I come from a family of readers. My mom and sister have totes full of library books checked out at all times. I remember when the Harry Potter books were released my dad and I would sneak into my sisters room while she was asleep to steal our copy to read it. If you come to my house on the weekends you’ll probably see one of my family members reading on a couch (or floor), while I ahem sew.
While I don’t read during the day much myself (unless it’s at the gym to keep me going on a cardio machine) I’ve become addicted to reading every night when I get in bed. Even if it’s 3 am (like it’s been for the last month) my brain is going crazy so the reading helps it shut down and lets me sleep better. The problem is my current ‘to read’ list is weak. I’m wondering if any of you have some good book suggestions.
You can see some of the books I’ve recently enjoyed on my goodreads account (which I highly recommend if you’re a reader). Some of them include the Hunger Games, Incarceron, The Host, and Percy Jackson books. My default is Young Adult fiction (usually fantasy or sci-fi, hence my Potter obsession) but I really like other books like The Help, Escape, and Water for Elephants. To be honest it’s harder for me to find those kind of books (it’s just more work than looking at a YA reading list you know) but I do enjoy them just as much. I’m not sure how to search for them. I’m supposed to read so much non-fiction i.e. philosophy for my
stupid dissertation so when I read for fun, I mostly read fiction but I’m open to non-fiction if it’s story like (if that makes sense).
So … do you have any book recommendations for me?
