2018 is drawing to a close and these are some of the best moments from this year and some of the top things from my blog!
Top 2018 Moment:
The best moment I had this last year was when I was watching “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and I realized that “The Watcher in the Woods” had Kyle Richards in it. I posted on twitter and she retweeted it out! I was so excited. I consider her one of my top divas forever!
Top 2018 Book:
This is a tie, which may come as a shock since one was not a five-star read for me. This is however based on my actual experience and feelings with each. Both have a special place in my heart:
Not Like Everyone Else by Jennifer Leigh
Reason: This was the first true indie book I reviewed for someone that I have been interacting with in the community. While this was not a five-star review, I feel that this book was the one that I have remembered throughout the year. I have admired what the author did with it. She self-published. She worked hard on this. I cannot put into words the amount of respect I have for this author. The respect and admiration I feel for her grows with every interaction. You should check out her blog as well, which I read on the regular. Her blog can be found here: bound to writing
Defense of an Other by Grace Mead
Reason: I went into this book when I was starting to get into a reading slump because I kept reading what I thought I was supposed to read as a blogger. I would start a book and then put it down, unable to continue. I signed-up for this book based on the synopsis sent to me. I devoured this book in 2 days! I couldn’t put it down. It reminded me of one of the things that I had wanted to do on this blog was discuss harder topics. I wanted to show that literature can teach us things and this book definitely did that. It teaches us that there is inequality in the world. This felt like one of the most important reads, for me, this year. It felt like it reminded me to be an actual reader of content that I wanted. It also didn’t hurt that I enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the pacing of it! Since reading this, I cannot say how many times it has came back to my thoughts. It isn’t one of those hyped popular books, but it is one of those books that is so important to read.
