Trying to find some inspiration to get my life together. I‘m halfway through chapter one and I‘m already intrigued and amazed. Very extraordinary stuff! Happy reading, everyone!

Extremely excited for this read. I love Jed and all the writing he posts on his Instagram makes me melt into a pile of emotional sap. In a good way though.

My mind is still being blown over the fact that she managed to squeeze TKAMB out of this. Like, wow. I‘m truly amazed. A wonderful book considering the circumstances of what it is. I love Harper Lee.

The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath
Pickpick

This book weighed heavy on my heart. But brilliant prose and passages. Sylvia Plath is a beautiful writer. I especially liked the idea of being trapped in a bell jar- we have all been there, I know I have. Initially I found it hard to see why it‘s a classic, but I fully get it now. 💘

Anybody else get stressed and overwhelmed because you want to do so many things but don‘t have the time and because of that you feel like you‘re missing out on everything? I‘m struggling these days. Anyways, I‘m getting acquainted with Sylvia Plath.

Starting this today. I work at the Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles so this is a hot book at work and has been recommended to me three times. Plus they‘re making it into a movie. So here we go...

Sorry, but I‘m bailing on this one. When I read I like to actually enjoy it. When I get upset over what I read I like it to be fiction, not real life. This book is a bummer and I‘m not in the mood for it. Maybe when he‘s not our president anymore.

Chose To Kill A Mockingbird for my next read. This is my copy from the tenth grade so excuse the panda sticker. I don‘t remember liking this book a whole lot when I read it back then, but of course who likes to read when you‘re being forced to? I certainly didn‘t, but I was also an angsty teen soooo. 🤷🏽‍♀️

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline

‘Asshole,‘ she muttered, but she wasn‘t really mad. That was part of being a girl- you were resigned to whatever feedback you‘d get. If you got mad, you were crazy, and if you didn‘t react, you were a bitch. The only thing you could do was smile from the corner they‘d backed you into. Implicate yourself in the joke even if the joke was always on you.

I can‘t believe how many bad reviews I‘ve read for this book because I thought it was beautiful. How much I related to the passages is very telling to me of what kind of person I am and I never really felt that from a book before. Truly and deeply touched. Definitely being added to my list of favorite books. Damn. My heart is physically aching!!!! 😭

Where to even begin? I highly recommend this trilogy. Dystopian novels typically freak me out, which this one definitely did but this one seems like it could happen any day. Loved the environmental themes. Loved the characters. Zeb especially. Margaret Atwood is a genius. 🙌🏽

I pretty much never buy books brand new, but I made an exception for this one. Plus I had a B&N gift card. It‘s next on my #tbr pile. Very much looking forward to it!

The Year of the Flood | Margaret Atwood

Confronted by too much emptiness..., the brain invents. Loneliness creates company as thirst creates water. How many sailors have been wrecked in pursuit of islands that were merely a shimmering?

I have come to the conclusion that I deeply, deeply miss my books. Over the last few months I‘ve become rather extroverted due to life changes that have happened but I think I‘m ready to crawl back into my shell to continue reading my never ending TBR pile. Happy reading, ya‘ll.

My current read. I am on the slow train this year with my reading. It has been such a busy year, I simply have not made extra time to get in my reading. I‘m not sure if it‘s a good thing or bad thing that I somehow suddenly have a life.... lol. Anyways, halfway through with this one. Love it so far. Shout out to my coworker for letting me borrow it.

Utterly boring. Halfway through and just can't finish it. Every time I tried to read it I would get really distracted because it's just that uninteresting. Definitely has funny lines, but nah. Hard pass.

I never knew of Alexander Von Humboldt yet have planned to live in Humboldt county and attend Humboldt state! This book really sucked me in as it involves everything that interests me: Science, philosophy, art, nature, exploring, learning! History (but not a big fan of history hehe.) A fantastic, and even important read. Amazing what a single person can do for the World. Read it!
