The Kindle Quest Book List

Hey guys! I’m back! I know! How exciting is it that I’m here two days in a row? Maybe, just maybe, I’ll actually stick to this blog this time. I’m definitely feeling it more than I ever have before.  So who knows? Maybe I’ll actually stick to my word this time. I just got off work about two hours ago, Bates Motel is about to start, and I figured that now could be a good time to type up the books on my Kindle that I’ve never read (or read part of and then given up). So here they are:

So there it is. The list of books that I’ve either bought and never read, or that I’ve bought and only read part of. Now, keep in mind that there’s no way I can finish them all in a year. But I hope to finish 12 this year. There are 58 in all, so I don’t think 12 should be a problem. And back in December, when I first got the idea to do this, I had my best friend choose the first book for me to read from this list. She chose Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov. So that’s the one I plan on reading first. Tomorrow I’ll post more about it. My initial thoughts on the book and whatever. But for tonight… well, that’s it. That’s the list. I’m excited about this. Totally ready to start checking these books off the list. One-by-one.

Have a good night, ya’ll!
Much love,
~Aly
