Jan 2019 was a pretty amazing reading month. I got through 12 books, and was delighted to read on in some series I’m loving, and to devour some books by favourite authors of mine.
Jan 2019 wrapped up
- Favourite Book: The Dream Daugher – it blew me away and I actually dreamt about the characters
- Most Anticipated Book: The Wytch Elm – yes it delivered
- Scariest Book: Behind Closed Doors – freaked me the hell out!
- Book Where The Tagline Delivered: Dirty Little Secrets, great tagline, great book.
- Book that I’m still thinking about: The Dream Daughter – and dreaming about
- Book you all need to read: The Dream Daughter – can you tell I loved it..
- Funniest Book: Lessons 1 and 2 – worth waiting for
- Favourite Cover: The Dream Daughter – any chance to remind you to read this book!
- Most Disappointing book: All Fall Down by Tom Bale – a little too dark and a lot too twisted for my Jan mood. At another time, I think I’d have loved this book.
- Saddest book: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine – I liked it, but found it a very depressing read, even though it’s true that Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.
- Lesson of the month: Follow your passions which was inspired by What Happened That Night
- Quote of the month – so true
Life is about intuition, with a splash of logic. If you learn to use the two in the right balance, any decision you take will normally be rightThe Pearl Sister by Lucinda Riley
Beyond the Books
- I’ve started yoga again. I had to quit in Sept when I broke my humerus. Of course, I have to modify all the arm and shoulder moves, but I’m so happy to be practising again.
- Last weekend, I attended a writing workshop. You know the way they say you should do one thing every day that scares you? This scared me so much that I’m covered for the whole year!
- Annoyingly, I got bronchitis. So, it looks like breaking your humerus, also ruins your immune system as I’ve gone from illness to illness since. Time to get back eating healthier and get this body back in to a better zone.
- I choose my word of the year. Passion. I want to follow my passions and feel truly alive. Life is short, as I learn to my cost last year with the untimely death of my brother, Kevin. I want to make my life count, and enjoy as many moments as I can.
