March Wrap Up 2017

Goodbye March. As always I’m convinced we’ve skipped a few days or something cause there is no way I believe April has come by so quickly.

Good news. I have a new laptop. Yes, after 7 weeks of desperately trying to save my old one, at the end it decided it wanted to stay broken. It feels weird typing on a keyboard again.

Moving on, March was a solid reading month for me. I finished A Conjuring of Light on the first of the month and that book put me in such a deep book coma I’m surprised I even had it in me to pick up another book. The Shades of Magic series has officially sealed it’s spot at an all time favourite. However, the two other books I read in March were enjoyable as well. Breath of Fire had that same addictive quality to it and Wanderlost has me itching to hop on a flight somewhere.

February Wrap Up 2017

As usual, I will start this post baffled by how fast February has flown by. Now, this month was chaotic and was pretty much defined by my terrible luck with technology. A month ago today my laptop decided it hates me and basically broke on me. Assuming all I needed was a screw to fix it I took it to the repair shop and guess what, I still don’t have it back. So blogging wise I’ve not been as interactive as I’d like to have been but I did get a good chunk of reading done. The highlight of this reading month has got to be getting my hands on A Conjuring of Light and it was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. It has put in a serious book coma because I cannot get over these wonderful characters.

January Wrap Up 2017

We have officially come to the end of the first month in 2017. Did I achieve any of the goals I set on New Years Eve…no. Instead I was hit by an absolutely horrible reading slump. I’m surprised I even managed to finish Stars Above. 

I did find some other hobbies to indulge in during this slump. By that I mean I basically binge watched a bunch of TV shows and films in that time. So on that front, I will say that I developed a bit of an addiction to Yuri On Ice. Now, I’ve not watched a lot of anime shows but I’d heard so much buzz about this show that I thought I should give it a shot and now I’m hooked and am basically making everyone I know watch it as well. 

Besides that, my life has basically consisted of TV shows, work and a no reading whatsoever. Sad times. Here is my monthly recap.
