I’ve been watching a lot of television recently, too much you could say. I definitely haven’t been reading as much as I usually do and I place that blame solely at the feet of Netflix. I’ve been watching and re-watching tons of shows to serve as distractions from everything and simply because there are so many good things to watch.
I started watching Vikings earlier this year and I’m still going strong. I’m halfway through season four and am slowly but surely catching up. I took a bit of a break but now I put on an episode every once in a while so I don’t get to far behind. I love watching historical shows so this one was definitely up my alley and I’m loving it.

Another month and more books read. February was a weird month, looking back on it, it seems to have lasted forever, but it’s the shortest month. That probably has to do with the fact that I’m a second-semester senior and time just seems to be dragging on. I did manage to read a grand total of 16 books this month (YAY) and really enjoyed them.
In non-bookish news, the school year seems to be dragging on and college is looming large. Decisions need to be made-soon! as my parents keep reminding me- and I’ve had the last of my interviews over the past month. Back to book-ish news; I went to LibraryPalooza again this year, and had a lot of fun at that bookish convention. With all of that out of the way, let’s get back to why were here, the books I read this month:
Since my GoodReads goal was set at 1 book I can now say that I’ve already finished my GoodReads goal of the year! It was a bit of a struggle but I made it…barely. All joking aside, I had a really good reading month. I read six book in total and I ended up enjoying all of them. Not a bad seed in the bunch. Which was totally unexpected and awesome. I was hoping to finish my current read ( The Fiery Cross) in time, but didn’t make it with a little less than 50 pages left but that’ll definitely be my first read of February, and before I keep prattling along for ages here are the books that made up January for me.
2017 has been a year of many things and for me it was the year of TV. The silver screen failed to disappoint me and I watched a lot of Netflix (more than is healthy) over the past 12 months. Some of the shows debuted in 2017 some of them were new seasons of past favorites and others classics that I finally got around to. So here are my favorite shows I watched in 2017.Read More »

For hundreds of years, Scotland has battled the English for their freedom. Now, they face a new enemy.

As civil war breaks out among the Highland clans, James recruits a secret group of warriors for protection. He calls them the Protectors of the Crown.

Keira Sinclair has lived a life of peace and simplicity until now. With her clan on the verge of losing everything, she is forced to wed a Laird from a neighboring clan to ensure that hers survives. During her travels to her new home, her carriage is attacked and Keira is taken hostage by a ruthless man.
Caught in the middle of a war that she does not understand, will Keira’s secrets be safe, or will she succumb to the Highland warrior who now threatens to capture her heart?

They say the best things come in pairs and books are no exception. I saw this tag over on Thrice Reads blog and it looked like a lot of fun. In this tag, you take 5-10 pairs of books that you think to compliment each other. This seems like a great way to avoid a book hangover or if you’re in the mood for a book of a similar feel. So here is the Books to Read in Pairs Tag. Read More »

As this month comes to an end so does the school year, although technically I have my last final on June 1st, I now consider the school year to be over. I read a lot more books than I originally anticipated this month. It started off a bit hectic what with AP exams and then after 1 weeks reprieve began finals, somehow in the midst of all the last-minute projects and cramming I managed to read 13 books. I think that a record high for me this month in terms of books read per month. I also managed to reach my original Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year so I’ve decided to aim higher and raised it to 150 books and hopefully, this upcoming summer can allow me to make a dent on that. I’ve rambled on for long enough so here are the books I read this month.Read More »
I read a lot more this month than I was expecting to. I had a bit of a busy month as I had to review for my AP Testing that happening in the beginning of May. I won’t be very active in the next couple of weeks though I do have some post scheduled so I’m not totally MIA. April was a great reading month. I read nine even though I only thought I would be able to read two. I have become more than a little bit obsessed with historical romances over the past month. There a lot of fun to read and go by so quickly I was able to squeeze in quite a few. So here is my month in books. Read More »
