Well, 2017 has gotten the best of me. Just two months into the year and I’ve already fallen behind with my reading wrap ups. BUT, I do have a legitimate reason for this little combined wrap up .. I wanted to revamp these posts but realised I didn’t have the time to do so, and by the time I realised I should have posted my January reading wrap up, it was mid-February and it made more sense to combine these first two months. Also, heads up, it’s heavy with adult romance novels because I’ve had a rough couple of months and easy, breezy and sexy was all I wanted to read.
It is time for the most important lists of 2016, the two lists that matter the most: the list of best books and best movies I read and saw last year! And though it’s always hard to put things in a certain perspective, it’s even harder to put them in an order, but I’ve done this for many years and I think I’ve got it! So despite my fears and the slow burning panic that started somewhere in the middle of November, these lists took me less time than I had planned.. which is not to say that they didn’t take more than an hour, because they did but it was all for a good cause!
Happy New Year fellow bloggers and readers! 2017 has finally arrived, and though some posted their best and worst of 2016 last year, some, like me, are taking their time to reflect, contemplate and fuss over these things a little while longer. I for one was certain I was going to watch or read at least one great movie or an amazing book to shake up my 2016 list which sort of happened, but not really. So to start off this quite extensive three part histology event of 2016, let us look at the disappointing and bad at first.
In the month of November I met my 2016 reading challenge – I’ve read 60 books, and by now I’ve hit 64 books. Only 2 of the books I’ve added into my reading challenge this year have been DNF’s (Did Not Finish), which I think is pretty good. Come to think of it, I rarely put books down, but when I do, I have many reasons to do so. But that being said, here are the books I read in the month of November, including one DNF, because I couldn’t be bothered to waste more time on it.
Little late with this wrap up but hey, better late than never. So anyway, this month I improved from last month… a bit. The beginning was promising and then I was in a slump for a week and a half. By the end though, I read five books and mostly because at the end of the month I picked up two very light LGBT books.
