day 2, or my autumn reading list
at 7:41 AM
Just a few books I'm itching to read this season. Fall reading is more of a "thing" for me than summer reading, not that I don't read in the summer, but certain books just seem particularly fallish. I also get all nostalgic about re-reading favorites. What's on your reading list?
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
I have never read this. Or seen the movie. I can't even tell you the basic plot. Also I have a degree in English. This is a problem.
Two-Part Invention - Madeleine L'Engle
This is part of L'Engle's Crosswicks Journal series, which I adore. I haven't read this one yet, but it has a tree with orange leaves on the cover, so I'm guessing it's appropriate.
A Million Little Ways - Emily Freeman
This is a re-read for me. I read it not too long ago, whenever it first came out, but as I was reading it I kept thinking that I needed to re-read it immediately. It's a must, even (especially) if you don't consider yourself an artist.
The Heretics Daughter - Kathleen Kent
My mom bought this for me one Christmas years and years ago and even though I was so excited to read it, I never got around to it for some reason or another. It's about the Salem Witch Trials - perfect for fall.
Anne of the Island - L.M. Montgomery
This is my favorite of the Anne books; the cover is all but totally torn off. It's just perfect for cozy, homebody nights.
The Robe - Lloyd Douglas
This is one of my favorite books of all time. If you haven't read it, you need to. It's a story about the Roman soldier who rolled dice for Jesus' robe and won and was never the same again. Ugh, I can't even tell you how much I ate this up the first time I read it.
