I bet you’re excited to see yet another post about new years resolutions. *Cough*
Hey, I actually enjoy reading these posts because they ✨inspire✨ me to actually 🌠aspire 🌠 (those words rhymed. I am poet.). I also feel a sense of accountability whenever I make these posts. When I inevitably begin to regress later in the year, I’ll be reminded of this post and everyone who saw it. I’ll be forced to pull myself together because I told you all about my goals and want to have something to show for 💪.

Every book I read is a unique experience. Some of these experiences are memorable for being enlightening and many simply from the joy and comfort they brought to me.
