book-courtship-11Even though the start of the New Year has long since come and gone, it’s never too late for a book tag! Thank so much to Kyleigh @ Coffeehouse Chatter for tagging me in the 2016/2017 tag!


1. Mention the creator of the TAG (David @ #theguywhosaidalwaysno)

2. Use the image that you find in this article.

3. Mention the blogger who has chosen you.

4. Answer the questions.

5. Mention 3 bloggers/friends and let them know through a comment on their blog.


Describe your 2016 in 3 words!

An uphill climb.

Write the names of 2 people who characterized your 2016!

There were so many that it’s hard to name just two! I owe so much to my friends and family, as well as the amazing professors at my college who have helped me better define my goals for the future.

Write the most beautiful place you’ve visited in 2016 and why you liked it so much!

Probably Mount Cardigan, which my dad and I hike every New Year’s Day. My friends and I also hiked it over the summer, which is always a blast. I’ve probably hiked it around ten times over the years and I never get tired of visiting again and again.


Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016.

My mom’s homemade cheesecake, hands down. SO GOOD.

Write the event which has marked you the most in 2016 (even global event).

It’s difficult to pinpoint one specific event, but I’d be amiss if I didn’t mention the realization I had in the spring of 2016 regarding what I’d potentially like to do after graduation college. Up until that point I had been dead set on going to law school, but talking with my English major advisor made me realize that pursuing my dream job would be possible: earning a doctorate and becoming an English professor at a university. This realization drastically changed my outlook on what I’d like to take away from my undergraduate experience as well as on my future in general.

Write the finest purchase you’ve made in 2016, and if you want link a photo.

I’m not sure what this tag’s definition of “finest” is, but one purchase I made in 2016 that sticks out in my mind is this amazing bookcase. How cool is that? It’s currently in my bedroom at home and I sorely miss it now that I’m living back on campus in my dorm.


Write 3 good intentions for 2017.

Reach out more, be positive, and be kind.

Write 1 place you want to visit in 2017.

I would LOVE to study abroad in Oxford this upcoming fall semester… fingers crossed!!

Write 1 plate/food you want to eat in 2017.

Honestly, as much breakfast food as possible. I ❤ breakfast.


How has 2017 been treating you so far? What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Thanks so much for tagging me Holly, I’ll have to get on this asap before we get further into 2017! Mount Cardigan looks stunning, what was the weather like (it looks warm)? And it’s so exciting that you’ve decided to do your doctorate! I remember feeling so thrilled when I decided to do my MA so I imagine you’re feeling the same! I hope you get to visit Oxford this year, I live in England so I’ve been a few times and it’s a lovely city – they have a huge Blackwell’s Bookshop!
