Books I'm Reading

I used to love reading when I was younger. I would literally come home from school, hole up in my room for hours on end, and read my many many books - some of them over and over again. Now that I'm older, I still enjoy reading but I usually gravitate towards the online variety... blogs, e-mails, websites, you name it. Even when I do sit down to read a physical novel, I find that I am very easily distracted by the Internet. I ordered a bunch of books recently so I am going to try to set aside at least 2 hours a week to just read. my MacBook will be turned off. My iPhone will banned from being by my side.

Here are some of the books I purchased a few months ago.



Maze Runner series: I was really craving some easy reads so this was the first set of books I read. I got through them quickly but these books have already been donated so that should tell you how much I enjoyed them.

Uglies series: I am on the fence about this series. I felt they were decent books with some interesting content but I was a little frustrated with the writing and the pace. I felt the stories could have been taken so much further.

Watership Down: This is a classic but I had actually never read it. It took me a very long time to get into this book but, when i finally did, the story moved me and stayed with me for a long time even after I read the last page. I would read this book again.

Unbroken: I just started reading this and it is very well written. However, I put it down and I haven't picked it back up for a couple of weeks now. I want to read it but always forget or just can't find the time. I have such bad reading habits!

Divergent: Leesh recommended this book to me so of course I picked it up. I haven't read it yet but I've already purchased Insurgent too. I'm holding off on reading these because I'm worried I'll like the books so much, I'll be upset the third book isn't out yet. Yes, I'm silly like that!

Lover's Dictionary: This book is so thin and light that I'm planning to bring it with me on vacation in November to read on the beach. I plan to read a few pages, then take a nap. Read a few pages, then people-watch. Read a few pages, then have a snack. Read a few pages, then dip my toes in the ocean.

Have you read any good books recently? If so, please share! I am always looking for books to add to my list. :)
