In an effort to keep my reading list in check to obtain my goal of reading 30 books this year, I present to you my dear readers what I am paging through currently.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling – I have adored Mindy for quite some time and I honestly can’t figure out why it took so long for me to pick up this book. So far I am a few chapters in and it is quite hilarious. Her struggles with weight are the same struggles I have faced through out my life, and I love the tone of her writing, as I feel like she is talking instead of trying too hard to write a book. It doesn’t hurt that in my head, I hear her voice while reading.
The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland’s Haunted Kingdom by Aubry Graves – This was a quick read for me, as I read it waiting for my plane to board from LAX to Sacramento when leaving Disneyland two weeks ago. It is similar to another book I read, The Park After Dark: An Unauthorized Guide to the Happiest (Haunted) Place on Earth by Richard Carradine. It delves into the paranormal at the park as well as some of the deaths that have occurred at the park. Both of these books are a must read for the Disney diehard.
Turn Around Bright Eyes: The Rituals of Love and Karaoke by Rob Sheffield – I have read Rob’s other books all of which I have immediately fallen in love with. I don’t know if it’s his writing style or musical references that pull on my heart strings, but I am so glad I took a chance on Talking to Girls About Duran Duran: One Young Man’s Quest for True Love and a Cooler Haircut in the clearance section at Urban Outfitters.
