January Wrap Up & Haul

Hello bookworms! One month of 2018 has already passed, I am not ready for school or for anything really ahah. But I hope 2018 has started off well for you, and if not, I hope it the tables will turn for the better for you ❤

Anyways, in Australia, I was still in my summer vacation, so I was able to read quite a bit. And with the busy school year starting, I don’t think I’ll be able to read this much again until December. So wrap ups may be less frequent, but who knows. In January, I was able to read 19 books! Here are what I read (For majority of them, I wrote quick reviews/ my thoughts on them on Goodreads. If there is a particular book you’d like to know my thoughts about, ask! I’d be more than happy to tell you what I thought on it)

Thank you to Hachette Australia for sending me a copy of Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco for me to review! I can’t wait to read and review it! I also bought Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff with my birthday money which I didn’t use until now ahah. I can’t wait to read this, as I’ve heard such great things about it. 

I also received the movie tie-in edition of Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Forever and Always, Lara Jean by Jenny Han today in the mail.

This month, I was also able to attend the Penguin Teen YA Showcase, which also included an early screening of Love, Simon. I loved seeing all my bookish friends again, And Love, Simon was amazing, it made me laugh and cry and smile and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I saw it. I definitely will be seeing it again in March/April. Honestly, I think you’ll all love it as well.

I also went to the YA Showcase last Sunday, which was hosted by the YA Room. I only stayed until lunch, because it was hot and the last two panels were ones I didn’t mind missing. But the first two panels I was at were fun and interesting. Also, I came to support my bestie, Anisha who was on the Teen To The Front Panel.

Overall, January was a great reading month and it was so nice to relax and read to my heart’s content. I won’t be doing that for the rest of the year now *sighs*.
