Dreamy December Day One Participation Post #1: Goals and Expectations
This is a busy week at work but I am hoping I can use this read-a-thon as enticement to keep up on my reading for enjoyment during this busy time of year as well. I have many books piled high on bookshelves staring longingly waiting to be picked up to be read. With this in mind, here is what my tentative goals and expectations are:
- Read 2 to 3 books this week
- Write notes about the books I do read (for those I intend on reviewing)
- Write 2 to 3 reviews on books I have waiting to be finished up
Dreamy December Day One Challenge Post: Bookish Wishes
My birthday is right before Christmas as well (December 22nd), so I always request a gift card from the bookstore for it. I usually load it up onto eBook accounts so I can download books without them charging my credit card or bank account over the year.
With being a librarian, I try really hard not to buy books but if you ask my husband, I know I still buy way too many books. LOL :-D Some I know I will be purchasing:
Miranda Kenneally has a new title coming out in spring, Breathe, Anna, Breathe but the cover has not been revealed but I know I will be buying it once it comes out. Also, Robin LaFevers' Mortal Heart her third in the His Fair Assassins series will be releasing in 2014 at some point, I will purchase it. :-) Those are just the YA titles I know I want--does not count the adult titles! LOL
Dreamy December Day Two Participation Post #2: Progress Update
I did not get to participate in the Twitter Chat today--too much happening. :( I checked out the great author interview with David Lomax. I did get a little bit read today and finished a book.
1) Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
Since it is a re-read for me though, I am not sure I am going to count it though. I picked it up randomly because I needed to decompress after a stressful day and this book always makes me smile so there you have it. :)
I hope I will get to do more tomorrow but we shall see. I hope the read-a-thon is going well for the rest of you.
Dreamy December Day Challenge Post 2: Dreamy Destinations
This is about where we would want to travel if we could for the holidays. I think it would be really cool to spent the holidays snowed in a cabin somewhere such as Jackson Hole, Wyoming (USA) or Telluride, Colorado (USA).
Then other times I think it would be amazing to wake up and look out at palm trees and see beautiful crystal blue skies and topaz colored oceans.
But, ultimately I imagine we will end up spending Christmas at some point at Walt Disney World.
