In case you haven’t gathered by now, I like lists. I also like books. Thus, I am going to make another list about what I would like and/or plan to read over winter break before school comes back and drowns me in dense, archaic language and too-small print. Bear with me, the list is pretty long and random. Now, in no particular, things I want to read over winter break are:
- Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer
- Wisdom’s Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
- Sherlock Holmes! I started rereading the stories over the summer, so I’ve read 3 of the novels and the first two collections (except “The Final Problem,” where I stopped), so that means four(?) more collections and a novel (The Valley of Fear)
- Alice X. Zhang’s tumblr, because her artwork is amazing and she’s hilarious
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman
- The Mentalist fanfiction
- The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan
- The latest everything about Benedict Cumberbatch and new Doctor Who (thank you, Google alert!)
- The Tale of Desperaux by Kate DiCamillo (reread)
- The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani
- The Storyteller’s Daughter by Cameron Dokey
- the three Skulduggery Pleasant books sitting on my coffee table, plus the second and third one that I need to reread before I start those (that’s gotta be at least 3000 pages altogether, not even counting the first one)
- the Sherlock casebook because yes, I am that much of a nerd
- Figment! See if my classmates had any worthwhile suggestions
- The Crack in the Lens by Darlene A. Cypser (yay, little Sherlock!)
- Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer, one of my favorites of the series
- Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer, where Arty pretends to be a regular teenager at the beginning
- Old creative endeavors on my computer I haven’t touched in months
- Cool ways to paint my nails that I will probably never attempt.
- And this guy! Because he amuses me : )
Probability that I will read all of these books/other random things over break? Pretty low. What can I say? I’m a procrastinator.
Hope you all have a good break and see you in January!
