Apparently all your good luck wishes worked because I handled my Accounting exam like a boss!
Woooohooo!! Thank you for all of your encouragement. Here's hoping I can keep it up!
Other than acing my accounting exam, I've been busy preparing for my next exam (for my other class on Monday), prepping and eating healthy food (look, there's proof! here and here), working on project "back to the gym," cleaning up my house and spending as much time with Bails as I can. Life sure is busy, but boy is it good. :]
Tonight, I've got plans to go see Deb of Smitten Kitchen with my sister and a few blog friends. Other than in elementary school, I think this is the first book signing I've ever been to. The nerd in me is super excited. For some reason, despite this being a cookbook signing, it is making me want to dive head first into some novels, and I'm not talking about the one I'm currently reading for class. Perhaps when Spring Break (from school) arrives, I'll be able to do just that. Fingers crossed.
In no particular order, here are the novels on my to-read list (note that this list is not as extensive as my list on Goodreads which has 286 books on my "to read" list- these are the books I've actually purchased which are sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read):
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
Mariana by Susanna Kearsley
When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories by Molly Ringwald
Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Nelson Johnson
Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo
Faking It by Elisa Lorello
Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin
Man Seeks God: My Flirtation with the Divine by Eric Weiner (HIGH on my list of to-read!)
All She Ever Wanted by Barbara Freethy
Brain Rules by John Medina
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
Life From Scratch by Melissa Ford
Bounce: Living the Resilient Life by Robert J. Wicks (another that is high on my list)
The Inspired Life: Unleashing Your Mind's Capacity for Joy by Susyn Reeve
Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness by Candace Cameron
Some of these might seem totally random, and they are. I get sucked in by the Kindle Daily Deals and end up buying a ton of $1 books that sound intriguing. It's kind of a problem. I had to cut myself off at Christmas and I'm not allowed to look at the daily deals again until I read all of these.
P.S. Completely and totally unrelated... Did anyone watch Castle these last two weeks? Oh. My. Gosh. Please discuss. I'm obsessed.
Anything you've handled like a boss lately?
Can you start a book and stop reading if you don't enjoy it? I have a hard time doing this, but I recently gave up on J.K. Rowling's new novel A Casual Vacancy. I started reading it the day it came out (four months ago) and am only 43% done. Lost cause.
