I am so glad that today is pretty much over. It was such a busy day and so many annoyances. I really dislike Mondays, because they are always so busy. I think the only thing I love about Mondays is that some of my favorite TV shows are on; Bates Motel and The Following. I am beyond excited that the new seasons started back up. Now I need Hannibal to start back up and everything will be right in the world; at least my world anyway. Do you have any Monday night favorite TV shows?
Anyway, onto why I am really here…
Day 11: Any five books from your “to be read” stack.
For this topic I decided to go with some of the books that have been on my reading list for awhile and since I do the Friday Frinds posts and those show the newest books added each week.
The Moaning of Life: The Worldly Wisdom of Karl Pilkington by Karl Pilkington
S. by J.J. Abrams
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick
Anyone that really knows me knows that I love Karl Pilkington. He understands me. We are the same person. If he was God, I would totally worship him. He has several books out and I want to read them all. I’ve read one of them, which was his journal entries while he was doing the first season of An Idiot Abroad, so hilarious.
“‘I’ve been on the planet for forty years now, and I’m still none the wiser as to what it’s all about really. I’ve never worried about life’s big questions. People at my age sit about pondering “why are we here?” The only time I ever asked myself that is when Suzanne booked us a surprise holiday to Lanzarote.'”
My older sister bought me a Karl Pilkington shirt – it says “I won’t be socializing. I don’t do that.” – I love this man.
All of these books sound SO good to me and I really have no idea why I haven’t read them yet. I’ve had them on my list for so long and they kind of just got lost with my never-ending add sprees. I have seen a few people on here and seen on Pinterest where they have made a TBR jar and draw books from there to read next. I was debating on if I wanted to do this or not. It would help to get to the older adds.
I have so many good books (well, might be good books) on my TBR list and it’s kind of sad that they get lost, because I am adding so many every week. I need a better solution to this problem. I have ideas forming in my head. I think I need to write them down, sort them out, and put one or more into play. Honestly, this can get kind of overwhelming when you want to read so many books. sigh.
What are some of the books from your reading stack? Any that are really old? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
Anyway, it’s getting late and I want to at least get one of my TV shows in tonight before I have to go to sleep. By the way, I probably have just as many TV shows that I watch as I do books that I want to read, lol. It’s kind of crazy that most people my age are worried/stressing about work, money, kids, family, weddings, or other “adult” stuff and I am over here stressing about what to read or watch next. Remember when I said I don’t feel at all 27? Well, there you go.
