Bedside classics 

I always have a small set of classics beside my bed. These are the ones which have been here for quite a while now because I haven’t picked up any of them to read yet. This tiny space between my dresser and my bed is where I keep my classics TBR.

 One thing I really wish to do is start reading a lot of classics, I mean I never read them one after the other, it has always been one classic every 2 months or something like that. So many times I’ve started one but never ended up finishing it. 

Classics fascinate me and yet I wonder why can’t I bring myself to actually dive right into them. To me, There’s just something  about reading a book which was written at a time when the lifestyle was so different than what it is now. It is an insight to into that time through the the words of that author and that is unlike any experience which can’t be compared to history lessons or shows. I know it requires patience because classics is that one genre that fascinates yet intimidates me. But that does not stop me from picking them up every now and then. 

Plus there’s nothing like falling asleep beside the comfort and coziness of a couple books and vanilla scented candle.

JULY

1            June was that only month of the year where i managed to read just one book. That’s right, only one! But that is also because i didn’t particularly feel like doing anything because lets just say, it wasn’t the best month for me. So the only book that could get me out of that state of mine was “Norwegian wood” by Haruki Murakami.

IMG_4165This month, however, i look forward to get some decent amount of reading done even with all the work i have going on. I picked up these books randomly as they have been sitting on my shelf for quite a while now. So here goes,

  • All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr which i picked up because of booktube.
  • Four seasons in Rome by Anthony Doerr  which i got just because.
  • All the bright places by Jennifer Niven because i want to read a YA contemporary this month.
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan because it is about time that i read it.
  • On the road by Jack Kerouac. I bought this last year at the Jaipur Literature festival.
  • Into the wild by Jon Krakauer, after several attempts of starting this book and never finishing it, this month i want to.
