Along with my recent move to a new home, came a much shorter commute to work. While I appreciate not having to be up at 5am every day, I will admit that I kind of miss having an hour to and from work devoted to reading. I’m a book worm, what can I say?
I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in the day to day (and television) so reading can often slip right out of people’s lives. I do not want that to happen to me just because my designated reading time has been shortened; therefore, I have recently made a promise to myself that I will continue to read 1-2 books a month. In doing this, I figured I would also share some of those reads with you all on the blog; a semi-book club if you will.
This month I took on Looking for Alaska by John Green. While more famously known for writing The Fault In Our Stars, John Green did an impressive job on this book. Sure, it’s another ‘young read’ with a cast of high school students wrapped up by love, but there’s definitely some depth to the story. I was a fan of lead character, Miles Halter, and specifically was intrigued by his fascination with people’s last words. It may be a quick read for those avid readers like myself, but it is definitely worth checking out.
