First of all, I’m sorry.
I was not doing very well in March so I just stopped blogging for a while and I skipped a monthly Book Discussion. To be honest, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I got a few messages from you guys asking me about it, and it totally made my week. Thank you.
I’m really excited to start this new series of posts!

2016 did not go as well as I’d hoped. Most of the TBR on my list remain unread, and I only read about 40 books in total. Overall, it was a good year anyway, because I read some REALLY great books, which you can have a peek at over here.
But 2016 is behind. Let’s focus on the year ahead! I have three goals for 2017. Continue reading “2017 Reading Challenge”
2016 flew by, and I unfortunately didn’t read as many books as I had hoped. On the bright side, I did read a LOT of great books, and let me tell you sitting down to pick only ten of them was no piece of cake.
Some of them I read during my online Book Club, some are sequels to series I started in 2015 (or 2016). Anyway, here they are:
Hello fellow readers!
So…… I’m afraid my reading slump is swallowing me whole. I keep starting books that I don’t finish and I HATE MYSELF for it but my mind is everywhere lately with a couple of writing projects I’m really excited about and I felt like sharing this.
That being said.
I did finish the book of the month (of course I did, what did you think? That I was a coward? NO! I read it in like two days) and I’m really excited to talk about it with you! So let’s start this!
This week’s topic:
This week’s topic:
That is so nice! I want to thank Lara so much for the nomination! Everybody go check out her awesome blog, The Blackberry Season, about lifestyle and travelling; it is so well written and her talent for photography will make you jealous (in a good way, really).
If the bloggers I nominate choose to accept, go through the official rules and find out more about the award.
Half of the year has gone by already–how did that happen, seriously? Six months ago, I challenged myself to read a list of books in my bookshelf that I’ve always intended to read but never do because I buy new ones I’m too excited about. (Sounds familiar?)
It took a while for summer to finally settle here in Quebec, but now that it’s officially here–or at least let’s hope so–I can finally make a list of my To Be Read books for the summer! Some of those titles are also on my 2016 Reading Challenge, (it’s not going so well; I need focus) some are brand new books I can’t wait to begin, and some are just perfect for the summer season. Anyhow, here is the list:
Not only you’ll be Earth-friendly, but you’ll be able to use that time to read. (Yes, I read as I walk, it’s a thing. Maybe not on busy streets, but it’s a thing.)
Not that I’m not a keen reader (I usually read over 60 books per year, which I like to consider an awesome amount, even though I have friends exceeding 100) but there are books on my shelves that I never read, and that I keep postponing because I bought new ones I’m way too excited about. You know the drill. Continue reading “2016 Reading Challenge”
