Ahh, this topic is so good. Cause I always find myself buying a lot of books, but never read them. Or more importantly, finishing them. I own a lot of books that are book marked and dog eared around the third chapter. And I never get around to finishing them. I know, its sad.
So here is my sad list of barely started books and one CD, just for fun!
1. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
My best friend and I wanted to start reading books together so we got on Pinterest and searched books about friendship and we found a list and this was on it. We both found it intriguing and got our own copies. That was December. I think she's started but I am only on chapter 3. It's not that I don't want to read or I don't like it. I just can't find the time, or want to sacrifice my naps.
2. The Fault in Our Stars Soundtrack
Technically, I've opened it and listened to it once. But to be honest, I don't really like it. I only liked two songs and I already had those. It's too slow and sad for me I guess. Not really a soundtrack to jam out in the car to.
3. Love Does by Bob Goff
This is a book that my dad loves and he bought me a copy, but I just have not gotten into it. I think I read the first chapter, but that was probably in September and I haven't touched it since. Maybe during spring break? But let's be real, that's not going to happen.
4. I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
I am actually half way through it, but it has taken me over a year to get that far. It's not bad, but it's a little difficult to fully understand all of the cultural phrases and references that she has written. It just makes me have to really break down each chapter. Right now, the book isn't even with me. It's in Fredericksburg, so that doesn't help. But so far it's really good and is really an eye opening text.
5. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
I've picked up this book multiple times, with the intent to get past chapter four. So far, I've only made it to chapter three, numerous times. I don't know if I don't like it, or just always get stuck in that chapter. Some say skip it, but the trouble is, I don't remember what parts I remember are from the movie or the book. It's a real struggle, y'all. But one day, I will get past this!
So there's my very sad list of unfinished books and my unused CD. I hope you all have more luck in reading than I do.
