The 4 Books I Can Re-read Until My Next Lifetime


** Spoiler alert: I think that there is a high possibility that I am going to be a faerie in my next life. This possibility is brought to you by my recent book hangover from “The Cruel Prince.”

There are times in my life when I have champagne taste with beer pockets. Read: Broke. Too broke to even buy a book. HAHA.


Short of pulling off the greatest bookstore heist in the history of mankind, I resort to re-reading books that are already in my collection. That way, I don’t spend any money to indulge myself in reading (which I am wildly in love with and I’m pretty sure reading is in love with me too, because I am such a delight).

Maybe eat a meal, take a nap, do some squats, shower our dog with affection by throwing my arms around her neck and fuss over her until she squirms and finally break free. Then I come back to the book, open it, and wonder where I last left off. HAHA.

Six Books I am Currently Reading and Oh Wow I Bet They are Ready to Murder Me


Amidst all the naps taken, meals eaten, and more taps taken I have managed to create a circus inside my head by juggling six books to read. I didn’t even realize it. That’s how serious my memory failure is. I pluck one book off the (sometimes virtual) bookshelf and think, “Oh great! This looks great! I’m going to read this.” And I read it with the enthusiasm of a child learning how to bike for the first time: Bound to crash straight into someone else’s front lawn.
