aromas.

Hope you enjoyed šŸ™‚
