I’ve already checked a book off my 2016 Reading List! I love progress.
I read “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed on the train ride from London to Paris last week. It was an absolutely amazing, beautifully written book.
I didn’t anticipate being quite as moved as I was reading it, and I spent about 45 minutes on the train trying unsuccessfully to not cry, then trying to at least not ugly cry. Then giving up and just repeatedly wiping my eyes and nose and trying to not make the poor gentleman sitting across from me completely uncomfortable.
I loved this book from beginning to end, although I heard the movie was just MEH. I can see that. Most of the book is an inner monologue — Cheryl Strayed’s thoughts and reactions and feelings as she walked the Pacific Crest Trail. It would be hard to accurately transition that to a movie format (unless the movie was narrated, I suppose.) As a book, though, it was just divine.
I’ve put a link to the book over on the sidebar in case you want to check it out too. If you do, let me know what you thought!
As I go through my reading list, I’ll add all the books to the sidebar. I like the idea of keeping track and of being able to share what I’ve read and maybe discuss the books — like a virtual book club on Little Nesting Doll!
