"Day 6: Book that broke your heart"

My heart aches for the author.

"Day 5: Favorite Classic Novel"

More like a contemporary classic, but still seen as a classic nonetheless. The Kite Runner was such a good read.

"Day 3: Book you Did Not Finish"

Sorry, Orwell. I tried really hard to like this book and get through it but I lost interest about 2/3 of the way through. I have a bookmark in it that's still holding my place but I don't think I'm going to go back to it any time soon.

"Day 1: Favorite Book in a Series"

It's been a while since I visited this series. I don't remember what happened in the first three books so when I started reading this, the plot is lost on me. Should I set this down and reread the series? 🤔

Oh my goddess! I finally finished the series I fell in love with all those years ago. I forgot how much I truly enjoyed reading about the Nerd Herd's 🤓 adventures. This is also the first book EVER to make me cry! I don't get sappy easily when I'm reading but I couldn't help shed a couple of tears. I'm looking forward to reading the Otherworld novellas! 🌒🌕🌘 #ya #youngadult #nerdherd #hon

The Heart Principle | Helen Hoang
post image

I usually aim to finish 5 books in a year, which may not seem like a lot to some of you. This past year has been so hard though so I made a goal to finish at least one book. If I could finish just one book, then that would make me happy. I managed to finish two books this month, however! The small accomplishments matter, too.

Finally finished reading the second book in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. With the help of listening to the audio book during my commutes to and from work anyway! The books are quite long so having them read to me helps a lot or I wouldn't be able to get through them on my own. 😁

I love Hoang's books so much and I hope she writes more! I started this book last week during some down time at work but I haven't had a day to myself where I can just sit and read. Today was that day! I devoured this book in about 11 hours and I don't regret a single minute. The only time I set it down was when I needed a restroom break or for meal times. Every time I picked it back up, I couldn't help but to just read and read and read.

OMG this book!!! I needed a break from my heavier reading material and this definitely was a perfect novel for it. I gobbled this up in just a few days! Charming, sweet, and it tugged on my heart strings. My inner hopeless romantic is shouting with joy. #thekissquotient #romance #autism #aspergers

Outsider | Stephen King
post image

Working my first overnight shift in a long time. Slowly making my way through #TheOutsider by #StephenKing. So far, I really like this #murdermystery. I am assuming that the main character may have Dissociative Identity Disorder. I wish the narrator focused more on Coach T than any other character... I really want to get inside this guy's head.

B&N haul from earlier today! These classics are on sale for $5.00 a pop. My cousin is currently reading Dracula but she's not getting into it too much. I thought it would be nice if I started it after I finish 1984. I was also told to give Wuthering Heights a try by one of my English professors, and a friend of mine is obsessed with Frankenstein. Let's see what they're all about!

Day 27: The most surprising plot twist or ending

The most current plot twist that I've read was this one in George Orwell's 1984. Who the hell just gives someone a note that only says "I love you" ?! And it's done by a minor character that the Protagonist hates, btw. Only until Winston knows what Julia is really all about. @speljamr and I had the same ? reaction.

Side note: Chocolate rationing?! Despicable.

The Namesake | Jhumpa Lahiri
post image

Day 26: A book that changed your opinion about something

The Namesake. This is probably the first book I've read involving Indian culture. I don't know what it's like to be "Brown". I really liked this book, and the film adaptation. The culture is vibrant and intimate in so many different ways. The meaning of the title is also significant: I didn't know that so much weight could be put into naming a child.

Day 25: A character who you can relate to the most

Hermione Granger. I'm sure she is a popular choice, but Hermione resonates with me. I even named a dwarf hamster after her. I always thought that my book smarts and thirst for knowledge was one of my biggest strengths. I've also learned to stand up for what's right for my own well being, and for the sake of others. Oh, and I also had a crush on Ron at one point too, haha.

Day 24: A book that you wish more people would've read

It's been a while since I started the series so I wouldn't be able to say much about it except for the fact that it's pretty good. YA fiction with supernatural romance and some suspense and thrills thrown in with evil Faeries? Yes.

Day 22: A book that makes you cry

Not one book has moved me to tears yet, but I will say that these stories made my heart ache. Ellen Hopkins does a good job of writing realistic YA fiction novels that are based on very real problems that happen every day. In Tricks and Traffick, Hopkins narrates the lives of a few teenagers that were unfortunately misdirected into human trafficking.

Day 21: The first novel you remember reading

It was such a nice day in spring. I had a huge oak (?) tree in the front yard of the house I grew up in. I laid under the tree and read and read and read. Purge by Sarah Darer Littman was the first ever novel that I read cover to cover on my own. I remember the distinct feeling of accomplishment and amazement with myself and I had to keep reading... So I grabbed another book and went back to my tree.

Day 20: Favorite romance book

Bared to You is the first book in the Crossfire novels written by Sylvia Day. There are a lot of similarities between this series and the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, but these books are so much better. Eva and Gideon are inseparable no matter what they go through and that kind of passion and love is somewhat rare now. It's refreshing, seriously steamy, and kind of kinky. 😉
