My Happiness Project

william-morris-quote-happiness

Like I said in my Happy 2018 post, I plan to do start My Happiness Project in order to take back control of my life. I want to start living a proactive life. The best way I can think to do that is making sure that each month I focus on something that will help me grow. The only thing that I am doing that is a bit weird is that I am spending both January and February on the…

Happy 2018!

I'd-rather-die-on-an-adventure-than-live-standing-still-a-darker-shade-of-magic-northcoastwanderer

Happy 2018! This past year has not been a fabulous one for me. Not that anything particularly bad happened. Nothing like the great ankle break of 2016.

All of these books are smack dab in my favorite genres. They make me want to curl up under a blanket with a mug of hot cocoa…

More than that, I am currently obsessed with Norse mythology. Like his other works, Magnus is the son of a Norse god Frey. He has to deal with various gods (who mess with his life), he has to go on quests to fix the god’s mistakes, and he has to…

My September TBR Pile

TBR-september-books

I kept my September TBR Pile on the small side this year, so I can actually get through it. I said the other day on Instagram that during summer I tend to read YA romances that are fluffy and heartwarming. However, when Autumn rolls around I read moodier books and lean toward high fantasy and books that require me to think. I also usually read a YA book about a girl who studies abroad. I think it reminds me of…
