Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & Reading Whatever the F*ck I Want

Did you all have an amazing holiday season? I hope so!

This year I signed up for The Book Blogger Holiday Card Exchange hosted by Leeswammes’ Blog & Stiletto Storytime.

It was so nice to find cards (and bookmarks and bookplates!) in my mailbox from some of the coolest bloggers around! Thanks so much to Laura from Devouring Texts, Chris from Chrisbookarma, Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity, & Laura from The Scarlet Letter. You know what I usually receive in my snail mail box? Bills. Credit card offers. Christmas cards are a lot more fun!
Hey look! Another cruddy iPhone photo!
I also participated in a Secret Santa Exchange from The Broke and the Bookish. Thanks so much to Krysta for the books and the goodies. Unfortunately she doesn’t have a blog and I don’t know how to find and thank her! If anyone knows my Secret Santa please pass on the word. Books and chocolate! Is there anything better? Nope. (Krysta, if you’re reading this: THANK YOU!)
Hot damn you guys! It’s 2013! Resolutions? I’ve never been good at those. I usually don’t bother making any because I hate to set myself up for failure at the beginning of a shiny new year. However, I do have a reading philosophy for 2013: 
I did sign up for one challenge. I broke down before the stinking year even began. It is a TBR pile challenge so I don’t think it counts! (Certain people might not agree. But those people are not the boss of me!) Other than that one? No more challenges. No no no. I’m going to read what I feel like, when I feel like it. I mean it! Check out the post, grab the button. Read whatever the fuck you want. 
Go forth readers! Go forth and have an ass kickin’ 2013. Read a lot, love a lot, surround yourself with beautiful things and beautiful people. You deserve it.
