Welcome 2016!

Cute White Owl Wallpaper1

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 thisΒ 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. AndΒ 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.

  1. Aww I love this post! I LOVE how much you love nursing! The world needs more people who love their career- especially in a field like nursing where you are caring for people who are in really fragile places. A good nurse can make ALL the difference. When I was in the hospital after I had my daughter, I was a mess- I was on magnesium, and I had just had major surgery of course- and this one nurse was SO SWEET, she just made everything seem so much better. I can imagine you being like that for people, and it makes my heart happy β™₯

    Oh right, books πŸ˜‰ First, your challenge goal is whatever works for YOU! I mean, I see people who want to read like 300 books, and my jaw drops- but it works for them. Sadly, I don’t have the time to do that, and you don’t either. So we do what we can πŸ˜€ The good news is, you are 20% done with your challenge already, which is SO. GOOD. So you will obviously reach your goal!

    This year, my goals are to figure out my life hahha. But in blogging/bookish goals, I want to try to calm down. So far, I am failing πŸ˜‰ The thing I am most excited about is BEA- I just booked my flight tonight and I am giddy with excitement! Hope we all have a fabulous 2016!!

    • I am so excited for you! I read your posts regarding BEA and I could feel your excitement from where I sat! Also, I don’t mind you being overzealous about blogging, works for me! Like I said, binge reading blogs is a hobby and I am all for it! I really need to be better on updating Goodreads, since I found it really helpful for readers and bloggers. I am now making a list of my Top 10 fantasy books I need to read this year and a wonderful twitter follower suggested I do a contemporary one as well so I just might do that. I will probably be doing a twitter poll soon πŸ™‚
      Oh, and thanks for what you said about nurses. We really need that, REALLY. Sometimes I think people tend to forget that we are human too πŸ™‚
      Did you have hypertension when you gave birth? I was wondering because you were on magnesium you said.

  4. I know! I was just thinking about that today and out of nowhere I just thought that, no matter how slow or how far things seem, I will power through them and reach my dreams… I trust in Him to point me where exactly I have to be at the right time.
