Friday Fun! (Furniture, Anne Rice, TBR Challenge)

Hello my lovely readers!  My, what a busy month this has been so far, and it’s only going to get busier!

My dad got me a mini kitchen island type piece of furniture to add much-needed cabinet and counter-top space to my very much utilized Boston kitchen!  It arrived in a 76 pound box that I have yet to open.  One of my Saturday goals is to assemble the thing.  I’ve already warned my neighbor that there may be yelling and throwing of things involved. 😉

If you follow me on twitter, then you know that last night I got a package from Random House containing an ARC of Anne Rice’s new novel. SQUEEEE  It’s coming out in February, and I’m honored that they consider me worthy of an ARC by such an awesome writer.  BTDUBS you guys, it’s totally a werewolf book.  Yup. Rice is taking on the werewolves now.  🙂

Amy and I have agreed to a one-on-one challenge starting January 1st regarding our TBR piles.  She’ll be tackling her 45 (right, Amy?) pre-2009 acquisitions, whereas I will be tackling my 44 pre-2011 acquisitions.  Whoever finishes first wins a kindle book courtesy of the other.  I’m already sitting staring at my pre-2011 acquisitions plotting at night.  However, I’ll be good and not start til January!  Partially because I’m currently doing my own personal challenge of catching up with the ARCs I accepted this year……

Tonight I’m going to a pub in a cute neighborhood of Boston with my friend Kat to listen to live music.  (*cough* live metal music *cough*).  It’s going to be a great Friday evening!

Happy weekends all!

      This is the part where I explain this is a fair contest because Amy reads faster than me….. *blushing*

        Well technically it is unfair for you cuz I read faster. BUT I’m TERRIBLE at sticking to lists sooo…. 🙂

      Thanks, Kinna!! Haha, I think one of the most interesting things will be seeing what books the old Amy and old Amanda bought back in the day. 😉
