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, Maggie Stiefvater is an absolutely fantastic writer.

The Lost Frost Girl by Amy Wilson.

This one was so fun to read! I read it last year and it was just so whimsical and cute. If you love Jack Frost and stories of self discovery, you'll love this one.

Winterling by Sarah Prineas.

I read this one a looong time ago. I think its set in winter?? But either way, the title Winterling fits so it works haha This was one of my favorite books when I was younger. The whole trilogy is so magical and the two main characters in it are so fun! Plus, I'm in love with this cover. I used want that jacket she was wearing so bad haha

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles.
This one is full of blizzards and cold snowy nights. Also lots of romance, bounty hunters from the underworld and a spunky protagonist who babbles a lot.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu.

Another super fun, cute and magical read. I really love this book. It touches on so many serious and deep topics while also remaining middle grade friendly and really, at its core, it's about best friends and braving a wintery wonderland and an ice queen to save each other.

So there you have it. I guess I've read a lot of middle grade winter-y books, but they're still fantastic. Just with less romance in them haha 

What are some of your favorite Christmas/winter reads??

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
