Then came college....
I read many great books in college, but I often felt like I couldn't read in my freetime because there was always some textbook glaring at me, demanding my attention. So I didn't read nearly as much as I did in high school. Luckily, I had some great professors in my writing and English classes that introduced me to new literature and in turn, my new writing style. It was a wonderful time, but when I got done with college, I was exhausted...and I fell out of reading more than I ever had before. I felt overwhelmed with all of the classics I still had not touched! There were so many contemporary novels that I needed to expose myself to! No reading was getting done and people still referred to me as this passionate reader! This madness had to stop!
And that brings us to today....
I am going to make a list of books that I will read before the end of this year. It's going to be a puny list because, A. this year is almost over and 2. This is the busiest time of the year for me. When 2016 rolls around I will make an official list of books for me to read over the course of that year! For now, here are the books I will read before the end of 2015 (Yay for making more goals for myself!)
1. Misery by Stephen King
I started this book a few months and it's a compelling but exhausting read. I keep taking mental breaks for both the sake of my sanity and my innocence. The much needed coffee breaks are a result of this book being so well written! You feel for this man trapped in the home of his "number one fan" and battling his addiction to painkillers to find his freedom.
2. You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir by Felicia Day
I bought this book the other day and it is such a relaxing read. Felicia Day, known work such as The Guild, tells the tale of her life and how she became the kick-butt nerd she is. I love when girl nerds are in the spotlight and I can strongly relate to her journey. I can't wait see more of her funny stories!
3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
I know there is going to be a least one more books mixed in with these, but let's start small and work out way out from there. Do you have any book recommendations for 2016? Any good books you can recommend about writing to help me prep for NaNoWriMo?
