BOOKS LATELY

A favorite blogger of mine described books as "long-term companions," and I couldn't agree more with that sentiment.  One of the more troubling results of the burnout I experienced throughout my junior and senior years of high school was my apathy towards reading.  As someone who has always labeled herself a "book lover," this apathy was very disconcerting to me.

Since graduating from high school, I've gained the time--and the desire--necessary to delve back into books.  I even started a Goodreads account, which inspired me to write this post about books I'm currently enjoying and books that are on my "to-read" list.  If you have any specific book recommendations for me, make sure to leave me a comment or send me a message!

Without further ado, here are some of the books I've been reading over the summer:

Prep For A Day

The Picture of Dorian Gray
I always try to purchase at least one "classic" novel on my trips to the bookstore;  after all, certain works are considered as "classic" for a reason!  That being said, some of the novels published in previous centuries can be quite difficult to read and comprehend--some of them, but not this one.  Oscar Wilde's writing is delightfully easy to follow, and in this work he crafts a compelling story about one man's ultimate corruption.
