Links I Loved This Week – 02/04/2018

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 02/04/2018

Hope everyone had a good week – both life-wise and blogging-wise. I accomplished all my primary objective in terms of blogging but my posting schedule was still a bit all over the place (as demonstrated by this Links I Loved post up on a Monday morning).

Slowly but surely I’m adjusting my blogging schedule though and figuring out what snippets of time I can dedicate to Novels And Nonfiction now that I no longer have as much time to blog on weekday mornings.

This week was a busy one in the blogging world, between January 2018 Wrap-Ups, lots of February 2018 TBR lists (not featured but keep your eyes peeled for them) and of course Book Of The Month‘s announcement of their February 2018 releases.

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

I still blogged less than usual this week, but some posts is better than no posts. That’s my new motto. Feel free to join me in its use. I’m already making a ton of progress on other priorities I’ve set for myself in 2018, so if my return to blogging has had some fits and starts I think that’s okay.

I’ve actually woken up every morning this past week at 6am to take a 30 to 45 minute walk (which turned into over an hour walk on Sunday), and it’s been moving the scale enough that I made my weight-loss goal for January early. However, I used to work on blog posts during that time so it’s been a bit of an adjustment to make up the blogging time elsewhere, but it’s worth it so I’m going to figure it out ­čÖé

I also have kept up with my Les┬áMiserables Chapter-A-Day read-along and the new 5-year journal I bought to write in every day. It’s the little victories!

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

Hi everyone! I think I’m actually back from my blogging break for good after two weeks of posting just once per week. I have several post drafts lined up so I think I’m all set to get back to a normal schedule.

My break in Italy was very relaxing and restorative. I ate pizza al trancio to my heart’s content and read for hours on a daily basis. The cold weather helped to ‘motivate’ me to stay indoors and do absolutely nothing. I actually read 8 books in about 2 weeks and started several more. I was a reading machine!

The return to real life was a bit rough because I got the flu the week I got back, but I’m getting into a new rhythm for 2018 and am looking forward to everything I plan to accomplish both blogging-wise and not this year.

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Links I Loved This Week – 12/17/2017

Links I Loved For The Week Of 12/17/2017 On Novels And Nonfiction

I had a slower week on blogging and reading than is the norm for me, no doubt because it’s the holidays and there’s just so much going on between work parties, ordering gifts, prepping for my trip next week and catching up with friends. But no matter! It’s weird how sometimes these weeks when you have less time to work on your blog are actually good (even better than normal) in terms of stats and views. Who knows how that stuff works.

I wanted to announce that I will be on a blogging break from Saturday December 23rd through January 7th, so that I can really focus on spending time with my family in Milan. I might work on my blog a bit but not on a deadline. Links I Loved will be returning the following weekend (January 14th 2018).

I’m really looking forward to two full weeks focusing on family and myself. I actually love being in Milan going into a new year. It’s a good way to disconnect from life here in LA, reset and come up with a fresh outlook and new goals for the upcoming year. I hope you all have an amazing holiday season!

Links I Loved This Week – 12/10/2017

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 12/10/2017 On Novels And Nonfiction

I can’t believe it’s only 2 weeks until Christmas and also only 13 days until I leave for my two-week vacation to see my family in Milan. I couldn’t be more excited about it because a) it’s real winter in Milan right now, with temperatures below 50 degrees (while here in LA it insists being over 80) and b) this gives me the perfect excuse to vegetate and read to my hearts content while I’m there.

What are all your plans for the Christmas vacation? I need to start selecting the books I want to read on my trip, though hopefully many of them will be in ebook version and won’t require weighing down my suitcase. In the meantime, I have about eight million more holiday parties to attend before the end of the work year. Definitely going out of 2017 with a bang!

Before we get on to this week’s links, I’m currently running a giveaway (through Wednesday December 13th) for two gorgeous snowflake-themed Book Buddles (one paperback and one hardcover sized). It’s INTERNATIONAL, so make sure to enter if you’re interested (link in this post).
