There are so many books I plan to read this winter break, but here is my “realistic” To Be Read list.
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth: Trying this again since I’m apparently the only one left who hasn’t read/loved it. I’m already hooked back in though. OOPS.
2. This One is Mine by Maria Semple: I loved Where’d You Go, Berdadette so much, and can’t wait to read more from Maria Semple.
3. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider: This is one of those books I pick up and read some of every time I’m at Barnes and Noble but have yet to buy, but I will be changing that very soon. It also seems very John Green-esque, which I love.
4. The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson: I’m so excited to see what the last envelope says, eeep! Even though she basically figured it out, I don’t know. I love Maureen Johnson. So if a bookstore near me could get this in, I would be very happy.
5. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell: Another one I’ve heard nothing but good things about but have yet to read. I have it sitting on my shelf but it just seems very intimidating, so it’ll be perfect for winter break when I have nothing else to do but read.
6. Code Name Verity by Rachel Wein: I need to give this another chance. I’ve heard it takes ~100 pages or so to really get into this. I haven’t had the patience for it yet.
7. Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen: I wrote about this on my Make a Wish(list) post, but I am SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.
8. Just One Day by Gayle Forman: This reminds me a lot of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and 13 Little Blue Envelopes because of the travel and falling in love and everything I love right now.
9. I am Malala by Malala Yousfzai: I’ve been meaning to read more nonfiction, and I think this is the perfect place to start.
10. Salinger by David Shields and Shane Salerno: Another non-fiction! I’m excited to read this and learn more about the reclusive Salinger!
