My life has definitely taken many unexpected turns in the past few years. 2011 is something I am going to look at as a catalyst year. Of course, I have several goals in mind but the most important ones are those that are going to make me feel like a more complete person, inside and out. The purpose of this blog is to keep up to date with book reviews because I feel as though writing will be cathartic to me--and I can't afford ballroom dancing lessons. =). So a little bit about how this started:
In 2010, I got completely tired of Disney movies, reality tv, and television in general. I felt like I was in a rut and not getting anything out of my "me time" PLUS, my friend Amanda wanted me to go watch the new Harry Potter movie that was coming out and refused to let me go until I had read all the books and seen all the previous movies (which at the time I had not done yet!) So 2 months and 7 books later, I was hooked on HP. After that, I wanted to find other things to read and took suggestions, so with the help of my awesome friends at work, I made a list...and get this, I LOVED it. I got so much out of it and feel so much more fulfilled than when I was watching all that TV. I have to admit, I've never blogged before, so writing a review for a book is going to be a new challenge for me but I think it's all part of my new hobby and new "living vicariously through the characters" kind of life! My friend, Julie does an incredible job at blogging, so if anything, my crazy blogs will make hers look even better!! =)
My goal for 2011 is to read 100 books. With a Kindle and a library card in my pocket, I don't think it will be an unreachable goal!
So enjoy the ride, like I will and definitely make comments and suggestions, since I'm making this up as I go.
