I BAWLED MY FREAKING EYES OUT FOR A GOOD HALF HOUR IN THE CAR ON OUR WAY HOME FROM OREGON AND MY FAMILY THOUGHT I WAS DYING OR SOMETHING BECAUSE I DON'T CRY A LOT WITH BOOKS BUT FOR GODDESS' SAKE, THIS BOOK MADE MY CRY.
Hmmm... maybe The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler. I mean, not that it's been super overlooked, since it IS Sarah Ockler, but I think it deserves a lot more recognition than I've seen it receive.
Definitely my post called Cutting Ties. I wrote a very personal post in August about a friendship I had that many of you responded to and I was so touched by the kind words and advice I received. It truly showed me just how kind bookish people can be and how close this vast blogging community is when one needs it to be.
I totally loved the 15 day book blogging challenge! ... but I didn't finish it, due to BUSY LIFE STUFF. UGH, story of my existence. However, other than that, I don't really know! I didn't get the chance to go to any book signings this year *sob* so... I guess the 15 day challenge!
NO. I'M SUCH A FAILURE WHEN IT COMES TO CHALLENGES. *Sobbing*
So, that's it for now! I hope you all have an incredible year in 2014 and read lots! Thank you all for sticking by me during the breaks and giving me a reason to come back to the blogosphere every time I got discouraged. I love all of you so much and can't wait to see what this year brings!
