Summer reading

Normally, I hit summer with a fully planned reading plan.  One year I re-read Harry Potter.  Another year I re-read all Austen and Bronte.  This year I find myself with no plan.  Part of the problem is that the weather was so horrible for so long that I did not feel summer would ever arrive.  Also, work is stressful and busy.  This summer is a "fly by the seat of my pants" reading plan.  Here is what I have read thus far.....

Ordinary Grace
William Kent Krueger

Life after Life
Kate Atkinson

We Bought a Zoo
Benjamin Mee

Eating in the Light
Doreen Virtue

World War Z
Max Brooks

On a whim, I decided to read the Left Behind series.  I passed them up when they were popular.  I don't believe the doctrine in the books but I thought they might be entertaining.  I've read three.  They are not well written.   But once I start with a series, I almost always finish it. 

Left Behind
Tribulation Force
Timothy LaHaye

Upcoming are two books for book club

Gone Girl
Gillian Flynn

Blood Hollow
William Kent Krueger

Since I've not read 1-3 in the series.....I'm going to try and read them before I read book 4.

I also have book 11 in the Psychic Eye series

Deadly Forcast
Victoria Laurie

This list will keep me busy. 

What are you reading? Do you plan a summer reading list?

What in the world is the matter with me

I seriously don’t know what’s wrong with me.  I really want to blog.  I LOVE blogs.  I follow so many blogs that My Yahoo won’t let me add any new blogs.  I spend a lot of time reading blogs.  It is safe to say that I am obsessed with blogs.  I have many thoughts that run through my head and I think, “I need to blog this”.  But I don’t follow through.  I don’t know if I am scared or just lazy?  It irritates my husband.  He tells me often that I should be blogging more.  When we have conversations, he often says, “You really need to blog this”! 
I do have such a wide variety of interests.   TV, food, books, movies, houses, current events just to name a few.  Yet, I feel like I should focus on one thing. Maybe that’s what is holding me back.  My mind is ALL over the place 24/7 yet I think that my blog should be focused.  Perhaps I need to let go of that and really just let the blog be like my mind.  Eclectic, off beat, a little weird, and fun. 
Going forward I’m going to be more stream of consciousness and I guess we will see how it goes.
