               Well, hello there, beautiful people! I've come to the realization that I've only been doing this challenge for 7 days and it really is starting to feel like a challenge, indeed, but it's okay. I'm still not used to blogging every day, but I know I'll get there. As you can tell by the title of this post, I'll be talking about my favorite books today. I actually wasn't a huge fan of reading when I was a kid; I just used to read because in middle school and in high school, we were required to read for 15 minutes each day. But now, I love to read and I'm happy to share some of my favorite books with you guys, so let's get started.

Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
I'm currently reading this book (for the second time) and it's one of the most interesting books I've read in my entire life. The first time I read this book was after my senior year of high school when I was taking a summer Sociology course and I remember being completely mind- blown. The book talks about how real success is achieved and how sometimes, success doesn't have much to do with an individual's IQ or how hard they work, but instead, success is achieved by opportunities that are only available to a handful of people. It also talks about how what seems like normal life coincidences are actually patterns that we, as humans would never think twice about. It's incredibly interesting and I highly recommend this book.

Divergent by Veronica Roth
I haven't finished this book yet, but I'm very excited to get to the end! I'm currently listening to this book on Audible, Listening to books as opposed to reading them is very new to me, but I'm starting to really like it. It's actually really convenient to have a book to listen to when you're doing chores or something that you don't need to focus very heavily on. I got the book for free when I signed up for Audible using an affiliate link from one of my favorite YouTubers, The Nive Nulls (tons of YouTubers have this  link, by the way). Like I said, I haven't finished the book yet so there's not much I can say about it yet, but so far, I'm loving it.

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
I know that there's a little bit of controversy surrounding this book. A lot of people that I've talked to about this novel think that it's all about sex, which there is a lot of, but there's a lot more to the book than that. A few people have also told me that the BDSM aspect of the book is all wrong (which apparently angered a lot of people) but honestly, that's not something I'm going to talk about in this blog post... or any other blog post. I've read the first two novels in the series and I'll be starting the third one after I finish reading Outliers. If you can get past all the explicit material in the novel, you'll see that it's actually pretty interesting and the drama is intense! The second novel will seriously have you feeling every emotion possible. It's also fun knowing that the novel is a Twilight fan-fiction, so when you're reading it, you can kind of tell what characters in the novel were inspired by characters from Twilight. Also, the 50 Shades of Grey film is FINALLY being released this year and I'm super jazzed!

               So those are just a few of my favorite books. I still haven't read The Fault in our Stars or Maze Runner yet (I know, I'm so behind), but they're next on my long list of novels I haven't come close to reading yet. Comment and let me know what your favorite books are. Also, if you have any book recommendations, I'd love to hear them!

With love from your girl,
