I have a shameful confession: I haven't read a classic book since my GCSEs. *And whispers* I've never read a Jane Austen novel. So to ease me into my Bucket List gently, I'm going to read a classic this week. But what should I choose?
Emily Brontë - Wuthering Heights
Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
When was the last time you ticked anything off your Bucket List? I'm scratching my head, trying to think when I last did, and I'm stumped. My Bucket List used to contain things like doing the Inca trail in Peru, trekking to Everest Base Camp and writing a novel, all things I've ticked off. But lately thanks to my little children I'm guilty of just surviving the day and not really putting myself out of my comfort zone. Which is a shame as I feel like my life is poorer for it.
So in advance of the publication of my new novel, The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart, I'm going to be doing a mini bucket list. As much is I'd love it to be full of globetrotting, adrenaline fuelled escalades, with a four month old baby and a toddler in tow, I've had to scale back the ambitions. Think more reading a classic book, hiking up hills and snow shoe walking.
And I need your help! I want people to get involved and help me firm up my bucket list. Each Friday I'll do a twitter poll, with two bucket list suggestions for the week ahead. I'm hoping that getting people to help me choose what to do will spur me onto do it. I'll then blog here about it!
So do look out for my Friday poll, and help me on my bucket list journey!
You can read more about The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart it's out on 10th March,here.
