Binged this lovely story about setting boundaries when it comes to love, putting a career first and waiting for someone to become more honest with you. Mixed with magic and baked goods, I simply adored this story. ❤️

Space Trash Vol. 1 | Jenn Woodall

I read 49 books in December, lots of fantastic audiobooks and graphic novels to finish out the year.

Some of my faves:

-Lavender House
-Wicked House
-From Dust a Flame
-Space Trash v 1
-Invisible
-Enemies
-Victory Stand
-The Atlas Six

And rereading The Consumption of Magic again even if it broke my heart.

Let‘s start this years countdown with some top lists. I can never do top tens so I have 12s and a 15 for you today 😂😂. These are my top graphic novels read this year. I‘ll probably squeeze two more in today so hopefully they won‘t be amazing or this will get fixed later 😅😅😅.

Heartstopper: Volume 4 | Alice Oseman
post image

Okay I‘m late like always. I had to pick 3 books for January because I read over 60 books that month and these were impossible to decide from. Heartstopper literally is so good - my fave GN series right now. So This is Ever After is such a perfect read - funny, romantic and queer and magical. Iron Widow was such a memorable read as well!

Having one of those moments where I forget everything - stress has been real 😅. My bestie was hospitalized over thanksgiving with Flu A and is finally back to herself now, my dog is finally starting to eat again after two days of vomiting and they found nothing wrong in his blood work. I had my work review and I‘m just ready for a real break because I didn‘t get one during Thanksgiving. #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

I‘m loving my new home, having so much more space, a backyard and cannot wait to get a new shelf in place to start getting my library in order.
