Merry Christmas!

I can’t believe that it is Christmas day and this is our last week in December before the new year. So far things are going well as I have mostly just been sitting on the couch reading and watching Netflix. This year my family and I decided to have enchiladas for dinner and then I will head over to my grandparent’s house on Tuesday to have Christmas with them as well. The weather was pretty warm last week but now it is getting much colder which is good.

You may have noticed that I have changed my blog around again. One of my goals for 2018 is to learn some design so I can make my own header although I am not sure when that will happen yet. I have some ideas but I may need some more time to think them through before I decide. I will also have some new posts up this week reflecting back on 2017 and some goals for 2018 as well.

 

Reading goal as of December 25: 126/165 books. (I am not sure if i am going to get to my goal this year but i still have about 16 more books to read so I am hoping to make a lot of progress with it hopefully).

What I read last week:

Gone girl by Gillian Flynn:

19288043

This book took me a while to get through as the beginning was slow but it picked up after about halfway though. I may try another book by this author next year but i am not sure when (3 stars).

This is where it ends by Marieke NijKamp:

25823344

I picked this one up on a whim on my Overdrive account and it was ok although it was a very fast read (3.5/5 stars).

La Belle Sauvage (#1) by Philip Pullman:

34128219

This book took me a lot longer than I thought it would to finish although I did start it when I was still in school so that might be why it took me a long time to finish it than usual. It was still still good though and I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series (5 stars).

 

Harry potter and the goblet of fire (#4) by J.K. Rowling: 

6

I have lost track of how many times i have reread this series. This is definitely one of my favorite books and I can’t wait to read the next one in this series. I would highly recommend this series (5 stars)!

 

Tridea’s Children (#1) by Kevin Peake: 

34834931

I received this one from Netgalley for review and it was ok.  I should have a review up for this one this week hopefully (3 stars).

 

The Scorpio races by Maggie Stiefvater:

10626594

This one was a fast read for me as well. I loved that all of the chapters were short and there was some action in it as well. I would highly recommend this one as well.

 

Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan:

15937108

I had this one as an audio book and it was pretty good (4 stars).

 

Currently reading: 

The body finder (#1) by Kimberly Derting: 

6261522

I just started this one this afternoon and it is pretty good so far. I am hoping to finish it either tonight or tomorrow hopefully.

 

Vampire Kisses (#1) by Ellen Schreiber: 

263147

I have read a few chapters of this one so far and I am hoping to finish it in the next couple of days or so.

 

Nyxia (#1) by Scott Reintgen: 

27426044

This is another one that i have only read a few pages of so far but it seems interesting.

 

The winter people by Jennifer McMahon:

18007535

This is another book that I picked up on my Overdrive account on a whim and it seems interesting so far. I am hoping to finish it sometime this week hopefully.

 

Up Next: 

28588345

29385546

2657

 

So this is what I have planned for this week. I also plan to have a few more posts up later this week as well.

I hope you guys have a Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
