Top Ten Tuesday: Romantic Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

It’s that time of year again. The time we celebrate all things love. Cupid’s got his arrow out, but I am happy to be treating myself for Valentine’s Day. I love books that have a sprinkle of romance, it makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Love is beautiful, but it’s also messy and dark. It’s a complex emotion, one that is ever changing and these quotes demonstrate the various ways to express love. Some choose words, others choose actions. Some quotes have been spotlighted before, but I’m choosing to spotlight them again because of how they make me feel.

January Wrap Up 2019

Here we go again. January has flown by in the blink of an eye and it’s like we never rang in a New Year. January wasn’t a bad month for me. I read and finished a book, started job number 3, and kept researching possible cities to visit. What sucked was getting back into the daily grind of work, more work, and then sleep. If it isn’t obvious, I’m craving an adventure. Luckily, Elantris was a brilliant escape, and Brandon Sanderson came up with a brilliant concept and introduced me to a world of magic and intrigue. It was a great way to kick off my reading year. Here’s what else I got up to in January.
