Humpday confessions

Midweek confessions 2

Confession no 1:  I’ve always been a fan of Kristin Hannah’s books and enjoyed “Firefly Lane” so much.  But I’m taking a while to get into the sequel “Fly away”.  I’m halfway through now and just not that into it.

Confession no 2:  Speaking of books – I made my Goodreads goal 35 books this year instead of 40.  I feel less pressured and less rushed already.  I love reading and feel it should be fun and enjoyable.

Confession no 3:  I still get excited for my birthday (still a couple of weeks to go).  I don’t care how old I get I still look forward to it, love planning and counting down the sleeps.  I’ve told hubby I just want to celebrate with him this year.  I’m not doing a dinner with friends or family – just want a weekend with my ❤

Confession no 4:  Season 3 of “This is us” started Monday and I haven’t watched it yet.  Don’t know why I’m dragging my feet.  Just shed so many tears watching season 1 and 2 and feel I need to be in the right mood before I get into the new season.

Confession no 5:  I had a manicure a couple weeks ago and because it was a treatment the nail polish used was clear – there was a faint hint of pale pink/lilac.  I loved the natural look and how long it lasted.  Usually I like bright and bold nail polishes – unusual for me to want subtle!  Am I getting old?

Well that is all for this week.  Not too scandalous!

    I LOVED Firefly Lane when I read it in 2013, but still haven’t been all that motivated to pick up Fly Away. I felt the same way about my reading goal last year, which is why I set the bar low at 25. It was such a relief not feeling that pressure that I actually wound up reading 53! And I agree, I love celebrating my birthday! I always take a vacation for my bday- no dinners or parties, just a nice little getaway. Happy early birthday!

    I’m glad to know about Fly Away, I still want to read it but it’s good to know it might be harder to get into. I think setting a smaller reading goal is just fine, you might even find yourself surpassing it, you never know! And I have to say, season 3 of This Is Us is amazing. I had kind of gotten out of it in season 2 a bit, but I’m back on the wagon now because it is incredible.

      I wish someone had told me that it is not an enjoyable read. I am now more than halfway through and still not enjoying it. Firefly Lane was amazing!
      I watched the first episode of This is Us last night and now I’m hooked again! All it took was a few minutes and I was like “SO GLAD THIS IS BACK ON TV” 🙂

    Oh I didn’t realize This Is Us was back again! I don’t have TV, I just stream it after and apparently hadn’t seen anyone else talk about it. I love This Is Us so I’m going to have to catch back up!

    I’m closer to 50 than 40 and I still get ridiculously excited about birthdays (mine and everybody else’s!) Age is a privilege denied to many and I really believe it is something worth celebrating. Yay for your Goodreads goal – I’ve already read 7 books this year but I think that’s because they were all relatively short, easy to read and unputdownable (I think I just made up a word!) I haven’t finished This Is Us yet either, I have to mentally prepare myself and stock up on tissues!

      I totally agree with you – age is a priviledge and I know it seems the norm to complain about getting older but in reality it is a gift. I’ve always loved birthdays and as an adult I get as excited for my own as for my hubby’s birthday.
      7 books this year – well done! That is amazing – I’m currently on no. 2 and 3 (I read a couple at once).
      I still need to watch episode 2 – it was on last night but I needed to be in the mood before watching!

    Nothing wrong with adjusting your reading goal. It’s something you should enjoy, not feel pressured to do.

    Birthdays should be celebrated. Every single one!
