If you haven’t already guessed from a quick scroll through my blog, I love books. ILOVETHEMSOMUCH!
And in a recent post, I gave you lovely folks a few suggestions of what to read when you’re not sure what to read next. But in that post, I mentioned that I didn’t really find myself struggling with the “what’s next?!” question any longer, as I’ve got SUCH a big pile of books sitting on my shelf, just waiting to have their pages turned, and words ingested.
Today, I’m sharing a few of the books I’m planning on reading soon, and why they’re on my hallowed shelf.
- The Sisterhood, by Bobbie Houston- I saw this in the Faith Mission bookshop last week and thought ‘I don’t know this woman, but I’ll give it a go!’ I liked the sound of this book from the blurb- I’m all about girls lifting each other up, instead of trampling on each other to get to the top. I’ve been seriously loving books like Lysa TerKeurst’s Uninvited and The Best Yes, so here’s hoping for something similar! Also, one of my besties is a girl ‘Bobbie’, so that played a part in my choosing this book.
2. Orlando, by Virginia Woolf- I reeeeeeeeally want to try reading more Woolf! We studied To The Lighthouse a few years ago, which was interesting, but I’m yet to properly read any other Woolf-ian classics. Hopefully, Orlando will spark an interest!
3. Go Set A Watchman, by Harper Lee- or is it?!!? I know, I know, there’s a whole lot of controversy surrounding this book, and when/how it was published. But as a lover of TKAM, I really want to read this! I don’t care if it’s not the same, and I don’t care if it’s not as good (I mean, how could ANYTHING be as good?!), I just want to be able to say I’ve read it. I’ll give it my best shot!!
(PS- If you haven’t read To Kill A Mockingbird, do! it’s honestly one of the best books I’ve ever read.)
So, there are a few of the livres sitting on my bookshelf right now- how about you guys? What’s on your ‘To Be Read’ list?
