I love lists. They make me feel like I’ve accomplished something. (They also cut down on the likelihood of me forgetting to do something important.) I keep a running weekly To-Do list that Baby Brother finds hilarious. (What does he know, anyway?) It keeps me organized and motivated. (And the Saint says I get more accomplished before 9 a.m. than most people do all day.)
Regardless, I’m linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for my Week in Review. Thanks, Meghan.
I made bread. It’s sad. I know. The recipe claims it makes three loaves. Obviously, I would have been better off if I’d just turned it into two non-hobbit-size loaves. It’s still tasty, though. But does anyone have a good (preferably wheat) bread recipe? Easy is also a plus, clearly.
I wrote one short paper and half of a (not short) one.
Read…oh, maybe seven books? I can’t quite remember. I do know that I read My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick in one sitting, completely engrossed in it, then immediately bought the next one, The Boy Most Likely To. Read that in one sitting, too. Wow. (Yes, I do love to read YA, even though I am in no shape, form, or fashion a young adult. I also love to write YA, so, in my defense, it’s market research y’all.) In addition to the above books, I also read Oisin McGann’s Wisdom of Dead Men, (book out tomorrow, review up on my writing blog tomorrow as well), Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: A Handbook for Unapologetic Living by Jes Baker (Why must we fat-shame, people? Does it really matter what someone else chooses to wear or look like? Hello, it’s their life! Seriously. Some of the author’s anecdotes made me so freaking angry!), All Fall Down, by Ally Carter (Yep, YA again.), and The Wicked Woods, by Kailin Gow. Oh, and stuff for school.
Worked three days at the job, plus two half-days (One of which included traipsing to Wal-Mart to buy Christmas paraphernalia and decorate the lobby of my clinic. If you knew how I despise crowds and the commercialization of Christmas, you’d understand why this was a major accomplishment for me.).
I’m fairly certain I accomplished at least a few other things, but I can’t, for the life of me, remember what they were….
One thought on “week in review: all about the books”
I think a week of reading sounds magical. I actually spent hours on Friday finishing off my current book and it felt fantastic.
Keep on listing. Little brothers be damned.
