7 Books I Read and Fell in Love with in 2019

If you’ve read my previous posts of this kind (2016, 2017, 2018), you already know how it goes:

  1. This is a list of books I read in 2019; not all of them came out that year (but most did);
  2. The books are listed in the order in which I’ve reviewed them, not by how much I loved them (I’ve also included their release dates according to Amazon);
  3. I’m sticking to one book per author, but I reserve the right to include in the HONORABLE MENTIONS another work by an author who is present in my FELL IN LOVE WITH section.

That’s it.

Without further ado, here are the seven books I FELL IN LOVE WITH in 2019, followed by five HONORABLE MENTIONS. We start off with Continue reading

2020 Plans for the Blog (and why I was away)


If you follow me on social media, you’d know why I haven’t posted anything around here in a (long) while; if not, here’s the brief version: I had several personal and health issues and took time off from writing to take care of myself. However, my self-imposed writing vacation is now off.

What does this mean for the blog?

Basically, things will go back to the way they were: book reviews, book blitzes, writing tips and prompts, writer interviews, etc.. As for the frequency of posts: I’m trying to go easy on myself so while I’m thinking of a two per week minimum I’m going to attempt to keep the posts down to no more than four per week. There will be at least one book review each month (more likely two or even three), and two Writing Wednesdays; I’m also going to do my best to include at least a couple of giveaways each month.

If there’s a particular thing you want to see on my blog, you can always leave me a comment here or drop me a message on social media.

Lastly, I’ll be accepting ARCs for reviewing again. January spots are already taken, but I have a spot open for February. If you are interested, you can submit your ARC here.
