June Update

I've been working hard on my research paper for my LAST graduate class. I just found out I passed my comprehensive exam so now it's just getting this paper done and approved. I feel like I have so much to do but I know it's not all that much when I take it piece by piece. I work on it a limited amount of time because 1. I'm not a morning person, 2. I want to spend time with my toddler, and 3. it drains me lol.

I have read a couple of books though. I read, The Diva Wraps It Up, by Krista Davis. It's like the 5th or 6th book in her 'Domestic Diva mysteries' series. It's set around Christmas time and it has all kinds of Christmas-y things in it like a light decorating contest, a cookie swap, decorating tips, food recipes, and murder..oh wait. I love this series. It's one of my personal favorites and I preorder the books when I see there's a new one coming out. If you're looking for a good read, an easy read, a fun read- lots of laughs and sarcasm with a little bit of 'omg, she's so annoying' but still I love it.

I'm listening to Hemingway's Girl by Erika Robuck. It's for a book club I'm in and it's slooooow going. Not even past chapter 2. I'm reading on my Kindle, Shine Shine Shine by Lydia Netzer and if I'm being honest the cover drew me to it. It's really pretty.
I also bought The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- because let's face it if I'm going to watch the movie, I'm going to read the book first so I can complain about how the movie fails. Flat Out Love by Jessica Park is the other book I bought (don't judge, I had a giftcard for Amazon- had being the keyword). It sounded interesting from the description so I'm going to give it a go.

I do have a ton of other books on my kindle to read and add more and more books to my 'to be read' list everyday thanks to Tumblr. Speaking of, if you're on Tumblr: follow me at http://mommylibrariantom.tumblr.com/ or on Twitter at https://twitter.com/LibrarianTom227
