Happenings in Week 1 of 2022

This week has been a whirlwind of happenings and it’s so crazy to think about what has been happening here. Well it happened, we are officially done with the year 2021 and it was such a strange year. I think due to it being the second year of covid, and the vaccine being brought it, it was a year of unsure feelings. It’s like this adjustment year of transitioning slowly back to a life of normalcy. I have high hopes for this year though and have some fun things planned. So for this week any of the books that I happened to read were in the year of 2022. As many of you know I took a two-week break from both reading and blogging. Now normally the last week of the year I take a break from reading just as a way to refresh and renew and I normally have family events happening so this just allows me time and a break from it. However, even though I wasn’t reading I was SUPER busy. I have a NEW DESIGN!!! I hope you all love it as I do. But it was a ton of work to get it changed to look like this and has a whole different feel to it now. So feel free to explore around and let me know what you think.

Site Issues and Apologies

Hello everyone! I first want to apologize as my site has been down since Sunday evening. Working with hosting can be a pain sometimes. So what happened is my hosting (which I am with Bluehost) but they did an upgrade on my plan, and then when my monthly payment was...


  1. Deanna (A Novel Glimpse)

    Your new design is pretty! I love that you took time off to recharge. I need to do that soon. Happy 2022!

  4. Sam@WLABB

    The site looks great! Definitely hoping for more normalcy, but it seems like one step forward and two steps back all the time with this thing. Here’s to better things!

  5. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Great new design. That Sophie Lark duet is all the rage on BookTube. People are loving those!

  6. Jen

    Love the new look and fonts. So pretty and elegant and sexy! I’m working on being more in the now for 2022 and adding some meditation to my week. I hope that will help me stay in the present and not worrying about what is to come.

    Loving the new web design! It fits with the Romance theme nicely <3 Glad you had some time to recharge and gear up for 2022! After a rough end to 2021 at work, I’m trying to shake off the bad energy and think positive for the new year.
