What I'm Reading // Wild
As an English Literature major, a lot of pleasure reading fell to the wayside during college. When you're trying to plough through two novels and an epic poem in a week, it's hard to find time to read anything else. Wild was a victim of this reading dry spell. It went somewhere on a list until I had the time and the urge to read for fun again. I found this book inspiring. As a young woman traveling and living on my own, I found her journey to self discovery beautiful. She was brutally honest throughout the whole book and I was able to identify with her unpreparedness and the way she learned as she hiked along. Not knowing exactly what I was getting to in Spain, it was nice to know that I wasn't the only one correcting mistakes as I went. And at least I didn't lose four toenails in the process.
