My Reading List

Hello everyone!

 

Having a month off from school gave me some time to evaluate my fun reading materials.  Most recently, I got halfway through the second Game of Thrones book and decided I did not need to read the book AND watch the show, so I gave up.  I normally read the book if it turns into a movie, but I couldn’t justify spending that much time on an entire TV series and a series of books.  It was exhausting.

 

For the time being, I’m going to read a few books that are not a part of a series.  Phew!  I received a few recommendations from friends that moved to the top of my reading list.
I typically read historical fiction, popular fiction, sci-fi/fantasy/epics, and non-fiction…so…most things.

 

Here’s what’s on my list so far:

There are definitely more to read than this, but these particular ones caught my eye.  I’m taking a few on my Kindle for the honeymoon and I’ll report back with my thoughts.
What have you read lately that you fell in love with?

One thought on “My Reading List

  1. I heard an interview about Wild – it sounded really interesting! I’d also love to read the Eggers book – heard amazing things about it. HRH still takes so much of my time that I don’t have much reading time, although I have to get through The Scarlet Pimpernel for school (again). Thankfully, I have that on the iPad. I also joined a running reading group, so hopefully I can get those done.
