It’s February and I am already behind in my posting schedule xD Bye bye new year resolution to be more organised here’s hoping Feb will be a better month for me.
January ended up being really crazy so I didn’t read as much as I would have liked or wrote as much as I would have liked but HEY there’s always next month right?
The Percy Jackson series! This series really started off as a meh I may be a bit old for this but I continued on and I am so happy I did. Book three really picked things up for me and I loved how Percy grew and the story got darker. I’ll be posting my series review soon!
I also read A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and oh my god it is everything I want from a book. The illustrations are amazing and done in gray scale which fit the story perfectly, the story itself is deep and full of meaning, the Monster is part scary part wise old tree that deals in the truth and rights. I’ll have a full gushing review for this one as well because wow I loved it.
and thats it *collective gasps* I know I only read 6 books and they were all pretty small! I told you guys I had a bad reading month.
If you’re new around here I usually read 10+ books a month so I’m pretty disappointed in myself.
I did start a lot more books but just put them down and started something else so I have a feeling I was in a little bit of a slump.
One thing I am proud of myself for is my hauling I am reducing the amount of books I buy to try to stop my TBR from coming to life and assassinating me. It’s working…sort of here what I got:
So yes there is 8 books here BUT I only bought two: Valentine and The Sidekicks the rest are Ebook and Physical arcs that I couldn’t resist and I need to read right now. So my TBR is growing more than I’m reading but hopefully I can catch up this month.
As for life stuff January was a great bookish month! I went to The Ya Room’s first picnic and it was so much fun!If any of you guys are ever in Melbourne make sure you hit us up because I dare say we have the best bookish people (okay I may be a little bias) If you can spot me 10 points to you.
I also went to the Penguin Showcase and meet some Authors and learnt what new 2017 releases to be excited about and wow this year is going to be a good year for Oz Ya.
