I love to read, but I tend to read the same things over and over:
a.) Food memoirs
(other people's business plus recipes? Two of my favorite things!)
b.) Books by my tried and true authors (like Dave Eggers or Elizabeth Berg)
c.) Novels that are getting lots of hype
(the best ones seem to be by first-time novelists)
d.) Cooking/health/parenting books
e.) Books about to be made into movies
(I will read pretty much any book so that I can justify overly criticizing the movie)
Books I don't usually go for:
Philosophical, non-fiction, murder mysteries, Jane Austen and similar classics, books with disturbing subject matter (obviously), and biographies
In an attempt to branch out,
I am taking Modern Mrs. Darcy's Reading Challenge
I can think of a few books already.
Book I should have read in high school? Frankenstein or Scarlet Letter
Book my Mom loves? Walden
Book everyone has read but me? Outlander or Unbroken
Take this challenge with me...or maybe recommend some books that would work?
The fun begins!
