Currently Reading Vol.5, and where I'm at with reading in 2020

Amongst many other things, I, unfortunately, didn’t complete my 2019 reading goal (wanted to read 24 book, read 23 and a half. VERY frustrating), so I felt a bit shy to make my goal for 2020 30 books, which is what I had originally planned for. I feel like if the number is too high…

Setting goals for 2020

Another year has gone by, and contrary to my yearly tradition, this year I didn’t have the time between Christmas and New Year’s to really unwind and reflect about all the things 2019 taught me, and what I wish to accomplish in 2020.

Some of my guilty pleasures that are not that guilty

I think I have a full understanding of the whole guilty pleasure thing. Something that you like but you are not supposed to, something that feels good and wrong at the same time. Or, according to the trusty urban dictionary: When you enjoy a type of music or particular program but you are too ashamed to admit you listen…

Currently Reading Vol.2

My reading habit is a fragile one. I am forever feeling guilty that I am not reading enough, not going to reach my yearly goal, that I am falling behind on goodreads… Why would this be such a fragile habit, when it’s something that I genuinely enjoy doing so much? I blame it on bad…
