Mile High Reading

November 01, 2014

This was difficult since the majority of books I read are often disturbing, depressing, or downright difficult to stomach during something as sensitive as flying. I think I finally managed to pick a pretty good selection of books for both long and short haul flights.

| Affluenza by Oliver James
| The Secret History by Donna Tartt
| The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
| The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean
| Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
| Modern Baptists by James Wilcox

| The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon
| Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham
| The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
| Hey Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland
| Bossypants by Tina Fey
| Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller

    Affluenza is SUCH a good read - I go totally stuck into this last year and couldn't put it down. I've been reading the Opposite of Loneliness lately which is a pretty good airplane read I reckon!

  4. Not that kind of girl is also on my reading list! Lilly xx

  6. I'm reading The Secret History right now. I really like it so far. :) Great suggestions, I'll have to check out the other titles.

  7. Oh my goodness, I literally JUST finished reading The Secret History and I need to gush over how incredible it was! It is the best book I've read so far this year, and has definitely earned a place on my all time favourite books list. Fantastic picks!
