Hellooooo everyone! I hope you had a fabulous week and are looking forward to this upcoming week before a nice Thanksgiving Break! Recently, I’ve been finding myself pulling more books off the shelves than usual. Unfortunately, I’m pulling too many books off the shelves… 😳 As the holiday season closes in, and I get a real break (not one which I ignore the science homework burning on my desk), I put together a little list of books that I hope to read soon.
Number 1 on My List!!
The Bible! I really need to start studying God’s Word more. Every single year, I make it a New Year’s resolution to read it the following year, but always “forget” it and put it off till tomorrow (though that never happens… 🙄 ) This upcoming year, I am going to read it and you guys can keep me accountable! Feel free to comment in any of my posts asking how it’s going 😀 ❤
Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina by Misty Copeland ~ I love reading biographies about people whose stories are soooo amazing. I read Michaela DePrince’s Taking Flight, and really enjoyed reading about her life story, from unloved orphan to the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s principal dancer! Misty Copeland has a similar(ish) story, and I can’t wait to read all about it!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne ~ This one is not on the tippity top of my reading list, but after finally finishing the Harry Potter series, I think it’ll be fun to read a little bit of how Jack Thorne comes up with a little “ending” for the series 🙂
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie ~ I’m not usually one for murder books, but since the movie is coming out super soon and my family is planning to watch it during my sister’s Thanksgiving Break (plus I hear from my sisters that this books is A-MAY-ZEEENG), I’m planning on reading it before I watch the movie. Because, I have found proof for this, by the way, the books are almost (almost, almost, almost) always better than the movies that are based on them. 😀 😀 😀
Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery ~ My family and I are huuuuuuge fans of the Anne of Green Gables series!! I recommend them for everyone! They’re really good literature, too – bonus!! Although, I was only allowed to read the first two for a little while and am finally allowed to continue! ❤
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen ~ I once tried to get started on Pride and Prejudice, but stopped for some reason…It’s a big read, and maybe I’ll begin again when I’m older, but it’s on my reading list!
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare ~ This is a book that’s set in the colonial times and is connected to the Salem Witch Trials. Historical Fiction. My sister bugs me from time to time to read it, but somehow it’s been kept in the car for forever…somehow…somehow…
Heidi by Johanna Spyri ~ I have only read the abridged version and I am thumping myself on the head for it!! (be right back, let me thump myself on the head) I need to read the real version!
So there’s my Holiday Reading List! I’m obviously not going to read allllllllllllllllllllllll of these books over the holidays, but it’s a list that I’ll probably keep coming back to to see my progress!
Comment down below if you’ve read any of these books and tell me what you think of them! Also, feel free to give me any reading suggestions! I’m a bookworm!!!!! Please keep me accountable with my Bible reading plan! ❤
Till Next Time ~
