As we have been experiencing by now, lock down boredom has kicked in for many of us. We have started to ran out of puzzles to do and board games to play and we are trying to avoid staring at the television all day long.
One thing that I have always loved to do when bored is read, and today I would like to share with you my lock down reading list. These are my go to books that I can read over and over again. Sometimes I see different aspects of the story that I didn’t see before, little details that were looked over the first few times.
So here is my lock down reading list:
Night By Elie Wiesel
I was first introduced to this book when it was a class assignment in middle school. Recently, I found out that this book is part of a trilogy and bought all three.
Night is the first of the trilogy. It is an autobiographical account of Elie Wiesel and his father as they live in Auschwitz.
This book is engaging, fascinating and heart breaking all at once. My personal love of history, good and bad, started with this book. Wanting to know how people lived, died, and survived in history.
Cedar Cove Series by Debbie Macomber
This series has more than 12 books and I have read every single book more than once, including the one offs that go with it.
Cedar Cove is a fictional place based off of Port Orchard Washington, which is only an hour away from where I love.
These books all connect and include the same main characters through out. I have always wanted to know what happens next when I read a book and this series gives you that. It’s not just one story but many continuing stories over many books.
Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
Well… These had to be on someones list, right?
We all know the movies and most of us know the books too, even if you’re not one of the fans.
I, however, am a fan of both the movies and the books. I own them all and have read them a few times. These books are great for lock down because they are big and take time to read.
I do have to say that there are definitely things in the book that change how I see the movies now because I read them after.
I will just say it… I am no longer team Edward after reading the books.
Well, that is My Lock Down Reading List. Have you read any of these? What is on your reading list? New books or old favorites?
