Okay, so I know that my currently reading says The Masked City, which is still true, but today is my first day off in what feels like forever, and I woke up this morning fancying a girly, easy read. Thus, in the space of about five hours, I have downloaded and finished Jenny Han’s To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before. I got what I wanted, a girly, easy read, and a review will soon be following. Enjoy!
These are the three goals I would like to achieve on my blog within a year:
- Write at least one review a month
- Commit to TBR Thursdays
- Blog at least twice a week
It’s that time of the year again, I have finished University and I can pick up a book to read for pleasure. I am currently reading The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman, which is the second in The Invisible Library series. So far it is really good, a review will follow, but just to start my blog up again I would like to share my to-read list with everyone:
Charlie N. Holmberg – The Paper Magician
Jodi Taylor – Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary Book 1)
Paula Hawkins – The Girl on the Train
Katie Kacvinsky – Awaken
George R. R. Martin – A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire)
So last week I celebrated my 21st birthday. I had a lovely Tiffany’s cake to match my new Tiffany’s ring, and I think I could become a Pandora model with all of my new charms, a necklace and a ring that I received. I was truly spoilt. I do have to say, I really like this picture of myself, so I felt like sharing it 🙂
I was walking to my hairdressers today and an elderly lady stopped me by my arm and pulled me close to her. She looked me straight in the eyes and said “you are absolutely stunning, you’re so pretty, never forget that”, and this one random act of kindness literally made my day!
That has never happened to me before and I’ve not really heard of it happening to anyone else either. So that made me think, people spend more time putting others down rather than building them up. But what is there to gain from this? It doesn’t make us feel better to upset people, or rather, it shouldn’t. So why can’t we make an effort to go out of our way and make other people feel good about themselves? It doesn’t take much, that literally took a few minutes out of that lady’s day but it made mine so much brighter. So from now on I am going to take note of what this lady did today, and I am going to try and pass on her kindness.
Well, I’m very excited to see that since yesterday views and comments on my blog have increased massively and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you massively. I really appreciate any comments, whether its criticism, compliments, ideas, suggestions – anything!
I am most excited also because I have been asked to review Hawaiian Heartbreak by Libby Cole. I never ever expected anything like this to happen and I’m so happy it did. I am taking this morning to work on my blog and I have a few drafts that I would like to publish. I have the dentist this afternoon (which I hate) so this evening I will be concentrating on reading this book (it is downloading onto my Kindle as I type). I am intrigued to read this book because I haven’t read a good romance in a while – 50 Shades kind of put me of. So I am eager to finish it.
I have also had the idea that at the end of each week (my week ends on a Sunday), I’m going to post a review of what I’ve posted/achieved the previous week, and what I hope to publish in the week to follow. Hope you enjoy!
