Day 2 of this blogging challenge set by Sharon’s Book Nook, has me telling listing books that I want to read. Now, if you refer to yesterday’s post, you will see that I mentioned that I have a list of books longer than years left in my life that I want to read. I need to get cracking on that list, and pronto! I have an eclectic taste in books, but I am not a fan of sticky-sweet romance novels or erotica. If you would like to be my friend on GoodReads, you can find me HERE! So, today I give you:
Day 2: Nine Books I Want To Read
I read about this book in one of those “Must Read” book lists. I cannot remember where I saw this particular list, but when I read the synopsis of the book, I immediately put it on my list.
The first book I read by Jonathan Tropper was This Is Where I Leave You, which was made into a movie and premiered at the beginning of the month. I loved the voice he gave his characters and I could not wait to look up other novels by him to add to my list!
My book club threw this book title around as a possible option for this month’s selection. I am a sucker for a book that tells a tale about a mother/daughter relationship. This one seems to be a light book to read.
I know a couple of people who are reading this book, and to be honest, this was not on my radar as an option at first. When I found out the premise of the book, I immediately added it. It is worth the look!
Here is where you begin to see my eclectic nature when it comes to reading. This is a book of poems about being a wife, but again, the synopsis of the book is what got me to add it.
Oh Mr. Green, how you made me cry. Yes, I am a lover of the young adult book, The Fault in Our Stars. I had to look up more from this author because, not since I was a teen, has an author brought me to tears. I enjoy his writing and I added this to my list as a second helping of him.
Every since I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. I went back to school to be a teacher as an adult, and circumstances in life forced me into a different direction. I do work in a school, however, and I see the differences in schools in different areas and it is deeply concerning. This book was listed on a friend’s most influential book list to her, and I had to add it.
This classic is on a lot of my friend’s most influential list, and it has always been on my list to read.
Again, this is another classic that has been on my list to read for years. I will get it in!!
What is on YOUR to-read list?
