I’m excited to start participating in Judy’s weekly reading link up!
I like to read a wide variety of books from classics, Young Adult novels, memoirs, chicklit; you name it, I’ve probably read it! I keep track of my reading progress on GoodReads. It’s a great site for readers.
So let’s take a look at what’s on my currently reading shelf…
Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. This YA book is the third in the Caster Chronicles series. I read the others before the third one came out and started this one right when it came out; however, I’m having a hard time remembering what happened in the other books so I’m a little lost reading it! I need to do a refresher on the plot points of the first two books then pick this one up again.
Break, Blow, Burn by Camille Paglia. One of my professors in college recommended this book and I started reading it a while ago. It analyzes poems in the Western Canon. I love this book because it reminds me of being in school (I’m one of those freaks that loved school!) but it takes a lot of concentration and usually I don’t have enough to tackle this book.
The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck. Honestly, I thought I finished this one!! It’s about people taking all kinds of paths towards finding their life’s passion and working at it. I’ll have to double check whether I finished it or not. I definitely recommend it.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. This is the newest addition to my list. This book falls under what I call my shame category: books that I probably should have read at some point in my academic career, but never did either because it was never assigned, or it was assigned but I didn’t have time to read it. You’ve, no doubt, heard of this book. It’s disturbing to be sure and I can only read it when I’m in the mood. I suspect this book will be on my currently reading shelf for a while.
I’m linking up overt at Patchwork Times. Head over to see what others are reading!
