My year in books

A very genuine Happy New Year to any and all of my readers. Thank you for sticking with me. I was trying to think of a post to do and I saw this simple one from Lou Morgan. So I was inspired. I didn’t want to be a downer but I didn’t feel that I had anything to really point at to say  that I had achieved in 2015. But I have read almost 30 books so here is my list. As Lou said, I’m not going to make any judgement on them, just document them. Thank goodness for my instagrams of my books!

I find it hard not to have hope, so even though I feel a little sad that some of 2015’s hopes were in vain, I’m choosing to hope more and I’m going to try to be more active in changing my life for the better.

Reading is a way to escape the hard times and to store up inspiration until a time when I’m ready to use it! Books are such a blessing and a comfort. I wish you many wonderful books to read, and adventures to go on in 2016!

  1. I’ve barely read anything in the last three months, I miss it! I had so much reading time when Phoebe was a newborn but it’s not the same this time. I love seeing what you are reading and it reminds me to pick up my books!

    1. I can imagine Zoe! Thank you so much for the card by the way, everyone admired it. You;re more organised than me! How is it going? Happy New Year! I’ve really slowed the last few months too. I think the Christmas rush and a few abandoned books. Hope you get some more reading time in 2016 but you’re doing a very important job!
