Thank you SOOOO much @hermyknee for the care package! I enjoyed participating in #ReadInTheNewYear ! All of these goodies are absolutely wonderful! I can‘t wait to read the tagged book and I do so love the Sarah Anderson calendar, the mug, the tea and your sweet sentiments. ❤️
So, as it turns out, the A Million Little Pieces scandal really stuck with me. I read it back in 2006 and was pretty miffed when I found out he lied / embellished so much. A Piece of Cake was published that year by Random House, so I decided to do a little research to make sure I could trust Cupcake. Turns out, I can. And James Frey is an ass.

Happy New Year & Welcome 2019!
I am so floored and inspired by the participation in #ReadintheNewYear 💙I had such a good time ringing in 2019 with a book in my hand. I hope you all had a wonderful time, too!
Which books are you most looking forward to in 2019? I‘m looking forward to reading Michelle Obama‘s Becoming 💖
What are your reading goals this year? I‘ve set my Goodreads goal at only 24 books this year. My Year of Nonfiction! 💛
Happy New Year, Littens! I can‘t believe it‘s 2019. 🤭
Here‘s to another great year of reading and continued connections in this wonderful community. Now, back to my tagged book. 🤓📚🎉❤️

I liked this one, tho the story is somewhat slight. This mostly wordless graphic novel is about a woman who survives breast cancer but then loses her boyfriend and her job because of the mastectomy. She then accidentally joins a burlesque troupe and comes into her own. Sounds heavy, but the whimsical art and the effervescent personality of the protagonist bring a lightness to it.
First book finished in the new year! #readinthenewyear 😄

From the impeccable @hermyknee 😁:
I‘ve been go go go since before school let out for break. Nothing sounds better to me than reading in the New Year! Who‘s with me?!
Just tag your posts this evening with #readinthenewyear - I‘ll be here! Can‘t wait to see all your posts!
I‘ll enter all participants into a drawing for a New Year‘s Giveaway Mystery Box to start off 2019 with some fun!
For some reason I expected more from this book. The whole thing was really similar to the side stories from the Orange is the New Black TV show, and that's about it. I also feel like a lot of the characters storylines were unresolved... maybe it's just me, though.
As you can see, I'm having a wild and crazy night #ReadintheNewYear 😂 I hope everyone is having a great night, be safe, and Happy New Year!
