I can’t wait to see what you have in store for me. As you may or may not be aware, things have been quiet here on the blog. Between the holidays and the lack of inspiration to post I yet again, found myself on a hiatus of sorts. But that’s okay, I bet some you did the same.

I read 26 books in total mostly consisting of audiobooks. I restarted my membership with Audible Escape again so the books are mostly in the Romance genre. I once again found myself re-reading Melina Marchetta’s Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil because I just can’t help it. It’s my new favourite thing to do when I find myself unable to decide on which book to start next. I also re-read Red, White & Royal Blue because, Alex and Henry are #goals and will forever be #goals.
The biggest surprise of the month for me, and maybe even the year, was Turbulence by Whitney G. It features a dysfunctional relationship between a flight attendant and a pilot, which was forbidden to begin with. But that’s not only its draw. It was so different from anything I’ve ever read before and a plot line that was very well executed. I loved it so much, I bought the paperback copy. It was a book on the Audible Escape library. The rest of the books are as follows:
Goodbye Paradise by Sabrina Bowen | How to Date Your Dragon by Molly Harper | Worth It All by Claudia Connor | Worth the Wait by Claudia Connor | Love and Other Wild Things by Molly Harper | Turbulence & Epilogue by Whitney G | Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta | Selkies are A Girl’s Best Friend by Molly Harper | American Royals by Katherine McGee | The Beautiful by Renee Adieh | Brant’s Return by Mia Sheridan | The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan | The Dirt on Ninth Grave by Darynda Jones | Regretting You by Colleen Hoover | The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater | The Christmas Pact by Vi Keeland | Cage Match by Bonnie Dee | Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta | Blue Days by Mary Calmes | The Virgin Gift by Lauren Blakely | Heels Over Head by Elyse Springer | Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston | Attraction by Penny Reid | Heat

I read a total of 278 books in 2019. If you’re just tuning in, I had a goal to reach 2,000 books last year — all time total, that is. And I reached it quite easily. I believe I was 150 books behind when I first realized it in the middle of the year. So with the help of audiobooks courtesy of my Libby app, I set my sight on reaching that goal — which I did!
This year, and like every other year, my goal is set at 150 books. But like I said on my recent Instagram post, I’m going to take it easy and digest the books I read. I felt like all the books I read last year bled from one book to the next. I never gave myself the chance to actually marinate in the words and the stories.
I hope 2020 brings you joy, peace, and prosperity. And may we all continue to find comfort in books! Happy reading. 🙂
