Living in Fast Forward & Attempting to Slow Way Down Wednesday, Dec 15 2010 

Hello Readers,

So, no book review today or anytime in the next day or so. I admit, I’ve been reading a couple books. I just could not get into them; I will not be continuing to read the Vampire Kisses series, I just can’t do it. I’m not saying they are terrible books, I just can’t get into them.  Like I’ve said in previous entries, that particular series is for younger teens. I wish you the best of luck. 🙂 Now that I have said this, let’s move on.

A couple things on the agenda and possibly worth mention:

Finals are over. I am so happy. Yet sad. Truthfully, people can tell me all the time to get a life–but more often than not, my life is  divided between the notebook paper and the glossy sheets in my textbooks. I’m not really sure how to cope with relaxation and nothing to do but sit. I know, I know. But I thrive under pressure–it just works for me. Anyway, Fall semester has ended and school is out for a month-ish. I don’t want to think about my spring semester yet, not yet, not yet. I don’t know who I’m trying to kid… I need the break as much as the next person. I’m tired in more than one way–knowing I’m too young to feel this damn old… I think I will pick up a new book.

Speaking of new books, guess what is happening?  Angelology by Danielle Trussoni has finally made its way to my library. I’ve been waiting since May–that takes dedication people! So… during Christmas break, methinks I will read a couple good books. Unfortuntely for you… or maybe just me, there won’t be any new posts until the new year. Or at least I don’t think there will be. Being in a place with no internet has its perks. Actually, quick update, not only is Trussoni’s novel in, but so is

Just A Little Bit Wednesday, Oct 20 2010 

Hello Readers!

 I thought I might let you in on what has been going on with my 2010 Reading List and a little bit about me… just a little bit. Here goes…

I have removed a certain number of the titles I had on the list. For a couple of reasons I might add–this way nobody can spit thorns in my direction. There were just too many titles to get through. It was a wonderful thought–read over 150 books in a year or less. Granted, I am still reading most of them–I just took away about 50 titles, maybe a couple more. I had too much of a topic that I love reading about in small doses, namely European royalty. Also, I started reading Nefertiti, but I have to return it–have to read other books, so I’ll be returning to Egypt one day. 🙂 In any case, that is what’s going on there.

New news with me–I am in the process of making a 2011 Reading List. It is very short and reasonable. The books for 2011 seem to have a theme so that should be fun to play with and see where it takes me. I would like it if I could finish it by the end of 2011, that is how short it is. I am giving my 2010 list a little over a year to be done, however, starting Summer 2011, I’ll probably be mixing up the lists just a bit. I will release the 2011 list in the new year. However, I suppose if you want a sneak peek, you could always ask–ya know? 😉

My original list can be found here, 2010 Reading List. My revised list goes as follows:

Anything that is crossed out, I have finished reading and reviewed by October 19, 2010.
