the list: books.

January 7, 2012 in books,life

I hate snow, but I am SO happy it’s
winter {remind me in a couple weeks that I actually said this… I will
likely deny it. Even if it’s written down on my blog…}.

happy because we had a crazy busy 2011. I don’t think we really had any
free time. Which could explain my lackluster blog posting. And with
winter finally here, and snow piling on us, I have an excuse to stay at

Which means I can tackle my lengthy list of books that are waiting on stand-by:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I recently read Hunger Games and fell
in love. I would have immediately picked up this book if it weren’t for
my desire to read The Last Lecture before our book club meeting.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy
. I’ve heard great things about this book. And I adore her. I was
waiting for the price of the kindle version to come down, but I can’t
wait any longer. I’m buying it.

All There Is: Love Stories From StoryCorps by Dave Isay. Confession: I
cry every Friday listening to NPR Morning Edition. OK, that’s a
half-truth. Almost every day I cry listening to NPR, but on Fridays I
cry extra hard. The StoryCorps project makes me sob. Put it into a book?
I’m guessing sobs are in my book-reading future.

Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude. Because it can’t hurt, right?

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. This book is assigned for my next book club meeting. I’m afraid to finish reading this. Yes, Ive started. But it’s been… emotional. And as emotional as this book may be, I’m certain that will give me an even better perspective for 2012!

The Five Love Languages: The Secret To Love That Lasts by Gary D Chapman. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while. So why  not?

What is on your must-read list? And what should I add to mine?

Mindy Kaling's book was SO FUNNY. I really enjoyed it. 🙂

The five love languages was eye opening.. Truly. Best book I read in a long time.
