My Review of 2017
Hey guys I seriously can’t believe 2017 is over. It honestly doesn’t feel like 2018 to me. Anyway I thought it would be fun to do this. I ended up doing it last year where I reviewed 2016. Overall I feel 2016 was a good read of reading. I read a lot and found a lot of amazing new authors. I also read a lot of great books. I am super excited to see what 2018 brings for me. Hopefully some great reads. Let’s begin! Continue reading “My Review of 2017”
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books of 2017
Hey guys!! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday. This is a meme hosted every Tuesday by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish. This was a tough one because I’ve read a lot of good reads this year. I was debating adding comics to this but I decided to just stick with books. I know the year isn’t over yet, so if I do read anymore amazing books I will make sure to update this list. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books of 2017”
Hey guys! I hope you all are doing well. It’s time for me to post my Monthly Wrap-up. Since I didn’t post October’s Monthly Wrap-up last month, I will be including it in this post as well. I have to say October and November were good reading months for me.
In October, I took place in a readathon, Spookathon. I ended up getting in a lot of reading done that week. I was very surprised and also very happy with myself.
In November, I got a lot of reading done. In the last week alone I ended up reading about 4 books. I got really into audio books. I realized it helps me read a lot faster. I will be using audio books a lot more in the future.
Now let’s see what books I ended up reading in October and November. Continue reading “Monthly Wrap-up”
Down the TBR Hole #2
Hey guys! It’s time for another Down the TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! I really enjoyed doing last week’s clean. I’m hoping this week’s will be as successful. It’s hard for me to get rid of these first 100 books because these are all books I own but some of them I’ve had for years now and probably need to let go of. Here is how it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.
Guardians of The Galaxy, Volume 1: Cosmic Avengers By Brian Michael Bendis
This is a comic so this is something I could finish within a couple of hours.
The Cuckoo’s Calling By Robert Galbriath
This is another book that I have the first and second book. I feel because of that I don’t want to get rid of it. So I’ll give this a chance.
Mr. Mercedes By Stephen King
Okay but do you see this cover?!?! I love it!
P.S. I Love You By Cecelia Ahern
This is a book I’ve really wanted to try. I want to watch the movie after I read the book.
Sybil By Flora Rheta Schreiber
I saw the movie years ago in school and found it super interesting. I had to get the book to get more details about her.
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West By Gregory Maguire
I really love the play a lot. I thought I would wanna check out the play but I honestly think I’m going to pass.
Creep By Jennifer Hillier
This book seems super interesting and seems like something I would really enjoy.
Delirium By Lauren Oliver
I was rereading the summary of this one and it doesn’t really interest me anymore.
The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo By Stieg Larsson
This is a series I’ve heard a lot of great things about. I wanna give it a chance still.
If I Stay By Gayle Forman
I really want to read a book by Gayle Forman. I’ve heard a lot about them. This one just doesn’t interest me.
This week I made so more progress. I got rid of 3 books which in total now has brought to have removed 7 books in total which I have to say is overall pretty good. If I can remove a couple from my TBR list every week then that’s fine with me. I do feel it’s been a bit tough picking which ones to get rid of. I also feel like I have to get rid of something every week just because but I know I don’t have to. It is nice seeing my list slowly shrink. Already can’t wait to see what books next week tackles!
Top Ten: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t
Hey Guys!! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s themse is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start But Haven’t. I do have to say some series do intimidate me. I do try to stick with trilogy but I am willing to try out a longer series as long as it isn’t too ridiculous in the amount of books involded. I do have a problem finishing some so I need to work on that in general. Anyway here are some that I’ve wanted to read and need to stop putting off.
The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy By Douglas Adams
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo By Steig Larsson
A Court of Thorn and Roses By Sarah J. Maas
Confessions of a Shopaholic By Sophie Kinsella
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer By Michelle Hodkin
Stalking Jack the Ripper By Kerri Maniscalco
It’s crazy to think a majority of these I own but haven’t started yet. Have you guys read any of these yet? There are so many I want to start I just don’t know where to begin. I would love to know if you guys have read any and if so what you would recommend.
