With so many unfamiliar things coming my way, obviously I'm going to bring comfort objects to help make the transitions. And really, what kind of book blogger would I be if those comforts didn't include books? I've been thinking a lot about it, and here are the five books that will be definitely be starting my new life with me:
1. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
The absolute, 100% perfect answer when someone inevitably asks me, what do you like to read? A strong, entertaining series about finding yourself (and giant machines and fabricated animals, among other things), paired with gorgeous pencil drawings, there's no way I'm leaving this one behind.
2. Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I don't know why I've been putting this one off for as long as I have, but I have. A perfect read for lazy nights back in the dorm room, I'm also hoping to use my copy to help connect with other bookish nerds in my dorm building.
3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
One of the books that I'm quite guilty about never getting to, now here's my chance! This book has helped bring so much joy to my friends and I'm hoping that it will be a great reminder of who I still have back home.
4. Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer
The Artemis Fowl books have been so important to me for years I can't see how I can head off without bringing at least one! I'm bringing my favorite, book number two.
5. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
For whenever I'm feeling down or need a laugh I checked my library system, thinking that they must have a copy, and was shocked to see that they don't! Well, now I'll just have to bring it with the hopes of converting people to one of the greatest books I've read this year!
