There are so many books that I want to read but I never have the time to just sit down and become absorbed into it. That takes time.
I want to savor each and every word, feel it in my thoughts, in my heart. I want to let it touch my soul. I want to take a piece of it with me into the next untold story.
Here are just a few in no particular order:
- 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
- Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
- The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)
- All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
- Quiet: The Power of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
- A Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
- Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace- I read that every English major should read this as this book is up their alley. Based on the reviews, it definitely looks intimidating with all the footnotes and all. I mean, look at it 😱 It’s a whole anthology!
- The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
- Swamplandia! by Karen Russell
- Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo
- Yes Please by Amy Poehler
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
- Paradise Lost by John Milton- This one I want to re-read. I read it in college amidst 5 other courses and didn’t really get to absorb it all in. (Plus, I may have skimmed/skipped a few chapters for times sake ^^”)
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville- I also want to re-read this one; however, this time at a much more normal pace rather than eleven chapters a night 😕
Has anyone read any one if these? What were your experiences while reading it/them? Please share in the comments below 😊
