Happy New Year! In whatever new directions you take, may you learn something, take on the challenges, and read a lot of good books.
Next week I’ll be sharing my reading goal (not shooting for a number this year) to go along with my “re-read” challenge. For now, I wanted to give you a heads-up on two other efforts you may see here and there on Reviews & Revisions. And, in an effort to help you procrastinate just a bit longer from entering whatever routine you left before the holidays, I’ve listed the top five visited posts in 2016 for your reading consideration.
First, my Christmas gifts included socks, stationary, and books so I think I’m ready to take bookstagramming by storm! Okay maybe not, but I will be featuring quotes from my reading more regularly (at least weekly for the first couple months) and continue posting bookish-ness for kids and adults. You can see the updates on the right side of the blog screen so check it out when you stop by here. Or, if you’d prefer the more direct method, find me on Instagram @rebeccarvincent.
I’ve decided to implement a “Saturday Snuggles” section this year in lieu of a monthly recommendation list of picture books. Every Saturday AM I’ll post a favorite children’s book for you to look into if you’re heading to the library or bookstore with your littles. Or, if you’re an aunt or uncle or caretaker or otherwise surrounded by, involved with, teaching to, or celebrating children, then these are great gift ideas, too.
If you were hoping for more substantial blog-reading, here are the top five posts visited at Reviews & Revisions in 2016:
- Book Note: Arranged Marriage by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
- Book Note (New Release): At Home in Exile by Russell Jeung
- What Does a Family Vacation to Walt Disney World Have to Do With Reading and Writing?
- Book Note: Writing to Change the World by Mary Pipher
- Burn, Rewrite, Reread
And, for a bonus, my post that received the honor of a WordPress Fresh Press is still my most visited post overall:
Everything I Need to Know About Swearing I Learned in High School.
That’s all for today. Good luck getting back into some kind of routine. Good luck with your goals. Happy Reading!
