February Goals.

This month I’m linking up with Nicole at writes like a girl to share my goals for February! But first, let’s review how I did in January… JANUARY GOALS: Finish 4 books. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my goal last year was to read 52 books and I only finished 48. So this year, […]

2017 Reading Challenge.

I’ve looked at several reading challenges the last few years, but never really committed to one other than just trying to read a certain number of books within a year.

4 days in a row of blog-tember! Here’s a little of what’s currently going on in my life…   Reading…The Last Star by Rick Yancey. I read the first two of this series in July so I really want to finish the trilogy this month. I’m also reading 3 other books. I’m really thinking about […]
