Top Ten Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Much About Them:
I loved this prompt! I ended up going through my Goodreads and looked at my 5 star ratings. I wasn’t that surprised by how many I had, although a few did surprise me (I gave the second Selection book a 5 star? Really, Past Kate?). Of these 10, some of them came back to me a bit when I looked at their summaries, and I didn’t completely forget their existence… but all of them are books I’d have to re-read before diving into a sequel (Pivot Point, I’m talking about you, because I do have your sequel lying around here somewhere, but then I got distracted by all the great YA Romance Kasie West writes now, so I’m just not sure when I’ll get to you). Some of these books I remember loving, just based on their covers, or the author. It’s not a surprise that they are mostly YA- books I probably devoured in a day or so, gobbling up their great plots like a literary Ms. Pac-Man (only I really suck at video games, so I’m not sure why I went there). Even more interesting… none of these were audiobooks. I know some people don’t think audiobooks “count” as reading, but I would totally disagree. I might have to re-read all of these and hope for 5 star experiences again!

How do you beat the winter blues?
A. Umm… I don’t really get the winter blues. I like the winter. A few times I’ve been snowed in somewhere, but I’m usually content to read and watch Hallmark movies. I’m not the type of person to get bored easily, and I’m not afraid to drive in bad weather in case I just need to get the hell out of the house before I go all Jack Nicholson in The Shining. This quote sums up how I feel about most weather:
