Every year I like to compose a tentative reading list for myself. Being a college student means that reading for fun is something that is forgotten and replace instead with 35 pages about curiosity cabinets--which actually was pretty interesting and may or may not be inspiring an upcoming post! I make this list as kind of a list of goals. These are the books that I have to read before December 31, 2015.
The trouble is--and I will once again blame school and a hectic schedule--I have no idea what is out there anymore! I have a library card that is just dying to see the inside of Carnegie and several buses waiting to take me to Barnes and Noble. So what should I read? I have just a few in mind: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. by Sam Wasson, which I got for Christmas, makes the list. I also would like to get around to ordering and reading The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald as well as some of his short stories (if you have followed me for awhile, you know I'm a fan!) However, beyond those I am pretty much drawing a blank. That's where you lovely and worldly people come in...
What are some of your favorite books that I should crack open? What novels call for a weekend curled up in bed? Leave your suggestions below--I will also be reviewing what I do read in my Book Club posts as I finish them!
What should I read?!
