“Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend.”
I have never really enjoyed books that much until I got into my 20s. Perhaps it was because reading was required in school. It felt more like a punishment than a rewarding experience. Now I simply read for enjoyment. I feel lucky to have a job that lets me get a lot of reading done. It sort of makes me look forward to going to work, actually.
My reading preferences are all over the place. Fiction, nonfiction, biography, suspense, etc. I like it all, for the most part. I really enjoy fiction though. I love getting lost in a storyline. I have really high hopes for relationships solely based on fictional characters. My love life is destined to fail, basically.
Lately I have been following everything Emma Roberts has been reading. Her instagram is covered in books she is currently reading. I found myself in a book slump so I decided to read what she was reading. I have yet to be disappointed. Recently she and a friend created an online book club called Belletrist. The book in the picture is the current read of the month, South and West by Joan Didion. I finished this book the other day and it was not what I expected, but in a good way. It made me miss New Orleans. I would like to read more by Joan Didion in the future. I am so thrilled that I can be apart of this book club and I cannot wait to fall in love with more books.
