Books for 2016

Both the number of books I read and the record-keeping of said books was pathetically dismal this year (ALL THE BABY-BLAMING), so instead I am writing about books I am looking forward to reading in an effort to get me out of this Netflix-watching, never getting past the first chapter, book reading slump I am in.

1. As You Wish. A behind the scenes look at the making of The Princess Bride. I want the audiobook because Cary Elwes narrates it with cameos from all the cast members.

2. Terry Pratchett Discworld books. Sci-Fi/Fantasy is usually my least favorite genre, but it happens to be Seth's favorite and he has been telling me I need to read these books for quite some time.

3. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying-up. Because my hold at the library finally came up and I want to see what all the hype was about. Plus, it's about tidying up - my favorite.

People keep recommending The Martian to me, but as getting lost/stranded/killed in space is one of my (totally illogical) worst nightmares, just hearing about the premise of the book fills me with stress. I'm not sure if I can handle reading it.

It's a problem when I have a mile long To Be Read list and nothing sounds interesting enough to pick up. Reading slump, you are the worst.
