I’m going to be completely honest.
I haven’t read many books in my life so far.
It’s not because I don’t love reading, because I totally do love it!! It’s just so hard for me to pick what to read. I’m such a perfectionist in life, and I hate wasting time because there are so many things I want to do with it, so picking a book blindly out of the MILLIONS of books is an impossible feat.
How do you even decide what to read?
How do you know if you’ll like it?
As of now in my life, I’ve only read books when I knew a movie was being made, with the exceptions being the books I was assigned in school, the Harry Potter series and The Host. I figure that if there’s a movie, the book must be good! It hasn’t let me down yet!
So I’m going to list some books I’ve enjoyed reading, instead of the most impactful.
Harry Potter series
My Grandma got me my first Harry Potter book, and then every year I would get the new book for my birthday! This series made me love reading because of all the magical-ness!
This book was recommended to me by my best friend in high school because it’s one of her favorites! It starts out a little slow but only because you don’t really know whats happening, but then it’s SO GOOD!! I’ve read this book so many times, it’s my favorite book as of now. The movie is not good though…
The Hunger Games series
I started reading these books because my husband read them all and he loved them. I also experimented with reading the book AFTER seeing the movie. Usually I read the book before and then sometimes I’m disappointed with the movie! Well I really like the books and movies so maybe they just did really well lol
I also read this one because there were going to be movies. I liked reading this series a lot, but I started losing interest in the third book part of the way through…I had to start up again a couple times to get through it lol
