I pride myself on being a resident book worm. I pride myself on reading the Twilight series in one week and reading TFM in less than 12 hours. I have read two books in 24 hours and can read 600 pages like people drink water.

There is something about reading that just gets me, getting lost in another world and letting it consume you for a little while. My love for fiction is one of the many reasons I got into writing (fun fact: One of my top goals is to be a published author, let's go even further and say New York Times Best Seller).

I was so excited for this Christmas break because I was finally going to sit down and curl up with a good book. The semester was so insane that I didn't read, at all, and it was starting to get to me. Even with all the boredom I've been experiencing, I've only read two books this entire break. Still, it's better than nothing.

I started to peruse the Barnes and Noble website along with Goodreads and complied a list of books that I need to get my hands on. 

// The Selection by Kiera Cass: An old time fairytale type of story mixed with The Bachelor and The Hunger Games. A bunch of elite ladies are competing for the heart of the one eligible prince in the kingdom; it sounds pretty cool and it's been on my list for at least a year. It's part of a trilogy so I will need to start reading ASAP.

// Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: This book has been everywhere for quite some time now and I'm pretty surprised that I haven't read it yet. I usually jump on all the big time book bandwagons, especially when they're being made into movies. I've already bought this on my iPad and I can't wait to start reading.

// Skinnydipping by Bethenny Frankel: I've been wanting to read this book by Ms. Frankel since it hit bookstands and I've had it rotting away on my Nook for a few months. It seems like an easy chick-lit read that I could breeze through in a weekend. 

// Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington: This book seems to be famous on Instagram. It's the ultimate coffee table book and I've seen it everywhere. After I watched the documentary "The September Issue", my interest in Grace Coddington skyrocketed. I need to get my hands on this book.

These are just a few of the many books on my Goodreads "To Read" list. If you don't use Goodreads, you definitely should. It's a great way to keep track of all the books you have read and want to read.
