Hey everyone!

I participated in the 52 book challenge on Tumblr, but I haven't been updating on what I've read this year as constantly as I should be. The challenge is to read 52 books, comics, zines, and whatever you can get your hands on. It doesn't matter how short or long it is, if you read it, it counts. I decided to focus on books and comics. I know for a fact that I've read almost 52 books and comics. I'll have to count them to get a better estimation, but it was a struggle to keep reading sometimes.

This month and next year, I'll be focusing on reading mostly books. I complied a list of books that are already on my bookshelf. I want to finish the books I have on my shelf since I do have a series and stand-alones that I still need to read.

1. Battle Royale // I've been wanting to read this book after watching the movie. It originated as a manga, but I want to immerse myself into a single book then several. 

2. The World of Pooh // I have two editions of this book. One claims to be a complete collection, while the other has a pretty book jacket. I'm sure that they both contain the same content, but I like to have different versions of the same book. They're just so cute. 

3. Sevens Series // I saw this series a few years ago at my local Half Price Books. I have all the books in the series, but I just can't get myself to read it yet. I've read about twenty or so pages once and was promptly horrified. I didn't think a Young Adult book would talk about adultery with a minor so frankly, so I was surprised and had to put the first book down. I want to read the rest of the series, but adultery with a minor is a major no for me.

4. bird by bird // One of the famous writing books someone can read. I've read a few pages of it once. I loved the writing, however my minds tended to stray whenever I read it. I'm going to have to sit down and finish this it one sitting. 

5. Writing Down the Bones // Another famous book about writing. I like the way this is structured like a miniature classroom. It gives it a bit of life. I love how the author doesn't mince words and the exercises are easy to follow. 

6. The Book Thief // This book is amazing. I only read about one chapter in the book, but I was hooked. I'm attempting to read this before I watch the movie.

It's a short list, but for me, it's a reasonable endeavor. I'm a college student, so having time to read can be few and far between.

What books do you want to read?

Thanks for reading!
