Hello everyone! I know this is a tiny bit late but Happy New Year to all of you! First off can we just look at how adorable that white owl is? Channeling Hedwig somewhere there… I have been in an owl kick lately (it’s a thing, trust me) and I can’t seem to get over owls for some reason hence the one welcoming you to 2016 for my blog.
If I am being completely honest, I absolutely have no idea what to expect this year. I am obviously hoping that good things will come and that this year will teach me more life lessons and of course, more bookish adventures to come! I am so thankful for the last part of 2015 for introducing me to the wonderful book community both in blogs and in other social media platforms. I am soooooo happy for having met so many people sharing the same love that I have for books and reading. The online book community is really home to some of the nicest people. And you know what they say right? Don’t trust a person who doesn’t read. That may be a bit too intense but you get what I mean. And the authors, oh man… they are the best…
Despite coming into this year with no real expectations, I still do have things that I look forward to. One of them would be career opportunities and growth. I don’t know if I have said it before here in my blog but I love being a nurse, and I will always be one. I’ve always felt blessed being given the chance to be such.
Another would be growing in the book community. I have always had this passion for reading. And like most of you who read my blog, I spend hours on end reading and arguing with characters. Uh-huh. I do that too. I look forward to more books and I mean MORE BOOKS! Give them to me!! I also just set my Goodreads Reading Challenge and some of you might think it is a very small number but because I am such a bad blogger in updating my account on the books I have read, I thought this number would be a good start. Plus if I read more than that would be better right? Check out my Reading Challenge and the books I have read so far here and let us be Goodreads buddies!!!
Alright! I am really psyched about reading and writing and blogging and meeting and talking to more people (and authors) in the book community this year! If you are new to my blog, Welcome! I hope you enjoy! If you have been one of the 88 WordPress followers or the 182 amazing people who follow via email, thank you very much and I pray for more wonderful years for us with books, tea, blogposts, coffee, and fairy dust.
Again, thank you everyone for welcoming me into this community with such warmth and support. I look forward to a year of fun and flailing.
What are you looking forward to this year? How did you find my blog? What do you think about it?
