2017 Wrap-Up and Reading Plans for 2018

2017-wrap-up.jpg

I love New Year’s Eve/ Day! It is always so nice to get a fresh start. I often get the urge to clean and organize my house around the New Year holiday. This includes my bookshelves. I often rearrange them and round up a box of books to be donated to the library. I have a really hard time letting books go, so these are usually books that I finally read over the previous year and don’t feel that I will re-read them. Or they are books that served a purpose during certain periods of my life and are now no longer necessary. Cleaning out and rearranging my bookshelves always makes me anxious for new reads and nostalgic for some old reads, too. Here are my highlights from 2017 and my reading goals for 2018.

July Wrap-Up!

kait_webIt’s hard to believe that August is here already. I’m starting to see back-to-school sales everywhere I go. The funny thing is that every time I see one, I do a little happy dance inside. Because I don’t have to prepare for back-to-school! Because I did it! Because I graduated!

One of the perks of graduating is that I now have much more time to spend reading, blogging, and working. Speaking of working, I am excited to announce two new services available through Kait’s Bookshelf – book promotion and product promotion. In addition, I am excited to have taken on some new writing opportunities this month, and I will share more on that later. I am also very proud to share the new official Kait’s Bookshelf logo. Honestly, when I think about all that’s happened in July, it’s a little overwhelming. It is an exciting time for sure and I will continue to share as I have news regarding the website, the business, and new services.

But for now, it’s time for my July wrap-up, a brief summary of the book reviews and blog posts I shared this month in addition to highlighting my favorite title from this month’s reads. So, without further ado, my July wrap-up!

Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoA couple of weeks ago, this book started popping up all over my Instagram feed and I became intrigued. The title alone is enough to pique one’s interest. At the bookstore last Friday, I came across this title and decided to see what all the fuss was about. After reading the synopsis, I was sold. I had to read this book! Evelyn’s story takes place over several decades and falls into one of my favorite genres of books – the golden age of Hollywood. I love reading stories set in Hollywood from the ‘40s – ‘60s. I love watching old films and imagining what life was like for the movie stars who made them. I have read several celebrity autobiographies from that era, and they are always fascinating to me. Although Evelyn Hugo is a fictional character, I couldn’t wait to read her story!
