I swear each month, each year, and every season I make a promise to myself to read more. I'm not sure where this guilt comes from, maybe I feel the urge to read after watching 5 episodes of Desperate Housewives with no break at all. None the less, I constantly have a running list of books that I want to read that aren't for class. To put it out in the universe, I decided to share with you my Spring reading list of hopes of maybe getting a chance to read some of them.
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
In my English class this semester we read Amy Tan's piece "Mother Tongue," and I was so fascinated and intrigued by her story. In this piece she mentioned her book, The Joy Luck Club, and ever since then I've wanted to read the book! I love Tan's writing style and I love what this books means to her, her mother, and her family.
The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow
This book is actually going to be made into a movie, and the plot seems so amazing that I want to get the chance to read it before the movie comes out. But I promise I won't be "I ReAd ThE BoOK FiRSt" kind of person. It sounds like this book is going to be a mystery/creepy kind of book that also deals with racial issues and identity. I'm very optimistic.
Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly
This book is one of those creepy, suspenseful, mystery books that my mom and I both share a love for. I recently saw another book blogger raving about it, and now I must read it!
this is how i knew by Kiana Azizian
I would love to be one of those Instagram girls who read poetry, eat strawberries for breakfast, and do yoga. Since I'm not one of those girls, the least I could do is try and read poetry. This collection of poetry is my hand at being that girl.
If all else fails, there's always next month, right?
