Oooh, I Want to Read This #1

Hello everyone! Welcome to another fun feature! One of the many things I don’t let on about is that I love to read.  Maybe I’ve already mentioned it.  I’m not sure.  Anyway, I’ve been reading since I was two, two-and-a-half years old.  You can ask my mother on this one, for I was reading out of Stephen King’s “IT” to help prove that concept.  Granted, I didn’t know WHAT I was reading, but I was reading.  Anyway, as with any person who loves books, there’s always a “To Be Read” list.  I’m no different.

In fact, what sparked this off was this article that I just happened to come across while surfing through Facebook.  I read through it, and found one of the books that I happened to own, but haven’t read yet.  So, with this post, I’m going to go through some of these lists that I come across, and talk about which of these books that I want to read in the future.  So, without any other hesitation, let’s dive right on into some of the future reads.  Also, click on the image of the cover to go to the Goodreads page about the book for more info.

Penpal

Now, I’ve had this book for a while.  It was a present from Beth some time ago, along with another horror book, “Forsaken”.  The premise of the book sounds intriguing.  And I do love myself some ghost stories (if you haven’t noticed already, I started out with the scary and spooky young).   And, it apparently started from some forums from Reddit, so while it could be hit or miss, I’m willing to try it.  After all, I’ve read some not so great books before (I’m looking at you Bird Box).

The Lottery and Other Stories

I think I’ve read this before.  Not 100% positive though.  But the concept of the story is very familiar.  Even though I may not have ran into a complete copy of the story, I can most certainly say that elements from this story are present in other stories and media.  Now, I’ve already got one of Shirley Jackson’s books on my “To Be Read” list, so putting this on there isn’t too much of a stretch.  I also like short story collections.  So, I’ll be interested to see what other short stories are in this collection that I might very well enjoy.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for you today.  Tune in next time for another couple of choices from a different list.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.
