I’ve been logging every single book I read so far this year! GoodReads is great for seeing other user reviews and keeping track of books you have already read/want to read. Making this goal way easier! :) 17 months ago
I’ve started using the website 50BookPledge and its really awesome! It definitely helps to keep all my books organized and is a good way to find new books to read! 18 months ago
A FANTASTIC read. Made me cry more than once, and it more than just a typical love story. About second chances and dealing with our pasts, this book can and will touch many people for altogether different reasons. Another MUST read. 2 years ago
This book was incredibly disturbing and eye opening. It’s about a woman being held prisoner by a sadistic monster who impregnates her. She then has to give birth in a tiny room, raising this child who knows nothing but the limits of the room and who grows up believing there is nothing but Room. A fictional tale that is too realistic for comfort. A must read. 2 years ago
So I’ve just been totally failing at this lately,
BUT. I’m starting to get back into it AGAIN!
Since my last post I’ve only read like 3 books
But I’m really gonna start doing this again!
Currently reading The Help!
It’s fantastic so far, and I’m sure it will only get better. :) 2 years ago
“Heaven Is For Real” was an AMAZING book.
Still highly recommended!!
Currently getting started on “Anna Karenina” :) 2 years ago
I’m currently reading and almost finished “Heaven is For Real” by Todd Burpo.
It is an EXCELLENT book; very thought-provoking.
Highly recommended. 2 years ago
So I just finished the book “The Language of the Sea” by James Macmanus.
It was either absolutely genius, or terrible. I haven’t quite deicded yet.
It’s about a man obsessed with marine biology, mainly seals.
He thinks that marine biology institutes focus too much on expanding our knowledge of what we do know, instead of exploring the unknown. He makes these opinions very clear, and to his boss, expresses these opinions too harshly.
His marriage is failing,
he gets fired from the job he loves.
and then he disappears.
On a last boating trip out to a very highly seal populated area with his students, he gets swept overboard by an unseen intense storm.
Assumed dead, people stop searching for him. But his wife still has hope that somehow he has survived.
The ending completely shocked me. But like I said, I have yet to determine whether or not the ending was genius or stupidity.
A must read, either way. 2 years ago
So for English class we had to read a book called “The Lottery” by Beth Goobie. Most people who have read it for that class (and most people in my class) hated it, but I personally loved it. I guess I’m just an oddball, but I found it SO relative to the high school system..
It just really hit home with me. It comes HIGHLY recommended by me. (: 3 years ago
I guess the first step to this is actually reading a book…
don’t know why it takes so much motivation to read lately ! 3 years ago
