What I Read: January ’14

I did so much better this month! I’m really trying to work on turning off Netflix at 10 and climbing into bed and reading for half an hour. Well, I still managed to watch loads of movies this month too. I’m starting to keep a list of these as well, mostly out of curiosity on my part ๐Ÿ™‚

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling: This was the first of the series where I was really griped by the plot and I thought it was my favorite, until I started reading Goblet of Fire, that is. Again, this is part of my 30×30 project.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: Definitely my favorite so far ๐Ÿ˜‰ Check back next month to see if that manages to hold up.

Women Food and God, An unexpected path to almost everything by Geneen Roth: This was something I saw Jess Lively recommend so I added it to my library request list. Roth argues that by challenging our deeply held beliefs about ourselves and our worth, we will be able to ‘return to our bodies’ and establish a healthy relationship with food and eating. I found her voice very encouraging but I have to admit, some of her recommendations have been hard to implement.

Movies I watched in January: The Fruit Hunters, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight, Amelia, The Square, Pet Sematary, I Give it a Year, Holes, Goats, Spaceballs, Drinking Buddies and Ready to Fly.

Now, I know this isn’t a book but I have to call out the Before series, directed by Richard Linklater, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight this month and they really lived up to the hype. If you haven’t checked out The Square yet, it’s really a must watch documentary about the Egyptian revolution, democracy and social movements.
