2018 in Review | Books, Guinea Pigs, the Brontës & Everything Else I Got Up To

This is it! The end of 2018! I know I say it every year, but I really can’t believe how fast this year has passed. I spent the last few days of 2017 feeling anxious, worried, and unsure of the future. What would this year hold? Would it be a good year, an exciting year; could it surpass 2017?

2018 has been the year I finished education (but I’ll never finish learning!), the year I got a book deal, the year I made new friends and explored new places and found an inner confidence I never knew I had. It’s had its lows — stress and worry and a few too many meltdowns — but there have been incredible highs too. Thank you for being a part of it!

The Year in Review


Happy New Year to you — I hope 2019 is joyous and prosperous and filled with many, many books. Here’s to the year ahead!

    Happy New Year! Unfortunately, I was unable to read any of the captions because the text was too small. Any way you could make it larger?

    I’m glad you had a good year – I love your work with the Brontës. Jane Eyre was my mother’s favourite book, and going to visit Haworth was special to me as it was one of the last trips we made before she passed away.
