    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

    This book struck a cord very close to home for me. Having to deal with alcoholism within my own family and being a Psychology Major, I feel I can better relate to the struggles and emotions in the story.

    #CCSpin List – Number 21

    It’s spin list time! YAY! I’ve historically preformed horribly with these…i don’t think i’ve ever finished a spin book. Wow! But i still want to atleast participate. I’ve decided to theme my list with all scary books since the reading timeframe is October. That will def motivate me to read. Ive decided to choose seven books and randomize them into 20 spots. Not sure if this adheres to the rules, but i love this list! I’m hoping for Tenant of Wildfell Hall!

    #CCSpin #19

    Have you heard? It’s spin list time baby! Woot! I preformed horribly last time and didn’t finish my book. It got slightly boring…and it didn’t really seem to be moving forward in the storyline. I do still want to finish it though…eventually. This Spin is a bit different. Not only is it themed for “Chunksters” but we also have all the way into January to finish! YES! Maybe this will make the difference for me!

    Moby Dick Discussion

    I recently read Moby Dick and couldn’t wait to post my Moby Dick Discussion! Totally LOVED IT! I’ve been wanted to do a discussion post for weeks…but haven’t really figured out the right questions to ask. But recently I can across a reading guide to Moby Dick as well as the book A Lifetime’s Reading and they both gave me a lot of inspiration!
