quick lit – next page, please {november 2018}

My reading life has taken a back seat to the excitement and thrill of the holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas and the associated activities have a way of taking priority. And if I’m being honest, I have taken some time to do other fun things. Don’t get me wrong, I have been reading, I just didn’t complete any books.

Currently Reading

  • Becoming Michelle by Michelle Obama. I have been looking forward to this book since Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. I was so interested in hearing about her time in the White House, I started reading at Becoming More on page 281. It’s very interesting.
  • This Messy Magnificent Life: A Field Guide by Geneen Roth. The astute readers will note that I read this one last month. Yes, I’m reading it again.  It’s just that good.


This is just sad.

Abandoned Reading

  • Transformational Speaking by Gail Larsen. I’ll be picking this up next year.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Let’s be honest, I am probably not going to finish this before the year is out. And so, I am not going to be able to finish the Modern Mrs. Darcy’s (MMD) reading challenge. Oh well. HOWEVER, the MMD’s 2019 Reading Challenge is up and ready. I will be checking it out soon.

So, how about you? Have you been as bad as me? Head over to Modern Mrs. Darcy’s for this month’s round-up.  I know the community over there has been reading.

enjoy life…

    Oh man! I can’t wait to get my hands on Michelle Obama’s book. I think I am number 100 or so on the wait list at the library 🙂 Hopefully I’ll get by chance soon. She is so amazing, and I’m sure her book will not disappoint.

    I haven’t finished as many books lately either. November and December are such busy months that it’s harder to find time to read. But hopefully after Dec 25 I’ll do lots more reading for at least a week. 🙂 I really want to read Michelle Obama’s book too! I’ve seen a couple of interviews with her about it and she is so refreshing to hear from again.
