I love to read. Cuddling up with a great book and a hot cup of tea just makes me happy. Then I get busy with life. In 2010 I think the only time I actually read a book was while I was in Europe. I will not let that happen this year! So here is a quick reading list I came up with to start off the year on a better foot. Some are old classics, some are new recommendations, some are young adult classics for when I feel like going back to simpler times.
So I decided to start the year off with The Giver because it is a super quick read and I’ve been meaning to read it for about 15 years now. I read about 3/4 of it on a plane ride from Washington D.C. to Nashville and I have to say that I’m actually glad that I didn’t read it as a kid because I don’t think I could have appreciated it’s painful, beautiful truth as I do now as an adult. The only thing I wish is that it was about 200 pages longer. I didn’t want it to end as quickly as it did.
So next up is The Hunger Games. I’ve read and heard so much about this series that I just had to pick it up. Hopefully it will live up to all the hype!
What are you reading? Any recommendations?
I’ll be sure to update when I finish each of them to let you know how they are!
