Reading the days away...

Inspired by the irreplaceable feeling you get once finishing an incredible book, I've decided to create a post entailing the classics (both literature and fashion) books I intend the read this summer.

My reading taste goes from the fashion book genre to shudder inducing thrillers to literary classics. So, I'm going to give you a taste in variety and expand your genre preference...

Must-read fashion/ photography books;

Vogue 100 (exhibition)
Alexander McQueen (exhibition)
Teen Vogue Handbook
Unseen Vogue
Coco Chanel "The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon"
The Portrait of a Photographer - Diane Arbus
How to be Parisian (Wherever you are)
Humans of New York - Brandon Stanton

Personal favourites:

Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
Before I go to Sleep - SJ Watson
Elsewhere - Gabrielle Zevin
The Perks of being a Wallflower - Stephen Chomsky
The Divergent Series (1000x better than the films) - Veronica Roth
Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green
Looking for Alaska - John Green

My summer reading list:

The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins
Girl with a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier
The Portrait of a Photographer
Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess

Any more recommendations?

Happy reading!
