It has finally happened....I've run out of vacation days. Tomorrow I have to go back to school and I'm a little nervous. For the first time in years I have been able to sleep in until 8 a.m. I am relaxed and don't feel rushed to get somewhere or get things finished, which actually made me more productive in a sense. Weird!
So in case you missed the memo, it's January. It's the month where everywhere you turn you are reading or hearing about everyone's resolutions. One of mine was to read 4 nights a week. It may only be 5 days into 2014, but I'm 5 for 5 (and twice on Friday). The reason?
I used to think of Nicholas Sparks as being just a romance author. This one does have that element, but there's more to the stories that really drew me in. I think it has 400+ pages, but it was definitely a quick read for me.
So, what's next on my list?
I'm probably a little late to the game for this one, but I just have to see for myself why this is a book everyone seems to be talking about.
So, what are you reading? I have 4 books on my wishlist, but I'm always looking to add more...just in case. I tend to like books that fit my genre, which I kindly refer to as tragic fiction. That doesn't mean the characters have to die. Instead, it just means the characters are dealing with personal struggles and/or overcoming tragic circumstances. My favorite author is Jodi Picoult and I've read almost every one of her books (though even she has a couple I won't go near).
Do you know Martha from Primary Paradise?
