Summer Bucket List

I have so many unfinished projects, plans and ambitions right now it seems unwise to add anything too big to the heap. But I am also the kind of person who operates well with a list or goal. So instead of any major life bucket list I thought I'd start with sort of a summer book bucket list. I'm hoping that this little bit of pressure will inspire me to slow the construction on my Tiny Tower and get busy doing a few more productive pursuits. 

1. Something Respectable - The Great Gatsby. I'm pretty sure this was required reading somewhere in my high school career, but the fact is I don't remember it. I'm inclined to think it was probably another project I totally flaked on. *cringing* Anyway, I'd like to make up for that over sight now, especially with the movie on the way.

2. Part II - I'd like to follow up with the sequels to Divergent and Across the Universe. And in August, the follow ups to I Am Number Four and Ashes drop. Summer's all about the guilty pleasure, right?

3. Something Borrowed - The exact title is yet to be determined but I have a stack of books from Crystal, that she probably devoured in a week, gathering dust. I'd like to be able to return at least one of them during the next three months.

On a non-book related Summer Bucket list....

I want to not finish last on my first half marathon. (Who am I kidding, I just want to finish.)

Anyone else want to throw out a Summer Bucket List? I dare you.....
