I am a huge reader. I have always been reading ever since I was young. Since winter break has started, I have been reading more because I have the time too! Here are the five books on my reading list that I hope I can read before the break is over
1. The Magician’s Nephew and the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis
I had the boxed set of all 7 books when my dad first bought it for me over 10 years ago! I have always wanted to read these books and I actually started the Magician’s Nephew before I went back to school. I kind of forget I even started reading the series but once I came home for break I realized I had to read these books.
2. It by Stephen King
I picked this up at my school’s library because I felt like I had nothing to read. I have always wanted to read this book because I am a fan of Stephen King’s novels. The length of this book is going to be the main reason why I won’t be able to finish it over break, but I will definitely make sure that I finish it by next year for sure.
3. Misery by Stephen King
This is my last Stephen King book on this list I promise! My mom told me she had this book and she gave it to me to read it. I have always watched the movie with Kathy Bates and she is so scary. If I don’t get a chance to finish it over break, I will bring it back with me to school and read it. Stephen King really knows his horror genre.
4. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien
I have always wanted to read Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books. I tried last summer and it was hard for me to get past all of The Hobbit histories in the beginning so I stopped. I became a Lord of the Rings fan recently as the first time I watched the film was in the summer of 2012. I loved the movies and the story and the characters and that really has inspired me to go back and read these books at least once. I finished The Hobbit this semester and I can’t wait for the movie.
5. Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
I watched this film in my Human Nature, Politics, and Violence class my freshman year of college. This film was violent. It turned me off at first. However, at the convention I usually go to, their theme this year is Dystopian Novels. Of course, I want to read all the dystopian novels I can get my hands on to prepare. This novel is a dystopian novel so I definitely want to read it. I don’t currently own this book but I will probably rent it from the library because I don’t really have an interest in owning a book.
So what’s on your reading list? I know I am going to have to get busy reading if I am going to finish or start some of these books. I can’t wait!
