As I spoke on last year, I wanted to keep the passion going through the holidays and not lose steam as I moved into this new year. But the holiday season was as much about taking a break to enjoy my family and friends as it was about curling up with a good book; and due to being able to take extended time off of my job around that time (and not taking it for granted because others can’t), I had time to think on this blog and where I wanted to see it go this year.
2017 was supposed to be my year of getting back on the wagon with my reading. Recovering from a slightly disappointing 2016, as my number of books that I completed tapered off, I found a goal in my 2017 Reading Challenge. Little did I know that things would not end up the way that I wanted. The second half of the year would see me COMPLETELY get sidetracked by a whole host of things within the realm of real life.
