My Favorite…Diverse Read of 2020 (So far!)

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! In honor of Black History Month, I decided to make a prompt based on diverse books. I think last year, I did one about my favorite Black authors but this year, I wanted to mix it up. When answering this, be sure to keep that fact in mind. Anyways, let’s get into my favorite diverse read of 2020 so far 😀

Will I ever stop talking about this book??? The answer to that question is no but A Girl Like Her is easily my favorite book I’ve read all year. In addition to that, it’s also my favorite diverse read of the year. I honestly feel like I read my favorite book of the year already and nothing else can compare lmao. Either way, I knew I had to give this book another shout-out.

However, I do have a few books planned that might dethrone this book but I’m not going to get too excited because this book was just perfect. Is it bad that I already know that this book is going to be a favorite of the year? Lol Anyways, this was an easy pick for me.

My Favorite…Bookish Couple

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! It’s another “My Favorite” post and this one is centered around Valentine’s Day. Even though I’m single, I do enjoy love, especially in book form. There are tons of bookish couples that I love and so many that I wish existed IRL. Either way, I knew I had to feature a prompt about them so even if you’re single like me, we can still talk about love. 😛

If you saw my wrap-up, then this should come as no surprise. My favorite bookish couple as of 2020 has to be Ruth and Evan from A Girl Like Her. These two are the ultimate example of opposites attract as Ruth is rather prickly while Evan is basically a huge teddy bear. Watching their relationship develop especially from Ruth’s POV was so swoon-worthy. By the end, I couldn’t help but root for them and I’m so happy they made an appearance in the novella following this book.

What made me happiest was how their relationship started. It basically started as a deal between the two and it spiraled from there. While I don’t want to give away too many details, I thought that was such a cute way to start their relationship. Once again, Talia Hibbert is absolutely brilliant when it comes to writing relationships and I’m sure I’ll confirm that as I finish her backlist.

My Favorite…2020 Goal

Last month for “My Favorite,” I did a prompt featuring a favorite New Year’s resolution and some might say that this prompt is the same. While I do agree that they’re similar, I wouldn’t say that they’re exactly the same. Rather, a goal is something that you work towards for the entire year and hope you accomplish before the year ends. As for a resolution, it’s basically you doing or not doing something so let’s get into my favorite 2020 goal.

BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the “My Favorite” meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by Maureen’s Books, she agreed to let me take over.

As Maureen described it, “In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it. The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive.

At the end of each month, I’ll post the prompts for the following month so be sure to check back then!


For me, my favorite 2020 goal is to go on more adventures. In 2019, I did more than I’ve done in years including going on a train, visiting my best friend and generally finding things that make me happy other than my previous relationship. It was a tough year, but I think it helped me into a much better person.

With that being said, I have a few plans to make that goal happen. Firstly, I’d like to get a license as well as a car. I know I’m late to the party but I feel like I’m ready. Additionally, I’d like to go on at least one road trip by myself as a way to celebrate that. Lastly, I’d like to take the train at least once after I get said car as I really enjoy taking the train.

Overall, I think that goal is one that a lot of others can relate to. Personally, I’m hoping that this post holds me accountable and I’m able to achieve those things. Even if I get my license at the end of the year, I’ll be happy. 🙂

My Favorite…Moment of 2019

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this week’s “My Favorite” post, we’re once again looking back at 2019. In particular, our favorite moment of 2019 and honestly, I had a hard time, trying to narrow it down. However, I’ll get more into that in a second. 🙂

BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the “My Favorite” meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by Maureen’s Books, she agreed to let me take over.

February Topics

  • Feb. 5th: My Favorite…2020 Goal
  • Feb. 12th: My Favorite…Bookish Couple
  • Feb. 19th: My Favorite…Diverse Read of 2020 (So far!)
  • Feb 26th: My Favorite…Book Recommendation from a fellow blogger


Narrowing down my favorite moment from 2019 is hard. Even though the year started off rough with my breakup, it turned around somewhat quickly. It took me a while to pick up the pieces but once I did, I felt a lot better. No surprise that my favorite moment of 2019 was going to see the Jonas Brothers.

I know that not everyone is a fan, but they mean so much to me. There were days after my breakup when I didn’t even feel like getting up and just hearing their songs or watching a video helped me. I’m sure that someone can relate to that on some kind of level but getting to see them perform and meet them was just everything. That day/night will always have a special place in my heart. ❤

My Favorite…Book Series I Read in 2019

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this week’s “My Favorite” prompt, we’re looking back at 2019. Personally, I read a handful of series in 2019 so I wanted to dedicate a post to them. I know that not everyone is a series reader but personally, I’ve come to really enjoy them so hopefully, you guys end up enjoying this prompt. 🙂

For me, this prompt was pretty easy. In 2019, my best blogging friend, Ellyn and I buddy-read The Lunar Chronicles and it was so much fun. She’s read them before and it was my first reading them so it was interesting. Personally, I think it’s really fun to do that as we could compare notes and talk about our theories. Of all the series I read, this one was an easy pick for my favorite.

However, I do want to give a special shout-out to a few others: The Reluctant Royals by Alyssa Cole, Hoops by Kennedy Ryan, Charlotte Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro and Wright Brothers by Christina C. Jones. I’m pretty sure that all of these are completed now but it’s my bad if they’re not!

My Favorite…Anticipated 2020 Book Release

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to the 2nd My Favorite prompt of January and this one is especially fun. I know that everyone has a list of books that they look forward to every year. For me, that list has gotten a lot shorter as I either can’t think of anything or nothing on Goodreads jumps out to me. Regardless, this is still a pretty universal prompt.

This time, I’m going with Take a Hint, Dani Brown. At the end of 2019, I read Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert and absolutely fell in love with it. The relationship between Chloe and Red, the relationship between the sisters and Chloe’s characters were just excellent. With that being said, I was SO excited to find out that we’re getting a book focused on one of Chloe’s sisters this year. As far as I know, this is a fake-dating story and that’s all I needed to know before I was completely invested.

This is probably no surprise as I’ve been on a Talia Hibbert kick since I read Chloe Brown and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. My library has a lot of her books so I already have holds on a lot of them 😛

My Favorite…New Year’s Resolution

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to the first “My Favorite” post of 2020 and honestly, I’m super excited to be back. Even though I’m usually the only one who does them, I really do enjoy them. For this week, it’s no surprise that I’m featuring a prompt that centers around the New Year. Personally, I have a lot of goals for 2020 so I’m excited to talk about my favorite 😀

For me, my favorite New Year’s resolution in 2020 is to keep up with my bullet journal and not just give up within the first three months. I also have a planner that I’ve been using for blogging so I plan on making them part of my resolution. Honestly, I’ve become addicted to either reading bullet journal posts, looking at them on Instagram or watching videos.

While I’m not super artistic, I do try my best. Plus I’ve decided to create a spread around the Jonas Brothers every month. It’s basically my way of showing off how much I love them without having to annoy anyone. Either way, that’s the only one I want to talk about on here as my others are more personal. Maybe I’ll talk about them someday but not today 😛
