A Year in Review — Hello 2014, Goodbye 2013!

happy new year

2014 is finally here if you can believe it (I can’t!).  In some ways, 2013 was the longest year and in others it flew by.  It was definitely a year of challenges, but it ended a lot better than it started.

PLUS, I found my place in the world when I came into this blog.  So, I can’t help but be thankful for that.  Here’s a little review about 2013, as well as my look forward to 2014!

200 Books Giveaway!

In January 2011, I found a little website called Goodreads.  I also got some gift cards and a Nook.  And my yearly reading challenges AKA obsessions were born.  This is my THIRD reading challenge, and this year I went big.

200 books in 2013.

That’s What He Said (6)

thatswhathesaid

The lovely ladies over at Chapter Break have started a new meme on Thursdays!  That’s What He Said is simple: Just pick a favorite quote from one of your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book!

Today I chose Elder from the Across the Universe series.  These books are SO great, so if you haven’t read them, you should.  My quotes today are from book three, Shades of Earth.

“I might have the whole world now, but it’s not enough if I don’t get to share it with her.”
― Beth RevisShades of Earth

“He blinks. Touches the side of my face, near my eyes. My eyes that are blue now, not green. With oval irises.

“I’m still me,” I say, because my greatest fear now is that he doesn’t want a hybrid Amy.

He cocks an eyebrow. “You think I care if your eyes are blue or green? I just care about you.”

― Beth RevisShades of Earth

“I’ll always come back to you.”
― Beth RevisShades of Earth

Guys, this book has ALL the feels.

Until we meet again,
