February Wrap Up/ Haul/ March TBR

I am extremely disappointed because I had an extremely sad reading month last month and I hope that this month will be better since I will be going on spring break very soon. In February I only read one book which was the only book I bought during the month which was:

  • Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination by J.K. Rowling

In March I plan to read a lot more because I will be going on spring break, my last class is on Friday and I am extremely excited to read…

  • Something In Between by Melissa De La Cruz
  • Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh
  • Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

I really hope that I can get more reading done this month, and since I am posting this a few days into this month I have already read one book, but it wasn’t on this month’s tbr, so I’ll include it when I do my March wrap up.

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

February Wrap Up/ Haul/ March TBR

I’m so incredibly disappointed that I did such little reading in February. I’m not able to get much reading done because I have so much schoolwork and readings to do that the only time I have to read is for stuff for my classes. Also when I had time to read, I just really had no desire to pick up book so I guess that means I’m in a bit of a reading slump. I really hope that next month I’ll be able to read more. In February I ended up reading…

  • A Walk to Remember by: Nicholas Sparks

This year so far I’m also doing pretty well with controlling myself when it comes to buying books. I really want to shrink down my TBR pile and that isn’t really possible if I’m buying a ton of books especially since I’m not reading much. In February I ended up buying…

  • Crooked Kingdom by: Leigh Bardugo
  • Illuminae by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Gemina by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Caraval by: Stephanie Garber
  • Another Day by: David Levithan

In March I’m really hoping to read more but I don’t know if that will be possible because I’ll be dealing with midterms but I’ll also be on Spring Break so I’m really hoping that I don’t have work to do during that time so that I can focus on reading. In March I plan on reading…

  • Illuminae by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Gemina by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Six of Crows by: Leigh Bardugo

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

January Wrap Up/ Haul/ February TBR

I’m kind of sad and happy at the same time because I ended up finished the Throne of Glass series this month. I’m sad because I have to wait until September to read the final book because I just don’t want it to end but I’m excited to see what’s going to happen next. In January I ended up reading…

  • Queen of Shadows by: Sarah J. Maas
  • Empire of Storms by: Sarah J. Maas
  • Between Shades of Gray by: Ruta Sepetys
  • Milk and Honey by: Rupi Kaur

In January I really tried controlling myself and I didn’t buy that many books. I’m proud of myself because I only got three books which is strange for me because on average I get about ten books or more a month. I ended up getting…

  • The Diabolic by: S.J. Kincaid
  • Two by Two by: Nicholas Sparks
  • Milk and Honey by: Rupi Kaur

In February I don’t know how much I’ll be able to read because I just started school again and I’ll be having work and assignments to do for my classes but I hope to end up reading…

  • A Walk to Remember by: Nicholas Sparks (re-read)
  • Something In Between by: Melissa De La Cruz
  • Heartless by: Marissa Meyer
  • Out of the Easy by: Ruta Sepetys

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

December Wrap Up/Haul & January TBR

Since finishing my first semester of college I’ve been able to read a whole lot more.

In December I ended up reading…

  • Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

This month I have been making a lot of purchases, but it’s the holidays so who can blame me. 😅 This month I only bought three books, the rest of the bookish purchases I made were Funko Pops. I’m trying to collect all of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts Pops, so when they go on sale I just can’t resist. The books I bought in December were…

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay by J.K. Rowling
  • The Case of the Beasts: Explore the Wizardry of Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them by Mark Salisbury
  • Lady Midnight (Limited Edition) by Cassandra Clare

I was also gifted books by the co-owner (Melissa), those books were:

  • Trial by Fire by: Josephine Angelini
  • Firewalker by: Josephine Angelini
  • The Shadowhunter’s Codex by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis

Since we’re in the middle of a Throne of Glass marathon I will be continuing to read the series into the new year. So in January I will be reading…

  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
  • Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
  • Replica by Lauren Oliver

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

Three of the books I got were given to me, one I got for free, and the ones I did buy were really cheap. Also there was a bit of an issue with BookOutlet and I ended up receiving the same order of books I made twice so I did give two of them to Wilmarilys but she already had a copy of Gathering Darkness so I didn’t give her that one. By the way, I also did end up getting 7 funko pops. Anyway, in December I ended up getting…
