The two week update | Weekly Snapshot

Oh yikes, this once-in-two-week blogging routine better not be a habit. I hope it's just an indication of how busy July can get with planning for a birthday and doing different summer things. Life The girl had her birthday party today with friends from school and she had a fun day! It was nice seeing the kids have fun outside of school and take over the bouncy event place like they knew every corner of it. I was grateful for everyone who were brave enough to come to a party despite recent rises in case count. Thankfully most or all of us were vaccinated so that made the decision-making easier. Now that the party is behind me, I have a ton of things to get back to. I am hoping for a quieter week ahead and a chance to catch up on a few things. Reading I honestly haven't read much in the last two weeks. Well, at least not prose. Instead, I've been reading Marvel Comics. Don't ask. So far, I've read Thor: Son of Asgard and Wolverine's Origin stories. Loved all of th

Original TBR Challenge (2010)



Here's another challenge that I am doing in a couple of book clubs so I plan to blog about it here as well. This challenge is hosted by MizB at MizB's Reading Challenges.

Challenge Guidelines:
1. The challenge is to read 12 TBR books in 12 months — you can read those all in one month if you want, or one a month, or however you wanna do it.
2. You should have a list posted somewhere for others to see
3. You CANNOT change your list after January 1st, of the current year!!!
4. You can create an Alternates list of MAXIMUM 12 books, if you want, in order to have options to choose from (you can read these in place of books on your original list).
5. Audiobooks and e-books ARE allowed
6. Re-reads are NOT allowed, as they aren’t TRUE “TBRs”
7. You CAN overlap with other challenges

I plan to just create one list and stick to it. Here's my list of 12.
Update (Jan 22, 2010): I read only 6 books out of the 12. At least that's 50% success.
1. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
2. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
3. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
4. Night Runner by Max Turner
5. Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
6. Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding
7. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
8. Lipstick Jungle A Novel by Candace Bushnell
9. The Firm by John Grisham
10. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
11. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
12. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

The Undomestic Goddess! Bridget Jones! awesome reads. Undomestic Goddess wasn't as good as Twenties Girl, but still Kinsella.

I hope to read Moloka'i this year too.
You havent' read Little Women? Remember when Joey on Friends read Little Women? that's where the phrase freezer book came from.
Have fun with your books.

raidergirl3, I agree, I loved Twenties Girl the best so far! That was freaking funny!

Sadly, I haven't read Little Women to date, though I have read the story and watched the movie in so many adaptations. My problem is a huge huge tome sitting at home, which is putting me off.
