GOODREADSby Jane AustenMarch 2016 UPDATE: Read count up to 5 now. ;) This time around, I listened to the audiobook (Blackstone Audio - Narrated by: Carolyn Seymour) and thoroughly loved it!! :D I couldn't have asked for a better narrator! So if you're looking...Another book to add to my favorites. :) There's a good reason that Lynette Eason made it onto my favorite authors list so quickly. She's a wonderfully talented suspense author who makes me want to read her books all the way through in o...by Melissa TaggWow. What a pleasant surprise! I mean, I did expect an enjoyable read -- this is one of Melissa Tagg's books, after all! ;) -- but I was still taken by surprise by how much I really enjoyed this book! If you know me well, you know that I...

Now that's the stuff of a bookworm's nightmares... 😱 . . #badadvice #bookwormlife #booklover #bookworm #bookwormproblems #bookstagram#BookwormProblems #thestruggleisreal #thisisme #relatable #bookwormlife #tbrpile #books #booklover #bookstagramWell... 2018 was, by far, my worst year of reading that I can remember. 😕 According to Goodreads, I've read 100-164 books a year since 2011. Last year I did good to finish 55-- most of which were read in the first half of the year and about 1/3 were re-reads. The last half of 2018, especially, was pretty rough for me in a lot of ways and I feel like I spent most of it in an awful reading slump because I just had so much going on mentally and emotionally that I didn't have the ability to really focus on a book no matter how good it was. I have accumulated a huge stack of books to read and (don't faint, y'all!) I actually told my mom to not get me any books for Christmas (I thought *she* might faint at that Lol) because I just can't keep adding to this pile of books without reading any of them. 😝 So anyway... here's hoping that 2019 will be a better year for reading. I'm not aiming high, just hoping to read more than I have been the past few months. I've got quite the stack to work through, not including the audiobooks on hold at the library (oh, what would I have done without my audiobooks?) so I shouldn't run out of reading material any time soon. 😜 . . #readingchallenge2018 #bookwormstruggles #wishiwasreading #challengefail #heresto2019Happy page one, my friends! May this and the next 364 pages of your life come together to create a beautiful story full of good memories!
