Book Lovers Day

In honor of book lover’s day, I’m going to give quick run down of what I’ve read this summer, and what’s still on my to be read list.

The first book I read at the start of the summer.  It was also on the library’s book suggestion list for summer reading. Romance novels are a guilty pleasure for me, so I didn’t hesitate to pick this one up. It definitely didn’t disappoint. I wouldn’t call this chick lit, but I would classify this as a beach read.  I read it very quickly. It was a nice way to kick off my summer reading.

 

This book was also on the library’s summer reading suggestion list.  I bypassed it a few times, but after reading the blurb, I was curious, and decided to give it a chance.  There is so much I could say about this book.  I think the best reading experiences are the ones where your book gives you more than you could ever expect.  Mild curiosity lead me to pick this book up, and I fell in love with it.

This is what I am currently reading now. In light of all the changes I’m witnessing in Brooklyn, this book seemed like a good read.  I’m only a few pages in, but I hope this book will dig deeper.

These are the last two on my to be read list. Interesting picks aren’t they?  After a few heavy reads, its good to jump into something light.

I also read these books in hardcover, no e-books.  So I’m celebrating book lover’s day with a good ole book in my hands.

Unbalanced

That is how I felt when I realized the calendar turned to August.  I’ve never been as busy as I am, and it seemed like it crept up out of nowhere.  It was a reality check though.  If I’m going to do the things I plan to do, there is no place for procrastination, something I’m a professional at.  I’m balancing two  jobs that I really enjoy, I have graduate school applications I want out for the spring semester, other personal goals, and I really want to revive this neglected blog.

The initial panic subsided after realizing that panicking is silly.  Panicking gets you worked up and accomplishes nothing.  So I scolded myself for  panicking. I also went to target where back to school shopping is in full bloom.  I have been out of school for quite some time, and I found it was just what  I needed.  There was an atmosphere of excitement for the upcoming school year from kids and their parents.  This is how I hope to feel when I go back to school.  I want to do this. So  I grabbed a few things for myself.

I”m anxious but no longer panicked.  I’m currently working on deliberate time management.  This is certainly something different for someone who is so use to “winging it”.  I’m sure there will be trial and error along the way.  However, I am sure I will learn a few things, and hopefully have lots to share.
