As many of you probably do as well, I’m always looking for new books to read. I’m constantly putting more and more books on my Amazon wishlist and I hope that one day, I will have read them all, although that will be a tough task. And not to mention all the unread books I still have on my shelves. But I think that one can never have enough books and I’m not satisfied with the 700 and more I already have.
I thought I would put together a list of books that I’ve read and loved for people who are looking for new things to read. My list includes a variety of genres and that’s just what I like to read – a little bit of everything. I came across a lot of these during my time at university and I’m so glad that my field of study required reading lots and lots of interesting books. I read stories I probably wouldn’t have read if it hadn’t been a class requirement and this showed me that I should not be too focussed on a specific genre or on what I think I like to read. I’ve hardly ever read a book I found terrible and there are so many more good ones waiting for me.
If a title sounds interesting, just go for it and don’t think about it, too much. And please leave me a comment with some of your absolute favorites. I’m always looking for reading inspiration and I would love to put together more of these lists. And just thinking about it reminds me that I should get back to reading more instead of watching Netflix, all the time.

I totally know how you feel. My own whish list keeps growing and growing by the day. I have just started my freshmen year in college, and I’m finally studying what I love; literature. It’s amazing, with my great love for books, that I actually have to read amazing work for the lectures, and it’s so much fun. I really love your recommendations by the way, since I have read some of them already, I will certainly keep the other ones in mind to read in the future.
I’m sure you will absolutely love all the different things you’ll be reading. It was one of my favorite things about being at uni. With all the books I’ve collected from those years, I can fill a lot of space. You just get introduced to so much good material and I’m sure you will have a blast reading all of it.
I really hope that one day, I will have read through my list but I would probably have to read a book per day to actually make it. And I watch too many TV shows for that. Haha.
I wish you all the best for your time at college. And let me know if you end up reading something from my list. :)

I really enjoyed Shonda’s book this year! I still have yet to read Gone Girl and Wild but it’s on my list! This is a good list you have there! I really have to get better with reading more books instead of binge watching on Netlflix!
I totally loved her book, as well. It’s very helpful to read how other people lerned to be positive about everything in life. You should definitely read Gone Girl and Wild. I think the hype was totally earned. I enjoyed both of them so much. :)
I’m glad I’m not alone with my Netflix and general TV show addiction. I think currently, I’m watching like 12 shows. I haven’t read in a while and feel bad about it but when I watch shows, I can also do other things like blogging while watching. But I definitely have some books lined up and should go back to reading. It’s the perfect season for it.

I loved Gone Girl so much! I did things in reverse and watched the movie before reading the book but the book was definitely better. There are quite a few books on your list I’m interested in. Thanks for sharing! (:

I think it was fabulous. The movie as well and I did it like you did. Movie first then the book. It’s definitely the best way to go. When I like a movie and find out there is a book, I’m always sooo happy cause the book is usually even better. :) I’m glad you amy have found some new reading material. Let me know if you end up reading one. I would love to hear what you think. xx
