January Wrap-Up

I’ve said in my last few blog posts that I was going to try and post every week, but it hasn’t gone well so far! I’ve only written two posts this year, but I’m determined to get back to blogging. I know that we’re nearly half way through February (can you believe that?!), but I still thought I’d write up my January wrap-up. I managed to read 7 books, which means I’m ahead of my Goodreads goal, which is to read 50 books in 2017.The majority of the books I read were re-reads, and most were for uni, but the other books that I read I really enjoyed. I would have liked to have read a few more books that weren’t for uni, but I just didn’t have the time.

Top 10 Books of 2016

I know most people have already done their top books of 2016, and I was planning on doing mine within the first week of January, but I didn’t get around to it because of my uni work. But I still really wanted to share the top 10 books that I read in 2016. I read 60 books in 2016, and whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of them, these are the ten that I enjoyed the most. I didn’t give all of these books 5 stars, but all of these books have stuck with me. I’ve listed the 4* books first, and then the 5*, but otherwise they aren’t in any particular order.

Christmas Book Haul

Hiya!

Over the past two months or so, I decided to take a break from my blog.I started studying English Literature at Uni back in September,  and I found my blog became a bit like work. Bug after taking a break from writing posts, I found myself missing it. So I’m back! 🙂

As I’ve been away for a while, I wanted to do a post other than a review or a wrap-up, which I normally do. So I thought I’d share with you the books I got for Christmas. Most of these books I asked for, but a few of them were surprises.

Recommended Halloween Reads

I never really did a lot for Halloween when I was little, and I still don’t now, but in the days leading up to Halloween, I love watching a couple of scary films, and I always try to read a book with a Halloween-type feel. So, since Halloween is a only a few days away, I thought I’d recommend a few of my favourite books to read around Halloween.

September Wrap-Up

September was another great reading month for me! Even though I didn’t read all of the books that I was hoping to get too, I did read quite a lot. I read seven books this month, two of them being for uni, and nearly all of them were four or five stars. I also read quite a mixed bag; some poetry, some fiction, some non-fiction, and a play, and so I’m really looking forward to recommending a few different things to you 🙂
