After last weeks insane bout of reading, things have calmed down to my usual pace. It doesn’t help that life got in the way quite a bit – between work, snow days, dentist appointments for the kids – I’ve been swamped!! Not to mention I’ve made it a goal to get deeper into essential oils and use them in my daily life, so I’ve spent a lot of time researching and learning about them. I know it will help my health and well being in the long run, but it’s all a little overwhelming right now. But I did finish one book and got part way through 2 more, so things are still going well in the reading department 🙂
BOOKS I’VE FINISHED THIS WEEK:
This book destroyed me! I mean completely demolished my heart and emotions! It took me the longest time to write the review because I was so overtaken by this book! It was one of my most unexpected 5 star reads ever! Review will be posted tomorrow and I hope it’s coherent! lol
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING:
Immediately following Wintersong, I picked up my ARC copy of Shadowsong. I’m not that far into it (sadly) so it’s too soon to form an opinion about it. I also picked up We Are The Ants on audiobook so I can listen to it while I work. Like I said, work has been crazy but luckily i’m not always dealing with customers and can listen to books at the same time. I splurged on wireless earbuds for my phone and they have been an absolutely godsend!! I can move around freely and listen 🙂 Once I finish one of these I will continue my Saga reread and pick up Volume 2

BOOKISH BULLET JOURNAL UPDATE
This week I did an updated post all about my bookish bullet journal. I started fresh in 2018 and made A LOT of changes. I’m so glad that I did because I was able to include things I didn’t realize that I needed, including a book thoughts page, year in pixels to track my mood and more.
IT WAS MY ANNIVERSARY!
I can’t believe it but – MY BLOG IS ONE YEAR OLD! I got a little (lot) emotional while writing that post. Starting this blog was the best decision I’ve ever made. It has changed so much about my life and how I think about myself and what I’m capable of. This first year was so amazing and I have no clue how I’ll top it. I guess I’ll just continue with what I’m doing and go from there 🙂
So that was my week! Crazy in every direction! It was no 4 book week like it was last week, but it was still a great week! I hope yours was amazing as well!
Until next time, happy reading!
