Since I last did a weekly wrap-up I posted my Best of the 2014 list and a December wrap-up. That's it. I can't seem to find my writing mojo. I'd like to post more personal things, perhaps branch out into topics other than books. Maybe? My indecision and lack of focus is epic at this point.
|Nom Nom Nom.|
My book consumption is on the upswing and it makes me SO HAPPY. I've read such delightful books in the last few weeks. Will I ever actually review those books? Ha ha ha.
Reviewing vs. Socializing:
Speaking of reviews - I'd rather talk casually on social media about the books I read. (I'm noticing that trend with more than a few bloggers.) It's a lot more rewarding to have a back and forth conversation about a book than it is to write and publish a review that doesn't see much action.
I tried a new potato soup recipe this week that was to die for. It's easy and cheesy, my two favorite things. (Also: BACON)
|Mike & Vader...aren't they the cutest?|
We had a swell holiday season. Until my husband and youngest daughter got sick. I don't know what is going around but it includes pink eye and it's awful.
My son Carter passed his driving test. He's ecstatic, I'm terrified.
Cats, apparently. The husband surprised me with another new kitten. It's almost embarrassing. He's the cutest thing and we've named him Vader. This is the absolute last one. I swear.
Trish, at Love, Laughter, and a touch of Insanity, told her readers they could ask her anything. What a great idea! I might have to give that a whirl one day.
Katie, at Words for Worms, shared a super fun bookish memory challenge.
Over at The Steadfast Reader, April shared a clear and thoughtful post on the recent happenings in the book blogosphere. It's been difficult for everyone involved and I'm looking forward to putting the situation in my rear-view mirror.
There are some new trends in the book blogging world! (Hooray!) Michele highlights them at A Reader's Respite.
Come hang out with me on Twitter and/or Instagram. It'll be super! While you're at it you might as well like my blog's Facebook page too. I share TONS of bookish articles there.
Tell me what's up in *your* life. What are you reading? Watching? Loving?
Stay warm & healthy, my chickadees!
