Yes I am still reading. I know I haven’t written a review since Tinkers, but since then I have read: “The Memory Keeper’s Daughter” by Kim Edwards; “Bottom of the 33rd“ by Dan Barry; “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver; and “Citizens of London” by Lynne Olson. I set a goal to read 90 books this year, I have 11 books to go so I am pushing myself to finish and writing reviews has fallen by the wayside.
One of two things will happen. I will finish 90 books and in a furious fit of writing I will write reviews for 15 books in a weekend. I will get the 11 books read by December 31st and consider it a job well done and not bother with reviews. I will not meet my goal of 90 books, say oh well, and start reading and reviewing anew with the new year.
Whatever happens, for you to find out you’ll just to come back. Suspense! I love it.
I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
