BOOKS I INTEND TO READ BY THE END OF SUMMER (OR AT LEAST AFTER MY BAR FINALS)

QUOTE OF THE DAY: I've got to take a break, to be honest; I'm not even going to lie.-Puff Daddy aka Diddy.
 

Before anything, this post is probably my last post of anything serious, until after my Bar Finals in September when I start decrusting myself. I do not in any way regret running this blog on the side all this while. It’s been an exciting experience! My only regret so far, is that I was not able to post as often as I hoped to, and, to post on more quality content (Computers now insert emojis *FaintsTemporarily*).


I was at the Library on Saturday, when it dawned on me that there are certain books I would really want to read asides the Law Books which I have immersed myself in since December. Two books which I haven’t included in this list, but I’m longing to read are “The Law of Attraction”, and, “How to Kill a Mocking Bird.” If you know where I can buy these books at affordable prices in Lagos, be kind enough to tell me in the comment box below.


Death of a Princess: Not just because She is Harry’s Mommy, but, because she lived a selfless life worth emulating. Her death shocked the World. I share several similarities with this woman. Some of the causes she helped bring the spotlight to, are causes very dear to my heart. We were both painfully shy children, and, teenagers. Over the Years, I have followed her life, works, and well, Harry. In my view, Diana Princess of Wales, was a true English Rose not devoid of flaws.



Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl: For as long as I remember, this book has been on my reading list. As a child, my father introduced me to A LOT of documentaries, including the Jewish Fate in World War II. After my Mother taught me how to read, I was determined to read this book, but it was out of my reach because I didn’t know the name of the little girl. I have in fact started reading this wonderful book. I had to pause reading this book because I’m preparing for the almighty Bar Finals. From what I’ve read so far, Anne Frank lived a partially thorough teenage life, boys included. Please leave me no spoilers in the comments below.




I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS: To say I respect Dr. Maya Angelou even posthumously, is an understatement. I LOVE HER, period. By the way, did you know that on her birthdays, she sent Martin Luther King’s widow roses till her death?


LEARNING TO FLY an Autobiography of Victoria Beckham: Posh is someone I have given side attention to since 2013. Her other book my Mom bought for me got stolen by Wharf sharks (thieves), alongside other items. I had to balance myself as to not fall when I saw this book, Victoria Beckham was smiling in the back cover. She didn’t have that frigid-stone like look most people now see on her… She was, well, Posh.



Malcom X: I love Malcom regardless of what anybody might think about him. There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there concerning the real people who had him murdered. I believe reading this book will bring me closer to what he stood for, and, his visions.

That is why, the next book on my list won’t be much of a surprise to you.



His Autobiography! Guys, this one is published by Penguin Classics, the pages are soft, and the font is easy on the eye (which, is a major requirement for me). I already peeped into the book’s intro. You probably know that he was a Muslim before his death, but, did you know that his Daddy was a Baptist Preacher?!


If you have suggestions of any other books you will like me to read, please comment them below.




This post can be summarized as "by God's grace, see you in September. I've got to focus on my main priority at the moment, my exams." Also, this means there will be no birthday post here on the 9 of August....Honestly, this is a happy-sad moment for me, and I'll miss you.
I will reply all your comments as soon as I can.

Wishing You Love and Peace,
Alexandra.
