The last time I posted for this particular blog was on December 7th. Three weeks ago. I can’t believe how quickly time has goes sometimes. I’ve been visiting somebody very important to me and I’ve had an amazing time. I’ll be going home soon. I haven’t read a lot, but I have gotten a lot done and a game plan for getting more done in the future. That’s what matters to me.
I hope everybody had a wonderful holiday. Whatever holiday you may celebrate. I got more gifts this year than I have since I turned eighteen. It truly humbled me. I was also able to do more this year than I have in a very long time. I love giving to those I care about. I also participated in card and gift exchanges for the first time this year. I really enjoyed doing it and I hope to do it again next year.
This year my group and I also somewhat started a tradition. We based it on the Iceland tradition of exchanging books on Christmas Eve and reading and eating chocolate all night. Somebody mistakenly called our thing the Irish Book Exchange, so if it becomes a thing that’s what we will name it. The Irish Book Exchange. I really enjoyed it.
Ladon’s Desire by Michelle Dare: I’m actually really close to being done with it. I listened to most of the book between calls last shift. It’s such a great book. To be honest, this entire series has been amazing. I need a really great reason to go back and read them all! For those of you who have Kindle Unlimited, they are all on there and well worth the read.
These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong: I’m buddy reading this with my book bff. I have to be honest, I’m having a bit of a tough time with it. It’s a Romeo and Juliet retelling. Which is great. There are just things that have made me really squeamish. I can definitely say that this book is not for everybody.
People Like her by Ellery Lloyd: I’m sure people are really sick of hearing me talk about this book. I really enjoy it. I almost dont want to finish it. I’m about halfway through though. I have referenced this book in many other blogs so far.
What I Intend To Start:
Soul of the Fire by Terry Goodkind: I was actually supposed to have started this series on Sunday. It’s book five in the book series I’ve been buddy reading with my mother. I’m really doing great at keeping up! To be fair, I finished the last one way early.
Caste by Isabel Wilkerson: This is the last book I need to read for the Book of the Month challenge. I’m very excited to read it actually. I discovered recently that I have it in audiobook. So I’ll be switching back and fourth between my book and the audio.
