I can’t believe it’s 2021 already- happy new year to everyone! I hope you all had an amazing end of 2020 and a great beginning to the new year.
I have to admit, 2021 really snuck up on me. It still feels weird that we’re no longer in 2020, and even weirder to realize that I spent 75% of 2020 stuck at home. While I’m not harboring any unreasonable expectations for 2021, I still hope that I’ll spend more of my year doing normal things instead of at home.
To be honest though, I’m kind of feeling… neutral about everything. I’m not really a “eff 2020” sort of person because 2020 did actually do a lot to build my character and mold me to the person I am now (dramatic, I know), but it’s not like I loved 2020 or anything.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that one constant throughout 2019, 2020, and now hopefully 2021, has been blogging. Blogging brings me a lot of joy, and writing about what I love has been really important to keep me grounded.

All of these are in no particular order unless specifically mentioned. And just to be clear, these weren’t necessarily published in 2019 (some of them were, though). These are just books that I loved this year. Also, I’ll be won’t be posting my least favorite books separately but there’ll be a small section for them too!
MY TOP SEVEN BOOKS OF 2019
Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
This was an absolute delight to read! Now, at the end of the year, I’m seeing this book in a lot of people’s wrap-ups: there are definitely more of these on disappointing book lists than I thought there would be! But, of course, a book can’t please everyone! Also, it gets extra points for being diverse (gay rep).
Premise in a sentence: The prince of England and the son of the US president fall into an epic and fluffy love affair right before the US elections.
