September In One Word
5 Things That Happened In September:
1. I finally read book 1 of the HARRY POTTER SERIES. *basks in applause* You know I’ve been ashamed of this and endured MANY years of harassing for this on this blog alone. Some of you followed along with my #HPvirgin tweets and were amused by my HP innocence. At one point I tweeted, “Oh that Snape…I can tell he is going to be trouble.” and someone said, “Oh you are just soooo cute and have NO IDEA.” GUYS I AM SCARED.
2. Will ran a half marathon and did AMAZING! Like in the top 2,000 out of 18,000 runners and it was his first race. I can brag about my husband yeah??
3. Book club went and saw Elizabeth Wein when she came to town (have YOU read Code Name Verity??) and then the Fierce Reads tour stop came to Philly and we went to that and had A BLAST. (Great meeting Leila Sales after LOVING This Song Will Save Your Life and the one and only Marissa Meyer who made me love cyborgs).
4. I got in a WICKED reading slump. It’s not even about that I’m not finding good books but it’s more like I’m just fickle and can’t commit to anything. I read 1 page and bail on everything.
5. I really spent a lot of days enjoying the weather because it’s been BEAUTIFUL.
