Reading Challenge

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Good Reads is pretty much my favorite way to keep track of what I'm reading. My list for 2015 is coming together and Anne's reading challenge seems like a fun way to branch out a bit. Here are just a few of the books I'm looking forward to reading this year!

"The Maze Runner" by James Dashner // We watched the movie over Christmas vacation with the Walkers. It fits the "a book I've been meaning to read" category and the movie made me pretty sure that I'll love it.

"The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins // I hope this one is clean! I'll read it for "a book published this year" or maybe "a book you chose because of the cover" instead. 

"The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak // This book has been on my list since last summer. Every time I bring it up, somebody is sure to encourage me that I MUST read it. Obviously, it's the perfect book for the "a book 'everyone' has read but you" category!

"A Severed Wasp" by Madeleine L'Engle // This one seems like the perfect book for the "a book by a favorite author" category. I read the first book in this little mini series last fall and loved it. Needless to say, I've been looking forward to this one ever since.

"The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath // I've read a lot of assigned books, but this one has never been assigned to me. When I read it I'll be checking off the square for the "a book you should have read in high school" category.

What are three books that you are looking forward to reading this year?

  1. Great list! I haven't picked up a book since November but am starting to feel the urge to get back to it.

  2. Both The Maze Runner and The Book Thief are excellent. Though the latter definitely was an emotional read.

  3. I loved the book thief! Interested to know what you think of the maze runner. I thought it was ok.

  4. You haven't read The Book Thief??? I was going to bring that one up the other day when we were talking, but I was SURE you had read it. Oh my goodness. I'm so glad that is on your list. Please read it ASAP because I think you are going to love it. Fair warning, it may make you cry. I ugly cried through like the last two or three chapters. Such a wonderful book! One of my top favorites now. There, that is my encouragement for you to read it. haha


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
