The Books I'll Read When I'm Not Swamped With Classwork.

The spring semester of my junior year begins on Monday and I am both super excited about it and also dreading the fact that this semester is going to be one of my hardest yet. I'm taking one of my final honors requirements early this semester, along with 16 other hours of upper level English courses. And while I'm UBER pumped that this means I'm even closer to graduation, it also means that I'm going to be spending a lot more time in my room doing classwork. Not to mention Spanish 4. I'm awful with Spanish but have to have through 4 for my degree...and it's the struggle bus life for that class.

But to make life a little bit better, I'm going to try to set aside time to read a few books that aren't part of my classwork. I love to read and actually do on a pretty regular basis, but I also tend to read for hours on end and forget who and where I am. Even though I wish that could continue...I won't really have time to do that after Monday. But for the few precious days/hours that I do have, I'll be reading these:

And these are only 10 of ALL the books I want to read or could possibly read.
If you have any recommendations, you should let me know as well! I'm absolutely always up for new worlds! And I'm actually to the point that I probably need a new bookshelf for my room, even though I'm not exactly sure where it would go since I've pretty much filled the empty floor space, but whatevs.

  1. "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and "Divergent" are amazing! After reading "Divergent" you're going to want to buy the next two books in the series also. It only took me about 8 hours to read "Divergent" in full over the weekend. "It's Kind of a Funny Story" is one of those that really make you think. I got completely enthralled with the story and I'm sure you will too! I haven't read any of the other books! You'll have to let me know your favorites!

  2. I want to read the goldfinch next! i'm on the last book in the divergent series right now and have liked it so far - they've all been quick reads for sure.

  3. Hi I am a new follower to your lovely blog (via GFC) and found you through Let's Be Friend's Blog Hop. I would love it if you follow me back.

    my blog:

    1. free sci fi best seller

  4. That's so great that you love to read! I've kind of gotten a little spoiled with listening to audiobooks, but I still like to read when I can! These all look great - I'd love to read some reviews when you're finished!

  5. The book thief is my favourite book of all time, its so so so good! I hope you love it as much as I do. I also just finished reading the Goldfinch was very different to what I expected but still amazing.
    Good luck with all your class work too!!

  6. Sweet! Most of them are on my list too! :)

  7. ugh these all look great...there's not enough time in the world! i hope you do reviews :)

  8. Eep! I just love reading. I want to read a few of these books too! I have been so curious about what all the Game of Thrones hype is about, so I would love to dive into that one. I read Divergent and loved it and have been wanting to read the next two books. I just wish I had more time to read!

  9. I saw the preview for Divergent at the movie theater and thought I should attempt to read another trilogy. My husband is a literary junkie and really wanted me to read The Grapes of Wrath and then East of Eden so that's what's on my list for now. But The Beautiful Project and It's Kind of a Funny Story look like they be good ones.

  10. I love this! I've read a few of these and have been wanting to read a few of the others! I'm just barely discovering your blog, so I don't know what kinds of books you like, but my absolute favorite is Ender's Game. If you haven't read it, you should!

  11. For some reason, 2 of your books aren't loading on my end! From the ones I can see...I only read Divergent {LOVED it} will def check these out!

  12. I'll have to check a few of these out! Thanks for linking up!

  13. I've heard so much about Divergent! It's not a book I would normally read but I think I'm going to check it out. Good luck with this semester - you are so close to being done! :)

  14. so many of these I want to read!
    I'm hoping to hop on the divergent train and read all 3 before the first movie comes out in march
    I've read beautiful creatures (and own the movie!) it's good but takes a little while to really get in to.
    & I've heard fabulous things about the book thief - the trailer for the movie looks incredible!

  15. This should keep you busy for awhile; it looks like a good list to me.

  16. Beautiful Creatures was wonderful!!

  17. I see some new books to add to my tbr list. I keep hearing about Beautiful Creatures and The Book Thief but haven't purchased them yet.

  18. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying A Game of Thrones. I'm making my way through the ASoIaF series as we speak. I loving it and that's no surprise given how obsessed I am with the show.


comment, encourage, or tell me happy thoughts.
any of the three will do. :)
