Books, Music & More I’m Thankful For In 2018 {Top Ten Tuesday}

181120 Thankful

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s post is in honor of Thanksgiving in the US. While we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Belgium, I do think it’s a nice idea to take a minute and think about everything we’re thankful for. So that’s the meaning of today’s post. To take a minute and reflect on the things that I’ve been thankful for in 2018.

Now, obviously I’m mostly thankful for the people and love in my life. My husband, my family and my friends. They mean the world. Buta post thanking them would end up being an incredibly mushy and sentimental post and since this is in fact a bookish blog, I instead decided to list some books and other forms of entertainment I am thankful for. Because cheesy as it sounds, I am thankful for these. They have helped me in so many ways, so I’m taking the time to spotlight them and tell you why I’m thankful. Let’s go!

(Though honestly I did read six issues of the Fence comic which are suuuper short so it’s a little cheating but I’m counting them anyway because reading is reading right?) Let’s get started!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about those bookish resolutions.

Now, I do love me some resolutions, but after my huge 2017 reading and blogging slumps, my major goal for 2018 is to take it easy. To avoid another slump at all costs. This means I am not taking part in any reading challenges yet, and am setting my Goodreads goal lower as well. And it is noticeable in my resolutions below. Other than my Goodreads goal, I’m keeping all of this kind of vague and balancing them with resolutions to not worry about those resolutions. It kind of makes sense though, I promise!
