Happy New Year!!! We are ringing in the new year with our grandbabies. The two of them are spending the night with Nonna and Gee-Gee. The past week was good. We had house guests and enjoyed our time with them. For the month of December,  I read/listened to 19 books. My Goodreads Goal was 250 books and I finished out at 270. Not bad right?   I had my first Netflix binge. Granted it was only 1 season and my hubby and I were both sick..but we can at least say we have done a binge! It was the Netflix original series OA. I would rate it a 7 out of 10. I will be back Tuesday and look forward to plugging back in and visiting everyone. I am feeling recharged and gearing up for the year ahead. Save the date for the Take Control of Your TBR Challange in March and the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge in April.

    Happy New Year!! I got to spend some time with my nieces and nephew in the afternoon for New Year’s Eve and it was great spending time with them, so I’m sure it’s lovely having the grandkids with you! 🙂 Hope everyone is feeling better!

    Happy New Year!! I finished my Goodreads goal of 100 with 133 (I always set it to 100 even though I go over).
    I’m thinking of starting OA, it looks interesting but I haven’t seen a lot about it yet.
    I hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend and a wonderful year!

    Happy New Year, Kim! I am looking forward to another year with you. 🙂 I know my mom was happy to be here to ring in the New Year with her granddaughter and my husband and I. My brother and his wife had planned to come, but my brother came down with conjunctivitis and they decided to postpone their trip down. It’s been pretty wet too and since they were planning on camping while in town, it’s probably for the best.

    I’m looking forward to reading The Bear and the Nightingale this year. I hope you have a wonderful New Year.

    Happy New Year! You read a lot of books! I managed to get my my secret goal of 200 even though I set my goal at 185. I might actually go ahead and set mine for 200 and just let Goodreads laugh at me at times cause I think I can do it….lol. 🙂

    Have a great first day of 2017! 🙂

    happy new year! That’s great you read so many books. I ended the year with 119 books read, which is more than I expected, so I am glad about that. I am looking forward to 2017! Have a great week!

    Happy New Year! Sorry to hear that you and hubby were sick. Hope you are feeling better and that you have a wonderful day with your grandbabies!

    Happy New Year Kimberly!
    We are watching OA as well and loving it. We binge watched all 4 seasons of Orange is the New Black last week. Binging is fun but when you get caught up I feel like that commercial “why even have a tv?” Lol!
    Glad to hear you got some QT with the grandbabies…pictures please (or I guess I should just check your facebook?)
    Can’t wait for your March and April challenges. I will be doing both, of course.
    I hope you have a great day!

    Happy New Year! Here’s to happiness in 2017! I love that quote. I think I’ll share it with my students when we see each other next. Congrats on your first Netflix binge! I’m glad it wasn’t as bad as it seems – a 7, after all! I finished my Goodreads Challenge at 55 books (3 over my goal). I hope you and the hubs are feeling better to enjoy the grandbabies!

  17. sjhigbee

    A very Happy New Year, Kimba:). It sounds like you’re starting 2017 in the best way – with new young life. You have had an amazing year with your reading and reviewing. Here’s hoping 2017 is even more successful.

    Happy New Year Kimberly. Spending NYE with your grandbabies sounds wonderful.
    And 270 reads is amazing. I haven’t made my goal, but I still read 110 books this year and I feel good about it! 🙂
