The other day I ordered a bunch of books from Amazon. I figure I have been working a lot of overtime, I have been compiling a list of books I want to actually purchase a hard copy of, rather than just on my Kindle - I just decided to go ahead and treat myself!
One of the books on the list was Thirty Days to Thirty by Courtney Psak. I read about this book on Biana's blog. Considering I am turning 30 next year, I thought it was very fitting. The premise of the story is that a girl is turning 30 in just over a month and in one day her whole world falls apart. She realizes that not only is she not becoming a partner in her firm like she had been hoping for, she is being let go all together AND her boyfriend of 6 years is cheating on her...with his secretary. Talk about double whammy. She moves back home, finds a list that she wrote when she was 18 of 30 things she wanted to do before she was 30, and proceeds to try to accomplish them in the 30 days she has left before her birthday.
I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a good story and had a happy ending, which is my favorite. It's a book about finding yourself, but it doesn't get too deep, which I think is a good thing in this case since I think it is supposed to be more of a fun read. If I had to say anything bad about this book, it would be that it seems extremely unrealistic to me. But, I feel like that is why you read these types of books - a little escape from reality.
Reading Thirty Days to Thirty has made me think about making a 30 before 30 list for myself. I am not quite set on doing it, but still something I am mulling over. If I do, I will make sure to share.
What about you? Do you have any type of bucket list?
