Book Banter | What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? - The Buried Life

Hi guys! So I've decided to start a new section of my blog called Book Banter. I'm pretty busy so I don't have too much spare time for leisure reading, but when I do I want to write some book reviews. So first on my list: What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? by The Buried Life.
So here is a little background information. For those of you who have never heard of them, The Buried Life consists of four guys who have made it their life's mission to complete a bucket list consisting of 100 items that they have all agreed upon. The members include brothers Jonnie and Duncan Penn, Dave Lingwood and Ben Nemtin. Originally from Canada, the boys have been traveling all over the country, crossing items off of their list. The catch is, for each item they accomplish on their list, they help a stranger complete something on their bucket list! Great concept, right?
This book came out in 2012 and has since been a New York Times Best Seller! I got this book when it first came out and, lucky me, I got a signed edition! If any of you have heard of Post Secret, this book has a pretty similar format. Parts of the book are stories from the boys that contain pieces of their pasts and how they have gotten to where they are. There are also stories from people that they have met and helped along the way. However, a large majority of the book is fan submissions about things that they would like to do before they die. This, along with the matching artwork created by artists, are so interesting to read. I really like this style of book and would love if they would release another one!
If this sounds like the type of book you are into, I would highly recommend it! You can click HERE for ordering option! If you do read it, please let me know what you think! Also, they had a show on MTV for a little while so you can also look that up if you'd like to learn more!
What are some of the items on your bucket list? Do you have any book recommendations? I would love to hear about them in the comments below!
