Books I’ve Bought Recently (A Very Unnecessary but Necessary Haul)

I am a firm believer that reading books and collecting books are two entirely different hobbies. Unfortunately, as of recently I’ve been more on the ‘collecting’ end of the spectrum which ultimately means that my ‘to be read’ list is getting disgustingly long (someone send help). 

But nonetheless, here are some books I’ve bought recently (and why I bought them). Full disclosure, I am hoping that by writing about them the switch in my brain clicks and that I’ll actually start reading. 

But I digress, here are the titles.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Aside from the synopsis of the book truly intriguing me, I also want to read this book because it’s one of the ‘well-known’ books on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Another book from the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge! But this one just sounds SO fun and I’m very excited to start it (it’s also a goal of mine to read more classics).

Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel

I have actually already read this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I picked it up at a local bookstore (there were too many people ahead of me at the library) because I needed to read it for a book club. 

The story was so captivating, and I am very happy I read it – especially considering it’s something I don’t think I would have picked up without the book club.

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Recently I’ve realized there are a ton of stories that I grew up knowing but have actually never read (but want to). Dracula falls into this category … also, it’s spooky season. Need I say more?

So there you have it, the four books I’ve bought recently. If anyone sees me in a bookstore anytime within the next five months, I invite you to remind me about the first paragraph in this blog post.

Until then.
