Favorite 2019 Bookish moments

Hello inside a dog users.

This is my first time ever posting a blog of any kind and I am so exited! So earlier today I decided I wanted to start posting blogs on the inside a dog website but then I realized I didn’t know what to write about. ?

But then I thought I could write a summary of all bookish highlights of 2019. (Even though we’re already a month through 2020.)

5 amazing books I read last year (in no particular order) were:

  • Whisper by Lynette Noni
  • P.S. I like you – Kasie West
  • After the lights go out – Lili Wilkinson
  • A thousand perfect notes – C.G. Drews
  • Love and Gelato –  Jenna Evans Welch

These books above aren’t necessarily published last year.

My top five favorite bookish moments:

  • Early last year I used to catch the bus home, often I would read a book. I can’t recall the book I was reading but it was a really good book. While I was reading this book, I read something funny and started to laugh out loud which caused the entire row of people behind me to stare at me.
  • The next day, on the bus, I was still reading the same book, but I reached a really emotional part. Whenever I read something emotional, I always end up crying, and I always sit directly behind the bus driver. As the bus driver was looking in one of his review mirrors, he saw me getting teary and asked me if I was okay, that was so embarrassing.
  • Last year I was also an Inky awards judge, I loved every second of it! It was so much fun to read books then collaborate with fellow book lovers. And for anyone who is thinking about being a judge this year, I highly recommend applying.
  • The bookshelf in my bedroom is really full, so I started to rest books on my bed head, (it’s a wooden plank). One night, during one of my sneaky ninja – stay up really late readathons, I was trying to get a book from my bedhead and accidentally made the whole pile of books collapse down. A lot of them fell down and hit me on the head and one hard cover book fell against the wall with a really loud crash. I waited a few seconds, as you do, to see if anyone heard. Then when all remained silent I put the books down in a pile next to my bed and continued to read. Then five minutes later I looked up and saw my sister standing in the doorway, looking like the awakened dead. She said that she had been standing there ever since the crash because it woke her up…. I just started to laugh ?
  • Just before last year ended I started to read a bunch of children’s books I still own. I gathered all the books I had read when I was a child (ages 7-11) and started reading them all, this was really fun, because I got reminded of all the good stories that got me really into reading.

 

I am actually really exited for school, one of my favorite parts of back to school prep is covering all my books. I love the satisfaction you feel when there are no air bubbles in the contact. ?

So that’s the post, I hope it was okay. ?
