Some Book Lovin’

After being home for almost two weeks, I finally started unpacking today. I put on some records, and actually had a great time sorting my books!

First I found them all scattered about in the attic and other miscellaneous boxes from millions of moves.


Then I sorted them into nice piles.


And put them on my shelf! I sorted them into fiction and non-fiction, and then alphabetized them.(You can tell I’m a nerd by how excited I am about this)


Since I’ve been kind of obsessed with books my entire life, here are some unsolicited readings tips. I have the reading tastes of a 12-year-old, but it’s way more fun that way!

Absolute Favorite Authors: Rick Riordan & Ally Carter. Read any of their books, and I guarantee you will have a marvelous experience. Start with Heist Society and The Lightning Thief.

Newest Favorite Book: I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President by Josh Lieb (one of the writers of The Daily Show). It’s just brilliantly hilarious. Read it now. I picked it up at random and it was one of the best things to happen to me all summer.

honorable mention: I also just read Dust City by Robert Paul Weston, and it was a really cool, gritty, action, futuristic Grimm’s fairy tale mystery detective procedural. Totally worth checking out. Bonus? A pretty cover design.

What I’m currently reading: Wildwood by Colin Meloy (fun fact: he’s the lead singer in The Decemberists), and illustrated by Carson Ellis. So far it’s like The Chronicles of Narnia, but set in Portland. Very happy.

I would so love to work in a book store.

*song = I’m Reading a Book by Julian Smith. It’s so awesome, and I want you to watch it so much, that I’m going to embed it in this post.


  1. I love reading. I'm totally adding these books to my goodreads list.

  2. Booooks.

    One: I'm so glad that you and I own like half of the same books. Well done.

    And two: I was totally going to post that Julian Smith video on my blog but if I do it now it'll be like I copied you. Dang it! We think too much alike. Stop that.
