Friday’s kind of caught me off guard here. You know how it is, in a week where Wednesday is essentially Monday, Friday can sneak up on you.
What I’m trying to say is: I don’t have a Five on Friday list at the ready. Hm, hm, what can I write about? I know! I could talk about how I'm doing such a great job of sticking to my resolutions even though it's January 4th already!
Ha. Of course it’s too early to actual say I’m sticking to these goals but at least I feel like I’ve got a pretty strong start. The weather’s been nice enough to get out on the Vespa and realize that maybe I won’t be too much of a scaredy-cat to start riding it around regularly once the weather is warm. And I really do think I can beat my goal of 32 books read in a year as long as I keep finding books that get me hooked and remind myself I’m not obligated to finish ones that don’t.
Here are five books that had me hooked in 2018 AND five more that I’m hoping will do the same in 2019:
Did the trick in 2018:
5. The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe V. Wade
High Hopes for these in 2019:
1. My Year of Rest and Relaxation (so far so good, started last night and it's really good!)
4.Dumplin’ (LOVED the movie on Netflix)
