2017 brought out some of the trends of 2016 into full force, and also pushed me to see some of the glaring flaws in all of this. I am always willing to try things, but I have tried these things, and they have got to go. This list also includes some things that I feel like I have been doing wrong. So here are five general things I am leaving in 2017:
Dear Reader, I think I have made a grave mistake in making these two separate categories, but I did want to explain the logic behind why I do what I do (especially after posting 8 book reviews in a row from 2015, having some new followers, and a plan to post a couple new book thoughts in the near future).
I don’t know if I have ever done a proper book haul on this blog. I know I’ve done library hauls before, but I think this is slightly different. However, I have found myself purchasing some books, and because of that, I wanted to share them with you.
I’ve been following Hannah Hart since some of her very first My Drunk Kitchen episodes, and Hart has always kept her past and personal life separate from her public life. This book dives into the personal bits, and it was a book that was definitely worth the read.
I love reading memoir, and have for a long time. I’ve been reading memoir since I was a child, so naturally, when I heard about The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr, I jumped on it. Ashley from Climb The Stacks recommended this, and the link goes to her video review of the book.
A lot happened this week, and a lot of it has been on my radar, so let’s talk about it:
I love audio books, and have been attempting to get into Brene Brown’s books for a while, so when I saw Daring Greatly on Hoopla Digital, I snatched it up. But here’s how this reading experience is different from others.
I have such good intentions of finishing the books I start. I love starting books, but the ability to finish them often requires me to plow through a sense of dread I have regarding the latter half of the book. Here are three books I started this year, and am probably not going to finish.
Things that are happening on the internet, curated for you here, by me. Let’s get into it:
In January of this year, the publication I worked for closed it’s doors, not even publishing the works that were in the queue. Small online only magazines close all the time. I have been involved in four such publications that closed their doors.
