Hey bookworms! I have finished a few books this week, and not all of them were ones I loved, and part of me wanted to DNF them. So, why didn’t I? Good question, in our reading community, we all often … Continue reading
Hey bookworms I know I am about a month late for goals, but I guess you can say I am taking the time to really think about them. I don’t want to put any pressure on life goals this year, just want to put positive energy and thoughts out there and chase. Talking always at least holds me accountable (well at least that I have it in print)
I actually need a distraction today as the wind is wailing and my bones are aching. So I am gonna sit here talk to you, and get my mind off of everything, get comfy and let’s chat.
2020 Book Goals
1. Read More Print/Ebooks
Now this is not a crack against my audio books at all because I love them and they are my saviors on commutes, but I need to pull myself back into the written. I want to write down quotes, inspire myself to write them down, and maybe write my own.
2. Read More Nonfiction/Memoirs
I read one this year and I like hearing people’s voices in a whole new way and relating to things that actually happened. They are more easy to make you laugh out loud because you feel like you’re talking to a friend. A lot of time they make you feel less alone, plus the good ones have other books recommended in them.
3. Read More Graphic Novels/Comics/Manga
I feel like I didn’t read that many last year and I really want to get lost in images, find an art style I love. These are the type of things I missed getting hooked on and just binging the heck out of them.
4. Read More Books from an Animals Perspective
These were the books I enjoyed most over the last few years. I love the honesty of their perspectives and I hope I can find more of them, if anybody knows more please drop them in the comments.
5. More Magical Realism
This is one of my FAVORITE genres EVER! I love the books that make me question what is true reality, or believing that magic can happen in every day life. I need more of these wonders in my life, whether it be YA or adult fiction.
6. Historical Fiction
I am so very happy that I have fallen back in love with this genre. The few books I have read this year have taught me about wars or eras I didn’t know/ remember much about. I hope I even find different periods I didn’t even pick up.
7. Read Books Set in Somewhere other than the US
There is a big wide world out there and even more to explore, and while I can’t afford to fly everywhere I wanna go, the library will let me travel for free.
9. Read More Books in Letter Format
I find books in that format are the most authentic format, as it allows character to be the most raw. This is where I find most authors thrive at making you feel the feels.
10. Read More Adaptations
I know 20%-25% of what I read last year I read were adaptations, but I want to read more. Get to know deeper characters or a story line more. I have a few more on my goodreads TBR list that I want to see if the library has.
11. Read More Books of the Books I Already Own
I know this is probably on a lot of people’s goals this year, but I want to read more of what covers my shelves. I also want to try and get braver in my review writing in both books and movies.
12. Read 85+ books
Now I am probably going to increase how much I am reading later on in the year, since I don’t know where the year will take me. I am hoping I can read at least 85 as that’s what I put on Goodreads. My goal and longing is more than 100 books! We’ll see what I get up to though.
Well that’s all for now bookworms, what are your goals? Please share them or any recommendations in the comments below. I hope you have a good reading year, good books to keep you company, and are stay warm! Happy Reading!
Hey bookworms! I hope you’re enjoying the last day of 2019! The end of an era! Does anyone else feel old yet? This year was a rollercoaster, so I am glad to say goodbye to it. As rough as this year was I did have some great books out of 104 (105 if I can finish this last one tonight), to get me through it, let’s get started! These will be in the order they were read in. Time to start this top 10 Tuesday post that is now being hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
My Favorite Reads of 2019
1. Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson
I was obviously trying to fill my Anne with an E craving! I mean come on Netflix stop taunting me with the coming soon stuff… Anywho what I loved is seeing is what shaped Anne and her younger years that the show glimpse at that the books didn’t cover. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars that brought me a little closer to Anne.
2. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
I will make it no secret that I didn’t like Hemmingway as a person, which you find out by reading his memoir A Moveable Feast, but the lives of his wives and their relationships with him on the other hand. It gives you an insight that not most would have. Learning about Hadley through Paula McLain’s writing kept me so captivated and it was another 4 stars.
3. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
I watched the movie on Netflix, and had to read the book. It led me back to my love for historical fiction and made me realize I also love books in letter format. I need to find more written the same format. I fell in love with each character and this made it my first 5 star read of the year.
4. One Day in December by Josie Silver
It filled my One Day craving in every way, but with a happier, all be it more dragged out ending. I adored the pop culture references but the David Tennant reference at the end earned it the 5th star plus the solid female friendship helped. More books need them 😊
5. These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
This book was definitely a hidden gem of the year. First and foremost let me say I love the queerness of this book. The bi rep made me want to cry I relate to Morgan, about being tempted to defend her sexuality.
This book definitely kept me on edge with suspense. the only thing that bothered me is how Hannah kept repeatedly referred to Veronica as her ex. It was understandable but how constant it was got in my nerves. Definitely recommend this book though! I can’t wait for book two.
6. The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa
The book I still cannot stop talking about and recommending to people this year. Some of the translations didn’t go over well, but I also found out this year that I love books from the animal’s perspective, they are more pure. How animals claim us more than we claim them. It tore apart my feels in the best way. I need to own this book now💜😊 Another 5 star read of the year!
7. Keeping Lucy by T. Greenwood
Another historical fiction for the year and one that really made me think. Plus I love Therese Plummer as a audio book narrator. I really liked this book as it constantly made me itch to get back to it. It made me grateful I was born in the era I was because people with CP were often institutionalized as well. If you want a book to let you learned how society has grown at least a little bit, I definitely recommend this one. It was a 4 out of 5 stars.
8.Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Another 5 star of this year! I adored it! This was such an amazing book! I had to look up multiple times if this was really a fictional novel or non-fiction. The style of it being written in interviews with the band really sucks you in. The author’s notes in the beginning and end made you forget it was all a story. It connected you in a way, I haven’t felt connected in a long time, it was like I could run into these people strolling down the streets of LA. It showed truly flawed and good characters. My favorite quote which I’m probably butchering is, “Love doesn’t have to be perfect to be strong”. I sincerely hope Taylor Jenkins Reid writes a lot more books in this style!
9. The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde
I really adored the bi rep in this book. Although I kinda hated that her parents were horrible but they do exist. I loved Emi taking ownership of her actions . The way to win my heart is to write great quotes about kisses or write good kisses and this is what won it 5 stars. Bi rep is important to me this year with the everything going on I needing more of it.
10. Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by by Roselle Lim
If you love Magical realism you need to pick up this book. It is a great book if you’re finishing college and feeling a little lost in life. The magical realism, how it handled mental, and family history. The generational aspects were also some of my favorite things. I need a copy of it and it was my last 5 Star book of the year.
Well bookworms, that’s all for 2019 and this post, as I have to adult and work tomorrow, but I will see you in the New Year! You’ll see me back in the community as I will try my best. Have you read any of these? What were your favorites of the year? Leave me a link below, I want to know what kept you sane this year. I will be including the link to my year in review, on Goodreads because I think the feature is cool and you can link your too in the comments. Happy Reading, and we’ll talk soon!
Hey Bookworms! Long time, no talk! I know I am the worst blogger ever, and some of you probably are wondering, why I still try? Or maybe it’s just me??? I have said this a zillion times over, but I … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I hope you’re having a good and rested Memorial Day Weekend. I know I’ve been AWOL but I am trying to get better at this. I am getting glasses soon, so it may get easier to post more … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I know I haven’t posted in a bit, but it’s been a bit busy lately. I know I wanted to try and do month, but winter was busy for me with my Birthday trip and all the overtime it took to save. But, anywho, you’re here for the books not to hear me whine, so let’s get started!
So for those of you who have seen my signature, will know I had to pick up this sequel due to the cover. I mean can you blame me. I wish I could say I felt the same for the story that I did the cover. Although I love the idea of this series because it sings to my X-Men loving heart. It is like a retelling of it in a way at least to my mind. Adelina reminds me of a friend that really hurt me last year, and I can’t help but want this character to be redeemed. Magiano was the one that kept me reading. I gave the book a 2.8 out of 5 stars.
2. Dumplin’ By Julie Murphy
I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I related to the mother-daughter relationship. In the way the mother assumes she is helpin g the daughter with her opinions that maybe ended a bit blunt and sometimes hurtful without meaning to. The female friendships made me so happy because I feel so many stories are lacking friendships lately. Friendships are starting to become minor points in stories and I don’t want to think they are becoming minor points life as well.
3. Nothing by Annie Barrow
I gave this a 2.8 stars although it was a cute coming of age of age it really irked me the names these girls called each other. It wasn’t okay.
4. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
I gave this one 3.3 stars. I loved the idea of the characters having personalities outside of the ones that were written for them in their story. The romance felt a bit lacking for me, but the story stuff rang true to me. Especially the part where the author said she heard the character’s voices in her head. As a writer myself that is my favorite sound and I miss that the most.
6. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
4 stars! This book reminded me of everything about Dessen’s writing that made me feel less alone when I was younger. It reminded me that I wasn’t alone with the problems I faced. That other people faced them too. This book was like comfort food in her writing style if that makes sense.
6. Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray
This book got 4 stars from me only because of that cliff hanger! I was ready for this series to be over, but I do how much that I greatly care for these characters so I’m not too angry about getting to see more of their stories.
7. Birthmarked by Caragh M. O’Brien
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. For a dystopian book I still don’t know what to think of it but it had some really good action parts that kept my attention.
1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
3 stars I like the writing process and Cath’s professor’s advice, but I feel this would’ve made more of an impact on me if I read this 4-5 years ago. It did make me miss writing fanfiction and just writing in general. Maybe one day I will feel the pull again.
2. Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars there was a bit of lag in some parts, but this book reminded me why historical fiction and royalty pulled me in when I was younger. I am hoping this means it has reignited my craving.
3. Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
This book was a 4 out of 5 stars for me it was really good to hear about mental health especially a disorder you don’t hear much about. This story really put you in the main character’s head and shoes. It made you experience her feelings and struggles in such a vivid way.
4. Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire
This shows how horrible of a bookworm I am. I loved the first book and didn’t even know that the next two books were out. I loved learning about the twins and the LGBTQ elements in these books and the backstory and magical realism mixed with the fantasy is my favorite thing ever. It was an amazingly good short devour and I gave this a 4 out of 5 stars and now I need to own these books!
5. Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire
After finishing the last book and knowing the third was already out. I had to buy the third audio book for myself and it did not disappoint. The world building is AMAZING! 5 out of 5 stars!
6. Marked by PC and Kristin Cast
4 out of 5 stars because sometimes a reread is all the comfort and happiness you need in the world.
7. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars. It would have been 5 out of 5 but there were some parts that lost my attention due to lag, but it has all the things to keep me picking up a book. I can’t wait to see what happens at the end.
8. Uglies by Scott Westerfield
I have this a 3 out of 5 stars. I think I would’ve enjoyed this more in my teens when I was into dystopian but I only read it on a rare occasions now. It was an interesting twist on conformity though.
9. Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
I know I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary, but it’s not my favorite genre truly. I will admit it is easy to read though. For not loving Contemporary I found I love Sophie Kinsella. Her humor and her books always make me laugh. 3 out of 5 stars.
10. City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong
I started this book last December but didn’t get to finish it before my turn was up at the library. Let me tell you these plot twists definitely made it worth the wait! 5 out of 5 stars!
My favorite month of the whole year! My birthday month! These are the books that helped me get to and celebrate 26!
1. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
When I say I don’t like contemporary that of course excludes Historical Fiction. I know I am so odd, but historical fiction has always been one of my deepest loves for as long as I can remember. This book was such a great reminder of that. I gave this a 4 out of 5 stars.
2. Unbecoming by Jenny Downham
This was one of my random picks for the month and I pretty much went in blind because to be honest I think I skimmed the summary. This is a great example of the when going in blind works out great. The story telling and the three perspectives were great for world building and was enough to have flash backs. It was perfect to fill all my fictional cravings when I picked it up. 4 out of 5 stars.
3. NTR – Netsuzou Trap Vol. 1 by Naoko Kodama, Catherine Ross (Translator), Shannon Fay (Adaptation), CK Russell (Lettering)
This yuri was a little disappointing because it felt Hotaru was too forceful on Yuma. If she was just honest I feel this was honest, maybe even a bit more seductive this would’ve been so much better. I gave this one a 2 out of 5 stars. I might try and see if it’s available at the library instead of picking up and buying the next copy.
4. Citrus Vol 7 by Saburo Uta
Although Mei’s and Yuzu’s love did have a forcefulness in the beginning you could tell the underlying feelings were there. I fell behind on this series, but then I remembered it was becoming an anime! So I needed to devour what was out to hype myself up and I was disappointed by neither the adaption or this volume. I gave this one a 4 out of 5 stars.
5. Midnight Jewel by Richelle Mead
Although there was some parts of this book I didn’t like like pretty much retelling the first book… The romance in this one though was hot, and I like the couples with conflict. That argue that does not fall easy are my favorites. They are the more realistic to me and draw me in too easily. 4 out of 5 stars for just the romance alone! Don’t judge me she writes good friction and tension!
6. Bloom into You, Vol. 1 by Nakatani Nio
I loved the idea of this manga that love can grow. It doesn’t have to be hot it can be slow and patient. It was so sweet I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars.
7. Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
This was a 2.8 stars for me because how fickle Naomi became kinda irked me and ruined the good parts for me.
8. Far from the Tree by Robin Benway
The tagline got me guys! “For fans of This is Us” which is my mom and my favorite show and it was not a disappointment. The bond between the siblings was so sweet and true. It also hit on adoption which I feel isn’t a topic covered by many books. 4 out of 5 stars.
Well guys that what I read this winter! I am so sorry this took forever to post! I am trying to get better I promise. Have you read any of these? Feel free to let me know in the comments below because I really do miss you all. Have a wonderful week and most importantly Happy Reading!
Hey Bookworms! Sorry for being MIA after my streak of posting. It wasn’t by choice I had a schedule change at work that had me working 10 days in a row! I dunno how I am alive right now honestly … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! Lets keep my Resolutions on a roll by posting a Top Ten Tuesday post which I haven’t done in forever, but this one is more of a goals list, so I thought why not? For those of you … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I know this may be a little early to write this as at this moment it’s only the 10th of December, but that’s what scheduling posts are for right? And if my ideas change I can edit before this goes live. Once it goes live, I have to commit, right? Well at least try my best to. I really want to get back into the community and get the hand of scheduling posts again, so this will be good practice! Anywho before this intro gets too off track, or reveals the resolutions before I get a chance to jot them in some semblance of order, lets get started!
As you guys can tell, 2017 was a little hectic and I’ve been more than a little absent, and too be honest I miss the community and support I’ve had from you in my life’s many ups and downs, both on here and through twitter. I want to come back to the community who kept me going for so long. So here are my goals to bring me back to you!
1. Post at least 2-3 times a month!
I know at this moment it seems impossible, and I’d be okay and not guilt myself if I’d only post once.
2. Write 4 Book Reviews
I know I’ve said I’d write more reviews before, but I really want to not only to become more brave, but to turn my analytical, creative, and critical thinking (basically the English Major) part (s) of my brain back on. The monotony of work is starting to make me feel dull.
3. Scheduling is key!
I want to to utilize the scheduling tool on here to post more, to take some of the stress and confusion of what to post. I think it will also force me to write my ideas down and not give up on them so easily.
4. Comment on More Blogs
Being apart of the community again doesn’t mean just sharing my voice it also means hearing so many of your great voices and thoughts.
5. Share More of My Media Thoughts
This means more movie and show posts, maybe a game post here and there. I really want grow to be more diverse with my blog.
6. Do Some Kind of Wrap-Ups
I feel like wrap-ups are some of the most productive posts. It also allows you to take a look back on progress you made and what’s touched you most, because even stuff that doesn’t end up being your favorite still leaves a mark
1. Read 90 Books
I hit my goal of 80 and that’s a lot lower when I was in school. I’m trying to tell myself that is a decent amount and to be proud of myself. I feel 90 would be even better. I’ve already read more than I thought I could.
2. Read More Mysteries
I am slowly breaking out of my scaredy cat shell and reading more stuff I normally wouldn’t. I would love to see how far I could push myself before the fear kicks back in. Plus I have a curious mind and most of the time I catch the plot twist before it’s revealed. I want to see if a mystery can get me before I get it.
3. Read More Biographies/Memoirs
This is another genre I want to dip my toes in a little more. It’s nice to hear peoples vioces as they tell the story of their lives
4. Do a Reading Challenge or at least attempt one
Honestly a few of these are way too out of my comfort zone to want to attempt but it will be fun to do some of these
5. Participate in a Readathon
This is another part of rejoining the community through social media. To get to know all you guys again. I would love to do RYBSAT or Dewey’s but we’ll see what happens.
6. Read 10 Paper Copies and 10 E-Books
I don’t know if you’re aware but my main source of reading this year has been audiobooks and I’ve missed other sources and writing notes to myself, tabbing good parts, etc.
7. Read a New Release
If I was more confident I’d put 3 but I’m so bad at keeping track of release dates, so if I get to the one I have my eye on I’ll be proud of myself.
8. Read a Book by an Author I’ve Never Read Before
Whether it’s a new author or just someone I’ve had my eye in. I want to get to know someone new.
9. Read a Classic
I feel like a bad english Major student for not reading more of these. I really want to pick up Jane Eyre, or more Dickens. We’ll see if this happens =P
10. Finish a Series
What series I have no clue, but I’d like to finish one. See characters grow from the beginning to end.
11. Knock 10 Books off my TBR
Honestly my TBR is getting a little intense, but I know myself and I know I’m not going to stop buying anytime soon. I know I don’t buy as frequently as I once did, but if I could knock some books off the ones I own when I treat myself I won’t be as bad. That and I still have a pile of free stuff from RT 16 that are calling my name
1. Write Weekly
Whether it’s a poem, quote, or a scene I want to set up a time at least once a week for me to get back into my calling
2. Use My Writing Prompt books
I bought 2 this year and I haven’t touched them. I don’t know if I want to write in them or use a separate notebook but I don’t want to let them go to waste!
4. Read a Book on Writing
I want my creativity to grow again and I think I need some help. I am okay with that as I can’t take classes at the moment
5. Watch TedxTalks on Writing
This will give me the feel of a class and even allow me to take notes. Plus it’d keep my attention and will allow me to pick multiple brains a day.
1. Eat out only once a week
I know this will be my hardest goal, but I do want to do it. I want to save more money and this is a small way to do it
2. Put Money in my Savings at Least once a month
I want to start rebuilding my nest egg again which will not only allow me to move, but allow me to travel as well.
3. Find and Get a New Job
Honestly I need more of a challenge in life and a job where I feel I can grow. As much as I lobe my coworkers I feel it’s time to leave my first job and leave my mark on a new one
4. Travel to 3 Places
I was able to acheive this goal this year and it was one of the few things that helped keep me sane
5. Exercise 3 times a week
To be honest, I fell off this wagon a few times this year, but I want to keep it this year
6. Look into what it will take to move to Vancouver,Canada
I fell back in love this year and yes it’s scary, but it wasn’t just with a great guy, it was with a great city. I fell in love with a city. I felt my creativity want to sing again. Yes, LDR’s are hard. Second chances are risky, and even riskier is moving out of state, but I feel I can’t live my life wondering. So I am going to take the steps to get me closer to this plunge.
7. Audit a Class
Hopefully a new job will give me more time and energy to pursue this and I think I want to dive back into getting an AA in French, Business, or Hospitality. All 3 could help me towards a day job I could love. I miss school, and I honestly would adore having multiple degrees.
8. Look into Therapy
Although my depression hasn’t hit it can and that scares me. I do miss having a neutral party to speak to. I miss not feeling judged.
9. Not Feel Guilty about Treating Myself
I work hard and deal with a lot of stress and don’t want to feel bad for buying anything from a plane ticket to a new game or outfit. I’m not talking about a shopping spree just a small item every month or so.
10. Keep Positive
There is a lot going on in my family life and although it seems like the hardest thing to do. I don’t want to let it break me. I want to stay positive and bring it to the others in my life.
Well bookworms these are all the resolutions I have. They may be a lot, but it’s always good to aim high and feel proud of whatever I do accomplish. Do you have any resolutions? Do you think I’m crazy for having this many? Do you have any tips on how to accomplish them. Did you do a post on your resolutions or goals? Let me know in the comments below with links and help me start my goals off right. And as always happy reading and hope you all are having a good week!
Hey bookworms! I know I say this every time, but I am trying to get better at being a constant or at least regular at this.
I hope your morning/day/ evening is going well depending where ever you are. It is currently Monday morning here AKA my Sunday. I was going to wait till later to write with my boyfriend to wake up to have a writing date (just sitting with each other on Skype or Facebook messenger for an hour and writing whatever we want), but I woke up to hear about the Shooting in Las Vegas (where I live but a 20ish mins away) on the Strip it left me a little shaken, so positive thoughts to everyone in my city. I don’t want this blog to end up too sad, but if you guys can all send positive thoughts to the ones affected that’d be great.
Anywho life has been on a good patch lately, me and my boyfriend have found our way back to each other, I’ve been to Vancouver twice this year, recently for his Birthday in September and I swear it’s not just him but every time I hit the tarmac and am officially in Canada it makes me feel at home. I love Vancouver and how I look at nearly everything and to me it feels like a story waiting to be written. Especially since it’s the kind of place where if you wanted to get away for a day or two, hop on the ferry and your there in 2 hours. Honestly it made me want to pick up historical fiction being in Victoria getting lost in the awe when we went to Craigdurroch Castle. The history and seeing the way that this building change to fit the every need that was needed from it. How can you not want to explore and adventure out in the world? I want to live in Vancouver so bad I can practically taste it. So that’s my goal in the next 2 years of my life, but then part of me starts to wonder if 25 is starting to late in life to do this? I dunno I hope not, so what I’m asking you all in the way of advice. Have any of you moved to Canada from the states or even from a different country than where you’re originally from? How did you go about doing it? I know it’s possibly gonna be a lot of paperwork and a lot of work it’s not something I’m scared of.
Also another question that I am concerned about is the use of Transit because being in my chair for 3 days was not easy on my back and hips. Here I use Paratransit a system for those with disabilities where the bus picks you up and drops you off where you need to be. It is a ride share system, so rides can tend to get on the lengthy at times, but it is my independence even if it can have it’s drawbacks, so for my Canadian readers (which hopefully I have) do you guys have a similar system that I can look into?
An update on my writing and reading life as well. I need to stop making excuses and sit down and just do it. Writing and reading used to be my escape from stress, life, it was protection from myself or whatever was currently getting at me. I’ve decided to start carrying a notebook with me and setting down an hour to write a week. No matter what it is blogging, poetry, quotes, or even my current WIP. It makes me sad I haven’t touched it in almost a year. I want my writing to leave a mark, let others know they don’t have to face it alone, or when they have to there is always a safer place to be where you can conquer other dangers along side others. Writing is coping it is letting my dark know that I am stronger than it is, or if it feels stronger I can give it an outlet. I hope I can stick to this new commitment. I feel it will help push me forward again see more of what I can do with the world.
Now that the life stuff is out of the way if you are still with me. Here is what has been keeping my literary world alive lately:
1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I am really loving this book and hoping I can finish it before it’s due back on Overdrive. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors for a reason his way of writing and his use of details, it just sucks you in.
2. A Dog’s Journey by W.B. Cameron
I bought this for the ferry ride for the trip to Victoria and it was perfect to keep our attention for 2 hours. It had me giggling and smiling at antics and it is just a light book that is something you can go to for ease.
3. Moon Chosen by PC Cast
Yes I am still reading this chunky thing and lets hope I can get it done before the end of the year. It is good but I’ve been quite the slow reader lately and although it makes me sad a bit, but I am try not to be hard on myself about it.
Well bookworms that’s it for now and I have finished this post now with way too many distractions as it is almost 2:30 PM. I am gonna go get dressed and go grocery shopping and face the fact that tomorrow is another work day. I hope it is an easy, quick, and as stress free for all of us as possible. I will try and get my summer wrapup done soon, so you can see what I’ve been doing besides work and sleep. I am still kinda alive.
If you want to see what few pictures I was able to get in Canada follow my Instagram and see some of my adventure. I promise when I get my new phone hopefully next weekend, I’ll be a better picture and video taker on my next adventure. Let me know if you enjoyed this post, have any advice, and of course what you’re currently reading in the comments! I miss you all like crazy. Let me know if you’re still here. Have a good week and as always, Happy Reading!
