2019 Bookish Discoveries

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

2019 was a pretty good year for me when it came to books. I read the second most per year in the decade (I don’t think anything will ever top the 116 tally from 2017) and I found some books that will stay with me for a long, long time to come.

Not only have I found new books to fawn over, but I’ve also discovered some fantastic bookish podcasts or shops to bring with me into the new decade. it really was a year of discovery for me. Surprisingly, I discovered so many amazing things that aren’t even authors. Finally, a way to control my TBR.

Books I’m Thankful For

This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

We don’t really have Thanksgiving in Ireland, which is a shame because the holiday contains many of the things I enjoy – friends, family, and food. A lot of food.

That’s not to say I can’t take on one of the fundamental things about this holiday, and give some praise to some books that made quite the impact on my life. These books have shaped me significantly, and they’re for sure books you should also pick up.
