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.
