back at it again | my love for books

Let’s talk books! I’m back to the days where I’m glued to books, like when I was a teenager, reading Harry Potter in my room on summer vacay + hiding from the real world. (Well, sorta…except I have responsibilities + a job + adulting to do now).

Traveling on the train to + from Chicago, I have about an hour each way to do whatever I choose. I often get asked about my long commute, but truthfully I love it since it is at least two hours of uninterrupted me time a day (surrounded by dozens of strangers).

So since I haven’t had lots of time for my FAV hobby, memorykeeping, I’ve been filling it with reading. I used to read avidly when I was younger, then there was a period recently where I didn’t read a book for a year or two. But now I’m consistently reading again and I love it!

Here’s a look at what’s on my “currently reading” list:

  • Robin by Dave Itzkoff
  • Wish You Were Here by Stewart O’Nan
  • The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Club by Darien Gee
I love all kinds of books (with the exception of romance novels…ugh). I’ve been frequenting Good Reads a lot, where I share my currents, my ratings on books, and my want to reads. (Are you on Good Reads? Let’s be friends!).
I’ve been enjoying reading so much that I’m thinking I might create a mini album with my book reviews + what I’ve read. Of course, that’ll be on the back burner for a while, so in the meantime, I think I’ll share my reviews + opinions in this space, as a home, until I can move them into something more tangible.
Until then, back to reading!
xoxo

  1. I too use to be an avid reader. I have a stack of novels that I want to read that my brother has but I never seem to find the time. My goal this year is to read at least one book.It is better than 0, right. I am glad to see you blogging again.
