I will forever be grateful for all of your support in 2018, it was a messy year but as I grow from it, I think 2019 will definitely be better and hopefully you guys will still be here as I reconnect with the community ❤

And there goes 2018! It sure feels like there was a billion things that occurred throughout this year, whether it’s in my personal life or in the whole world. For good or for bad, the past is the past and 2019 should always be approached with our best foot forward. With the countless lessons that life has had to offer us in the past 12 months, we should always look to do better and remain optimistic in the things we do. One of my biggest achievement was to conquer my master’s degree and then to take on a PhD. Although I’m only at the beginning of this new chapter, alongside new and old partners in life who are bound to always be there when you need them, I feel like 2019 will be a fantastic year and I hope it’ll be the same for everyone of you out there too.

P.S. For those of you who didn’t have the chance to check out my year in review, I wish you an absolutely amazing New Year and hope you’ll find the answers to all the questions you’ll have in life. 😉

    I hope life lets you get back into blogging this year. It seemed like you got punch after punch last year so here is to you having a smoother year!

    Lashaan:
    With all your comic reviews, I don’t need to even think about reading any for myself 😉

    Looking forward to keeping up with Bookidote in 2019…

  • Trang: My best thoughts are with you! Here’s to a new year.

    Lashaan: The rhythm of the school year can be great for your mind a good feeling of completion. Best of luck on your continued studies.

    I totally agree with you about the new Spider-Man movie. It was incredible. I have a crew who I go to about 2-3 flicks a year. We caught it on opening night. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor on the way out!

    • Thank you, good sir. I can’t imagine a day without being involved academically. I look forward to my years as a PhD student for now! 😀

      I remember how early you and your squad planned on checking out the movie in theaters too! I can’t wait to see what Sony plans on doing next with the movie. Rumours of TV series spinning out of the movie are circulating nowadays! 😮

  • Great recap both of you, and based on the books you’re currently reading and that you have on your TBR list for January it seems like you’re in for an great start to 2019 too. 🙂 ❤️
    I really need to see the Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse film. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. Lashaan congrats on your masters, and Trang I hope 2019 is miles better than 2018 was.

    • Thank you so much, Beth! Hope that you’ve kicked off 2019 on the right foot and have great books queued up to start the year right too! And you totally need to check out Into the Spider-Verse. It’ll totally be the right movie to start 2019 with! 😉

  • Yess! Into the Spider Verse was INCREDIBLE!!! I read those comics awhile back when they were first coming out and really enjoyed it, but this movie was so much better. I can’t stop recommending it to people haha.
    Happy reading!

  • Trang, I’m sure 2019 will be amazing and you’ll keep learning so much from every experience you’ll have, stay positive, I’m sure great things will happen 😘
    Lashaan, I don’t know what to say except that I’ll always admire how you manage your time and life! I also feel 2019 will be a fantastic year filled with new adventures 😋 I’m really curious to read your review of Bloody Roses, I have no clue what the book is about but seeing the sentence “girls just want to have fun” with the names of George R.R. Martin and Terry Pratchett on the same cover is REALLY intriguing hahaha 😂

    I wish you two all the best for 2019 😘

    • I guess you could say that my time management is drawn from the principle that I want to make sure I have time for the things (or people 😏😉) I love. Can’t wait to see what we’ll make of 2019 together! 😁

      Hahahahahah tell me about it! It has all the ingredients for a real good time! 😍

      I wish you so much greatness that you’ll end up struggling to carry it all in 2019, Caroline 😜
