book report // 11

i’ve been doing these monthly book reports since january and i’m really dorkily (that’s a word, right) excited to compile an end-of-the-year list of everything i read in 2015. i’ve never kept track of the books that i’ve read like this before and my inner nerd is a little too pleased with myself.

so, here is what i read in november:

the silver star by jeannette walls

a grief observed by c.s. lewis

a room of one’s own by virginia woolf

letters to a young poet by rainer maria rilke

i read a lot of classic authors this month. i had read most of letters to a young poet before, but couldn’t remember it very well. i picked it up at goodwill for a couple dollars and was happy to revisit it. i think i’ve read a room of one’s own before as well, but i could remember that one even less. i really enjoyed it this time, i feel like maybe i was a bit too young the first time i read it and it didn’t hit me in the same way as it did this go around. it’s a classic for a reason, and virginia woolf is remembered and appreciated still today because she really is a rare genius. if you haven’t read any of her work, i would recommend it.

we’re about a week into december and i’m one book in. not sure what’s next on my to-read list, and i’m not sure if i’m going to continue these book reports into 2016. we’ll see. i consider this space as kind of a memory keeping tool. it’s basically like keeping a journal in some ways – and i would love to write more here but haven’t found the motivation yet. maybe i’ll make it more of a priority in the new year. again, we’ll see. hah.

hope all is well in your worlds.
