It’s been a big year for Broken Penguins. Launched into obscurity like all blogs (unless you’re Gwyneth Paltrow), I wanted to write about the amazing books I was reading. But I wanted a blog was beautiful – one that looked more like design blogs like this is glamorous. Yeah, I’m vain like that. Because words look good in a book but pictures look amazing on an iPad.
This was also the year I met a TON of amazing bloggers. From book bloggers, to mommy bloggers to bloggers who just plain like to write. And I’ve learned so much from them. I hope to meet more of you online and in person.
While I rarely read a book I don’t like (I usually won’t pick them up if I don’t think I’ll love them) – there were a few book I read this year, that really stood out. I would highly recommend these books to anyone:
