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*

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

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…
