My reading month went a little different than expected, but it was still really good. I read some really stellar books too, so that made it even better. As shite as 2016 may have been for the most part, it was definitely more than decent in terms of reading.
- The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker (4 stars)
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (5 stars)
Review is coming soon, also, even though I didn’t read it at the same time as Fadwa, it still felt like she was my buddy reader because I could nag her with my reactions. Definitely make sure to check out her review here.
Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin
- Witch’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini (5 stars)
I legit finished it today, so review will have to wait.
- Gemina by Amie Kaufman/Jay Kristoff (4.5 stars)
I read this with the fabulous Marie and it was so much fun, review is also not written yet.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
What wasn’t on my initial TBR, but what I read nonetheless is the following book:
- The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (3.5 stars)

I feel like this month was not particularly great in terms of blogging for me, even though I definitely did better in actually doing some of the tags I was meant to post. I am tired a lot and on my days off, I mostly just sleep and binge TV. But looking back at this year, I think I did quite a lot. My Top 16 TV Shows post proved that I watch one heck of a lot of shows, but I also read 80 books and blogged at least twice per week all year round. So, YAY ME!
It feels a little odd to not have the annual WordPress report of the blogging year, but we might still get it? Who knows. I am mightily behind on my reviews, so those will come whenever I have time to write them. I only have 2 more weeks of work left and then I have other stuff to do, but nothing that occupies all day, every day. I wish I could say that one of the first things I will do is post a new chapter of Arcadia, but I have hit a terrible slump. It’s happening for multiple reasons, none of which I want to go into detail now. I could definitely see that part of it is due to self-imposed and unnecessary pressure though.
Final update, I watched Rogue One and loved it. I left the movie theater with such a heavy heart, despite a rocky start the final 42 minutes just killed it! And I also went to see Assassin’s Creed and even though I liked it (it was visually stunning), the story was very meh. They sure set it up to be a series and I think I would like to see a sequel just to make up my mind for good.
