Happy New Year Readers! I hope each of you welcomed 2013 with something new to read. During this time of year we hear a lot about resolutions and goals we'd like to accomplish for ourselves. Though I try my best to set some of my own, I don't always follow through with them as the year progresses. However, I do have something new I wanted to formally introduce to my blog. As you've probably already seen in the last few months, I've been branching out and reading more than just young adult fiction. To my surprise, I've been reading more adult romances (mostly contemporary and a few historical). Since I've read quite a few of these books that I really enjoyed, I thought I'd continue reviewing them here on the blog. Like I said before, I've already begun doing so... you may have seen me mention a book or two in the Lucky Harbor series, hehe. But I wanted to let my readers know that I plan to continue with this and will be introducing more adult titles on my blog as well.
If you're a reader of the adult contemporary (or historical fiction) genre, feel free to give me some recommendations! I am still very new to what's out there and appreciate any suggestions on what to read next. To give you an idea of what I've read and enjoyed so far, here are the reviews of the adult books I've read and reviewed:

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman
