The Year 2015: Books I've Read...

Well, it's that time, the time to do end of the year postings.  My first one will be about the books I've read over the year:


  1.  Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me by Chelsea's Family, Friends & Other Victims.  Anything having to do with Chelsea is always a go for me.  I love her & I miss her TV show SO much.


  2.  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  I really enjoyed this book but I could not stand the way it ended.  Drove me banana sandwich.  I did also enjoy the movie as well.  Plus, got to see Ben Affleck's "business".  Tee hee!


  3.  Invisible by James Patterson.  I love, love, love me some JP.  His books rarely disappoint & this one was pretty dang good.  I always recommend JP to people & would recommend this one as one to check out.


  4.  Paper Towns by John Green.  I know that it's been awhile since I've said it but I really love John Green.  His books always capture me & I speed through them quickly.  Great reads & the movies aren't too shabby either.  I did buy this movie as soon as it came out but have not had a chance to watch it yet.  I should really fix that.  :)


  5.  Zoo by James Patterson.  This book was amazing!  My favorite book that I read this year.  I finished it in about a week & that's pretty dang fast for me.  I loved it from the first page all the way to the last.  The show though, blah!  It's was SO far from the book that my coworker & I stopped watching it after two episodes.


  6.  L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad.  I love LC, I really do & this book/series has been on my "To Read" list for quite a long time.  I was not all that impressed.  It wasn't bad but it wasn't that good either.  I most likely won't read the rest of the series.  Sorry, Lauren.


  7.  Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich.  I like the silliness that Janet puts into her books but I read them far between each other as they are all pretty much the same thing but with different names & some different circumstances.


  8.  Looking for Alaska by John Green.  Another great one by John Green.  I think that I liked this book more than Paper Towns but not as much as The Fault in Our Stars.  If they decide to make this one into a movie, which I think they should, I'll be at the theater to view it!


  9.  Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris.  It's taking me a little bit to finish out this series, I think that I have one left & I don't know why.  I've enjoyed these books immensely (after separating the books from the show) but I just haven't finished them yet.  I'll get there though.  :)


  10.  The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.  I saw a preview for this movie & right away downloaded it to my Kindle to read.  I'm still reading it &, again, I'm really enjoying it, I just don't have as much time as I would like to have to read it more.  I will have it done before the movie comes out so I can go see it right away.

So, ten books for the year.  Not a lot but I think that taking the summer & doing "Parking Lot Lunches" helped me get through  a lot of these.  Maybe next year, I can do twelve books.  *crosses fingers*

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/orApril.


My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:





So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
