Looking Forward + A Challenge!

Looking Forward to 2014 + Book Memories Challenge!




We've looked back on 2013 and though we will miss the love and laughter (and let's face it: tears) that we shared in the year that was heartache (aka 2013), we are so looking forward to the year of the heart explosion (aka 2014). Check out grownupfangirl's staff picks for books we can't wait to read this year, in no particular order, because after all - can any of us really just pick ONE?

Now, here's where you join the fun! 


We will be doing a challenge we've dubbed: Book Memories 2014. 
Here's how it works! 
Get yourself a pretty container. A jar, a bucket, a box, whatever you wanna do - have fun with it! 
Every time you finish a book, take a strip of paper and write the title of the book along with a memory you really loved from the book. This can be a quote, something that meant a lot to you, a character - whatever you wanna always remember about the book. 

Some of you won't read enough to have to check this out often. So, for some of you, checking your memories at the end of 2014 will be sufficient. With the staff here at Grownupfangirl/Ohthebookfeels, we definitely won't able to do that. So, quarterly we will post an update of the books we've read so far. Feel free to play along and email us with your lists or comment with your faves! 
We look forward to a great 2014 with you guys!
