Life in literature

Though it’s only September, I’m already thinking about how I’ve spent 2012. Fall lends itself to those sorts of musings, I think — especially when I have a pumpkin spice latte in hand (will be getting one of those later today, have no fear). And since I’m never without a book, that introspection means I’m thinking about reading.

Everyone had fun with this bookish meme earlier in the summer but, as always, I’m behind the times! To complete the thoughts, I used only the books I’ve read in 2012 — and pulled the prompts from Wordsmithonia and Roof Beam Reader.

And yes, I’m totally Bossypants. Could be my middle name.

  1. I have the creativity of a piece of mud, so I have never attempted this meme. I love your answers! I fear unfamiliar fishes too! Just not the Sarah Vowell ones.


  2. This meme is so much fun to do and also read other responses. Also I didn’t know you’d read several books on that list. I guess I missed the reviews somehow so now I’ll have to go back and read your reviews!


  3. Haha! I’m planning on cheating and waiting up to the end of the year to do this one so that I’ll have more choices! I love how you fit Bossypants and How to Eat a Cupcake in there!


  4. Loved the meme! By the way, after reading your review of it, I bought Fifth Avenue, 5 am for my best friend on her birthday. She loves it! Am getting myself a copy, too. I need to get my hands on Bossypants too.
