2015 Yearly Recap

I can't believe this year is over! so much has happened! Well, the first half of the year was mostly quiet, but then came the other half in which I was 3 months buried in books getting ready to one HORRIBLE exam and managed to move TWICE in less than 5 months, finished correcting two old tattoos and got myself a new one! Got myself a new car, went to Germany with my mom, did a part of the "Castle Road" which was AWESOME, then went to Munich to visit my two cousin and a book friend which was also GREAT (Even though I was sick the whole day...). Later on I went to a few days off in the south of Israel which was exactly what I needed before my second move. 

Truly a year to remember! Though I always seem to wish for relaxed days like the one I was having the day I took this photo ;)

I thought about a project for 2016, not sure if I want to open a new blog for it or not.. it's mainly a way to remember and appreciate the following days. Basically it's pointing out for each day what I'm happy about, grateful for etc. I made a list, but naturally I can't find it hehe Since I'm not sure about the new blog I was thinking of making it a weekly post of collected thoughts, my resolves and insights into that specific week.

      I had a few "projects" this year - I finished all of the published work by - Joanna Chambers, Garrett Leigh and Cara McKenna. I also almost (!) finished all of Aleksandr Voinov's published work, but I still have 3 more. I added A LOT of Amy Lane's novels and plan on finished most of her books and series next year (though I'll still have a few PNR series for 2017 ;)). 

      Looking at all the amazing authors and specific books in this list I can't help but smile remembering how I enjoyed them. All I can hope that next year's list is going to be the same if not better :) 

      Happy New Year !
