Sunday Coffee

FallingforRomance is back! I am so excited to be blogging again. Grab yourself your Sunday morning drink of choice and let’s catch up.

I am a constant work in progress. Constantly torn between attempting to be Super Woman who juggles it all and feeling totally deflated. After many slow brewed mornings and serious thought, I gave myself some grace and realized it’s okay to let go of some things. I don’t like the pressure I put on myself sometimes, so 2019 is going to be my year of getting into the habit of really taking it easy on myself. Chill, for real.

My reading goal for 2019 is to read 75 books. Currently, I have read 35 and am really proud of how my reading is going. So far in 2019, I have been reading a mix of romance,  memoirs and poetry. I have been in the mood for sexier romances and travel memoirs like crazy. During the month of March I am focusing on cozy mysteries, with a romance here and there to switch it up a bit. With March Mystery Madness here though, I really wanted to participate. I am always hauling cozy mysteries, only to have them sit on my shelf for months at a time, so having this readathon is just the motivation I need to break some of them out.

A few reading favorites so far from this year have been Grip by Kennedy Ryan, Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole and Destiny’s Captive by the Queen herself, Beverly Jenkins. I am really trying to step more outside of my comfort zone this year. I think about how I may possibly be missing out On a new favorite book simply because I choose to play it safe so much. Beverly Jenkins for example, intimidated the hell out of me. I knew her books would really go there when it comes to certain issues and oh, she does! But everything I have read by her so far, I have absolutely loved and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for me. She has a way of transporting you to whatever time period she has created the story in because she strategically and tactfully knows when and where to place historical facts. Like a casual bomb drop and it feels so natural. I love the evolution of her heroines, and I haven’t met a hero yet by her that I haven’t swooned over.

I probably won’t go back and post reviews over what I have read so far this year, but I did finish a Melanie Harlow romance this morning, so my next review will be over it and I’ll go from there. If you’re interested in seeing what else makes up the mixed bag of what I’ve read so far, let’s be friends on Goodreads.

I am going to aim to post Tuesday’s and Thursday’s and of course my chit chat with you on Sunday, so be on the lookout for those. Let me know what has been going on in your world. How has your 2019 been so far?

  1. 35 books?!? *insert Souljah Boy Gif* lol that is fantastic. I’ve only read one Beverly Jenkins book and that was Captive. To say the least I was surprised by the amount of history was in the book given how steamy the cover and romance was.

    But I fell in love with the writing style and plan on reading more of her.

  2. Yay you’re back! Man, 2018 was legit hell for me, so I’m trying to make 2019 a chill year for me as well. Taking the blogging and content creating gig just one day at a time and not kicking myself in the rear end when life happens. It’s a nice feeling so far.

    The year has been one of new chances and not being afraid to put myself out there. It’s been scary, but rewarding. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for more good things to come, for myself and for you too! 💜💜
