March 2017 WRAPUP

What a busy month I’ve had! Full of school assignments, dramas and general busyness. That said, I did get little inbetween moments to read some delightful books!

I read 16 books this month.

about the books…

Sometimes it annoys me how many books I reread each month – but at the same time, I do love revisiting old friends that I’ve known for years and years! The What Katy Did series is like that for me. I’ve reread it countless times and haven’t had enough yet.

I finally got around to the Selection series – and let’s just say that I’ll be stopping after the third book. It wasn’t really my kind of series. I disliked the writing style, and honestly, when that happens I automatically greatly dislike the book. Unfortunately this happened with The Selection series. That said, I understand if you like it! It certainly has its good points, and there’s no doubt that it’s a page turner 😉


in other news…

I’ve been rolling along semi-steadily this month. A lot of personal stuff has happened but I’m trying not to let it get to me??? At least not if it doesn’t have to. Sometimes I worry about the fact that I don’t stress over dramas a lot, but at the same time I’m just too lazy to stress. It’s just too much work.

Uni is happening. That’s all I have to say on that. Also, IT’S FINALLY THE HOLIDAYS. That means no more school/math!!! *throws confetti in celebration*

I’m currently trying to put all of the books we own into a database. I’m just using googledocs, because I’m too poor to buy an actual program. It’s working well so far. I’ve been told that we (as a family) should open a library! A far off dream – (but I’m starting by making a database, sssshhh).

I started up my bookstagram account again! I went on an unannounced hiatus because of busy school and no motivation to take photos. But I’m back!!!
