March Wrap up/April TBR (Arc-ish Readathon) | 2017

March has been quite a successful reading month for me. In fact, I think this may be the most books I have ever read within one month. Wooohooo! Achievement accomplished. This is brilliant, especially following of the lull that occurred in February, where I only read one book – which I will feature down below.

Over all, March has been a successful month. Despite my two week hiatus from blogging, this month has allowed me to consider the direction I wish to take with this blog. Although books will remain my primary focus, I will also be creating posts that will discuss diversity in life and literature and the advice that I have collected over the years – things I wish I knew years ago. This month has allowed me to plot new posts, as well as conjuring up the confidence to talk more about what I wish to discuss and represent.

So, let’s get on with my reading wrap-up for February and March, and A Very ARC-ish Readathon TBR. Continue reading “March Wrap up/April TBR (Arc-ish Readathon) | 2017”

Christmas Book Haul | 2016

As I have gotten older I’ve found it harder and harder to decide what I would like for Christmas. Especially when it comes down to which books I am going to ask for. Like many people I develop quite the Goodreads TBR pile throughout the year, making it nearly impossible to narrow down a handful of books for me to ask for. But, somehow I managed to do just that. This is a list of all the books I got for Christmas, or around Christmas, this year.

*Note: the photos below are taken from the internet as the lighting in my house is terrible so I won’t be using my own.*

The Books I’m Taking to Univeristy

If you follow me on social media, you will know that I am going to University at the end of this week. I cannot wait. However, there is one issue. What books will I take with me? I have hit the hardest stage of packing, because now I must decide which handfull of book will adorn my single shelved accommodation. Of course, the require reading books and kindle books are excluded from this list.

books-to-uniThe books I will be taking:

  • I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore – it is the beginning of an epic series, which I could read over and over again. And, will probably be the novel I turn to when I feel home sick.
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky – My go to book when asked “what is your favourite novel?”. I adore the characters, especially Charlie’s perspective. Plus, this novel made me feel all the feels.
  • Heir of Fire & Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas – Empire of Storms recently landed in the shops and I have yet to read Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows.
  • Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman – This book came out last year and all the reviews appear positive. I don’t actually know much about this novel aside from that.
