I was a reading machine over winter break, and now that school has started I have slowed down quite a bit. I wanted to recap some of the books I read over break for you.
Looking For Alaska, by John Green
This book was filled with twists and turns, as I was reading I would think that I knew what was about to happen and then something else would happen. I always wanted to find out what was going to happen next, which made it a quick read. Its about love, life, and finding your place in the world.
The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway
This was a book that Aaron had picked for me to read. I really love reading older literature and I have loved some of Hemingway’s other works, so I was excited to read this. I absolutely love the detail that Hemingway writes with, it makes you feel like you are there while it all happens. This books takes you on a journey of confused love, it is fabulous.
Yoga Bitch, by Suzanne Morrison
If you want a book to make you laugh this will do it. I love memoir type books and this certainly falls under that category. It is all about a woman who travels to yoga teacher training in India and realizes it is not all zen and happiness. Her humor and wit makes you laugh (most) of the time. She discovers a lot about herself along the way, and you wonder the whole time is yoga for her?
The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman
I read this after being recommended it by numerous people (thanks Dad!). I actually have had it for a long time and just never got around to reading it. I wanted Aaron to read it, and he ended up reading it before me. After he read it, he really wanted me to, so I moved it to the top of the pile. I thought it was insightful and makes you think about things you should probably be thinking about already, but don’t. I can’t say I learned too much because I think deep down we know our ‘love’ language and our partners already. It made me more aware however of what I need and what Aaron needs. I would definitely suggest it if you are in a relationship.
Every Day, by David Levithan
I just finished this book yesterday, it took me just over a week to read. I loved it. I loved the mystery behind it. The book was about a person who switches bodies every day, they go to sleep and wake up as someone else in the morning, but what happens when they want it to stop? When they fall in love and don’t want to leave? It kept me coming back for more, I wanted to find out how it would end. SO GOOD.
