The Best Books of 2017

Let's be honest, 2017 wasn't the best year in reading for me. Between school, an internship, dance class, and college applications, plus all the other insanity, I didn't have a lot of reading time on my hands. But there were some books that meant everything to me, and certainly some stand outs. To me, reading has always been a part of my life. As my dad likes to say, reading is my Tardis (for any of you Doctor Who fans out there). Without books, I would be incomplete. Stories and words fill life with meaning and adventures I perhaps wouldn't experience in my evil kings and monsters in sewers. Well, to be fair those things could happen I suppose, but in most cases, I hope not.

New Year + Big News

Happy New Year! I suppose I'm here wondering how to start this off right, as we all do this time of year. I'm not really one for the "new year, new me/new start" mindset; I am too reluctant to let go of the past year when the new one rolls around. I spend my years counting down dates and hours towards something exciting, and yet when the time finally runs out and the new year arrives, I am perpetually surprised. I suppose I get caught up in the mentality of it all, even when time is such a fickle concept that just runs through my fingers and falls away off worlds without me noticing. I don't want to miss a second of it, even while I sometimes wish the seconds away in favor of the future.
