  1. 140 books?! Wow, well done! Sounds like you had a great 2018, hopefully 2019 will be just as amazing. Happy New Year!


  2. Ah, loved this post!
    You did some really cool things! ❤
    That bookshop boat thing looks awesome. I've never been there, but maybe next year i should finally check it out. 😀


  3. Oooh whatta year. I am particularly envious of the Vintage event you went to. Love their books. Love their covers. They are one of the few publishers that I pretty much can buy without even looking at the summary.
