Book Wormin It!Posted on the 26 June 2012 by Jessicavenoy
In first grade, there was the book cave...a few tables pushed together with a black sheet draped over them and flashlights scattered inside. I also remember my mom reading to my brother & I during bath time every night. I've always been captivated by the art of words & storytelling. In high school I would sometimes stay home rather than hanging out with my friends, because I was so engrossed in a story #nerdalert! Okay, I still do that now...
My love for reading has only grown as I've gotten older. So today I want to share with you some books that are on my ever-growing "To Read" list :)
one. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell Not sure why I haven't read this yet? I really need to get with the times.
two. The Great Gatsy by F. Scott Fitzgerald I read this in high school, but I want to reread it since the movie is coming out soon!
three. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak I keep seeing this book all over the place, so I should probably give it a go.
four. Pure by Julianna Baggott The first in a series that was recommended to me by Sara.
five. Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer This is an incomplete work; one of the drafts got leaked online in 2008 so Meyer postponed finishing it. It is Twilight but from Edward's point of view.
six. Bossypants by Tina Fey I've been wanting to read this book because Tina Fey is hilarious, and Sara's post pushed me over the edge to finally add it to my list!
seven. The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien Adam is by no means a reader but is so excited about this book becoming a movie so I need to hurry up and read it before the movie comes out!
eight. Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares #5 in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series...I wasn't aware that there was a 5th one! Apparently it talks about the girls' lives after 10 years have gone by.
nine. A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers Redeeming Love (also by this author) is one of my all time favorite books, so I want to read this one! This is the first one in the Mark of the Lion series...I want to read them all.
ten. Explosion in Paris by Linda Masemore Pirrung I know nothing about this book, but I keep seeing it on GoodReads and the reviews that it received are through the roof!
Are there any books that you've read that you think I just can't go on without reading?! I'd love to hear about them!
