March Reading List

While Minnesota was having great weather last weekend, Florida was experiencing tons of rain. So, naturally I read 2 teen lit books in entirety. Next up on the agenda:

StrengthsFinder 2.0: Lately I’ve been looking around at people on LinkedIn that have my dream jobs to see how they got there. A lot of people I’ve looked at have their strengths from this test on there, so I decided to see if I have what it takes, personality wise. Pretty sure I’ll get “woo” for one.


The Night Circus: It is my understanding that this is about two true magicians (no tricks) are put against each other in a battle to the death, only they might be in love? Sounds kind of like Hunger Games.


Speaking of, the books I couldn’t put down this weekend:


Hunger Games: The movie is coming out this month, and I love adaptations of popular media. By the way, you should read this Wall Street Journal article about it. I need to get book 2.


The Perks Of Being a Wallflower: My friend has a tattoo of a quote from this book which had an effect tattoo’s rarely have–I went to the book store. Love how many great insights into human behavior there in there. My favorite quote from the book: “I just hope I remember to tell my kids that they are as happy as I look in my old photographs. And I hope that they believe me.” Oh, and they’re also coming out with a movie adaption staring Emma Watson

December Reading List

This December I will be reading two books I’ve been trying to get to.

First, in honor of Christmas I will be reading Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ;s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. Not Michael Moore, or even Mandy Moore.

I always read Christopher Moore when I’m in a Nicholas Sparks rut, and I need to read something silly. Get it here.

The next book I’ll be reading is A Stolen Life: A Memoir by Jaycee Dugard. I might actually read this one first so the other one can cheer me up from it.

It’s about Jaycee’s life when she was kidnapped and forced to live in this pedophile’s backyard for years. Might make me appreciate my life more, or it might scare the hell out of me. Get it here.

Actually, there’s another book I’ll be reading. Confessions of a Guidette by Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

Just Kidding.
