Self Fulfilling Prophecy

The holidays are upon us, and that means one thing - Wendy gets to travel home to Michigan. This year, besides the normal good cheer, good food, and gift exchanging, my younger sister is getting married. She's been with The Guy for 10 years, so it's not too much of shock.

But what does this really mean? Well with a married older sister, with kids even, and a soon to be married younger sister that means - yes it's happened - I'm now officially The Spinster Sister!

I'm so proud. I knew this moment would come. I just had to work hard, believe in myself and of course, become a librarian. Next step, adopting at least 10 cats so I can work on becoming The Crazy Cat Lady.

This is of course all tongue in cheek. The Boyfriend and I have been together for almost 9 years, we just aren't married. Frankly, I'm thinking the only reason to get married is the fabulous dress you get to wear then shove in the attic - am I wrong here?

So yeah, it's great that The Lil' Sis is getting hitched and all - but the most important aspect of this trip has yet to be decided - What Books Am I Taking With Me? Yes, I leave on the 20th, and I still don't know what books I'm taking. Shameful isn't it?

At this point I'm leaning towards a lot of historicals because I haven't read one in what seems like forever. But I also have several contemporary romances lying around. So I'm thinking it might be for the best if I took a mix, and my guilty conscience says that I should take books I've had in the TBR for years (surprisingly, most of them).

So I thought it might be fun for me to post a list of "possible" reads for me to take on my trip, then you all could vote. It would also take the decision out of my hands and if I end up hating a book I have someone else to blame! How's that for logic?

So coming soon, a list of Airplane Books. Stay tuned.
