16 Blogging Days of Winter – Day 16


Today is the last day of this 16 day blogging journey and I’m sad. I had so much fun doing this. At first I thought to myself “what did I do?!” when I had signed up, but now I wish it was longer.

Now, onto today’s topic. I’m pretty sure we all have many books in our 2014 TBR list, but these are the books that I’m super excited about.

What are some of the books you just can’t wait to get your hands on in 2014?

I’m writing this post on my iPhone so I apologize for the lack of pictures.

There is always talk about the best book to movie adaptations and opinions vary. These are my favorite book to movie adaptations as of now.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
If you start to think about it, the movie made the book better (and was better. The movie had that spark that the book was missing.)

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I’ve seen this movie twice already and both times I thought it was flawless. One of the best adaptations yet.

One I hope will be good adaptation is
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
It comes it February 14, 2014.

I don’t own a lot of bookish things. I don’t collect journals, necklaces, posters, scarf, etc. There is one bookish thing that I do fall for and buy when I see them. That would be bookish mugs. So far I only have 3… well 2 if I was super picky, but one of the mugs I did buy at Barnes and Noble. Here is my collection of bookish mugs! (If you are curious as to wear you can buy these, leave me a comment and I’ll let you know where you can!)

Today I show you my life outside books. The biggest “thing” in my life for the past four years was College. I went to Biola University and obtained a BA in Communication Studies and got a minor in Theology/Bible Studies. I graduated May of 2013. Now, 6 months after graduation, I’ve interned at a Movie Marketing Company and I’ve worked at a Finance Institution. Don’t know what the future holds for me, but that’s a little glimpse into my complete world.

Oh and in the picture below, the girls with the black hair and the red sash on the screen… THAT’S ME!

I’m not really a resolution type of person. I never really do resolutions. For the sake of this post and for my reading I will give myself a reading goal. My goal is to read 50 books in 2014. We all know I can read way more, but I don’t want to pressure myself. I like doable goals. One’s that can make me feel accomplished and at the same time, push me to do more.

What are your 2014 resolutions?

Which book character would you like to spend NYE with?

Oh my, Oh My… This is a very HARD question. I can choose from so many characters that I don’t even know where to begin. I sat here for a minute and it hit me. The character I would like to spend New Year’s Everwith would be ADRIAN IVASHKOV.

Team Adrian YA Crush Tourney

He is sweet, sensitive, funny, the life of the party, and unbelievable sexy. I would be crazy if I wouldn’t want to spend NYE with this beautiful boy.

Now, who would you spend NYE with?

Looking Back

I only really had one goal this year and that was to read 55 books in the entire year… Did I succeed? Well… I FREAKING DID! I’ve read 120 books in this year and I’m currently halfway through 5 different books. So we’ll see if that number will go up by tomorrow.

2013 was the year I actually put a reading goal on myself. I stressed out until I hit that 55 and after that, I read at my own pace. I might do another reading challenge for 2014… maybe I won’t. We’ll see.

Did you guys set any goals for yourself for 2013 and did you succeed?

2013 was the year I’ve read the most books ever. So far I’ve read 120 and there are still three days in the year so I might just bump up that number by 2 or 3 more books. Out of the three topics we could talk about today, I decided to focus on my favorite reads of 2013. Here are some of the books I thought surpassed my expectations and blew them out of the water!

Favorite Book Family

I thought long and hard about this. There are so many family friendships that I love and cherish, but the one I’m going to have to pick is the family in The Books of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler. This book has the best of both worlds, a beautiful family and a beautiful friendship that turns into something more… (Can I have a Vargas boy too?)

The runner up for my favorite book family would be Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. Even though this story is so sad and heartbreaking, it goes through every face of what a family is, the trials a family can come upon, and how even strained friendships can be salvaged bringing healing to everyone.
