Do you get books as gifts? 📚 I have some friends that I know will always gift books but for the most part I acquire my own. My latest purchase was this beautiful finished copy of Tweet Cute by Emma Lord at her launch party. 📚 I read this as an arc and it’s already solidly one of my favorite books of 2020–and not just because Emma Lord and I bonded over our shared name.l or because I’m making Monster Cake next month. 📚 #instabooks #strandbookstore #amreading #instareads #lovereading #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookstagramit #bookish #bookishfeature #bookblog #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #tweetcute #emmalord #bookstore

How My Week Went:

I have been off this entire week for my vacation and it has been great. One of my goals this year has been to become less plan averse which means I have to actually follow through on plans when they are proposed. This has been a constant surprise to me. BUT I did a lot of fun things this week. I went to Emma Lord’s launch for Tweet Cute at the Strand with my friend Estelle (and we got dinner beforehand and finally exchanged xmas/bday gifts, yay!). I took myself to see Knives Out (more vomit and fewer sweaters than I expected but I liked it a lot–very fun) and went into Target for the first time ever to buy peacocks. As I write this I am getting ready for dinner plans. And have a writing group meeting and delayed birthday plans for next weekend too. What a time to be alive.

What are your favorite faerie fantasies? 📚 Obviously I’m a big fan of Holly Black’s Folk of the Air books. Now that this series is done I have to find my next faerie obsession so hit me up with suggestions in the comments. 📚 Shown here: my regular and BN special edition hardcovers with bookends from @illumicrate’s Cruel Prince special edition box designed by @noverantale. 📚 #instabooks #signedbooksundays #amreading #instareads #stacksaturday #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #thequeenofnothing #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #folkoftheair #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookstagramit #bookish #thewickedking #bookblog #thecruelprince #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #illumicrate #illumicratecruelprince #hollyblack

Does anyone else feel like this has been the weirdest week? 📚 So far today I’ve gone with my mom to her doctor’s appointment (all well), cooked breakfast, replaced our home router, and packed some stuff I sold on eBay. 📚 Next up: post office, bank, and pharmacy to pick up some of my mom’s prescriptions. 📚 I am currently between books and trying to figure out how to top my recent run of books that feel like they were 100% written for me including Serious Moonlight which follows amateur detective Birdie as she tries to make sense of a weird mystery at her first full time job and her even more mysterious coworker Daniel Aoki who might just capture her heart if she’s not careful. 📚 I loved everything about this book and totally identified with so much of Birdie’s story. A must read if you like contemporary romance as much as you like mysteries. 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #lovereading #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookstagramit #bookish #bookishfeature #bookblog #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #seriousmoonlight #jennbennett #booksandnails

How My Week Went:

This week kicked my butt. Lots of weird tech issues, my mom was sick, I had to stay home from work days before a big training I was moderating. While running a secondary instagram account where I was talking about my work life. It was a lot. But I made it. Which means I still win.

How My Week Went:

With all the holiday stuff this week felt about fifteen days long but it was good otherwise.

The end of this year was a weird milestone putting a full decade between me and what was, to date, the worst year of my life. It’s too much to encompass in tidy, reflective thoughts but I did want to share the resolutions I shared on Twitter and Instagram earlier this week.

My wish for 2020 is to continue to be brave, to take chances, and to level up. I want to see friends more. I want to stop being afraid to make plans. I want 2020 to be the year things I’ve been talking about and working on start coming together.

My wish for all of you in 2020 is to have the space you need to find yourself, to find your people, and to find your joy. May we all only have the best of things in 2020 and beyond. Happy new year!
