The roaring twenties are coming to a screeching halt...actually I am going out of my twenties as gently as I came into them. I thought it would be interesting to look back on the last decade of my life as I brace to begin the next one...
A list from my twenties (or "What the heck was I...")
I remember feeling like I was on-fire reading this book well into the night and early morning of 2004. It's still one of my top 5: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, read in 2008...I am as in love with Oscar as a narrator as I am with Scout (To Kill a Mockingbird).
I read the Twilight series in 2009 and it catapulted me back into the feverish type of reading for pleasure that I needed post grad school. (Plus they were pure unadulterated fun).
Desperately Wanting (all that stuff I had to have):
