Non-Bookish Favorites of 2018 + Mini Wrap-Up // Yes, I actually like things other than books

Happy New Year’s Eve!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

Since today is the last day of 2018 (๐Ÿ˜ฑย I’m still shook), I’m here to share my non-bookish favorite things of 2018!! And yes, I’m just as surprised as you are: I enjoy doing things other than reading. books are my first love though, don’t worry

Specifically, in my free time (more like in my “i should be doing homework and other productive things” time), I love to marathon TV shows, watch movies, and listen to music!! (I know, these are very basic hobbies, but I LOVE DOING THEM AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS.) ๐Ÿ’“

And because this is a book blog, and I can’t write one post without mentioning books, I’ll list a few books that should’ve made myย favorite books of 2018 post, but didn’t because i was too lazy to write more. Lastly, I’ll end this post with aย list of what I accomplished this year & my 2019 goals, as a way to wrap up 2018. ๐ŸŒŸ

Excited? I sure am, hehe. Let’s get started!! ๐Ÿ’ซ

Favorite Books of 2018 // My best year of reading diverse books

Hi everyone! โœจ

I hope you all had a merry Christmas (if you celebrate it) and are enjoying your holiday season! Sending you all my love and good vibes. ๐ŸŒŸ

I’m so sorry for my unplanned blogging hiatus – it’s been stressful and overwhelming over the past month, due to school and finals and life in general. ๐Ÿ™ƒย But no worries! I’m finally on winter break (actually, I’ve been on break for over a week now), and I’m so grateful for this three-week vacation from school. ๐Ÿ˜Œย i really need it

Withย only a few more days until the new year (how???), I’m going to share myย favorite reads of 2018ย with you all!! I’m SO excited about this post, because 2018 has been such an amazing year for me, bookish wise. ๐Ÿ“š

Most Anticipated 2019 Releases // Aka I cry about how slowly time goes by

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ’“

Welcome back to my blog, where I’ll be screaming about five books that won’t be released until next year (otherwise known as my most anticipated 2019 releases)! ๐Ÿ™ƒ It’s never too early to start talking about 2019 releases, right? (2019 seems so far away now, because I want to read these books SO BADLY already. ๐Ÿ˜ญ)

By the way, if you haven’t already, you should check out myย Most Anticipated Fall 2018 Releases post to see the last time I ranted about the passage of time. :’)

I became inspired to write this post after readingย Lily’s #Novel19s Book Recommendationsย post! You should definitely check out Lily’s post if you haven’t already, because she does a wonderful job convincing you to add more books to your probably overflowing TBR. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย I hope I’ll do the same with this post. ๐Ÿ‘€

Birthday Book Tag // Oh my gosh I’m getting so old!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi everyone! ๐ŸŒŸ

Yes, today is my birthday!! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐ŸŽ‰ย (And yes, this year, my birthday coincidentally fell on the day of daylight savings. My birthday is 25 hours long ๐Ÿ˜‚)

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but (this is past Dezzy speaking) I just realized that my birthday is coming up, and so I decided to do the Birthday Book Tag! ๐ŸŽ‚

I first saw this tag over on Tiffany’s blog, Read by Tiffany, when she posted this on her birthday back in September! It looked like such a cute and fun tag, and so I decided to do it too, as it seemed fit for the occasion, hehe.

I honestly can’t believe it’s my birthday already! I know I always say this, butย time flies by way too quickly.ย There’s only two months of 2018 left?! That can’t be right. :’) i’m going to be graduating high school in 2019 and it’s honestly blows my mind that 2019 IS ALMOST HERE oh my goshhh

ANYWAY.ย Excuse my mini existential crisis. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย i’m always like this around the time of my birthday. But without further ado, let’s get started with this tag!! ๐ŸŽ

Sunshine Blogger Award // In which I’m very indecisive…but what’s new?

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ’—ย I hope that October has been treating you well!

I know this is my first blog post in two weeks; life has been extremely stressful for me lately. I’m struggling to balance school, college apps, reading, and blogging all at the same time, and my mental health definitely isn’t the best right now. Reading, writing blog posts, and blog hopping helps me relax and destress, though, so I don’t want to sacrifice my reading and blogging time for homework,ย even though sometimes I have to :’)

Sorry for this random (and negative) rant; I just needed to let this out. I love you all, and remember that your mental health and well-being matters! It’s always okay to take a break and do the things you love. ๐Ÿ’ž

Anyway, let’s get to the point of this post! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the amazingย Amber @ ambsreads! Thank you so much for the nomination, Amber! It means so much to me.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย You should check out Amber’s blog if you haven’t already; her book reviews and discussions are always great.
