I would like to start off this year by challenging myself. I plan on doing the best that I can to tackle by TBR pile and to help with that, I set up my own little pile on my end table to motivate me to read as much of them as possible. That being said, after discussing with the club on what book we should read for January, I was very happy to see that the one that was chosen was actually one that was near the top of my pile! It’s been on my shelf for a whole year now and it deserves to be read. The January Book of the Month is going to be Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch! In a world where the Kingdom of Winter was taken over, the Winterians, now without Winter’s magic, grasp at the hope that someone will take back what once was theirs. Meira would do anything to save her kingdom and once she hears about an ancient locket that might help in gaining back their lost magic, she jumps at the opportunity. Will she have what it takes to face everything that will come her way? I’ve read so many good reviews on this one and I’m thrilled to have it as our first Book of the Month of the year!
It's a new year and so instead of having the general system of out of 5 numbers, I'm going to be rating it with feathers! They're incredibly well-drawn and I'd like to thank my friend Cat for her talent and kindness. I think the feathers are very fitting and I can't wait for my next review to show everyone!
Goodreads Reading Challenge!
I was so happy to have seen that I completed my reading challenge until I've noticed that I accidentily put the same book twice! I was one book off this year for my challenge with 49 out of 50 books but I'm not putting myself down for it. With work and everything else going on in my life, I'm so glad to have been able to read so many amazing books and I'm excited to try again this year in 2017 and beat it this time! Wanting to challenge myself even more, I've decided to go with the goal of reading 55 books this year! Wish me luck!
Happy New Year! May this one be filled with love, laughter and lots of books!
