Early 2015 Reading List

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a restful weekend — I know I did! Before I get going with the books I want to read, here is a must-watch video. I have watched it numerous times and I cry every single time….so watch it….And Yes, I tend to watch more videos than I read. Not that I have a lot of time / energy / stamina these days, but there are SOOOO many books that I want to read! Just need to make it more of a priority (and find more hours in my day)…..here are the books that I want to devour in the coming weeks and months!


1. All the Light We Cannot See (Anthony Doerr)

  1. Thanks for the suggestions! I’ve been watching too much TV lately, have to get back into my reading groove..

  2. These all look so interesting – I don’t know where to start! Can’t wait to read these!!!

  3. I’ve watched that video several times too. Powerful, intense stuff. I wanted to hug every one of those boys so tight.
