What I'm Reading

I really love reading and one of the things I'm so excited about this year is that I should (in theory) have more time to read since I won't have a lot of homework (if any). In high school, I was always reading fun books. I was "that girl" that always had a book or two in my backpack. I also love my Kindle and took it with me when I was traveling, and read all the time on trains and on my balcony. I didn't have Internet in my dorm room so I had to make my own kind of fun!

Here are the books I'm currently reading:

Where'd Ya Go, Bernadette? // I started this book on my flight back to Atlanta last week and I really like it so far! It's easy and interesting, the characters are quirky and I have a feeling that you don't really have them figured out until the end.

The Ramblers // I started this book a little over a week and a half ago. I think it's hard to get into at first (in a good way, it's just not as light of a read as WYGB) so I'm going to have to take some time to actually read it. At least the cover is beautiful for now!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child // My friend Hayley is letting me borrow her copy of HP and the Cursed Child and I can't wait to get into it!! It's going to be so interesting reading about the world of Harry Potter in script format, especially knowing that this will be the final installment of the series.

And next up on my list are...

All the Light We Cannot See // I've heard amazing things about this novel. I'm really a huge fan of historical fiction so I'm sure this will not disappoint! From reading a little about it, it sounds pretty similar to Sarah's Key, which made me laugh and cry and generally feel a lot of things.

Go Set a Watchman // To Kill A Mockingbird is probably my all-time favorite novel (Harry Potter books aside). I actually have this book downloaded on my Kindle and it's been there for over a year now. I've read bits and pieces of it but heard a lot of mixed reviews so I put it off for a while. I know I need to read it, I'm just hoping it doesn't take away the goodness of TKAM.

You Are a Badass // I've seen so many people reading this book recently that I need to give it a whirl! Plus I'm always down to hear more ways on how to live an awesome life.

What are you reading currently? You can follow me on Goodreads to see what I'm reading, want to read, and have already finished!


  1. I've read some of these. I've hear nothing but great things about You Are a Badass.


  2. Great picks! I've read WYGB, and it was really good. I can't wait to add some of the other ones to my list, especially You are a badass.

  3. I loved the book You Are a Badass, I need to read it again! Another favorite was All the Light we can not see, I listened to the audiobook for that. Now the Bernadette book, I have to say wasn't my favorite.

  4. I read You are a Badass recently and loved it! It really put me in a great mindset, and I have so many great parts sticky-noted for when I need a little pick-me-up. I'm also really intrigued with Go Set a Watchman but I don't want it to run TKM either! You'll have to share your thoughts about it when you finish it!

  5. I am on the library waitlist for You Are A BadAss!!

  6. I've heard good things about all of these! I loved the new HP :o)

  7. These books look great! Thanks for the recommendations! I wish I had more time to read. I usually find myself reading my daughter's books (to her) the most :) I need to carve out more time to read.

  8. I've only read you are a badass and loved it!! I'll have to add some of these to my list :)

  9. I've been dying to start a book for summer and I am failing at it! This list is great though so I will definitely have to check some of these out!

  10. absolutely DYING to read the harry potter book! keep us updated on how it is :)

  11. All the Light We Cannot See has been on my must-read list for SO long. I finally downloaded it on my Kindle and can't wait to read it!


  12. I LOVED All The Light You Cannot See, it is such an incredible book. I read the whole thing in like less than a week I loved it so much. I've been meaning to read Where'd You Go, Bernadette for a while but haven't gotten around to it yet.

  13. I loved Cursed child. Just keep in mind it's a screen play so the descriptiveness of the original books is not in this.

  14. I loved All the light that you cannot see but I'm definitely going to check out the other books that you recommended!


  15. I've heard great things about you are a badass too! I've heard it's similar to girl boss which was great!
