Happy New Year friends! We had our first Facebook Live Virtual Coffee Date of the year this morning and it was a ton of fun! I was chattier than usual but it’s been a while and I had some catching up to do. Click the link below to watch the video:
VCD: Facebook Live – Jan 5, 2018!

I hope you’re keeping up with your journaling. It has honestly helped me keep my focus. This is my first time journaling first thing in the morning, instead of bedtime. I’ve even had occasion to write more than one entry a day on those days when my brain feels especially cluttered and my focus is dwindling. Give it a try, or don’t…just do you!
Here’s a handy dandy table with the books I mentioned as currently reading as well as my book haul. I tossed in some reading journal ideas for fun! Let me know how you track your reading, are you strictly digital or do you write it down?
Don’t miss my Early 2018 Anxiously Awaiting Books post. Follow this link to see all of the goodies, 2018 is shaping up to be a mighty fine reading year. What has you most excited?
We also discussed starting up a new Scandalicious Secret Vault Book Club group. I’m thinking we will hold discussions every 6 weeks and I can even host a Live event in the Vault. If you’re not in the Vault, follow this link and we will get you sorted!
Finally, don’t sleep on the TBR Reading Challenge. We are up to Round 12 and the magic list number is #9 – that’s Natural Law by Joey W. Hill for me. Are you participating in this challenge? Get to reading and let me know how your book turns out. My goal is to post about this round next Friday. As I mentioned in the Live event, once we complete the TBR Challenge, we are going to kick off a fun reading challenge from the mind of author Shannon Richard – it’s going to be so much fun, I hope you’ll join us!
We are recording our first podcast of the new year tonight, make sure you check back next week for that! I hope everyone has a fabulously scandalicious 2018! I’ll see you around the interwebs!
