The Good Reading Habits Tag!! // In Which I Talk Bookshelf Organization, Libraries, & Backlist Books

It may surprise you to hear this, but I’m not really the rebellious type.

Well, at least if you don’t know me very well, that could be surprising. If you do know me, then it probably makes sense that I’ve always been more of a goody-two-shoes type. But when it comes to books and reading, I do have a few habits that are frowned upon by the general reading population. I always feel *slightly* called out when those are brought up, so I was very excited to learn that there is a such thing as the Good Reading Habits Tag!

Blog Title - Design #1 (57)

I was tagged for this by the lovely Erin of Kitty Jade Blog (read her post here), and I can’t thank her enough for the tag. This topic interests me so much, and I’m really looking forward to exposing myself in a positive way in this post. Plus, this is my first tag of the new decade, and it looks like a fun one to start things off with!

The only rules are to pingback to the creator’s post, list some of your good reading habits, and nominate some of your blogging friends to also participate in the fun. I’ll be nominating some people at the end- for now, let’s get into the habits!

2019 Recap // The Best of Books, Blogging, Life Events, & My Goals for 2020!!

Happy New Year, everyone!

While part of me doesn’t quite feel like it should already be 2020 (kind of still feel as if it’s 2015, anyone else agree?), another part of me is incredibly excited that it’s a new year. I have a good feeling about this year and about this decade in general- somehow, I think it’s going to be a year to remember.

On top of all the new year feels, I’m very excited to be doing a wrap-up post for 2019! This year has (mostly) been good to me, and I’m looking forward to taking a look back at what I read, what I blogged, and what’s happened in my life since we last did a full-on recap back in January of last (!!) year.

I also want to take the opportunity to acknowledge the goals that I set in last year’s recap and hold myself accountable for what I did and didn’t accomplish, as well as set new goals for 2020. Literally, this is crazy. Twenty. twenty. I’m also going to be thanking you all for being the most amazing, wonderful blogging friends that could ever have existed- but we’ll get to that later. 😉

For the first time in 2020, let’s get into the post!

The 10 Best Books I Read in 2019 // Me Being a Basic Book Blogger, But For A Good Reason

2019 was a lot of things, and one of those things was a good reading year.

I discovered many new favorites, went out of my comfort zone with books (a little), experienced book hype, and found new authors I love. Yes, there were slumps and disappointing books, but at the end of the day, I look back on what I read over the last twelves months and feel satisfied and happy with it.

So even though this is a very typical book blogger move, today I’m going to be talking about the ten best books I read. My hope is that this post can give you a few recommendations (because don’t we all need our TBRs to grow larger) and allow me to scream one more time about the books I loved in 2019.

There are a lot of books I wish I could include on this list, but I only reread them in 2019, so I don’t feel as if I can count them here. I also wish I could pick an exact order and rank the books accordingly, but I genuinely can’t pick an order, so this post is not necessarily in an order of how good I felt the book was.

Enough of me rambling, on to the books!
