Merry Christmas!! (And Looking forward to 2020)

Merry Christmas everyone!! So the night didn't go so well... I didn't go to sleep until five and before that I had a bad anxiety attack so I am just a little bit tired this morning haha However, I still got up at eight thirty and we all opened presents at nine. It was a nice, chill morning and now everyone's either playing with the new things they got or just hanging out. I got The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh and it looks beautiful (wink wink) on my shelf! I also got this really nice new notebook that's specifically for notes and stuff. It's so pretty and looks so nice on the inside I don't want to mess it up with my note taking and messy handwriting. I also got a new prayer journal which I think I'm going to start the New Year with. I'm almost done with the one I have right now and this one is smaller and has Bible verses in it so it's a perfect one to start the New Year with. If I write in it every day it should be full by the end of January. I also…

2019 Wrap Up

Happy Wednesday! We're a week away from Christmas! And since there's only this Wednesday and next Wednesday left of December and 2019 I figured I'd better start with my wrap ups now.
2019 was... a good year. It was a year of change and growth for me and a whole lot happened this year.

But first and foremost, I must list off all the books I've read (so far) in 2019. I had planned to get to 50 books read this year buuut I'm not sure that'll happen. I might get to 45. If I read the Mercy Falls trilogy fast enough haha

My Top Seven Books of 2019: 

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes 

Slayer by Kiersten White 

Legacy by Shannon Messenger 

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh 

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi 

The Wicked King by Holly Black 

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black 

The Best TV Shows and Movies of 2019: 

Into the Spiderverse  This was literally the best movie of the entire year and is now one of my all time favorites. Just the animation... the characters... the emotion... all of…

Five Fave Winter-y Books

Happy Thursday! Sorry this is a day late... I totally spaced and forgot to post it yesterday! :o

So I'm loving all the features Instagram has for their stories. I used the question feature to ask for suggestions on blog posts I should write. I want a fresh list of new ideas going into the new year so I can start out strong and be consistent on here. One of the suggestions I got was winter-y reads. I was going to do one on my writing journey buuut as I started writing it the post sort of turned into three posts... So I think I'm going to save that for January.

For now though, how's about a list of winter-y reads. Not Christmas books because I don't read a lot of books set near Christmas or themed as Christmas books, but as I thought about it, I have actually read quite a few books set in winter.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I'm actually in the middle of reading this right now and so far it's so good! It's set in winter and is the perfect chilly read. Plus, Ma…

November Monthly Wrap Up

I'm about five days late for this post but better late than ever. November is officially over! And I'm kind of sad... and freaking out a little that we have one more month until 2020. I don't know what to do with that information.

November was a month for me. I feel like it was just one thing after another. My anxiety and depression were acting up big time at the beginning (and the middle), there were a few very emotional moments and now that November is almost over I feel like it's finally settling down. I'm getting rid of the format I usually use for monthly wrap ups for this post because... I don't feel like using it. I'd rather just make a nice long list of everything that happened in November. There were some good things that came out of this month though. Here are a few of them:

I started St. Croix Falls 3 and got to 50,000 words in it!I won Nanowrimo when I didn't think I could. This month was a much needed break from all other writing obligations…
