On My Reading List

For this first time in awhile, I was actually able to get some reading in this past week. For whatever reason, I always have a plethora of books loaded to my Kindle que, but never seem to get around to reading them. I absolutely love reading, and it's truly one of the most relaxing, wonderful experiences to me. While lately I've gotten a bit caught up in life, deterring me from my reading, I'm hoping to change that in the coming weeks and make some time to just sit back, relax and read. So I thought I'd share a few books with you guys that I either have read recently and loved, or ones that are currently on my reading list.

Paper Towns by John Green: This is actually my most recent read, and I truly cannot say enough good things about it. Jake always makes fun of me for reading Young Adult books, but I'd argue that there are some really well-written ones out there! John Green is an excellent writer, and I always find his books can be enjoyed by any age. Paper Towns is about high school-er Quentin, who is hopelessly in love with his mysterious, beautiful next door neighbor Margo Roth Spiegelman. One night, after not really interacting for years, Margo sneaks into Quentin's house and asks him to go on a all-night revenge quest with her. The next day, however, Margo has disappeared. This leads Quentin and his friends on a journey to try and find her, as well as getting to know her along the way.

#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso: This has been on my reading list forever at this point, and I keep kicking myself for not having read it earlier. Written by the founder of Nasty Gal, I have heard that this book is bother inspiring and incredibly fun to read. I currently have plans of starting my own business (which you will be hearing a lot more about in the future, I can promise) and I think this book is going to be the perfect read for a little inspiration.

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes: I have a feeling I've written about this book before, but it bears repeating because this book is amazing. I don't think I've ever gone through as a wide a range of emotions reading a book before, but with this one I was laughing, smiling, and crying as I turned each page (quite a lovely mental image). The novel follows Louisa, a twenty-something English woman without any real plans for her life. She ends up taking a job as a caretaker for Will, a quadriplegic mulch-millionaire who is angry and bitter with the world. I won't give too much away, but the story is absolutely beautiful and makes for one of the most captivating books I've ever read.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: Another one on my reading list, this story follows a socially awkward genetics professor in his search for the perfect wife. I've heard it described as a very sweet romantic comedy, which sounds right up my alley. Apparently this was the debut novel for Simsion, though I've seen several different books by her recently, so I'm excited to read some of her writing!
