Books - part 1

As posted yesterday, I am planning to read a book or two each month in 2011.

Here is a list of books I am hoping to read in the first six months of this year

They are in no particular order of when I am going to read them (apart from Lian Hearn trilogy) and I may add to this list as I start to tidy up my very messy scrap room where alot of my books are kept.

They are as follows:

Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Life and Work of Eric Morecambe by Gary Morecambe
Tales of the Otori Trilogy - Across the Nightingale Floor, Grass for His Pillow and Brilliance of the Moon by Lian Hearn
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
Encore Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I'm planning to write a summary of my thoughts about the book at the end of each month or whenever I finish the book.

Heres to Happy Reading in 2011 and Good Evening from Pickle Land

  1. Of all that list, I've only read Persuasion lol! It is one of my favourite books, though. In some ways it's my favourite Jane Austen, but Pride and Prejudice is hard to beat... I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on each title :-)

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.
