Welp. Another month has come and gone and I did not read as much as intended, which appears to be my new normal. I should feel grateful that I overall enjoyed what I read but it’s hard. Reading, for whatever reason, isn’t sparking the same joy as it has in the past. Thus my joy meter is low overall. But let’s not get depressing, okay? We’re here to talk books which does make my heart happy.Continue Reading …
I softly croon to my favorite books from 2016. And I will: Always love you. I will carry you, dear favorite books, as lovingly as Kevin Costner carried the late, great Whitney Houston from danger. And to those who have no idea what I’m talking about … it’s called The Bodyguard. Rent it. And shut up. 😀 Not only is December special because Santa comes to visit, but we also have two Show Us Your Books Link-ups!
Oh my. Indeed! This month I was all over the place with the kinds of books I read. And the results were definitely mixed, which saddens me but is the life of a reader. Some books simply don’t live up to expectations. It was also a strange month because it felt like I had read very little; but when I put this post together, there were more books to include than I expected. My mental calculation was likely off due to a few disappointing books. They make me lose interest in reading. Does that happen to you? The books were not an outright loathe, but not as good as I had expected either and sometimes that is worse. Oh well. There are always more books to be devoured. And loved. And loathed.
I’m not gonna lie, folks, I’m really pumped up about today’s post. Since launching A Mindful Migration, I’ve made some new buddies, including the totally awesome, funny and fellow book aficionado, Jana from Jana Says. Every month, she hosts a Show Us Your Books link-up where you can share what books you’ve read the previous month. I read every single post in the link-up last month and it’s not an exaggeration when I say my reading list is now bigger than me! And I love it! I am so grateful to connect with other readers who love books as much as I do and offer such great recommendations.
