Short N’Sweet Book Review: Well Traveled by Jen Deluca

Welcome to the Short N’ Sweet Book Review! For the ten years that I’ve been reviewing books on this blog, I’ve written long, wordy reviews that, let’s be honest, not a lot of people are probably reading. I’ve recently  decided to shorten those reviews and get straight to the point – what is this book about, who wrote it, where you can find and a short review on what I loved, liked and maybe thought could be better.

Today’s review is the fourth installment in Jen Deluca‘s fantastic ren faire romance series, Well Traveled!

Books, Movies and TV Shows I’m Looking Forward to in 2023!

Sara’s Goals for 2023

It’s that time of year again – the time to make brand new goals. I know that people are often sort of pessimistic about New Years resolutions or goals but I like them. I like the idea of a brand new year. I like the idea of a clean slate. I know that there’s no difference really between December 31st 2022 and January 1st 2023 but I like the IDEA of it and I love making goals and I love making lists and I love checking things off. So here I am, again, making new goals for 2023!

Here are my goals for the year!

Sara’s Favorite Reads of 2022!

All right, let’s be real guys – I didn’t read much in 2022, not when compared to other years. In previous years, I’ve reached an end of year count as high as 200 books in one year. This year? Well, not so much. I ended 2022 with 51 books under my belt and a good chunk of those were re-reads. There was a LOT on my mind in 2022 – my wedding, transferring at my job and transitioning to a full time schedule, losing my grandma and my nana, and so much more. I also really, super got into true crime podcasts this year – True Crime Obsessed, Obsessed with Disappeared and Let’s Go to Court – and so that took up most of my time!

That being said, I managed to round up some of my favorite books that I read this year and I wanted to share them with you!

I’ve Been Watching One Tree Hill for the First Time…

And guys, I’m kind of obsessed.

One Tree Hill is like most teen dramas of the time, telling the chronicles of several teenagers in Tree Hill, North Carolina, mostly Lucas and Nathan Scott, half brothers who have basically hated each other their entire lives.

Here’s the thing – One Tree Hill was one of the many dramatic, soap opera-esque tv show that came out during my formative teen years and I tended to really love those shows, even as I progressed into my twenties. I’m talking The OC, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, the new 90210, Greek and so on. But for some reason, One Tree Hill was never one that I watched and once I kind of realized what it was, it felt too late to watch it.
