My Reading List

Books are a huge part of my life. At any given point, I usually have my head buried in the pages of a book or two. I have been stuck in the pages of several books for a while, not quite finishing any. I read as much as I do because reading makes me a better writer. However, I have not been an engaged reader for a while. Life happens. Thus, I have not written in a long time. I plan to return to reading more actively and to finish all books I have both in my closet and on my Kindle. So here goes a list of books I have been reading lately;
1. The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time, Jeffrey D. Sachs
2. Zen and the Art of Happiness, Chris Prentiss
3. Trail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love, and the Search for Home, Kim Sunée
4. The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, Gary Chapman
5. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot
6. Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
7. Open City: A Novel, Teju Cole
8. Something Blue, Emily Griffin
