It's been a while, hasn't it?!
I've been happy but busy.
Too much to detail...but if you are a follower of my Instagram, you know what I've been up to.
(If not and in case you want to be, my IG name is Mrs_David_Vasquez.)
I HAVE NOT done any scrapbooking since my last post.
I HAVE been a little bit creative recently...
I will share more about that in another post (maybe...LOL I haven't written a blog post in a while; don't want to pressure myself)
Today I will share w/ a you one of the hobbies that has been keeping me busy so far in 2015:
I have loved to read since I was a kid and have tried very hard to keep up w/ it all my life.
Sometimes it was easier than other times but it never was a hobby that completely disappeared.
It was one of my goals to read more this year.
To help me w/ that goal I have been inspired by this list: "2015 Reading Challenge"
Which I found through this blog: "Lauren Likes".
Scroll down to item #7 on her list and you will find the link to the above "challenge" as well as a few other reading challenges.
I picked the one I did because it has the feel of a scavenger hunt.
Scavenger Hunt = Fun!
So far I have:
- A book with more than 500 pages: "Allegiant"
- A book that became a movie: "Silver Linings Playbook"
- A book with a number in the title: "Three Wishes" (Currently Reading)
- A funny Book: "Seriously...I'm Kidding" (Currently Reading)
- A book by a female Author: "Girls in Trouble"
- A popular author's first book: "Still Alice"
- A memoir: "Yes, Please"
- A book that is set in high school: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"
- A book by an Author you never read before: "The Fault in Our Stars"
Through this challenge I have read some very good books and discovered some new authors...
A couple of those authors, whose other books I am very eager to read: John Green ( author of The Fault In Our Stars) and Lisa Genova (author of Still Alice), and an author I am curious to try again: Liane Moriarty (author of Three Wishes*).
*I'm actually having a little bit of trouble getting though this book but I have read a lot of reviews that state this book is actually her worst. Based on that information, I will finish this one and give another of her more acclaimed books a try.
Hopefully I will be able to complete the challenge, IDK though, some of those categories are difficult, but if not I will have at least have had fun trying!
