1. Sell me on your favorite read of 2018

So apparently I’ve had quite a few favorite reads haha. But honestly, I think this would be the year of Steinbeck. So far I’ve read 3 of his works this year. East of Eden has got to be one of the greatest pieces of literature I’ve ever read. The themes he explores – love, religion, family – are all intertwined in a family saga with the beautiful (I’m biased) California valley as its backdrop. It’s so so good. And absolutely, without a doubt, one of my favorite reads of the year.

2. If you could read a book about any mythological being, which would it be and why?

Does Pegasus count?? Lmao mythology isn’t really my thing. Possibly why I never continued with the Percy Jackson series. That and I really thought there were hundreds of books in the series. But um, I watched Hercules as a kid and Pegasus was my favorite character. And Meg. Is she based on a mythological figure???

3. Who’s a character that has motivated you? How?

Anne Shirley!!! I first read Anne of Green Gables as an adult a few years back and I adored her instantly. She’s full of life and imagination, brilliant and hardworking. I could gush about this girl forever. She’s pretty much all I aspire to be haha. I’m naturally realistic (my friends say pessimistic), but like I said, Anne is a bright person. And her positivity is contagious. I feel happy whenever I think of Anne.

On a personal note:

Life has been unexpectedly hectic lately. BFF and I are planning birthday parties for 2 of her kids and their baptism. That’s 3 events in the span of one month. And one of those birthday parties is super last minute because the original plan went straight out the window when her soon -to-be 6 year old got some bad news. She broke her elbow in mid-August and has been in a cast since then. The doctor said it’d be off by her birthday. Well, that was a lie. Apparently her elbow keeps shifting and the ortho hasn’t discounted surgery as an option. (Torres, where you at?) Understandably, little girl hollered, screamed, and cried her eyes out when they put a new cast on her arm. So the original “birthday dinner plan” was canceled and bff decided to have a big birthday party for her to cheer her up.

Which means we’ve spent the last few days trying to get everything together. Thank goodness scheduled posts weeks in advance are a thing haha so I’m pretty sure no one has noticed my disappearance. Anyway, today I plan to relax and spend my day blog hopping and catching up on everyone’s posts 🙂 And if I do happen to disappear again within the next few weeks, well now you know why 😉
