Spending years of reading school text books, or exercise manuals it is so refreshing read a ‘ non study’ book when you are not lazying on the beach.
October seems to be the month where I have been able to catch up on life, post summer, post September and before the silly season. Hello October you are my bookworm month, so already I have crushed through The Great Gatsby, having seen the movie it was nice to refresh the imagery with words. And now I have my nose in two novels, see below.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
Personally, I always like to read a book before I see the film. But this time it wasn’t the case. I agree doing it this way limits my imagination when reading but it does whatever entertain me with what is movie worthy from the tale! I can’t help but see the sets and faces from the film.
Im enjoying this classic with my peppermint tea on my beside table, as I embrace your inner Daisy Buchanan.
Be Careful What You Wish For, Gemma Crisp
Having got my hands on a copy of Gemma Crisp’s novel, but I’m eager to never stop reading it. From a model’s point of view it is interesting to get a different perspective on the industry. Its a little like the The Devil Wears Prada, with a punch of good old Aussie humour thrown in to liven it up a little.
Grace A Memoir, Grace Coddington
This is the book! Creative Director of Vogue, fashion icon, fashion genius. Grace Coddington has worked with Anna Wintour at Vogue US for over twenty years, so you can only imagine the stories she has to tell of supermodels, celebrities, the infamous Anna, and the ever-changing, always crazy world of fashion.
