Book Reviews Gone Awry

Okay, so instead of doing the weekly book review (which I have obviously not been doing anyways) I just signed up on So, here is a list of the books I've read in my 52-books in 52-weeks journey (not in chronological order of when I read them). In the future I'll just be updating my Good Reads profile and not blogging about the books I've read unless I have strong feelings about them one way or another.

-Twilight by Stephenie Meyers
-New Moon by Stephenie Meyers
-Eclipse by Stephenie Meyers
-The Five People You Meet in Heavern by Mitch Albom
-L'Ecole des Femmes by Moliere
-Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry
-Anthem by Ayn Rand
-Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
-Atonement by Ian McEwan

I am currently reading 1984 by George Orwell and Le Roman de Silence by Heldris of Cornwall (pen name of an unknown Medieval French writer).

A few things...

A few things I do poorly:
-remember dates, events, and peoples' names (I have a TERRIBLE memory)
-make big decisions - though I'm getting better at this

A few things I do well:

A few things I love:
-Puppies... but I don't want one, so don't anyone get any fancy ideas...
-People who make me laugh and think about things I never would have without speaking to them
-Indian food
-Heart rate monitors

A few things I... don't love:
-People who treat me like I'm 5
-Passive aggression
-Getting stuck in the snow (and while we're at it, Spring that turns back into Winter. Boo and hiss)
-Not having a built-in dishwasher and an actual laundry room
-Being the HOA president

A few things I want to do before my life is over:
-Learn how to Oil paint
-Travel to India, Australia, Ireland, Brazil, Tahiti...
-Take ballroom lessons
-Learn how to sew well enough to make something even moderately attractive or useful
-Live in France at least once
-Learn how to (and actually) plant, maintain, and 'harvest' a great vegetable garden
