Current Reads - Finishing up January

Hello Lovelies!

I love to read anytime of the year, but I thoroughly enjoy reading when it is cold outside. I honestly can say there is not much that I love more than snuggling deep into bed with a good read. Lets dive into what has been occupying my mind this past week!


I have recently had a slight obsession with visiting the library. I mean, why not pick up a free book on your way home from work? I had put my name down on the wait list for some popular reads and FINALLY they became available. This past week I have been absolutely consumed with "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. If you have not read this book, I suggest that you walk, no, make that RUN to your nearest bookstore, library, or e-Reader. This book has fascinated me in so many ways. I cannot wait to finish the book so I can actually watch the preview for the movie. I have a guilty obsession with books that become movies, so hellooooo, of course this book is a must for me. 

If you have not heard about "Wild" yet, please allow me to introduce you to what may become your next favorite read. This book involves a woman who has some unfortunate events happen in her life, and they kind of destroy her. She decides to embark on a life changing journey that involves hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, aka "PCT." I will not give away any more details, but I really do not think you will be disappointed!


Oh, another guilty obsession of mine! I could read blogs all day long! I love reading other peoples' writing and thoughts. This past week I have read more blogs than normal, thus spurring my reunion with my own blog. (Welcome back, BTW!) I will always and forever enjoy a good blog brought to me by either my nice, warm computer screen or my best friend, otherwise known as my cell phone.

Motivational Instagrams//

With the New Year comes New Year Resolutions! I am guilty of jumping on the "Lose Weight" bandwagon this year. College was not friendly to my body and I gained some weight that I cannot wait to sweat off! I find myself constantly browsing through popular "fitspo" accounts that can be easily found through Instagram. I love that the Instagram community can be so motivating when it comes to getting my butt off the couch. It is encouraging to look at these real-life people who have busy lives but still find the time to work out and eat healthier. If they can do it, then so can I, right? Well, that is what I tell myself as I push through what seem like impossible workouts or as I turn down the delicious bag of chips my boyfriend enjoys eating. Instagram users who blast their healthy choices/lifestyle on social media might be worth checking out if you feel you are in a rut.

News Sources//

I think it is super important to stay up to date on current events. The world may pass you right by if you are not aware of what is happening in the world. I try to read all types of sources in order to form an opinion of an issue on my own. Each source always has some "spin" on an issue, so reading multiple sources may help you to make a more informed opinion on your own. 

I think it is time to sign off for the night because I do love a good library book, but the downfall is the race against the clock/return date. This girl does not deal well with late fees!
