Bucket List Item: Read 50 new books

Bucket List ChallengeBefore I had kids, I loved to read. I would spend many summer days laying in my back yard reading. I could read an entire book in a day. That was before I had kids. I still read once in a while but responsibility seems to creep its way into my reality and I put the book down. Let’s just say when I pick up a book, nothing else gets done around the house (sorry honey!). Then there was my CIP designation I was working on. There’s a great temptation to escape into a world of non-fiction verses the reality of insurance.

My challenge will be finding a happy medium. Instead of watching TV before going to bed, I’ll try read for an hour before falling asleep (and hopefully I don’t stay up all night because I can’t put the book down). Is anyone else like this? Or just me?

So my bucket list item for 2015 is to read 50 new books – books I’ve never read before. I tend to have my favourite books I’ve read in the past I will go back to and re-read. I absolutely love David Edding’s series The Belgariad and The Malloreon. Each series is 5 books and after putting the 10th book down (because you can’t just read the first series), you feel lost and lonely. I long to feel that involvement in a book again.

I may swing this a bit but I do have a few books in mind for my list but if you have any suggestions, please share below!!

Here’s my list so far:

  1. The Fellowship Of The Ring– J.R.R. Tolkien
  2. Lord Of Ring #2 Two Towers– J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. Lord Of The Rings 3 Return Of The King– J.R.R. Tolkien
  4. The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner, Book 1)– Dashner
  5. The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, Book Two)– Dashner
  6. The Death Cure (Maze Runner, Book Three)– Dashner
  7. The Kill Order (Maze Runner, Prequel)– Dashner
  8. Kathy Reichs
  9. The Dream Manager– Matthew Kelly – DONE
  10. Frankenstein– Mary Shelley
  11. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland– Lewis Carroll
  12. Where the Stream and Creek Collide – Sarah Lashbrook
  13. Unlucky 13 – James Patterson – DONE
