30

In the beginning of the year, I was so full of hope that this year was the year I would be reading at least 30 books. 

Well, guess what? It's March and I've finished all of ONE book.

So here we go again - another list and hoping, praying that I will read all of them this year. I will cross them off as I go along and I have left some books out simply because I cannot find anything else I want to read as yet. Any recommendations, you guys?

1. The Sixth Extinction
2. Station Eleven
3. The Secret History
4. These Things Happen
5. The Husband's Secret
6. A Little Life
7. The Luminaries
8. The Goldfinch
9. Purity
10. Did You Ever Have A Family
11. This Is How You Lose Her
12. Mislaid
13. Not That Kind of Girl
14. A Spool of Blue Thread
15. Brother of the More Famous Jack
16. The September Girls
17. Seven Streets of Liverpool
18. Colorless Tsukura Tazaki & His Years of Pilgrimage
19. Pride & Prejudice

Autumn

Autumn

Sometimes, having four seasons is quite nice. You remember certain events based on the season of that particular year. Like, how Miranda was born on a beautiful spring day in 2011 and Alexa... on a stormy spring day in 2014! And how we've spent winters away on holidays (best time because Melbourne in spring/ summer can't be beat!).
But the downside, especially when you have kids, is when you have to constantly update their wardrobes according to the season and it's so incredibly expensive since they grow out of clothes so quickly. You need summer PJs and winter PJs, tights/ socks, sandals/ boots, singlets/ LS tops. 
So here we are, waiting for good sales! C'mon Witchery and Seed!
