My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Not Blogging. 

  
Wow.  It’s been well over a month since I’ve blogged. I think about it most days, but just don’t have the desire to actually write anything.  I really should get back to quickie posts from my phone – that did seem to make it easier to get something together. 

While I haven’t been blogging, I have been reading.  I’m ahead of pace for my goal of 40 books for the year – 12 done as of last night.   

Here’s what I’ve read so far: 

  1. Everything I Never Told You, By Celeste Ng (January 2)
  2. All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr (January 6)
  3. We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver (January 15)
  4. After You, by Jojo Moyes (January 20)
  5. If I Stay, by Gayle Forman (January 20)
  6. One Plus One, my Jojo Moyes ( January 25)
  7. Honeymoon in Paris – A Novella, by Jojo Moyes (January 25)
  8. The Silent Wife, by A.S.A. Harrison (January 27)
  9. The Choice, by Nicholas Sparks (January 31)
  10. Sheltering Rain, by Jojo Moyes (February 7)
  11. The Girl You Left Behind, by Jojo Moyes (February 10)
  12. Still Alice, by Lisa Genova (February 12)

I’m currently reading Where She Went, which is a follow up to book 5 above.  

I’m hoping at some point the desire to blog comes back. Until then, I will just keep reading!  

Have you read any good book lately?

What I’m Reading

I finished book #33 of 2015 yesterday – Amy Poehler’s Yes Please – and have to pick my next book.

I have heard We Need To Talk About Kevin is good, with a surprising twist. But I’ve also heard it’s a bit heavy, and although I have a copy of it on my iPad, I’m not sure that’s the kind of book I need right now. 

Instead I’m going to read something that, I hope, is a little lighter. 

  
My friend Toni recommended this book to me. I’ve enjoyed the books she’s recommended in the past, so hopefully I will like this one too. I’m a few pages in and so far, so good. 🙂  

What are you reading?

Do you have any recommendations for what I should read next?
