  1. Hallo, Hallo Audra!

    :) As you know, I feel as disconnected as you do - I miss visiting you, miss commenting on your bookish life and have chosen to stay mindful of this throughout 2018 by joining the #Commenting365 challenge - I'm taking it a few different ways - revisiting my bookish friends, re-discovering the bloggers on my List via Twitter and visiting the 365 bloggers in the challenge itself - that spreadsheet Nori built for us is super awesomesauce! :)

    I wanted to drop by the first chance I had to your blog - as I couldn't wait to start reconnecting -- I do admit, I've been visiting your Insta feeds time to time - watching Unabridged Toddler grow and find his own #booklove along the way. I love how you capture your life and how you share it.

    One review which stood out to me today from this list is the 'Secret History of Jane Eyre' -- I'm determined to finish reading Eyre this year - I had intended to read it for January, but between the three RALs I found unexpectedly (technically, one is a carry-over from last Autumn) I'm unsure if January is as good as a fit as I once thought.. one thing I know, it shall be read before my 5th Blogoversary as I wanted to read it in either Autumn or Winter; mine comes round in Spring! Oy.

    I can honestly say I haven't heard of these previously - I'll have to revisit your list and click over to read your thoughts -- seeing if I can add any to my own TBR. I have been adding more Non-Fiction to my monthly reads - not yet reflected in my reviews as they post, as I've been delayed finalising my thoughts on most of them, but each month moving forward will be nearly 50% Fiction to 50% Non-Fiction - plus, I want to truly seek out more audiobooks as it helps me reduce my migraines (as I'm not one of those who can alternate with ereaders).

    Looks like you had a bookishly happy year! Congrats!! :) I will be sorting out my yearly reads & favourite stories closer to March. I'm at least two years behind on doing that, too! Oy. Here's to a New Year, with new stories to fall madly in love with and hours of enlightenment for us both! Cheers, dear friend. Sorry I've been absent until now,... PS: I did tell you at some point how much I love your new layout, right!? It rocks!! :)
