Books Lately

One of my resolutions for the new year was to read as often as I could.  To my pleasant surprise, I've been keeping to that resolution pretty well.  I used to be an avid book reader in middle school, but when I got to high school my free time gradually dwindled away;  sadly, books were put on the back burner.
I've really missed being able to read, and I decided that I could make time for books. My major motivating factor is a parcel of books that's coming my way--what's better than a new stack of reading material, after all?
Prep For A Day

How to be Lovely:  The Audrey Hepburn Guide to Life:  You know I couldn't resist an Audrey Hepburn novel.  This little book is full of Audrey quotes and facts that reveal new meanings about ways to live life the way she did:  happily.

The Screwtape Letters:  I am beyond excited to read this C.S. Lewis masterpiece.  The novel is a collection of letters written by the wily demon Screwtape to another young demon;  his writings are instructive memoirs on the best ways to lead humans astray.  It looks like the perfect mix of satire and hidden wisdom, all in one book.

Unbroken:  After reading excerpts from this book in one of my history classes, I've always longed to finish the entire story.  I've heard wonderful things about the novel and its portrayal of one of the most amazing testaments to man's resilience and determination.

The Great Gatsby:  F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my favorite writers, so I thought it was about time that I read his most famous work.  Plus, I might as well get ahead on this summer's reading assignment!

All the Light We Cannot See:  Carly from College Prep has given such strong reviews about this book (and it received the Pulitzer Prize), so I'm eagerly anticipating reading it. It's another World War II story that's sure to be remembered.

So, if you were wondering what I'll be doing in my spare time, you have your answer!

What's on your reading list?

Love,
