Currently Reading

 
I don't think it's ever possible for me to read just one book at a time. Although I don't actually read them at the very same time, (that'd be kind of weird to have all 5 books open at once, eh? I'm weird but not THAT weird) I like to have a variety to choose from whenever I feel like opening a book. At the moment, I've got quite an interesting bunch that I've been reading off and on. Without the risk of getting all "Reading Rainbow" on you, allow me to introduce them...

The first book is The Times We Had by Marion Davies (aka, William Randolph Hearst's girlfriend-lady friend-person-lover?...you can read more about W.R. Hearst in this post, if you're interested) and it's basically her autobiography. She was an actress back in the day of silent films and such. I really enjoy autobiographies so although I'm less than half way into this book, I'm sure it's one that will keep my attention.

Next is Leonardo's Lost Princess by Peter Silverman and this is right up my street, as I'm an Art History major and anything to do with art AND mysteries fascinates me. This is about a man who purchased a painting by an unknown painter and started suspecting that it might actually be a lost painting of Leonardo Da Vinci's. It's amazing how they do the whole authentication process of art and I'm very curious to see if it ends up being a true Leonardo painting.

Third on the list is actually a textbook I got for a class that I didn't need to take after all. But it's still an interesting-looking book and I intend to read it. It's Individuality in Clothing Selection & Personal Appearance (whoa, that's almost a tongue-twister - sort of). In short, I think it's basically a book about how personal style reflects on what others think about us and all that psychological stuff...

Some of you might know by now that I'm really into classic things- shows, movies, actors, etc. I don't really like our current pop culture. So when I saw this book about the classic TV show The Munsters: A Trip Down Mockingbird Lane (by Stephen Cox), I just had to have it. I seriously watch the show non-stop on Netflix because it's just so laid-back, funny, and GOOFY. The book is proving to be just as good.

Lastly, a book about Fashion (design drawing course). It's basically filled with designer tips about technique and textures, fabrics, etc. I'm no designer but I still enjoy learning about that world...

There you have it...what I'm currently reading (apart from my snooze-worthy textbooks for the classes I'm taking this semester). What are you currently reading? Do you enjoy these kinds of posts?

  1. I used to be like that where I had 13 books going at the same time for me! I tend to take out more fiction books that anything else but a fashion design book sounds right up my alley as well! Reading really is a joy~

    It's cool that you're an art history major! I bet you learn lots of really interesting things!

    Thanks for the post! I enjoyed the read~

  2. thanks for the ad on my blog!
    i look forward to reading your posts. :)

    i'm an avid reader too and can't stick
    to one book at a time, just like you haha.
    i'm reading the latest 'pretty little liars'
    (which is awful, but i need to know how it's
    going to end) and tina fey's book.

    i used to watch 'the munsters' (and lots of
    other shows on nick & nite because i could
    never sleep early as a child). i'll have to
    start watching again on netflix!

    and that fashion/psychology book actually
    sounds pretty interesting. i'll have to look
    for it.

  3. Haha I really like your writing style, you're so funny!
    I always read one book at a time because I'll start mixing up the stories! Especially when I'm dreaming about the stories of the books and then I'll wake up super confused in the morning.. hahaha! I haven't read any of the books you mentioned, but I think some of them might be pretty great! I'm currently reading Insurgent, it's the second book of the Divergent series - it's good, not really great literature, but it's entertaining!

    Love this post!
