Bookish & Not So Bookish Thoughts

is a weekly meme hosted by Christine over at Bookishly Boisterous, where we post things that are on our minds.  Head over there and check it out!

1.  I watched the new show Empire.  I know I am dating myself, but did it remind anyone else of Dynasty?  Cookie is the new Alexa Carrington!!

 

2.  I saw this on Shelf Awareness’s FB page-and swooned.  I loved this book-and Hugh Jackman.

3.  I have been in a little bit of a slump with the ARCs I have been reading.  Not really enjoying all that many-until this week.  I read Unbecoming by Rebecca Sherm in one day and I loved it! I can’t wait to write the review.  Have you read any amazing books for review lately?

4.  I booked a trip for my family over the kids’ spring break.  My 16 yr old son and 15 yr old daughter wanted to go to-Disneyworld.  With a side trip to Universal for some HP fun.  While I am excited about going to HP world for the 1st time, I thought-Really?  Disney again?  But then I realized this might be the last time for a good long while, so if they want to go-ok.  I can’t believe how much they love going to Epcot and walking around the different countries.

5.  I am reading Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald- is it me or is this his BEST novel?

6.  Looking forward to getting some skiing in this weekend!  If it has to be cold, then I want to at least be able to ski.

7.   I love my gym (as much as anyone can love a place you go to torture yourself).  It has great treadmills I use during the winter, fun spin classes, and an awesome hot yoga class.  I HATE going to the gym in January.  Everyone with a New Year resolution to lose weight is there.  Good word- get off my freakin treadmill!

8.  Another thing I hate about the gym- the yummy mummies.  I saw a woman yesterday on the machines “working out” with about 5 other women.  Forget that they were working out there jaws about 100x more than anything else.  One woman had full make up on-fully done up- a beautiful top bun, and sunglasses on top of her head- working out?  My age- not some 20 something home from college.  Really?

I guess I don’t actually love the gym- so scratch that.

9.  I actually succeeded in my Goodreads challenge for 2014 and read 100 books.  I was so happy.  I upped it to a whopping 115 this year.  I should have made it 200, because really, failure is failure, whether by a little or a lot.

These are all the thoughts in my head.  I am off to find an empty treadmill, then to hot yoga, so I can witness how much more flexible and agile everyone else is in the class.  While sweating my ass off.
