    Reading Recap 2018

With so many books read in a year, sometimes I forget some of the books that I really enjoyed. It’s also interesting for me to see how my reading habits have changed.   5-Star Rated Books of 2018 I started rating more books with 5-stars on Goodreads. These are the books that I’ve read more than once and loved or will most likely read again in the near future.

    In Which I Over-Analyze and Pretend I’m Mer and Anna

    Caitlin says I’m probably over-analyzing but I don’t think I am. Fine, I’ll bring up the Katy Perry metaphor again. I feel like if it’s just the two of us, I can talk to him a lot easier than when adding a certain friend into the equation. Which sucks. Yeah, he’s hot and then he’s cold. Maybe they’re just better friends? I did just start talking to him less than a week ago. But I admit that I’m jealous of the attention that she gets. But maybe he actually is flirting with her? But then again, we were totally joking around during lunch today. … Okay, I’m over-analyzing. But still.…
