First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! May this one be better than the last one and may this one rock. I hope you’ve spent awesome holidays with your families, friends or even alone if you were alone. Let me reflect shortly on the past year in my life. It has been a year of ups and downs for sure. I’ve turned 25 in March! I’m not should I celebrate it or not, but hey, let’s just put that fact down. I’ve went to an amazing kpop concert by my favorite kpop band B.A.P. Maybe you don’t know that about me, but I’m a kpop fan. It was in May and I traveled with my friend to Frankfurt. On our way back, we’ve met another fan and we are befriended with that girl until now. Talking about kpop, I started listening to an awesome band that I have never thought I will listen. Also, one friendship broke because I started to listen to that band. I have finished my school for a hairdresser in Germany (I’m originally from Croatia and it was my second school to finish). It was a big step for me and also a big thing for me. Finishing school in a foreign country while my family lives 1700km away from me. I have awesome family here and I had awesome support for the exam (support didn’t include my boss, sadly). Talking about my boss, last 2 months have been really mentally hard on me with her bullying me non stop and telling me how I won’t do an exam good cause I’m not good enough. But on 16th of July 2017 I showed her that I’m stronger and better than she thought I am. I also landed awesome job at the beginning of May (I think). A job where I can go with a smile on my face and am truly happy when I come to the office. The guys are so nice and accepting. I also had a loooooong holidays over the summer. Long meaning more than a month. In the summer, I also became an aunt for the 2nd time. This time to a cutest baby girl in the whole wide world (I may be biased). Also, I got a tickets for Harry Potter and Cursed Child in London (22nd Sept). Is anyone else there on this date? 😀 I started changing mentally as well, decided to work harder on my blog (which is my goal of 2018, but more about that in one of the next posts). All in all, this past year may have not be that good but it was good as well. I’m sure that 2018 will be much better year for me!
Since it is my first post of 2018, I wanted to make a list of the best books that I’ve read in 2017. I’ve read 27 books all together in the past year, all of them by female authors! My year started with “If I was your girl” by Meredith Russo and ended with “Christmas at the dancing duck” by Daisy James.
Top books read in 2017:
– Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur (review coming in this year)
– Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo (thank you Dora for pushing me to read this one)
– War Cross by Marie Lu
– The book of life by Deborah Harkness
– Celebrity by Melinda de Ross
The books are in no particular order (aside maybe number 1). Those were awesome books that I’ve read in the last year. Let’s see how will 2018 go. I have to set myself some goals soon but one of the posts will be about it only.
Till the next time,
