14 Things This Week

Here’s a look at some interesting things we read/ saw / thought / did this week.

Kim –

  1. Minimalism sure is a big thing right now, right? I totally subscribe to the idea of less is more and I’m constantly decluttering and getting rid of stuff. But I have to agree with these thoughts on Why Absolute Minimalism Will Never Feel Like Home.
  2. 10 Essential Edits to Help You Get Your Life Back. Number 5 is a big one for me. I don’t do drama.
  3. My dream job would be narrating audiobooks. I’m really intrigued by this list of Strange Narrators in Literature.
  4. I think the Cinder series is one of the best fairytale retellings I’ve ever read. I love these thoughts on what makes a great retelling.
  5. 7 Small Habits That Will Steal Your Happiness. I found myself ‘swimming in a sea of negative voices’ a few years ago. I quickly recognized that I needed to get out and never fall back into that again.

Tanya –

  1. 10 Bookish Websites That Will Enhance Your Reading Life has all my faves on there!
  2. How fitting that a horror book was the most popular book the year I was born – What was the most popular book in the year of your birth?
  3. Any zombie book reading person knows these are 5 of the Worst Places to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse.
  4. Bookish Lifestyle: 65 Posts I’m Planning to Write (and you could too) has you covered if you’re looking for topics to write about.
  5. The 5 Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Getting Page Views has some good ideas for how to get in the game (if that’s what you want to do).

  7. 40 Things to Track in Your Habit Tracker left me inspired about tracking in my bullet journal.
  8. Although I have a minimal style for bullet journal, I love gazing at pretties on the pics on these 20 Bullet Journal Instagrams You Should Be Following.
  9. How to Stream Every Star Trek TV Series and Film is just a must know for everyone – even if you don’t think you need to know it yet. Which is your favorite Star Trek series … or, dare I say it … are you NOT a Star Trek fan?

  1. These are some awesome links! I now have a bunch of tabs open that I have to go visit lol. And thanks for sharing mine 😀

  2. Wow, what a great list! How do you two find the time to search out so much good stuff online?? Lately, it seems like I don’t have any time for online perusing like that (and, yes, I just read 10 essential edits to help get your life back!!).

    The most popular book the year I was born was Herzog bu Saul Bellow, which – coincidentally – I just heard of for the first time this week! Weird. Guess I have to read it now. I enjoyed 10 Bookish Websites, too – again, most of it was new to me, so I bookmarked it for later reference.

    Thanks for doing all the work for me!
