Long time and no post eh?
I went into a major slump with any kind of social media the tail end of last year, and to tell the truth, I’m still struggling with it now.
But I would like to be more present – so why not dig out one of the posts I had lined up and ready, and attempt to come on diving back in.
Hopefully talk to you later,
This year has been a weird one, I think we all can agree. But it’s had its bright moments too! So I’m going to do a little reflection of the highlights of my year, and of course a round up of my reading.
Although I didn’t get out on day trips or holidays like I always do, I managed to savour autumn a little more than usual – and soak up the sun in spring (that behaved like our summer 😂).
I BOUGHT MY FIRST FRIGGING HOUSE!!!!
I’m enjoying my job more.
I celebrated 10 wonderful years with my partner (even if it should have been with blow out in London).
I lost a little weight (something I’ve struggled with since college), and my headspace is definitely feeling like it’s in a better place than I started the year with.
Twenty-Twenty in Books
I have read a whopping 107 books!
That smashed my record by a long long shot!
I can’t quite believe it.
My top five are:
The Fire in the Glass – JAQUELYN BENSON
Set in Edwardian London – we follow a clairvoyant who has seen her best friends death. There’s intrigue, a secret society, mystery, paranormal, and romance. I can’t get over how much I binged this book, and I cannot wait for book two!
Darkdawn – JAY KRISTOFF
Of course I have to mention Darkdawn! I finally read the final in the series and it was incredible! I can’t believe it took me so long to get to it after eagerly waiting for it. Now I’m hungrily awaiting Empire of the Vampire – Jay’s new trilogy set for release Nov 2021.
Heartstopper Vol 1 – ALICE OSEMAN
I actually can’t believe I’ve still only read the first! This was such a cute book – and I loved meeting Nick and Charlie. I have dived into another of Alice’s books, and enjoyed that one too – I must get to all the rest next year!
The Starless Sea – ERIN MORGENSTERN
Possibly the most beautiful book I’ve ever read – and one that spoke to my soul as a reader. I definitely need more books by Erin in my life.
The Daevabad Trilogy – S.A. Chakraborty
I’ve had City of Brass on my kindle since it released and I finally got around to reading it this year – thanks to a buddy read. And OH MY GOSH – WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG!? Despite the size they were a breeze to read, and I’m still thinking about the lavish world now.
