It’s the beginning of a new year and time to set your new reading challenges. Regardless of whether you track your reading through Goodreads or via spreadsheet, whether you have decided to stick to a single genre or expand your horizons throughout the year, many readers have a reading goal they want to reach by the end of the year. How do you track your reading habits?
Happy Friday! I cannot believe another week has come and gone already. I meant to have this up a few hours ago, but I forgot to schedule it in -- oops! It has been pretty slow goings in terms of reading this week, but I'm honestly okay with that! I've been reading a fair few things and I'm relaly enjoying most of them.
had read two of John Green’s book before picking up this one and I have to say that I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with him. As in, I loved The Fault in Our Stars and hated (passionately) Looking for Alaska. Knowing this, I approached his latest novel, Turtles All the Way Down, with caution.
I’ll be the first to admit it: I bought An Enchantment of Ravens because of its beautiful cover. I don’t think I’m the only one either -- I kept seeing people raving about the book’s cover rather than the story inside. This ended up being a strange one for me -- I initially really struggled to decide if I liked it or not.
Happy Friday! The first work week of the year is very nearly over and I'm so glad! I've had some serious trouble adjusting from Holiday Justine back into Real Person Justine. Holiday Justine eats lots of food, sleeps all day, and stays up all night. Holiday Justine doesn't really interact with other humans.
I have been a life-long Batman fan. Ever since the days of the animated series, I've loved watching the World's Greatest Detective solve crimes, kick butt, and hang out with Catwoman. I've read a few of the Batman graphic novels, however it's just a format that I don't particularly enjoy. So when it was announced that Marie Lu would be writing a YA Batman novel for the DC Icons series, I was all on board. I read Warcross earlier this year and absolutely loved it, so I was thrilled to dive into Lu's Gotham.
Happy January! I know it's so silly to say, but 2017 feels like it flew by so quickly! I cannot believe that this blog is almost a year old, and things have changed so much for me since I started it. Now that the post-Christmas haze is clearing, I've looked at my shelves and felt a great sinking feeling. I have so many books to read! Between the library and Christmas presents, there are so many amazing books sitting on my shelves. I know I won't actually stick to this TBR (because I so rarely do), but it should really help me figure out what to prioritise in the month of January!
