Most Anticipated 2017 Releases! (#1)

This is a really short list because all of these are released in early 2017 and I don’t really know of any others in late 2017 yet so I’ll probably do another anticipated releases later on in the year. I’m very excited for these books and they are all released quite close together, yay!

carve-the-mark1) Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

I was so excited to read this when I first heard she was writing it! It feels like I have been waiting forever for it! It sounds like it’s going to be really good and it’s out the 17th January so not that much longer to wait! I really hope it’s worth the wait! It sounds a bit like An Ember in the Ashes – two people from two different worlds coming together to help one another survive. It will probably be a lot different but they sound a bit alike and I really enjoyed Ember so hopefully I will enjoy this one, too. The cover looks amazing, so eye-catching!

Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Goals

Hello everyone! This is my first Top 5 Wednesday post of 2017! I have really enjoyed taking part in this the last few months and have decided to carry on taking part this year, too! I can’t wait to see other topics we can do over the coming months.

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

The topic this week focuses on 2017 goals and it can be anything from reading goals to blog/channel/Instagram goals and personal goals! Pretty much anything you want! My goals will mainly be focused on my blog and reading challenges. I’m pretty active on Instagram since I post everyday, if I set a goal for that it would probably be to take more pictures!

I set a goal of fifty books in 2016 but I only managed to read 40/50 which isn’t bad but still ten off my goal! I have set the same target again this year because I know I can easily hit 40 again so my goal this year is to try and hit 50 books!

2) Post more reviews

The past couple months I have posted very little reviews so my goal this year is to try and post a lot more. I have been reading books I haven’t felt like reviewing so I might split it more fairly this year. For example, instead of reading a chunk of books I know I’m not going to review, I’ll read a couple ones I am interested in reviewing and then switch to ones I know I definitely won’t review. Hopefully this will work!

January TBR!

Is it really 2017? I can’t believe it! I hope everyone had an awesome start to the New Year and you are all having a relaxing day! Here are the books I plan on reading this month:

the-chemist1) The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

I am currently over 100 pages in and I am finally starting to get into it! I think the start had a lot of info dumping and it took a while to process everything but it’s getting quite interesting now. I hope that it has a lot of twists and turns because it sounds like a book that should but so far I’m not really seeing anything surprising or shocking. There’s very little speech so it’s taking a while to get through it all. I like books to be broken up by speech but trust me, there is very little so far. I am enjoying it though so I’ll continue reading it and hope that it progresses a bit. I’ll be posting a review on it as soon as I finish it!
