Years ago I used to be a reader and now, quite honestly, I have lost my passion for it. Being stretched thin and exhausted in college might have had something to do with it. In the past 4 years reading has slowly become less enjoyable, I would tell myself that my brain only has so much space and now is the time to fill it psychology and music theory.
I want to find my passion again for reading, to get lost in pages, words, and stories written by someone other than myself; finding common ground with the thoughts of authors and the stories of their characters. Below is a list of books I have been wanting/trying to read.
(1) Anne Lamott has been one of my favorites for a few years, she is honest, witty, and sassy. She presents faith in such a refreshing and oh-so-human way (2) A book set in Seattle and written from the point of view of a dog, yes please.
(1) The Light Between Oceans has a lot of good vibes around it according to Amazon, I would like to read it and find out for myself (2) I already started reading this gem. Mike and I picked it up at a bookstore on San Juan Island the weekend we got engaged. Being from the land that Steinbeck wrote about, I connect deeply with his books.
(1) Shauna Niequist seems to put things into words that I have never been able to articulate, I've read Cold Tangerines and I am excited to read more of her. (2) I've never read Kerouac before but I have heard beautiful things about this book. I'm a sucker for books about traveling
