Anna Karenina was a book that I was really looking forward to reading, but I knew it was going to be a challenge for me to get through. I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. I really enjoyed how Tolstoy wrote the thoughts and feelings of his many different characters. I understood why they were making the decisions they were making even when I didn’t agree with them. (I probably wouldn’t have picked this book to read if Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls didn’t mention it in her graduation speech.) I’ve never considered myself a reader. Actually, no one consider me a reader. I read the Harry Potter series but, that was it. So, I decided it was time to read some books. I’ve compiled a list of books from different lists online. I’m excited about some of them. There are a couple that I don’t think I will enjoy but I feel like I should read them. Here is my list! I would love to hear your thoughts on the ones I’ve read!
Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy
Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carol
The Hobbit – JRR Tolkien
On The Road – Jack Kerouac
Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret – Judy Blume
Chronicles of Narnia – CS Lewis
Bleak House – Charles Dickens
Chocolat – Joanne Harris
The two crossed out are the two that I finished! I started The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe last night!
