The Books I’m Currently Reading

hey guys! welcome back to another post where you get to have an inside look at my random obsessions! the obsession of the day is….. reading! i am a TOTAL reading fanatic! sit me down with a good book and i will be thoroughly entertained for the rest of the day! reading is just… ughhh… its amazing!! you can get lost in a world that isn’t your own, and become the characters that you’re reading about! you feel all the emotions they’re feeling, all the struggles feel like they’re your own; everything about them becomes you! reading is an amazing experience and i wouldn’t trade it for the world! not only am i a reader, but i’m also a reader who reads like 10 books at the same time ๐Ÿ˜ฌ my mom always asks me how i keep up with all the different story lines, and to be honest, i really don’t know. once i get to a boring part of one book, i move onto another one for a while, keep doing that until i’m done with the books ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. Never had to read To Kill a Mockingbird for school. While I always enjoyed reading, I never was the biggest fan of required reads.

        Narnia and Harry Potter were most responsible for my love for fantasy. As for the classics, it was a combo of A Christmas Carol and Les Misรฉrables

          1. In high school, I literally was telling myself I will never love a tragedy. That was part of the problem with high school required reads

            By the way, Les Mis was what made me learn to love tragedy. Started on the musical and eventually read the book

            1. yes and even with books that have the potential to be good, the teachers drag it out so much that it isn’t interesting anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚

              ya i can’t wait to watch the musical! i’ve already read the adbridged version of les mis, but now i’m reading the full version. me and my mom are going to watch it together soon.

  3. Nice post! I read the Divergent series and it was so good!! The last book I didnโ€™t like too much at first, but by the end I accepted it. Hey, Les Misรฉrables! I watched the movie with my mom, and we have tickets to see the play at a local theater this summer, but Iโ€™ve never read the book. I plan to though!

      1. Ikr!? Yes, the movie is good!! Make sure there are no distractions around you because it ruins the “vibe”. My sister talked through the whole movie and so I couldn’t dive in as much as I would have liked.๐Ÿ˜” Also there are parts to skip, buuut it’s still rly good! Reading the book is one of my goals for the year!
