Christmas Break Reading


(but for real).

I’m going to attempt to accomplish this ambitious list. 

Here are the books I’ve been dying to read all semester — plus a few more I’m leaving out: 

& – Better by Atul Gawande

& – Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

& – Born to Run by Chris McDougall

& – Night Circus by Erin Morganstern

& – Arcadia by Lauren Groff

& – Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks

& – (of course, a long time in finishing) The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkkien


And, nearly every Christmas movie is on my to-watch list: 

& – Anna Karenina (loved the novel last summer; not sure about Keira Knightley, but still can’t wait to see how they put all the drama together on the big screen)

& – Les Miserables (haven’t read the novel; anticipating the movie!)

& – Lincoln (love Civil War era movies…)

& – Life of Pi (a novel from back in high school!)

& – The Hobbit!!


What’s on your to-read and to-watch lists?
