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:
Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table by Ruth Reichl
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Dry by Augusten Burroughs
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggars (also What is the What)
The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead by David Shields
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Life Among Giants by Bll Roorbach
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.
