One of my most important “New Years Resolution”, has been to read more. I have a scary stack of books on my desk mocking my very existence. Every time I glance at the general direction of my desk they scream, “READ ME DAMMIT!“. Of course, instead of getting through my never ending stack of books I just continue adding more making the pile taller, taller and taller (soon I will have no more desk space!)
I suppose that is one of the biggest problem most bibliophiles have. Books, books and more books. I am not complaining, I love books and wish to own hundreds and hundreds of them, but being a college student… I spend most of my free time sleeping or attempting to socialize.
I feel incomplete though, I need to explore more worlds and live more lives.
Thus I have set upon a goal.
This year I promise myself to hopefully get through most of these books:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Of Neptune by Anna Banks
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Heroes of Olympus: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
100 Ways to Motivate Others by Chandler Ruchardson
How to be like Rich DeVos by Pat Williams
This Star Won’t Go Out by Esther Earl
Game of Thrones by George R.R Martin
Holes by Louis Sachar
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clark
The Lords of the Ring Trilogy by J.R.R Tolkien
The list may not seem like much, but I will accumulate more books as the year progresses making the list a never ending list.
This is my life. My beautiful life, and I love it.
