One fact about me is that I love to read. Reading is one of the things I can not give up. Not most people like to read and that is a position that I fully understand. I mean, if you were here that must mean that you obviously like to read. Or maybe tolerate it. Im not trying to write a novel to you, but only to get my words out.
Back to books. Again I love to read. It helps me forget about the day and distress, same as writing my day away. I get to learn new things, hear from peoples perspectives, go to new places, or be inspired. I believe the last time I read a full book was maybe about a month ago, however it does not count as a novel since it was a poetry book. Speaking of poetry, I have been toying with the idea of expanding my knowledge of poetry writing and structure and in deep need to find new poetry books. The class I am taking has so far been using a lot of poetry context and exercise and has helped me write again by analyzing.
Here are some of the books I have been enjoying or enjoyed, some I have not finished yet. (A bad habit of mine)
*none are in any particular order*
- Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
A very very popular book, you can see a bunch of twitter posts of some of these pages. It is a very short read, which can be done it about one sitting. A collection and journey of Kaur’s prose and poetry about suffering, love, and healing. Very beautiful small book for a short read but powerful quotes and outlooks.
2.The Universe of Us by Lang Leav
Another book of poetry about break up and love. I have not finished this books since i want to enjoy it and take my time with it. I like the use of her metaphors and personal experience. This book is crafted very well, there are three other books prior to this one, which are prose and poetry with some pretty and delicate illustrations.
3. Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
This is book is written by one of my most favorite authors. This books is very complicated to explain but is somewhat romantic, suspenseful, paranormal, haunting story. It is a story about a man named K who is in love with his best friend Sumire. However her character and actions lead her and K into an unexplainable experience. Sumire ends up disappearing from an island. K is stuck on finding her and finds himself with questions with no answers. I highly recommend this book, it is very weird and the ending is incredible. Definately read his other works.
A new book I am reading. The room is about a boy named Jack whose only world is the one inside a 11×11 foot room. Taking through his perspective, Room is a story of love between a mother and son who are trapped from the world. I saw the movie beforehand, with Brie Larson. I’m excited to see how the movie conveyed the novel version. It is a very sad and suspenseful story and I can’t wait to continue reading.
Well thats all I have left to say about that. 🙂
