My current reading list aswell as what films and music I’m currently loving.
First up is the film What Happened To Monday, also known as Seven Sisters in France. Currently on Netflix, it’s based in a world where, due to overpopulation, families are only allowed one child. One woman named Karen Settman dies whilst giving birth to identical septuplets, leaving their grandfather to raise them. He names them after the days of the week and allows them to only leave the house on the day of their name. They live their lives under the radar posing as a single individual named after their mother. One day when Monday fails to return home, the sisters retrace her steps to find out what happened to her. I really enjoyed this film, it was exciting and different.
Thanks to one of my favourite YouTubers, Lydia Elise Millen, I heard about this book How To Be An Overnight Success. Written by the founder and CEO of Rodial, Maria Hatzistefanis gives empowering career advice and her own story of how she became successful in business. A must read for any inspiring entrepreneur or anyone looking for some motivation to follow their dreams. I’m really looking forward to hearing Maria’s story. A goal of mine is to finish it by the end of the month.
Another book I’m hoping to finish by the end of this month is Vogue On Coco Chanel. I’m about two thirds the way through this and it’s really fascinating reading about such an icon. The book gives you an insight into the life of Chanel, her way of thinking and how she became the most influential fashion designer of the twentieth century. It also includes beautiful photos and illustrations. A great book for fashion lovers.
I’ve just started A Maiden’s Grave and I’m gripped. A group of deaf and mute school girls and their teachers are on a bus when it’s hijacked by three convicts. They hold the girls at gunpoint and threaten to kill one of them every hour unless their demands are met. I feel like I’m definitely going to get through this book quickly, I just want to find out what happens.
One of the two songs I’m loving recently is Dua Lipa’s New Rules. I can’t get this song out of my head. It’s so catchy and sassy.
The other song I’m currently rating is Dusk Till Dawn by Zayn and Sia. I’m getting quite the obsession with Sia recently and this song is amazing.
That’s all the media I’m loving at the moment. Are there any books or films you would recommend? I’m always looking for new suggestions. Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading XOXO.
