Utah Book Week: Favorite & Five

Utah Book Week is nearly done! Even if I haven't read more, I've blogged some so I'm calling it a success.

For FAVORITE, this one's easy. My favorite thing about Utah is the friends I've made here. When I started this blog back in 2011 I didn't know any of the people that now I consider some of my best friends. 5 years, two moves, and two kids later I'm really happy to have you all in my life!

Here's a picture I stole from Suey from last night's Book Week social.

And for FIVE, five things I've done/gotten into thanks to the local book blogging community.

  • NANOWRIMO - I never would have put down my little Spanish Club story 
  • Storymakers Conference - I wouldn't have even heard about, let alone attended, a writing conference 
  • Kdramas/Kpop - another thing I never would have heard about if it weren't for these lovely ladies. 
  • Picture Collages - let's just say I learned how to create very pretty photo collages on twitter this week. Life lessons right there.
  • Books and Blogging - I usually don't like any one thing for very long, so five years of having this reading and book clubbing and (very rare) blogging thing is kind of uncommon. It really is the people that keep me coming back to it. Saranghae, friends!


  1. I didn't do so great this week either but, yes, the best thing about blogging is the awesome friends I've made.

  2. I love this post. I love that you shared 5 things you've done because of our friends. That's such a great idea! And, I'm so glad that we met at the library that one signing! You're such an awesome friend and I'm glad you're in my life. :D

  3. Ha! I love that you included the picture collage making! ha ha!

  4. Interesting topic for a blog. I have been searching the Internet for fun and came upon your blog. Fabulous post. Thanks a ton for sharing your knowledge! It is great to see that some people still put in an effort into managing their websites. Come visit my blog at TumesKecil
