Amaris (amarisafloria.com) - I love that you don’t keep any stories to yourself — every book seems to make you think of someone, and I want to adopt that to my reading life! Yay for returning 🙂

April Books & Wine - Yay! I don’t think you even understand how thrilled I am to see this post pop up in my Bloglovin reader. I have missed your posts. It sounds like you had a pretty intentional year. I hear you about the library books taking pressure away — I am trying to get away from some review books and read more library books because it truly does feel like I am under no pressure. Anyways, welcome back!

Lori - I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see this post! Rather Be Reading was one of my favorite blogs and I was sad to come back from my motherhood fog and see you gone. I just added some books to Goodreads because of this post and I look forward to adding many more because of your recommendations.

Meg - I miss blogging. I miss reading. I miss you. Still trying to get my own mojo back in so many ways, but I loved this post and am off to search for several of the books you mentioned — especially Tell Me Three Things. I read Buxbaum’s first book yearrrrrrrs ago and adored it, so I’m sure I will love this one, too!

Looking forward to all of your new posts <3
