Day 7// What's on your current reading list? Or what have you read that you recommend?
I love books! I love curling up in comfy clothes and spending the afternoon reading; being captivated by the lives of the characters and their adventures. Yesterday I said I was reading a book called Alias Grace, yeah well, I gave that up. It just wasn't catching my attention.
So right now I'm not reading any "for fun" books. But I always have a list in mind of what I want to read next. On that list:
Different Seasons:: Shawshank Redemption is base off of this book and I would like to read the book before I see the movie.
The Time Keeper:: I love Mitch Albom and I want to read all of his books.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking:: this one has been on the list for a while and since I'm an introvert, I think it's worth a read.
And the Mountains Echoed:: A dear friend of mine bought A Thousand Splendid Suns for me for my 23rd birthday and I was so skeptical about reading, but you know, I can only resist a book for so long. I LOVED it and was so thankful she got me out of my usual story lines. So when I realized who the author was, I vowed to read all of his books. I'm most excited to read this one.
A Separate Peace:: I probably read three classic novels when I was in high school. I know, I'm really disappointed in my English teachers too. So I'm slowly trying to make my way through the classics. And this one has always stood out to me.
Now, on to some books that have managed to stick with me through the years:
The Harry Potter Series:: in case you missed it, I love Harry Potter! I spent almost an entire week blogging about it when Diagon Alley opened at Universal Studios. You can read them for yourself here, here, here, and here.
One Thousand Gifts:: I know it's one of the most popular books among Christian women right now, but if you haven't read it, go get it right now! It really is as good as everyone has hyped it up to be. Being thankful is NOT my spiritual gift and I really appreciate how honest Ann was about life, it's hardships and viewing them all in light of the gifts of God.
In fact, as I type this out, I'm thinking that I could do with reading this one again...and soon!
The Uglies Series:: A Utopian society where the best part about turning sixteen is becoming a "pretty." It's a fun, light read.
The Chronicles of Narina:: do y'all see a theme here? I enjoy a good series and this one is right up there with Harry Potter. It's one that I find myself constantly re-reading bits and pieces of. Perhaps it's time for me just to sit down and re-read them all.
What about you, have any good books you'd like to share? I'm always looking for new tales!
