❄ Since I'm in Florida -no mosquitoes! 😂 and snuggling under a blanket to read when it's not 95* outside.

❄ ❄ The tagged novella (spoiler 📢 alerts if you haven't read the rest of the series).It's such a pleasant, quick read, that I pick up when I need to relax, even if its not wintertime.

💜 Something mountain-esque, Beautiful views and somewhere I can escape for a while.

💜💜 A couple smaller, light reads, and probably a 700 page+ tome that I could just dive into and not worry about leaving any time soon!

My #bookhaul between swaps and Christmas gifts this year. Not pictured, the #Thriftbooks or BOTM books I just ordered before my new year's resolution to read what I own and not buy anything new (to me). Don't worry, I'm laughing at the absurdity that said resolution will actually come to fruition as well 😄 😂 but at least I'll start off with good intentions! 📚
