To Be Read

One of my New Year's resolutions was to read two books a month. So far, I'm off to a good start - because so far this year I've read very short books and The Hunger Games trilogy. Easy peasy.
This is the pile of the other books that I'd like to read this year. The first Hunger Games book is also on the list, but it didn't make it to the pile yet because my grandma is borrowing it from me.

The list (in no particular order):

  • Walden, Henry David Thoreau 
  • The Problem of Pain, C.S. Lewis
  • Tex, S.E. Hinton
  • The Three Faces of Eve, Thigpen & Cleckley 
  • Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift
  • The Communist Manifesto, Marx & Engels
  • Crime and Punishment, Dostoevsky
  • Why We Can't Wait, Martin Luther King Jr. 
  • The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Agatha Christie
  • King Solomon's Mines, H. Rider Haggard
  • Media Sexploitation, Wilson Bryan Key
  • Catch 22, Joseph Heller
  • Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, R.L. Stevenson (can you believe I haven't read this yet?)
  • Confessions, St. Augustine, 
  • The Sword in the Stone, T.H. White 
  • The Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning
  • Ruthless Trust, Brennan Manning
  • The Hunger Games trilogy (again), Suzanne Collins
  • Harry Potter 5-7 (again), J.K. Rowling 
  • Shout, Philip Norman
  • Jayber Crow, Wendell Berry
  • Pornified, Pamela Paul
  • The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling
  • Little Women, Louisa May Alcott 
  • Age of Propaganda, Pratkanis & Aronson
  • The Last Days According to Jesus, R.C. Sproul
I will be honest and say, some of them I have already started and just mean to finally finish. For example, I definitely started Jayber Crow last summer. It's really good - I just haven't finished it. I do that a lot, hence the resolution. 

What books are you reading?

Crime and Punishment is good! But it totally requires some work to get through. Also before reading it if you can get ahold of a list that tells you the nicknames for all of the characters that will help a bunch! Goodlcuk! You have a good looking reading list. :)

is the Hunger Games really THAT good? haha! I keep hearing everyone talk about it, but I still haven't taken the time to read it. I'm so busy with school, but I should definitely try and read more, for fun!! xo

Hmmm... most of those that I have read are good. With the exception of Gulliver's Travels. One of the only books I quit reading because I really hated it. But a lot of people like it, so hopefully you will. =) At the moment I'm reading "Taking the Leap" by Pema Chodron and "Like a Hole in the Head" by Ivan Noble. Neither one are classics, but I'm liking both.
