*Unread*

Day 1 of the Daily Post’s Writing 101.

I like reading. Every year at some point I take up the resolution to read more. This summer, after graduation, I decided to read up all the books I have in my “Unread” list.

The books are:

  1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I have had this book since so long, but the size has always intimidated me. Status so far? Not even reached page 100.
  2. The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. A non-fiction I bought recently after reading about it on a blog I follow. I began reading it but haven’t completed it yet because I ended up getting distracted by the other books I bought while reading this one. What I liked so far about the book is that it doesn’t make you feel like you are reading a self help book. You feel like you are reading a book on research on habits and how they are built. Love the book, but it can be a bit of a heavy read for someone who’s only read fiction.
  3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I bought during Christmas after asking everyone about what they thought about the movie. Yes, I judged the book by its movie and bought it. The book, very much like the movie, in confusing at first, and that made me give up on the book. But I have plans to start it up again, once after I am done with reading the above books.
  4. The Revenant by Michael Punke.
  5. Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
  6. Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus by John Gray.
  7. The Fault in our Stars by John Green.
  8. Improve your Communication Skills by Alan Barker. 
  9. Develop your Leadership Skills by John Adair. 

I know, I know, I have 3 books left halfway through, 7 untouched, but I can’t help it! I love buying books, even when I know I have a pile waiting for me.

Whoops, my copy of Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan has just arrived. I think I’ll read that now. 😉
