Starting this year

This year I’ve decided to take a break from my social apps, primarily Instagram, and instead focus on using the little down time I have to read all the books people have given me. Normally I give myself a million New Year’s resolutions, but I always seem to fail at all of them, so this year I’m deciding on only one.  I’ve also preordered this book, in hopes of getting a better handle on how much time I spend on my phone and why it affects me. Too many times I leave my IG feed feeling bad about myself. How to Break Up with Your Phone also details out the addictive nature of your phone and how it doesn’t allow you to retain real memories or really focus. But at the same time it’s a 30 day activity book to get your life back and out of your phone. The book comes in early February so until then I’ll be picking up my first book from my shelf, starting with Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and also blogging more.  I find that I’m more of my true self when I’m documenting and writing on my blog than on social media. Maybe I’ll come back after this break with a new outlook on how to use Instagram or other social apps in a way that I actually enjoy and gain inspiration from. All this with the caveat that if I start a book and can’t get into it after a few chapters that I can put it down and start another. I have so many more titles waiting in the wind at the library that I can tap into once I get through this list if so. But then there I go again, setting my sights too high!

Here’s the the line up, not in any particular order:

  • Outlander
  • Written in my Own Heart’s Blood
  • Wildflower
  • Steve Jobs
  • A Discovery of Witches
  • The Grapevine Vampire
  • Behind the Beautiful Forevers
  • The Alchemist
  • Jane Eyre
  • The Tipping Point
  • My Life in France
  • The Zookeeper’s Wife
  • The Reader
  • The Keep (finish it!)
  • The White Queen
  • City of Sanctuary (finish it!)

Wish me luck!
