Happy New Year! I’m keeping this post short and sweet with a full round-up of all the books I read in 2018. Let’s get started!
2018 is coming to a close, and I’d love to say I accomplished everything on my to-do list, but that never happens does it? I shared my 2018 resolutions this time last year, and I’d like to give an update on how I accomplished those goals throughout the year. Let’s get started!
Another year has come and gone, just like that. While I still haven’t hit my goal of reading 50 books in a year, I definitely feel like 2019 is my year. I’ve read, and finished, 47 books by the time this post is going live, so I still had quite a few books to wade through to find my favorites. I’ve come up with my top 10 books read in 2018. Let’s get started!
Merry Christmas! I want to keep this post short and sweet, but I wanted to send a Merry Christmas to all my readers that celebrate this happy holiday. This year has been a little different for my family, but despite everything life is throwing at us right now, we have all come together to be stronger than ever. I am so thankful this year for the support of my loved ones, whether by blood or by choice, and I couldn’t think of better people to spend this holiday season with.
I’ve definitely jumped the gun on the new year, but I’m so excited for 2019. I couldn’t wait to share the book releases I’m looking forward to in the next 12 months! Obviously, there are so many books coming out in the new year that seem wonderful and captivating, but I’ve narrowed it down to the top ten 2019 book releases that I’m looking forward to. Let’s get started!
This year, as I’m trying to focus on quality in my own life, I’m trying to focus on quality in the gifts I give for Christmas. In past years, I would tend to over buy on Christmas wanting someone to know how much I loved them through the quantity of gifts I gave them. This year, I want to get someone one thing, but something that really means something to them. Something that shows how much I thought about the gift and how much I care about them. It’s been hard to reign myself in when it comes to a few people, but I’m sticking to one truly thoughtful gift…
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…
Christmas is just around the corner (Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate!), and my favorite gift to give is, of course, books. There are a myriad of reasons as to why I love giving books to my friends and family: 1) It’s easy. 2) There’s something for everyone. 3) I get to share my passion with others. 4) Books. Do I need any other reasons? I’m not sure exactly what I’m getting everyone on my list this year, but I’m sure a few books will be thrown in to the mix. This week, I’ve cultivated a list of the top books to give as Christmas presents. Let’s get started!
It’s official. I’m 24. Does this mean I can start calling myself old now and it’s acceptable? No? Okay. Jokes aside, I’m actually really excited for what this year brings! I know 24 is kind of a throw away year (as was 23), but that doesn’t mean I can’t make it a great year for myself. I feel like we always wait for big moments (whether that means a new birthday, a new start to the calendar year, or the new start to a week) to make the changes we want to see in our lives, but I’m not waiting any longer. 24 is the year I make things happen,…
I have so much in my life to be thankful for, so I figured I would continue the trend of sharing what I’m thankful for into this week. I had a lovely Thanksgiving last week with friends and family, and I’m still working my way through leftovers as I write this post. Is there anything better than Thanksgiving leftovers? I don’t think so. I have so many books to be thankful for because of what they taught me about the world and about myself, but I narrowed this weeks post down to the top 5 books I’m thankful for. Let’s get started!
