Currently Craving: Books
I have a list on my phone of books I want to read that seems to grow at an exponential rate - I don't even know if it's possible for me to read all of them! I'm kind of a dork and always have a book with me - like literally in my purse.
I try to mix in the genres of the books I read because after one too many chick-lits I am ready for something somewhat more serious, hence why there is an assortment of genres on this list.
It by Alexa Chung and Grace: A Memoir are two books that needed to get on my bookshelf yesterday and not just because they will add some flair but because they are about and written by icons in the fashion industry!
Don't judge me by my two young adult novels I included, Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars - they are seriously popular and apparently quite the addictive reads. Rumor has it that Divergent is new Hunger Games and who couldn't use another Katniss and Peeta love story!?!?
I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover but can you judge it by its name??? I immediately googled The Astor Orphan and The Night Circus when I saw them at the library and they sound just as fabulous as their names suggest. On a related note I was almost scared off by the name Burial Rites (I don't do scary...literally wouldn't sleep for a week) but the summary actually looks quite good and not scary at all!
Of course I had to have the requisite chick-lit in there and what better one to have in my queue than Revenge Wears Prada, if it's half as good as the first I know I will be obsessed. Plus, I can pretend I'm sitting on a beach reading this instead of freezing in multiple layers!
Those are the must reads on my list, I hope they all turn out to be as good as they sound! Do you have any books you are dying to read right now??
