I did this last year and had a lot of fun with it, so let’s try it again!
Most Entertaining Book: The Hunger Games – If you haven’t read this one, I highly recommend it! I seriously couldn’t put it down. The next two were also good, but nothing beat the first one. I can’t wait for the movie!
Most Inspiring Book: Kisses from Katie – I wrote about this book here. It was a total game changer for me.
Best Adventure Book: The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition – Crazy true story. I wrote about it here.
Favorite Movie: It’s Kind of a Funny Story – Once again, I’m a sucker for a downer movie. But this one was also very inspiring. It’s very real, very raw, and has enough humor in it to make it manageable. I loved it. It didn’t make it into many theaters, but I still think it’s worth a watch.
Favorite Movie That Wasn’t A Downer: Footloose – I loved this movie. It was so much fun to watch and inspired me to buy cowboy boots. I would love to say it inspired me to dance, but those of you that know me well know that dancing is not my best skill.
Favorite Album: Owl City “All Things Bright and Beautiful” – This is an all around great album. I don’t skip any songs and I just love it. I wrote about it here. I do have to add some honorable mentions here though:
- Matt Wertz- Weights and Wings
- Needtobreathe- The Reckoning
- Ben Rector- Something Like This
Favorite TV Show: Once Upon A Time – It’s a super weird show, but I really really like it!
Favorite Concert: Taylor Swift Speak Now Tour – This was a brilliant show. It was like a theatrical performance and I didn’t even consider leaving early. That is really big for me considering I always leave early due to my aversion to crowds and the need to beat the traffic. I saw this show twice and didn’t leave early either time!
Favorite New Tradition: Girls Movie Nights – We do this once a month at my apartment. We have dinner and watch a movie and I just really love it and those friends!
Favorite New Card Game: Russian Bank – My aunt taught me this game this summer and it’s a blast. But it has a lot of rules, so if you don’t play it enough you forget how to play. I got a refresher this week though, so I need to teach someone here how to play it before I forget!
