    Top 5 Books To Read on Valentine’s Day

    Love is in the air, and whether you’re single or in a committed relationship, Valentine’s Day is coming for you. Personally, I have a happy hour planned with a few friends, and then, I’m going to cuddle up with a book and a box of chocolates. Being single doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the holiday of love! Get yourself a card, make a date with friends, or watch Friends on Netflix. Who cares? Try to do something fun just for the heck of it. I don’t read a lot of romance, but I like to dabble from time to time. I’ve compiled a list of the best books to read…

    January Reading Wrap Up 2019

    Some people are saying that January seemed to drag on and on, but I feel like it flew by. I started 2019 off strong by reading three books this month, but I also got about halfway into It read a little more in Februaryby Stephen King, which is over 1,000 pages long. I’m hoping to , but with three fewer days than most months, I know that’s probably going to be pretty hard. Let’s get started with my January reading wrap up! Image from Amazon 1. The Martian by Andy Weir I read this book super quickly for a book club earlier in the month, and I ended up loving it so…

    February TBR List 2019

    I started making these TBRs last year, and it’s really helped me stick to my reading goals. I am such a planner, and this is just another way for me to outline my life and reach my overarching goals. I rarely read everything on these TBRs, but I prefer to over-commit myself than under. I also always read something I didn’t anticipate at the beginning on the month, which is 100% okay. Like I said, this is an outline, not a final draft. Let’s get started with my February TBR list for 2019! Image from Amazon 1. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera In a world where you…

    2019 TBR List

    Time to set some reading intentions for 2019! I’ve already started this year off strong by finishing two books in the first 14 days (that’s a big deal for me believe it or not), and I’m hoping to keep the momentum going through the next 11 months. I’ve compiled this list of books that are high on my reading list, but I know I’ll probably add a ton more before the year is up. Keep in mind this list is highly aspirational. I’ve listed 24 books in this post, and it’s not likely I’ll actually read every book on this list, but I’m going to try. Since I’m already listing out so…

    Top 5 Books To Read To Get In The Christmas Spirit

    I have a bit of a confession to make. I think I’m a bit of a Scrooge! My friend asked me the other day what my favorite Christmas songs and movies were, and I didn’t really have an answer. I honestly dislike Christmas music a lot (it’s too repetitive for me), and I haven’t watched nearly enough cheesy Christmas movies in my lifetime. I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate the cheesy cheer and romantic plotlines, and I even have plans this weekend (with myself) to watch all the new Netflix originals including, but not limited to, The Princess Switch, but in the past, it’s never really been my…
