I was excited to read that the 7th day of the 30 Day Minimalism Challenge is dedicated to streamlining your reading list. I love reading, and I’m so excited that I’ve had more free time to read for pleasure since I graduated college. Reading more is actually one of my goals for this year. I have a few books on my mind that I wanted to try and read, so looks like now is the perfect time to make an official list!
My Current Reading List
The Wife by Meg Wolitzer – After I graduated and finished reading The E-Ticket Life, I was lost on what I should read next. I tweeted out to my friends asking if they had any book recommendations, and my friend responded with one of her favorites: The Wife. I had no idea what it was about but I wanted to trust her judgement. I’m glad I did. I’m around halfway through with finishing and it’s definitely a different style and kind of story than what I’m used to reading. The Wife analyzes and explores the evolution of marriage and the dynamic between men and women during the 1950’s through the eyes of Joan, a doting wife of famous author Joseph Castleman. I’ll go into more detail about
opinion of the book in a review once I’m finished reading!
Carmella and Juliana Earn Their Ears by Carmella and Juliana Cavallo – I started reading this and then took a hiatus during finals season. I love reading about other authors’ experiences during the Disney College Program in the Earning Your Ears series! (I could be biased since I wrote the third book LOL.) I like how this book is unique due to the fact that each chapter switches between the twins’ different experiences and points of view. I don’t think I’ll be writing a review on this book since I feel weird reviewing books in a series I wrote for, but I can tell you if you’re a Disney fan and want some information about working in the Disney College Program in Walt Disney World, this book is quite a delight!
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin – I’ve been eyeing this book on the shelves for a while now, but never had the time or I was already reading a different book. Finally the other week when I was in Target I bit the bullet and just bought it for when I finished the other two books. I love books during this time period, or any stories dealing with upper class society in the 1800s and earlier. The summary on the back of the book describes that the main character, Cora, is a beautiful rich girl in American society. Her mother whisks her off to England to earn something America doesn’t have to offer: a title. I’m very excited to start reading!
