- Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl (here)

Thats the list for now but I’ll be adding to it periodically.
The other fun challenge I have for myself is to read all the books referenced in the Netflix TV show “You” which can be found here.
I might even re-watch the show if I get the time after I complete this just to see if I pick up something new with my new lens.
Alas that is all for now. I’m super excited to get back into my love for reading, I have neglected it for far too long. Is it just me but I feel like social media and technology have decreased my attention span so much so that I can’t sit down and just enjoy a book in its entirety without getting a bit agitated after 5 minutes! Which is weird cause I used to be that girl who could sit down and just read for the whole day and be content, I would read at any moment I had even in the car on the way to school. I miss that. So here’s to getting back to the things that made us feel good, a chase for nostalgia I guess.
Never forget to carpe all the diems
