December 2016 Wrap Up!

Sorry that I haven’t posted in about a week, I planned on scheduling some posts but I just couldn’t think of any that I knew I would be proud of but I am back, so I will be posting again everyday except Sunday like I usually do! Anyways, I didn’t manage to read too many books this month but I did complete a few so here they are.

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen – I have been reading a lot of contemporary lately so I naturally picked up another Sarah Dessen book. I did a little research before I picked up another one of her books and I am very satisfied with the one I chose. I really liked The Truth About Forever, I thought the characters were very relatable and had real problems, and the ending made me exciting to pick up more of Sarah Dessen’s books! 4/5 stars

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han – I absolutely adored Jenny Han’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” books so I just had to pick up her other trilogy. I am currently reading the second one but I did complete the first one earlier this month and I just flew through it. These books are the definition of summer contemporary books and honestly, despite it being this middle of winter, they got me really excited for the summertime! 4.5/5 stars

We’ll Always Have the Summer by Jenny Han – This is the second book in The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy and I did enjoy it but I found it wasn’t as fast paced and fun as the first. I do understand that the second book is slightly darker and gloomier because of certain events that took place, I know I would enjoy it a little more if that certain event didn’t occur because if you read the books, you know what I mean. 4/5 stars

Those are the 3 books I completed this month and despite the lack of them, I enjoyed all of them and would call it a successful reading month! I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to check out my last blog post!

Reading/Writing Update!

I have so far had quite a productive week for reading and am very happy with what I have managed to complete! So this week, I finally finished the very, very long book that I have been reading since November and that is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! I absolutely loved re reading this book and it was so much fun to continue living in the Harry Potter world again. In about a week or so, I am planning on picking up the 6th book (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) and giving it a read so I am also pumped for that. I also am half way through The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, and as always I am really liking it. I don’t think it is my favourite but definitely one of the better ones!

Anyways, for writing I have done absolutely nothing…Like at all. I am so disappointed but I am still going through some sort of weird writer’s block and it is killing me! I did get a new idea yesterday that I am actually excited about though so I am hoping that is my way out of this terrible writer’s block. I am planning on doing some writing this weekend and since NaNoWriMo is over, I kind of feel a pressure lifted off my shoulders. Not that I actually wrote anything for NaNoWriMo, but yeah. Anyway, I hope you all had success in writing or reading, or both!

That is all for my quick reading and writing update and I hope you enjoyed!
