magic monday

I'm back on a reading kick, and I wanna ride this wave for as long as I can. I've read three books in the last two weeks. My goal of reading 10 books for the whole year (#3 on my 23 to do list) will be knocked out in no time if I keep this up. 

Perfect by Ellen Hopkins is my current read. When I was in high school, I read all of her books one right after the other and then fell off with her as an author. When I saw Perfect at Good Will a few weeks ago on clearance (aka for 79 CENTS!) I knew I had to get it, and that I absolutely wouldn't regret it. So far, 250 pages in, it has not been a let down. 

I'm really glad I'm reading again. I feel like it helps me sleep better at night, when I sit on the couch with Justin and read before heading to bed instead of playing on my phone. I feel more calm & relaxed & enthralled to be inside the heads of these characters instead of my own. I will always be grateful to books for giving me an escape from reality.
