“Many of us learn to construct a clear and precise vision of what we want, but we’re never taught how to enjoy what we actually have. There will always be more victories to strive for, more strangers to charm, more images to collect and pin to our vision boards. It’s hard to want what we have; it’s far easier to want everything in the world.” ― Heather Havrilesky, What If This Were Enough?

Happy Friday y’all! I just wanted to pop by and wish you all a wonderful weekend! (The weather has been all but picture friendly the whole week, so a photo of my book cart will have to do today! Not that I’m complaining, I would post about it every day if I could, haha)
I know I will have a great one as I started reading the sequel of ‘Beartown’ yesterday! And only 60 pages in all the feelings are gushing right back at me again. I already feel like this will be a ride just as emotional as the previous one.
I’ve been slacking on my reviews lately, but will try to catch up in the following week. I especially want to talk more about how I loved ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ and ‘The Nightingale’. Two of my favorite reads so far this year!
QOTD: What are you guys reading this weekend? ...
