What I Read in 2017

TweetI actually completed the number of books in my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the first time ever. I think the PopSugar one is too ambitious for me, but is a nice way of trying new genres.

What I Read in 2016

Review: Go! Girl Guides Thailand

Tweet I’m always searching for a new guidebook and I really have no brand loyalty. Peruse my bookshelf and you will find travel titles from every publisher, from Lonely Planet to Fodor’s to Frommer’s to Let’s Go, which is why I approach each travel guide with a critical eye. When the ladies of Go! Girl […]
