I know it’s been a very, VERY, long time since I’ve posted on my blog…but life was extremely busy in 2014. It was a year of planning and then the wonderful deed of getting married! A honeymoon, followed by moving in together…yes, it was a busy year indeed. Now, I’m excited to begin this next chapter of my life as a wife and I know it’s going to be an adventure!
Since I’m now officially hitched, it’s time for me to begin reading and blogging again. Can you believe my reading lifestyle came to almost a complete stop in 2014? I know, weird…but it happened. I think I only read 2-3 books! Although I was preoccupied with preparing for a wedding, I missed my quiet time of reading. Reading is such a big part of who I am and I’m anxious to get back to my roots. And I’ve missed the art of expressing myself through the written word. So onward I go!
In 2015 my goal is to read more, blog more, and to enjoy both to the fullest. I’m not going to put pressure on myself by saying I have to blog every book I’ve read (I plan on reading way more than I can blog about). Instead I’m going to do things a little different this year. You’ll see more posts from me while I’m reading a book. I might share some tidbits about my reading habits, or how long it’s taken me to read a book, or maybe share a bit about the book I’m reading that captures my imagination. I will still review several books throughout the upcoming months, but in-between the reviews you’ll see more personal posts from me. I hope this will allow for a more intimate blogging experience for me and for those who follow my blog.
With that being said, here is a short list of books I’ll be reviewing soon:
- Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
- Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis
- unbroken by Tracy Elliott
I look forward to blogging again and can’t wait to begin my 2015 reading list! It’s going to be a fun journey…and I’m sure you will find some thought-provoking posts in the upcoming months, so be sure to come back or subscribe – you don’t want to miss out on some interesting books soon to be shared on Portraits of M.E.!!
