Sunday Synopsis: January 3, 2010

I'M BACK!!!!

Wow! It has sure been a while since I did my last Sunday Synopsis, hasn't it?!? I've had some time to re-evaluate, spend some time with my family, get organized, and finally get many boxes unpacked around the house. My projects have been coming along nicely. I've still got some work to do on all of them, but it is so nice to finally see the top of my desk!

Now, it's time to get back to it . . . back to blogging, reviewing, talking books, and so much more! I am so excited for 2010. I can't wait to start (and continue) with challenges. I am looking forward to reading the many books on my TBR pile that I have been wanting to read . . . and many for years!! It's going to be a great year!

Well, that's enough chit-chat! It's been a while and I'm still extremely behind from the hectic 2009. The rest of my synopsis is going to be long, but we are going to watch it dwindle . . . well, the reviews to come at least . . . over the next few weeks! I'm looking forward to it!

I'm going to be making a list (a very long list) of all that I need and want to do with my blog. I'm hoping to at least get a few things marked off of this list during the set time Natasha has set. I will be sharing more details in the next couple of days on my plans.


What are you most looking forward to in 2010?


  1. I only have one thing to say. And that's I'm secretly thrilled that you have that many reviews to write because it makes me feel SO much better about my equally long list of reviews!

  2. It's so good to know that I am not alone!! Hopefully, this LONG list will not be there for too much longer!
