Happy New Year, bookwyrms! Welcome to our very first wrap-up of many for the new year. Well, when we feel like writing a wrap-up that is… because there’s no pressure, right? Not when you have goals that you want to accomplish in 2019.
But FIRST, we begin with a trophy presented to Kaleena from Reader Voracious for urging me to um… look for that like button option. I struggled to find the option and then I
gave up forgot completely until a few months ago one Discord night last year when she encouraged me to search again.
Then she promptly liked my 50 Shades of Grey trailer opinions post because apparently smol Sophia is hilarious AF. We’re not linking that, bookwyrms. (Except now that everyone knows that, you’re probably going to search for that post.)

I also listed my Top 8 YA Books of 2018 over at The Arts STL, and I just noticed there’s an indie book on there. 😱
The only book I got is This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada, right on New Year’s Day. The person before me must be cruel to do this to me.
I got nothing. I’m honestly this waiting for the textbook list from my university. That will be the next book haul which should be soon!
Surprisingly I didn’t read as much as I hoped I would??? I finished Grail by Realm Lovejoy after nearly 3 years since I read Sword and found the series available on Kindle Unlimited. Then the reading luck continued with The River Witch by Helena Rookwood, so now I’m backed up on dragging books throughout early 2019, in between ARCs and other reviews.
I then started Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury because I read physical ARCs slower than I read eARCs. Might as well start early.
I also started Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee and omg it is amazing and I’m enjoying myself a lot. When you read a book a little slow so it doesn’t end so quickly.
Sophia is bugging me to read This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada. I am aware that she got the sequel on new years. My goal this week is to go to the library and hopefully they have it available. I know I can put a hold on the title and get it later. Recently I got a new card at a library I am not familiar with. So I got to get used to the website and all that stuff. That is a big downside to moving counties.
One more week before I go back to classes, RIP to me. Most of my January posts are scheduled, so a lot of my time was spent doing nothing but typing up posts that may or may not show up in the future. And hanging out on Discord outside work because who sleeps?
PLUS I KNOCKED OUT A GOAL ALREADY. Lupe is officially in the New Bloggers Discord Server and wow, this is a smol accomplishment.
The spring semester is upon us! Well for some of us.
I signed up for a two-week online class called Love 101 which begins tomorrow. It was the only class that sounded ridiculous and easy. I will certainly let you know if I learn anything interesting.
I did join the New Bloggers Discord Server. Even though I am not on the chat all the time, it is fun to get to know other book lovers!
