I’ve noticed a lot of different book blogs as well as book vlogs talk about their books “to be read” and I love reading and watching those kind of posts/uploads, so I’ve decided to make one myself. I think it will also hold me accountable for reading because I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels this way, but sometimes it just takes me so long to get into the habit of reading, though it is the thing I love the most, it can be really difficult sometimes.
But this, this will hold me accountable and I’m excited to share it! I’ll also make an update at the end of the month about which ones I’ve actually finished or not and like my favorites, whatever.
But!! I’m going to try and finish them all. I’m really trying to become a better reader and all that and read things I enjoy and am interested in. I need to give myself a little hobby, keep my mind occupied.
So, here is the list of all the books I will finish this month (hopefully!):
Simon vs. the Homo-Sapiens Agenda–Becky Albertali
- I started reading this one last month, after borrowing it from my friend, and just haven’t had the chance to finish it, though it will be finished this month!! I promise! I was really trying to finish it before May was over, but here we are today in June, still not done reading it.
- I saw the movie when it came out a few months ago, and adored it. I cried throughout the film, and I am just so happy it was received as well as it was. I cannot wait to finish reading this one.
- how this book appeared on my bookshelf (is this an interesting feature for me to include or nah? let me know): borrowed from a friend (and will return after i’m done with it, don’t worry maggie!!)
Sense and Sensibility –Jane Austen
- Okay, I know reading this just now makes me seem like the worst Jane Austen fan ever, and I’m sorry. Please don’t judge me. Because I’m genuinely excited to start reading this. I love escaping into this 19th century world and cannot wait to gain some really great insights from my queen herself. I for sure will be writing about this novel soon. I already can feel it.
- how this book appeared on my bookshelf: picked this up from Barnes and Noble on a recent trip there with my dad
Secrets for the Mad: Obsessions, Confessions, and Life Lessons–Dodie Clark
- I got this for my birthday last December and again, haven’t had the chance to read it–until now. I really love Dodie’s videos and music, I literally listen to her music on repeat most days. I am really excited to read all her thoughts because I feel like she has such a beautiful way of reacting to the world around her.
- I also definitely would love to talk more about mental health, as I know Dodie does in this book, because I think it’s really important. I think reading is a good thing to help to heal your mind.
- how this book appeared on my bookshelf: a birthday gift from my family
Winnie the Pooh–A.A. Milne
- This is something I’ve been dying to read since I was a child. The Winnie the Pooh Disney movies were the ones that I would request to watch over and over and over again, until my parents were ready to give me up for adoption. Kidding. These stories though, are so important to me and my family, so I am happy to say that it is now time to finally read this one. Oh, bother. And once I’m finished with this one, I will read the others, of course. Maybe even more summer reading?
- how this book appeared on my bookshelf: picked this up at the Friends of the Library used book sale (my favorite place ever)
I will keep the blog updated with my accomplishments in reading this month, but until then I better get started reading these books. Also, I know I’m posting this a few days into June, but that only makes my job harder. Don’t worry about it. Thanks guys, and see you soon.
