What I Want From 2018

I’ve spent the last couple of days thinking about my plans for the New Year, and I think I have it figured out. Not completely, of course, who knows what 2018 has in store for any of us, but I think I have the gist of it figured out.

I’ve always thought of myself as being an avid reader, and I am, but sometimes I think that passion fades, because other things get in the way. And while those other things aren’t bad things, they’re distracting me from something that’s always been a huge part of my life.

So this year, I plan to cut out at least an hour of time each day to read. I don’t care if it’s one hour straight of reading or spread all throughout the day, I just want to take the time to read. Not just for the sake of reading a book a week, but because I love it, and I’ve realized that in the last year I let reading fall to the wayside because I didn’t make enough time for it. I’m not going to let that happen again.

Whatever goals you have 2018, whether related to books and reading or not, I wish you the best.



a reintroduction

Several months ago I created this blog, since then I’ve made one post. I just read it a few minutes ago and I’m very tempted to delete it (and I probably will, so don’t bother looking for it, okay?). It’s very cringe worthy. That said, I intend to be more active on this blog, posting reviews and whatnot, so I think I should tell you a bit about myself, just to break the ice.

My name is Marin, currently 16 years old, and living in the United States. My favorite color is either red or beige (it depends on the day), I have three dogs, a couple of siblings, and a whole lot of books. I run the Instagram page @untoldfable, I created that page in the fall of 2016, after ogling at the Bookstagram community for a while. Since starting that page, I’ve found myself in love with photography, more in love with books, and an urge to write more.

I would write a bit more about myself, but I have things to photograph and books to read. So farewell until I find something new to post about, which should be soon!
