NOTE I did receive this for free, for review. I’m not paid for this review.
Now that that’s out of the way … on to the review.
I wasn’t a huge fan. I think part of it is how FAST Gideon “got over” his PTSD. Like, he found out that a painting he got from someone he knew that had been attached to his squad was worth money, he was okay.
Okay, that over-simplified it, but it did feel really fast. That’s a problem with romance novels, though. That happens A LOT.
My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!
But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.
Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.
Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.
I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.
I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.
Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.
As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O
2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.
2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.
Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!
So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).
I don’t mean I have one. According to Chinese Astrology, my husband I are both “metal roosters”. See, rooster = cock. Cock is funny when you use it that way 😛 Other ways? Belongs in erotica novels only, IMO.
Anyways, continuing on, because I know this is going to get me a fuckton of nasty ass spam comments:
METAL ROOSTER Astrology
Feb 8, 1921 to Jan 27, 1922
Feb 5, 1981 to Jan 24, 1982
Metal roosters are strong and quite people. They remain within themselves and tend to be moody and outspoken sometimes. This temperament makes relationships difficult for them. Though they are reserved by nature they are quite brave and take call of the situation when required.
On the brighter side metal roosters are quite talented people and are completely devoted to their work. They can easily distinguish between right and wrong and have a very analytical approach to life. Even in the toughest of situations, metal roosters come out shining like a star. Their romantic lives are quite smooth, as they believe in life long commitment.
And holy shit! That fits me and my husband very well.
