Musings | A Warm Welcome to Summer

Is it just me or did May go by ridiculously fast?  School is out for the summer here in the States, and it is so nice to be wearing capris and sandals again!  

      There are so many great things about summer, don't you agree?  I have a few goals in mind to accomplish before August rolls around.  For one, I'd like to read more and post more often.  (I should be able to with a bit more time on my hands, though even summer gets busy.)  I have a couple of tags waiting to be filled out for posting and a few other ideas for some fun summery posts. 

     I'd like to get a job and start making money to put toward college, etc. and also fill out my college application before the fall.  It's all coming up so quickly!

MovieCritic has tagged me with the Book Tag, and I haven't done a tag in a while so this should be fun. :-)  Thank you, MovieCritic.  Now, onto the questions...

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

     Not sure which one, but I have had my American Girl books longer than all of the others currently on my shelf.

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you'll read next?

     I've been reading more than one book at a time for a while.  Currently, reading The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson, since I just finished The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest.  Also, reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.  I would like to read Hinds Feet On High Places by Hannah Hurnard and Bleak House by Charles Dickens next.

3. What book did everyone like but you hated?

     I didn't necessarily hate it, but The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak.  I heard so much about how good it was from more than one person, but it just wasn't for me.

4. What book do you keep telling …
