I started my 5 Year To-Do List, and one of the things 'to do' is to read 500 books. Holy Jeeze! What did I get myself in to? That's 100 books a year, and honestly, if I had 100 books that I loved I could knock that out in a few months. The problem is, when I don't get into a book, I read at about the pace of a snail.
Case in point, I read the last Harry Potter (off-topic, if you love HP as much as I do, check out this site! It's like crack. Harry Potter wiki), Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows in roughly 4 hours. Yet, I've been trying to force myself through the book O, Juliet for about three weeks now. I'm over halfway done, and I hate to not finish something I'm so invested in, but dang it. The book is boring. Plus, since it's an adaption of Romeo and Juliet, I know how it ends.
So I was faced with the dilemma of just giving up and moving on to other books, or trying to finish, and wasting more precious weeks muddling through this book.
I finally gave up. Put some new books on my Kindle, and I'm on my way. I'll still finish O, Juliet, but now I don't feel as though I'm wasting my time when it comes to the 5 year plan! Haha. Do y'all like to read? I'm a reading fanatic, but it has to interest me. I love romance novels, and fantasy mostly. I also like biographies, especially of celebrities I find interesting. I've read both Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's bios. They were hysterical! I highly recommend both.
Right now I'm reading an anthology with one of the stories a Sookie Stackhouse story. I also have another one with a Sookie story on it, that I will read next (I love the Sookie books, and have already read all of the full length books!). I also have Water For Elephants that was recommended to me by Lisa, and I'm really excited about. Definitely want to read that before I go see the movie.
So basically, if anyone has any books they want to recommend, I'm always taking suggestions! :) What is your favorite book?!
