Way back in July I started on Pride and Prejudice. It definitely wasn't one of those books that keeps you on the edge of your seat. What I enjoyed about it was escaping to another time period. It is a wonderful feeling imagining what your family status or love life would have been in you lived during that era. It was a good read, but I don't think it's high on my list to read again.
In September/October, I re-read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows...
This was, of course, in preparation for part 1 of the movie releasing later this month. If you want to know anything about me, it is that I have the worst long term memory ever. It is odd because I am pretty good with directions because I am observant (something about being a visual learner?). I figure I have to have some sort of vivid memory, sight, object, etc. to tie information to in order for it to be recalled fully at a later time. Anyhow, it has been a few years since I had read HP and I had completely forgotten what happened. I am now so ready for the movie!
When I first went to the library, I left my phone in the car and couldn't really remember which book from my 101 list I wanted to read next. I ended up picking up The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I finished it this weekend. I have to say I wasn't the biggest fan. I know it is supposed to be British humor. I just felt like there wasn't really a climax. I just basically wanted to get through the book. It obviously was very sci-fi which isn't my favorite genre either.
Now I am reading, Life of Pi, which I'm only a few pages into.
[So many cool book covers!]
I'm not completely sure how I feel about it yet, as it is supposed to be a book that will "make you believe in God." If it is filled with religious overtones then I'm not sure how into it I'll be. On the other hand, it has a lot to do with animals which I love! Guess you shouldn't judge a book by it's....um...author's note?
