My Life According to Books 2012

It’s that time of the year again, when I share a little bit about my life using sentences from titles of books I read in the last year. Thanks to Pop Culture Nerd for the inspiration to write this post and a big thanks to The Picky Girl’s blog as well (who I first heard about this from! )  Check out the inspiration for the post here and also take a gander at My Life in Books from 2011!

Here is my 2012 report on my life, according to books! Enjoy reading and please comment with your choices as well, or post the link for your blog post in the comments if you post it on your blog:)

Every Monday, I look/feel like: Crewel (Crewel World) it really is a cruel world when Mondays come every week! (Gennifer Albin)

 Last time I went to a doctor/therapist was because: Marco Polo didn’t go there (Rolf Potts) We were sworn enemies. No, really- I felt like I needed to expand my horizons and thought this would be a good place to start to make sure I was headed in the right direction. I didn’t want to follow Marco Polo for that, now did I? I wanted to get to the right place and not somewhere off the map!

Last meal I ate was: Eat that Frog! (Brian Tracy- As the man at the night market so kindly recommended, where I am currently living in Taiwan) Okay I admit it, I did not eat it. Though I did eat the stinky tofu…

My savings account is: Cloaked in Red (I read Gone by Michael Grant a few years ago, I believe, so couldn’t put that in here) Vivian Vande Velde

When a creepy guy asks for my number, I: tell him I am a Gypsy Bride and don’t have a phone (I really don’t have one though, so this is a half truth, which brings me to the next one…) (Sam Skye Lee)

Ignorant politicians make me: pull out The Liar’s Bible to cross reference what they are saying 😉 Lawrence Block

Some people need to spend more time: Smiling! (and laughing!) Smile: The Astonishing Powers of a simple act by Ron Gutman (Try it sometime! 🙂

  My memoir could be titled: Life Nomadic (Tynan)

If I could have I would have told my teenage self: Love must be tough (but not tough hearted towards you- the right love is healthy and loyal- it must be kind hearted!) -James Dobson

In five years I hope I am: Writing Away (Lavinia Spalding) as a successful author!  It is my goal to write my blogs more often and put my first book out (!) so here’s to a happy 2013 filled with lots of joy and writing!
