What I’m going to do when my exams are over…

I’ve made a to-do list. To give me strength to get through the next fortnight.

1. Read. In particular –

  • The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
  • The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flannagan
  • Thirst by Kerry Hudson
  • All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld

2. Get up to date with ARCs that publishers have been kind enough to give me. Of course, this will involve reading. In particular –

3. Much of this reading will be done here:

Swimming pool

And as such I will execute the reading-swimming combination which is basically THE BEST DAY.

4. Movies. In particular –

  • This is Where I Leave You
  • Gone Girl
  • Before I Go to Sleep

And yes, I read the books first.

5. A day here. To get things in order before summer really hits. Probably should do this before no.3….

6. Eleventy billion dinner dates with friends.

7. Watch a bunch of trashy tv shows. Mostly Made in Chelsea. This will be justified because I’ll do a year’s worth of ironing at the same time.

8. Make some meals for my family that involve more than three ingredients.

9. Start planning our trip to Hawaii. I love holiday planning (even as much as the trip itself).

    • It’s been out in Australia for a while now and must admit that despite mixed reviews, I’m curious to see how Simsion will handle ‘part two’ of what I thought was a pretty perfect rom-com. I’ll be starting to read on Nov 4, if you want to join me!

  1. OOh so many fun things ahead of you. Not sure about your top 4 books to read though. Reckon you’re in for some disappointments there. JUST MY OPINION!

    • Really? Which one/s? It can’t be the Wyld… and I refuse to believe it’s the Hudson… which leaves Simsion and Flanagan. The Simsion can probably be read in a day (so no great loss if it’s terrible) and I feel I must read an Australian Man Booker winner… but then again, I don’t want to waste precious reading time…

      I should add that The Ark is also in my near future 😉
