I've created a short list of all the books I am dying to read this year. I'm hoping to be able to sit down with a book more and take a break from social media, netflix, and games for a bit. Sometimes it's good not to be staring at a screen... well, if you don't count your Kindle.

1. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner

3. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

4. My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni

5. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

What's some of your books you plan on reading this year? Did any of mine make your list?
Have an awesome day! Until next time guys. :)

10 Favorite Things About Winter♡

One of my favorite things about winter time is the laid back, laziness of the season. Yes, I love Christmas too but there's much more to it. I'm able to get away with being closed up indoors a lot easier when it's freezing outside. So here are some of my favorite things about winter.

S l e e p i n g . You can ask my husband and he will tell you that I go to bed early just because I am that excited to go to sleep. I might miss out on late night things, but I'd rather be curled up in bed with my dog any day. Especially when our house is normally on the chillier side, I can stay in that warm bed all morning!

R e a d i n g . This is the time of year when I really get some reading done. Oh how I wish we had a fire place in our house! Although I might not get anything accomplished if we did!

E a t i n g . There's no doubt that some of the best food your family cooks is around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Eggnog also comes out along with Christmas popcorn in those huge buckets... oh and mini reeses. Lots of mini reeses.

B u n d l e d . Okay, now's the time I can totally get away with a big baggy sweatshirt. All of my cute clothes are winter. Adding a scarf and a hat easily makes your outfit more fashionable without trying too hard. Also, boots. Warm winter boots are a favorite!

M a k e u p . I really prefer darker makeup. Smokey eyes and a berry lip just screams that it's cold out. It's also a good reason to buy that dark lipstick even though you buy one every year. I've been loving a dark purple lip this season!

T e l e v i s i o n . Yes, now's the time to stay cuddled up on the couch and watch endless shows on Netflix and Hulu. Since it's gotten cold out, we've been watching Sons of Anarchy almost every evening. Can not get enough of that show!

S n o w . Obviously, but being as I'm from Texas we don't get to see it every year. Ever since I've moved up north, it's every year, multiple times! I don't like to venture out in it, but I prefer to look at it from inside my nice warm house while I drink a warm beverage.

D e c o r a t i o n s . Winter has the best decorations. We never decorate our towns as much as we deck them up for the holidays! Businesses and houses are covered in lights and I love to drive around at night and look at them all. We got our first lights for our house this year, can't wait to add more to our collection!

S h o p p i n g . Um, my wallet is already a lot thinner than I planned! I have a love/hate relationship for what this season influences me to purchase. They DO have a few good deals if you beat everyone to them, but I prefer to do a lot of online shopping. Staying in and shopping online when it's cold outside is so lovely!

T i m e . Is it just me or does the end of the year kinda slow down a bit? When it gets colder out, I feel as though time slows down a bit. The days are longer and I seem to be able to get a few more things accomplished.

There are my ten favorite things about the Winter! It's definitely my favorite time of the year. What's something you like about Winter? Until next time guys! xx
