We all need laughs to start 2014

Can you freaking believe it? It is nearly 2014.

I know that this has been a, to put it nicely, CHALLENGING year for many of us. We are ready to let go of the old, and get the hell going with the new. I cant agree more my dear Geeks. If 2013 was great or not so great, I think the new year shouldn't be about resolutions, or about weight loss or how you will make yourself somehow better. The new year should be started off with some JOY. We need that positive "We-can-laugh-and-get-on-with-it" energy to start of the year in the direction we want it to go, which is, no matter the goal, firmly in the HAPPINESS zone.

So this month, I am taking over GGBC with my own picks for reading joy. (It's my birthday month and we can read what we want to.)

You can read all 3 of these fantastic blues imploding titles, or pick one or two that speak to you...that will fill your joy balloon to damn near bursting.

Option 1:

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
If you love her web comics, this will have you rolling on the 
floor, needing Depends, and feeling like you are reading
about yourself sometimes.

Option 2:
Moms Who Drink and Swear by Nicole Knepper
If you are a parent you will love this, and if you're not, you will still
see yourself and need to break out those Depends again.

Option 3:
Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
The Bloggess is bringing the huge laughter and touching feels in this
one, and you are going to feel like you're reading about a dear friend. Bliss.

So there you have it kids, my picks to put some joy in your reading and start our 2014 off the way it should be, laughing so hard you wee a bit, and remembering that we all are just doing our best to live our little, wondrous lives...and we all need a lot of laughter to make it through and tie us all together.

Happy reading my dear Geeks, I hope this year kicks all other year's ass on the happy meter.

(The read begins January 1st and we'll chat about it the last Saturday of the month. Check out my twitter @NikkiSticks for updates, and Twitter links for the authors.)
