2016 Wrap-Up

2016 Wrap-Up

Looking back

It has been a great year for me for reading. I used to be an avid reader and then I found less and less time (and motivation) when I became a mother and a teacher-in the same year! Now, three years later, I am finally back to my old reading self.

Also, this year marks the first year I started blogging about middle school reading and taking pictures for a new Instagram account just for books. I only follow others who focus on books and this has helped me grow as a reader more than I can say. It’s so wonderful to find readers around the world who are as obsessed as I am. I feel as if I have found myself (emotional part!) and it has made me so happy!
