We spent a lifetime chasing firefly dreams

Jaxson and I devised a life list when we were kids in Holmes Chapel. Just a few things on that list:

2019 Badass Books Reading Challenge

With 6 new categories!

One thing I love about these reading challenges is that it’s opened the door to books I likely would have never have chosen to read and introduced me to authors I wasn’t familiar with and I love to feel like I’m learning and growing as a reader.
I read a lot of really great books in 2018 and I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store! Next December I’ll come back and tell you what each of my selections was and do some quick mini-reviews. You can check out the results of my 2018 Badass Books Reading Challenge here.
So keep scrolling and find out what’s in store for your 2019 Badass Books Reading Challenge!

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
