I have another confession to make...One of the reasons why I had to put myself on a budget this year is because I spent too much money downloading books onto my Nook. Seriously, when there is a good Victorian romance...umm erotic...I guess smutty book I can't resist. A lot of them are like $2.99 or $3.99 so I just cannot help myself from clicking "Confirm" purchase. I do throw in the occasional "Everyone is reading it" book like Eat Pray Love & The Help, which I loved both, but then suffered through Water for Elephants which AHHHHH!!!! couldn't even get through the movie. I'm an avid reader and I just love the promise of a new book.
My list up there is a combo of books everyone is reading, some books I read in high school that I want to re-read, future book club book, and then I had to still throw in some romance/smut (Illicit & Entwined With You) too. The blog, Harley & Jane, listed Cinderella Ate your Daughter as their book club book and I think I'm going to read that one first. It's an analysis of what the girlie girl culture is doing to young girls. I'm not a girlie girl even though I watched EVERY Disney movie when I was younger...I wonder how come? It should be interesting nonetheless. Also, I'm excited to re-read Wuthering Heights & The Great Gatsby. I wonder how different the experience will be when I don't have to butcher it by writing a paper and dwell on every key quote. I can just enjoy it or not & forget about getting a good grade!The Night Circus, The Paris Wife, & Gone Girl I've heard good and bad about each so I'm excited to see what my take on it will be.
Have you Read any of the Above Books?
Are there any other titles that I just HAVE to read? =)
I'd love to hear!
