The title of today’s challenge is the books in my to read list, but a more accurate one would be which books are not in my to read list! According to my Goodreads account, I have over 100 books on my to read list! That is a lot of books! Instead of trying to list them all, I want to talk about a few of the books I am looking forward to reading this summer!
Room by Emma Donoghue
Room is the story of Jack, Ma, and the Room they live in. I didn’t hear about the book until the movie starring Brie Larson was released but was immediately fascinated by the story when I heard of it. Growing up I avoided emotional stories like this. Now I am ready to dive into the story!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The Nightingale is the about two sister’s separate journeys during World War II. It’s the newest book on this list since it was first published in 2015 but it is the one I have heard a lot about! I have read many reviews online but became really interested when one of my friends recommended it. I’m also drawn to the story of sisters. I myself have an older sister and we have a very strong bond, so I am very excited to learn about these sister’s paths and the relationship they share.
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
The Paris Wife is based on Hadley Richardson, Ernest Hemingway’s first wife, and her time with him in Paris. Although it was published in 2011, I didn’t hear about it until I went to the Ernest Hemingway House over this last spring break. After learning about Hemingway and his many wives, this book seemed like a must read!
