The Friday Five (3)

The Friday Five comes from Sarah Dessen's blog on LiveJournal. I've been following this blog the longest and love how she recaps her week with the Friday Five, now called The Five.

Here, I will recap my week with connections to books I am reading, have read, want to read and other random musings.

1. Where are the Reviews? When I first started this blog I thought that I would be able to crank out review after review because of all of the books that I have read. But that didn’t quite happen. I am so new to the world of blogging and excited to find this arena for books that I have been spending so much time looking at other blogs and not doing too much with my own. So I am saying it here and right now – more reviews are on the way.

2.   A friend loaned my Eat, Pray, Love at least 2 and a half years ago. And I must admit, I haven’t even read the first page. Once I found out the movie was coming out, I thought I definitely was going to read the book before seeing the movie. I prefer to read the book before watching the movie whenever possible, but now that the movie is out (and may not be in the theaters much longer), I decided that I am not going to read the book at all and I’ll just watch the movie. It probably is a great book, but I just can’t give it the attention it deserves right now. I guess I should give my friend her book back.

3. I am currently reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I fell in live with The Hunger Games and rushed out to get the other two books of the Trilogy. While I rushed out to get them, I’ve been a little slower in actually reading it. I’ve had the book since Saturday and I am only on chapter 3. Yep, just chapter 3, I guess all of the time reading blogs is taking time from reading books too.

4. Soon to leave the shelf  I am taking a small trip for the holiday weekend, so at least two books will be leaving the shelf: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, Forget You by Jennifer Echols; I’ve read three of her books this summer and just can’t get enough!

5. Random Rambling: I just finished listening to Carol Burnett’s This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection on audiobook. I love Carol Burnett and wish that her variety show was still on (at least on reruns). Just thought I’d put that out there.

Happy Friday!

  1. Happy Friday to you! I would love to read Carol Burnett's audiobook. She is so great. This summer I just finished a humorous divorce memoir by author Constance Feathers called, "Secrets of a Mysterious Older Woman," and really enjoyed it. Some readers will think it is fiction, since the truth is so unbelievably wacky. Very unique!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment!
