WHAT I'M READING
I finally finished JUST ONE YEAR, which I started in December. Since I finished in January, it'll be my first book of 2014. And it was good. You can see my brief goodreads review of it here: JUST ONE YEAR.
My current read is...
WHAT I'M WRITING
Nothing, at the moment.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
So many themes and quotes in Gayle Forman's JUST ONE YEAR. Whenever I need a good Contemporary jolt of FEELS, I can always count on Gayle Forman. Here's an example.
"But maybe we were both wrong, and both right. It’s not either or, not luck or love. Not fate or will. Maybe for double happiness, you need both."
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Not too much except for continued London-Paris vacation planning. But even that has hit a rough patch because EVERYONE at home IS SICK. Thankfully, I'm not sick (though I had a few close calls and felt a bit off), but I'm paranoid I will be! The Sister was the latest victim to this sudden flu, but she seems to be recovering. So just keep your fingers crossed she gets healthy and I stay healthy, so that our trip can still happen without health misery!
I also went darker with my most recent hair touch-up. Red hair!
I am ready for a vacation! It has been a stressful last half of January! OH and it's Lunar New Year at the end of this week! So yay for delicious foodage!

Happy New Year to you all and STAY HEALTHY (and warm)!!!
P.S. Come back Friday for the answers to Alz's Name That Book: Literal Titles Version questions!
P.P.S. The Sis and I welcome any and all recommendations on what we should do (or eat or shop) in London and/or Paris (though we'll only be in Paris for two days)! Also, tell us weak Californians how we should deal with the cold... other than layering everything we own on our bodies.
