Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! For today’s post I’m going to talk about books I’ve been loving recently, as well as a few I have yet to read. Since it’s the start of November, this is going to serve as my reading “bucket list” for the month, where I can put what I’ve read in the past month and what I hope to read this month.
All of the photos of my books were taken on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. If you’re interested, I will post a review of the camera and compare the three lenses!
As of lately, I’ve been very into medical and scientific books. A few of my favorites right now are Diagnosis by Lisa Sanders. I loved how interesting all of the stories were, and the division of the book into common symptoms made it more interesting to read. There is also a Netflix series based on this book that I will hopefully be watching soon, and maybe reviewing on here!
Another two books that are more on the scientific side I really enjoy are Survival of the Sickest by Sharon Moalem and Your Inner Fish: A Journey Into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body Neil Shubin. Survival of the Sickest talks disease has shaped the evolution of species, and Your Inner Fish is essentially the history of human evolution. Both were very interesting and entertaining, and I didn’t feel like I was reading a scientific book. There is also a TV series for Your Inner Fish, which hopefully I can watch and maybe review soon. My copies of these books are definitely loved, and are a bit worn from reading and traveling with me.
A few books and other reading materials that I picked up that I’ve yet to read are Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, Under the Knife: A History of Surgery in 28 Remarkable Operations by Arnold van de Laar, and many more. I got a version of “Divine Comedy” that has both the English and the Italian translations, and I’m really excited to read both even though I don’t know a single word of Italian. I think the diction and syntax will be as beautiful as the words, and I also have the English translations handy right on the other side of the page!
Another book I’m excited to read is Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. I recently read Outliers for school and really enjoyed it, so I was eager to pick up this book.
That’s it for today’s post, I hope you enjoyed it. I’ll do another updated list in the future of what I’m reading, and I’ll include my reviews of some of the books I’ve yet to read that are on this list. See you all soon for another post!
