I’m thankful to have had so many wonderful moments in 2017 and I hope to have more! The best moments are yet to come ❤
I loved every book in here, a lot!!!!!!! I think this might be the coziest group of books I’ve read.
Ling & Ting: Together in All Weather – It’s Grace Lin, so obviously I am a fan! I loved that she dedicated this book to her husband. Ling and Ting are always up to something and their episodes are always a treat. Here’s to the people with us in all weather ❤ .
5 Centimeters per Second – I cried reading this and I should’ve guessed I would. It is just like life to move too quickly and to pull people apart. I feel like both Tohno and Akari because I live in the present, but there is someone as important to be as Akari was to Tohno. I love Kanae too. I just want all the characters to find love and happiness. What a beautiful manga!
Neruda’s Book of Questions – I loved Pablo Neruda’s work ever since I read The Dreamer, which is about his childhood. He sure is a dreamer!!! He thinks of things we would never ever think of. His questions in 10 words can say so much than 50 words could. What a powerful and unique book.
Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus– This was a great book for kids and adults alike! Dusti Bowling is a future awards winner. Aven is my inspiration.
Everything on a Waffle – I adored this book! It is short and sweet, and I made the tuna noodle casserole from the recipes inside. It’s like Pushing Daisies, sort of.
I Am Pusheen the Cat – I read this while I was eating breakfast at a Taiwanese cafe. It’s Four Seas! after I came back from Knott’s. This was probably the most fun day I had this year before the hectic work schedule started 😦 .
I loved all the books here!
