6 Month Check In

July 4, 2018

I’ve been traveling for just over 6 months now. Since the last check in, I have grown, learnt, and experienced more than I can fathom.

With traveling alone, I have a lot of time to read. So, I thought I’d share the list of books I’ve read during this 6 months of traveling! Most books I found at hostel book exchanges, others I found at quirky book stores.

Anyways, here’s the list!

  • Alias Grace, By Margaret Atwood
  • Me Before You, By Jojo Moyes
  • Me After You, By Jojo Moyes
  • The Dead Husband Project, By Sarah Maheen Sirk
  • Sophie’s World, By Jostein Gaarder
  • The God of Small Things, By Arundhati Roy
  • A Fortune-Teller Told Me, By Tiziano Terzani
  • Shantaram, By Gregory David Roberts
  • The Pact, By Jodi Picoult
  • The Diamond as Big as the Ritz and other stories, By F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Wuthering Heights, By Emily Bronte
  • The Power, By Naomi Alderman
  • Elizabeth is Missing, By Emma Healey
  • One Day, By David Nicholls
  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, By Gail Honeymoon
  • Tender is the Night, By F. Scott Fitzgerald

So! As you can see, I have spent a lot of time reading in cafe’s, parks, airports, etc. during my time traveling. I try to indulge in a healthy mix of classics, educational books, and “easy reads”.

Now I’ll share my current top 5 recommended books (in no particular order):

  1. Alias Grace, By Margaret Atwood
  2. The Power, By Naomi Alderman
  3. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, By Gail Honeymoon
  4. Shantaram, By Gregory David Roberts
  5. Anything by F. Scott Fitzgerald – this dude is just my favourite of all time, can’t go wrong with him

If I could recommend one book in particular for my fellow women to read it would be – The Power, By Naomi Alderman. It is a fictional, futuristic story in which gender roles have completely flipped. I won’t say anything more, but I couldn’t put it down and it is super relevant to today’s society.

To conclude, I am still doing well and really enjoying exploring myself and the world.

XO – Kris
