I used to read a lot years ago. When I read Harry Potter for the first time, I breezed through them in no more than two weeks. I banged out The Hunger Games once in just a night. I loved reading, I'd sit or lay down for hours reading. It was just nice to be quiet and relax while losing myself in another world. Because of many reasons I don't want to go into, I slowly stopped and now it's difficult for me to just take time out of my day and read. (Though I read A Storm of Swords pretty damn fast!)
I've started many books and never finished them, and now my list of "books to read" is getting ridiculously long. Today I logged onto my Goodreads account in lord knows how long, and cleaned some things out and added some...
I NEED TO READ MORE. So I want to make a goal for myself, to make more of an effort to read for the remainder of the year. My class schedule this fall semester will be keeping me busy, but I'll still have time to read. I mean, if I manage to have time to watch cartoons on Netflix I should have time to read, right? Right.
The majority of books that I want to read are in the fantasy genre: A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin, the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy by Tad Williams, The Death Gate Cycle series by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind...and books by Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, Jim Butcher...and more, I have to do some research.
Gotta tear myself away from Netflix and spend some of this summer reading.
