Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, her next question is:
7) A favourite YA book
I had to go to goodreads to find a list of “best YA books” to see if I had read any – and of course I have read quite a few! The Harry Potter series would rank up there as favorites, but also “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and Louise Rennison’s books about Georgia (“Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging” et al). When I was a YA, I read and re-read “A Wrinkle in Time” and as a grown adult with a YA of my own, I tried to read it and found it slightly disturbing. So interesting how your brain changes…
#7 on my list of things to do before 40 was to “experiment with recipes.” Wow. How vague is that? Since my daughter went to college in ’06 and the flood of ’07, I have cooked less and less. When I do I like to try something new. I set it as a goal in 2011 to cook weekly and have mostly failed at that as well.
What I am learning from reviewing my list of 40 things is that I need to be better at setting measurable and specific goals! Although, it still was fun to create a list of the way I wanted things to be.
Off to read!
