Hi there, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I wanted to pop in and say a quick, “Hello!” and give you a little update before I begin with my regular blog posts again.
When we last spoke, I was at least 10 books behind in my Goodreads Challenge. I knew setting a goal of 150 this year was going to be difficult, but I wanted to challenge myself. Last year my goal was 100 and upping the goal by 50 was a stretch I was willing to make.
When November rolled around, I finally got over a MEGA book slump and started reading like crazy. So much that I neglected my blog to do it, and while I missed chatting with you all, it was nice to focus on reading.
Over my Thanksgiving vacation I read 11 books in one week! It was insane, but so awesome! I haven’t binge-read like that in a long time and I didn’t want to stop.
Every spare moment I’ve had, I’ve been reading and now I’m only 2.5 books away from my goal (I’m about to finish another book today!)
Once I hit my Goodreads goal, I have a hell of a lot of reviews to write and a ton of ideas for blog posts, so expect to hear from me soon! I’ll be back on a more regular posting schedule and I can’t wait to see what you all have been up to.
I have a request for you:
I’d absolutely love it if you left links to your favorite blog posts that you’ve written over the past couple of months in the comments or send them to me on Twitter at @inloveandwords so I can check them out. I’m dying to see what you’ve been reading and what you’ve been up to!
Aside from reading ALL THE BOOKS, here’s what I’ve been up to:
My best friend had his Black, White, and Sparkles Christmas/Birthday party and a good friend of mine got married!
I love getting all glammed up for Joe’s Christmas/Birthday parties, and this year for the sparkle theme, I went all out with the sparkles and gems:
