What I Read in 2017 + Ratings

2017WrapUpTitle

Hello everyone! It is officially that time of the year! My first ever end-of-the-year reading wrap-up! How exciting!

I have seen a lot of book bloggers do this differently but I have chosen to rate every single book that I read this year – there are only 26, don’t worry! #1 is the best book and #26 is the worst book – I will include my ratings and a brief comment on them. And yes, I will try to not be too enthusiastic or mean. Continue reading

2018 Reading Goals

Hello everyone! I hope that you are all doing well and getting into the festive spirit. I just submitted my final deadline this morning and I am so relieved! It is finally time for Christmas!!!

With 2017 beginning to wrap up, I have been in the mood to start planning some goals for the new year. I have personal, academic, and book related goals so I thought that it would be fun to share with you today my reading goals of 2018.

My Goodreads reading challenge for 2017 was twenty-five books and I am very proud to say that I reached this goal in November, thanks to me miraculously reading six books that month whilst dealing with deadlines and traveling. There is a part of me that wants to be ambitious with my 2018 goal but I think that I’m going to be safe and bump it up by five books, so thirty for one year.

2017 Summer Reading Wrap-Up

Summer2017WrapUp.png

Hello everyone! Long time no see, huh? Life has gotten a bit crazy since my last post with moving back to uni and getting used to my new apartment. I tell myself to catch up on this blog every time I find some free time but then get distracted so sorry guys! But I am officially back and with far more posts planned for the next few months. Yay for being productive!

Today I thought that it would be fun to share with you guys a quick review of my summer reading wrap-up. I definitely didn’t read as much as I thought I would but making the most of my time with family and a break from school was priority. I actually didn’t realise until I started writing this blog that all of the books I read were either amazing (five stars) or average (three stars) which really isn’t bad for reading a total of six books but hopefully my year ends with high ratings.

June Wrap-Up

JuneWrap-UpTitle

This was definitely my best reading month yet for the summer. I read three books, listened to one audiobook and have started a new series. Thanks to traveling to pack out of my dorm and finding really good books, I didn’t have trouble with choosing reading time over sleep nor TV. It’s about time I got back into my reading habits.

May Wrap-Up

May2017WrapUp.png

May – My first month of summer in which I spent more time catching up on TV shows, eating and spending time with family than reading books. Oh well!

I started this month with hopes of reading at least three books – one that my boyfriend suggested, one that I have been waiting months to read and one that I left at home while returning to uni to finish the school year. Did I get through all three? No. However, I did get through two of them and 50% through an audio book, which is pretty good.

Summer 17′ TBR

Summer2017TBR.png

Having just finished my first year of university and having five months of summer, I thought that it would be a good time to add another thing to my blog: TBR’s (to-be-read). Although this may seem like a small selection for such a large amount of time, I have already had a week off and barely read more than 100 pages so I wanted to be reasonable. I blame Law and Order SVU – it is an addiction! Each of these books are fairly new to my shelf and are quite large. If I quickly get through these five, I will add a Part 2. I am hoping to continue these TBR posts next year, perhaps as monthly updates. Continue reading
