Happy New Year everyone! I love this time of year when I can sit back and reflect on everything that has happened over the past 12 months, as well as make plans for the upcoming year. Last year I wrote a post about my 2018 reading resolutions, some of which I stuck to and others … Continue reading Reading Resolutions for 2019
This year has nearly come to a close, and what a year it has been! I started this blog back in January, and I must say that it has been an amazing experience. The way I chose and interact with books has completely changed. I’m reading new genres and discovering new authors. I’m thinking more critically as I read and picking up more diverse books and authors. I read more this year than I ever have before (102 books! In one year!). Seriously, this has been an incredible year for reading. But with new reading habits and joining the blogging community comes some difficulties and I've learned a thing or two.

Let's see: Books read: The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet: Becky Chambers … Continue reading January Reading Round-up
I picked up Foundation late last year because 1) I had always wanted to read Asimov and 2) I desperately needed short books to help me catch up on my Goodreads reading challenge. After blasting through the original Foundation trilogy and I, Robot (which deserve their own post sometime in the future), I received the … Continue reading Review: Caves of Steel
For as long as I can remember, my family has had three Christmas traditions: a standing rib roast and Yorkshire puddings for Christmas dinner, not-so-sneakily buying each other gifts we would immediately ‘borrow’, and visiting the local bookshop the day after Christmas. From Borders (RIP) and Vromans in Los Angeles, to Hatchards and Waterstones here … Continue reading Starting the Year Right: The Christmas TBR Pile and Other Reading Resolutions
