  1. I’m totally jealous of your high average rating. One of my goals for the year is to be better at picking books that I actually think I’ll love instead of just reading ALL OF THE THINGS!!!! :P

  2. So impressed by your stats! My past year has been dismal with book stuff. I think it was a combo of an active toddler, crazy work schedule, and total burnout. But posts like yours keep me with half a foot in the game! I’m definitely happier with reading now that I don’t have a humongo list of books I need to read and do it a lot more for pleasure, but hoping to get to some of the books on your list.

    • Aw thank you! I know how you feel, 2014 was like that for me. Too much going on! I can’t even imagine what it would be like to juggle a toddler as well, I’d never find time to read!
