Well I’m back! Finally! I’m sorry for being so quiet lately—school got so busy these past few weeks, I barely had time to breathe! But now that’s done and over with and I only have to worry about one take home final exam due the 16th and a sit-in final exam on the 18th. THEN if all goes well and I pass all my classes, I’ll officially be an university graduate!!
Which is why I’m super excited to share with you all the books I plan on reading this winter. Because I’ll actually have the time! (My Fall list fell WAY flat.) So here are the books I can’t wait to start reading:
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: I haven’t picked these books up since the last film came out, so it’s high time I immerse myself in my favourite world again. I miss Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and The Burrow. I do plan on dedicating a couple of weeks to this series, quite happily!
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey: I’ve been wanting to get this book forever, and now that snow is on the ground, it’s just the perfect time to start reading it.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth: Filip bought me this final book for my birthday and I haven’t had time to start it, so I can’t wait to open it up. I’ve heard many good and bad things about the book but still haven’t read any spoilers (go me!), so I’m excited to see what my thoughts are.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: I wanted to read this book before the movie came out, but that never happened. So I really need to read it this winter and watch the movie when it comes out on DVD.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore: Again, I’ve heard really great things about this book and I’m in a fantasy/adventure kick, so it seems like a great book to begin.
Marley and Me by Josh Grogan: I like a good cry, and who doesn’t like to cry over the holidays?
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert and The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: I’ve one of Penguin Canada’s newest Star Bloggers, and as such, I need to read both these books before the end of the month. Think I can do it?
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson: After the weep-fest I’m sure will be Marley and Me, I know I’ll need a good laugh. And my friend promised me that this book is hilarious.
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer: The same friend who recommended the above book to me as sworn that Between the Lines is basically written for me. So now I HAVE to read it!
