What's On Your List?

I am a constant list-maker. I have a To Do list, Grocery List, and a Reminder list going at all times. The notion struck me this week that I also have a few other important ongoing lists. I am constantly adding to my To Read list as well as my Currently Reading list. Each of these lists then feeds directly into my Read list and Favorite Books list. I love keeping up with the books I have read or am currently reading or that I plan to read. I use Goodreads and this site helps to keep my lists organized and allows me to connect and discuss with other readers and even authors. I want to share a few of the books on my personal Favorite Books list and also share the books that I have on my Currently Reading list.

Ten of my favorite books (series books count as one work on my list):

Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man
A Lesson Before Dying

On Writing
The Midnight Club


The Hunger Games Series

Here is what I am currently reading (for school and for fun):

The Help
The Return of the King
Women and Writing
Psalms of Me
Criticism Major Statements
The Bridge of Deaths

I have had a lot of fun sharing these lists. What is on your Favorite Books list? Currently Reading list?

Happy reading leading to happier writing!

  1. Hi, Emily! You've received a blog award. Stop by my blog to pick it up! :)

  2. Thank you, Vanessa! I am honored!

  3. The Help. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read the book, but at my wife and mother's prompting did watch the movie. Loved it. I can only imagine the book must be ten times better. It's on my "eventually" list, but the list is just. so. long!

    1. My "to-read" list keeps getting longer as well! I can say that The Help is quite good so far. I am about halfway finished with it. The book is quite a unique read in my opinion. :)
