Mailbox Monday (54)

Hey!  I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday this week!  It's been a while since I've posted one of these but I got some good books this week and felt like sharing. I've been doing well at not buying books lately but yesterday was my birthday so I had to get a couple! Purchased (for nook): A Lover's Lament by KL Grayson and BT Urruela The Nazi Officer's Wife by Edith Hahn Beer Tatiana and Alexander by Paullina Simons  I own Tatiana and Alexander in paperback but it is the only of the trilogy that I don't have in ebook format...until now. Bloodlands by Timothy Snyder From the Library: The Search by Nora Roberts The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs - I'm very eager to read this one. Blue Smoke by Nora Roberts What books did you get this week?  

2016 Bookish Goals and a Giveaway!

Happy 2016 everybody!  I am really excited for this year and all that it has to offer.  I have a lot of goals (both bookish and not) for the year and I'm excited to start working on them!  I usually share all of my goals here on the blog but this year I'm just going to stick with the bookish ones (mainly because I have so many!).  I will share some of what I am working on this year in future posts but I don't want this post to be six miles long so I'm leaving it out. 1.) Read 52 books - Typically, I read much more than this however, I plan to focus on different kinds of books this year and I don't want a high goal to distract me or stress me out.  If I read more, great but if not, I think focusing on one book a week is great. 2.) Read more non-fiction- I did really well with this goal last year but this year, I want to read even more non-fiction.  I am shooting for about 40-50% of my books this year to be non-fiction. 3.) #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks - Andi at Estella&
