Gratitude And Books – A Weekly Blog Hop-Smash Up

I love blog hops, but lately everyone seems to have one on Friday! In order to participate in the blog hops I want to, I chose to combine two from now on, and will call it the “Gratitude and Books Smash Up”.

The two blog hops I am combining are the weekly “Celebrate The Small Things“, hosted by dear Lexa Cain, and the “Fast Five Friday Blog Hop”, which is book related.

Here is my gratitude list for the week:

Celebrate blog hop

I am always grateful for books, and this week I had a special chance of purchasing a few really good non-fiction books, I have been “dying” to get. They are three books related to symbolism and lore surrounding birds, specifically as it relates to Shamanism. I love birds, and have a special connection to them, due to my spiritual path, so I was so happy to be able to get these books.

Another book I purchased, and for which I am grateful for was talked about in a productivity web series I recently watched. It is called “Getting Things Done – The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” and I highly recommend it.

Speaking of web series, I am very grateful for Michael Sliwinski, the founder of Nozbe to have created a wonderful, useful and very inspiring series on productivity. It helped me a lot so far. Organization was never my forte, but by following through on his advice, I am actually getting better at it.

I am also thankful for the fact that the holidays are over. I love holidays, but I prefer to have a more uninterrupted schedule. 2015 feels like a  year, where I need to get things done.

Now off to the second blog hop “Fast Five Friday”!

This weeks Fast Five Friday Prompt asks us to write about the five most anticipated novels of this year. For me personally, the following five novels, are those I am looking forward to reading, some of which I am already asked to review, others I hope that I will get a chance to review before their release date. Either way, these books sound pretty great. Check them out!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

  1. Congrats on picking up some books you really wanted and for the help with your productivity and organization. I hope you enjoy all your new books plus the anticipated ones. Have a great weekend!

    (There were a few incorrect blog addresses on the Celebrate hop’s Linky. I visited every site, edited broken links, and it’s all fixed now! I look forward to you next post!)

  2. Hi Claudia. So glad I found you! I love staying organized – it is a challenge some weeks. Good deal on the books! I’ve got another blog hop, so reading will be off page for a day. I really want to read “Silent Scream.” Funny, I hate horror movies but don’t mind reading the books (smile).

  3. You did a mash up! It’s brilliant LOL
    I’m glad the hols are over, too. I enjoy them, but I don’t celebrate the traditional ones, so after a while I’m just done.
    Great to meet you!
