The problem with me and with reading books is if there’s a book that I disliked, I stop reading for a while. This is exactly what happened to me this quarter. I still managed to read three books and I’m still way ahead of my Goodreads challenge but it’s a bit disappointing since I still think reading is the best past time there is.
This 2019, I’ve decided to start a reading challenge on Goodreads. My goal is to finish twelve books. I know it’s a very safe goal (one book per month) but I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by my goal and end up not enjoying what I’m reading. Anyway, the first quarter of 2019 went extremely well. I’ve read four books and I’m excited to share with you some of my thoughts about it.
My husband and I went to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale which was recently held here in Manila. The real reason I wanted to go was because of cookbooks. Since I started watching Epicurious videos on YouTube, I wanted to improve my cooking skills and broaden my knowledge about it.
Married life is leaving me with tons of things on my to-do list. I have a list of blog posts to write since late August that I still haven’t written and I still have books waiting to be read. My old single life had weekends to relax and do things but my new married life has weekends for chores and responsibilities. I love it, I really do but sometimes, I do miss my single life – especially when I see my blog and all my books slowly being forgotten because real life needs to be lived.
