I am the worst! After my last post, I went away for the weekend to see family for Thanksgiving and hardly touched a book. I read a bit of Tiny Beautiful Things, started The Graveyard Book and bought and read Baba Yaga’s Assistant, but that was it! But I DID get some solid baking done. Seriously, I can’t wait to have a functional kitchen someday. Baking in Jay’s parent’s kitchen – with an island – was pure bliss. SPACE!


Tomorrow night, my fiance and a friend of ours are going to finally see The Martian, and I still have 187 pages to go, so I have to get my butt into gear. Tonight, everyone is busy doing their own things, so I plan on having a long bath and getting into bed early with the book. I would hate to see the film without finishing the book first.

But wow, so far #15in31 is kicking my ass. Instead of being better, my reading is worse than normal! What is going on!?

Actually, I know. Having a friend living with me does kind of feel like a constant sleepover. We stay up late chatting, or watching movies. I’m noticing more than ever that I’m not 21 anymore and need to actually sleep more than 5-6 hours a night. So, somethings gotta give eventually.

So let’s set some goals for the next 7 days:

  • Finish The Martian (obviously)
  • Finish Tiny Beautiful Things (less than half to go!)
  • Finish The Graveyard Book
  • Change pace and read something different to get out of slump.

I will not be defeated by this challenge! Stay tuned.

  1. I like your attitude about this! You will totally rock this!
    I just saw The Martian on Tuesday and it was SO GOOD. The one thing I wasn’t a fan of was Kristin Wiig’s character – I expected more based on Annie in the book. But I’m willing to let it slide because the rest really was so good.
    Sounds like I’m on the hunt for Tiny Beautiful Things!
