My Favorite Reads of 2019

My Favorite Reads of 2019

Ah, 2019. Another year (almost) gone. It was… a time. Some of it was great, some of it not-so-great. But you know what was great? The number of books I managed to read!

50 books, y’all! I’m so proud of myself! Just a couple years ago, I was barely managing to read 10 books, if that. So the fact that I managed to hit 50 in 2019 makes me so happy. I love reading and I feel like I missed out on so much during the time where I barely had the energy to pick up a book.

I also really enjoyed having this blog to share what I read. While I may not have managed to write a post every single month, I still blogged about everything I read. That’s another feat I’m proud of! I’ll never call myself a real book blogger (I couldn’t degrade the real book bloggers by doing that) but writing about books is fun.

Anyway, here’s everything I read in 2019 and my favorites of the bunch!

Simone Read What? – December ’19

Simone Read What? – December ’19

I did it, y’all!! I hit my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal! Actually, considering I read more than my goal, I totally smashed it. Heck yes! Gimme a high five!

I’d like to thank the several 4-hour long train rides I had this year, the delayed flights, and the ebook section of my public library. Those are the MVPs that allowed me to read 50 books this year. Without them, I never would have gotten this far.

Ahem, anyway.

I’ll be doing a round-up post for all of my favorite reads of 2019, but for now, here’s what I read in December!

Vacation Diaries: Vancouver 2019

Vacation Diaries: Vancouver 2019

I can hardly believe we’re in the last month of 2019. This year went by so quickly and yet so slowly at the same time. Some months felt like eternities, and some were over before I could even blink. But I guess that’s life, right? I’m literally describing every year. Time isn’t real!!! It’s all just a Jeremy Bearimy!!!

Existential crisis aside, there were so many things this year that I meant to do but just never got around to. Blogging about the adventures I had was one of those things that I meant to do. Whoops. But I’m a busy lady, okay! Still, I wanted to share about the places I went and the things I saw, so here we are.

In August of this year, I visited Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Spoiler: it was amazing and I would love to go back again. To be honest, I kinda want to move there. Who wants to help me look into the process of immigrating to Canada from the US? Anybody?

Anyway, here’s what I did, saw, and ate while I was there!
