I've always wanted to be the person who constantly has a new book on the nightstand, ready to make the dive into a new adventure. That person just sounds so worldly. Instead, I am the person with the mentality of "If the book is worth reading, I will see the movie!". Exhibit A: Harry Potter and every other book-turned-movie thats come out in the last 10 years. The only exception in recent memory is The Hunger Games. I actually read those books and loved them. That's my reading claim to fame.
I'd like to be a bookworm, but like I said, that's just never been me. I blame being forced to read books against my will in high school and college. Higher education is the culprit. I've accepted this, but my husband apparently has not. The other night, he looked at me and said "Scrolling through Instagram and playing the bubble game on your phone is a waste of time.... you should read a book!". I tried to use my trump card in the productivity argument and told him this blog is my hobby, but he said cool bloggers blog about a hobby. The struggle.
So, I'm going to attempt to transform into a "scholar" of sorts. Apparently reading the Bible verse of the day on my phone does not count towards this goal, so I'm in search of some good old novels that I can really stick my nose into. That's where you come in, dear friends.
What are the titles you just couldn't put down? Like I said, I read the Hunger Games trilogy and have loved anything I have read by Emily Giffin. Aaaand that's the end of the short list that I can think of without including books I was forced to read against my will.
Let me know which books need to go on my list! Apparently I am looking to be more productive with my spare time. I still think watching TV counts (Who didn't learn a little about the justice system watching How To Get Away With Murder this year?), but I suppose adding a book here and there to my productivity repertoire wouldn't hurt.
Mom, if you're looking for a productive hobby, just throw the ball. It's not rocket science.
