January wrapup 2018

*peeks head back in* is anybody there?

One day I will consistently blog, and that is one of my goals for this year. Who knows if it’ll actually happen, but I’d love to keep a consistent schedule – ahhhh maybe one day!

When I think of January 2018, I want to think of friends, heat, books, and tv! I spent the last month of my holidays doing as little as possible, learning how to drive, and getting a new job. All in all, it was quite a wonderful month!

I read ten books in January.


Mere Motherhood (Cindy Rollins) – 4 // 5

The Weight of Water (Sarah Crossan) – 4 // 5

Cinder (Marissa Meyer) – 3 // 5

The Graces (Laure Eve) – 3 // 5

One Would Think the Deep (Claire Zorn) – 4 // 5

Turtles All the Way Down (John Green) – 5 // 5

The King’s General (Daphne Du Maurier) – 4 // 5

Created to be His Helpt-Meet (Debi Pearl) – 2 // 5

Very Far from Here (Dennis Hamley) – 2 // 5

The Days are Just Packed – Calvin and Hobbes (Bill Waterson) – 4 // 5


some of the books I read!

about the books . . .

All in all, it was a nice reading month! I wish that I had read a bit more, but I mostly enjoyed what I did read!

Highlights included Turtles All The Way Down – WHICH I LOVED. SO SO MUCH. The representation was wonderful, as was the writing and realism of it! It taught me heaps, and didn’t leave me seriously depressed, as all John Green’s other novels have. Bless this book ❤

Another interesting book I read was Very Far From Here by Dennis Hamley – interesting primarily because I was the first person on Goodreads to review it, which was very exciting!! Unfortunately I actually really disliked the book; I really wanted to like it, but it just wasn’t that great at all :((

monthly highlights:

  • learning how to drive!! Ahhhh I can operate a car now!!
  • going on camp, and learning so so much xx
  • New Years’ and whispered chats and loud laughter ❤
  • getting a job!! What??
  • starting a bullet journal!! Lots of posts coming from there, I can assure you.

Here’s to a great 2018! *sips glass of apple juice*

Keep smiling,

Emmi xx

  1. You had a good reading month! Some of those books sound interesting too. I was going to read Turtles all the Way Down, but I find Green super depressing, so I didn’t. But I might try it since it didn’t leave you depressed.
    Nice post!

    • Thank you!! xx I would definitely recommend Turtles all the Way Down; it’s definitely less depressing than his other books, and is written in a very different style!
