I am literally stunned that it's the end - almost - of January. THE FIRST MONTH OF 2017 IS GONE!! (Nearly.)
My month went really well. School has been bearable
not counting maths and science but we won't go there, and I've been reading the Bible and writing every day :) I am SO happy about that! Some nights I just couldn't face writing, but I made myself do it and I already feel like it's improving.
As for my sugar-free diet......it's going okay, I guess. Although my Dad bought a box of instant Honey and Nut Latte the other day, and since I'm the only one who likes it and coffee is my ultimate weakness......Thanks, Dad. Nothing like a box of sugary, amazing coffee to motivate a diet.
I watched and read a lot this month. It was also an amazing time for review requests - in the first week of Jan I received about four requests from different authors, and I also requested my first review copy; which I got accepted for and received from a publisher. I am SO grateful for all of that - it was amazing and I feel so honoured <3
Posts of the month (excluding reviews and weekly round-ups):
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas
The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey
The Luxe - Anna Godbersen
Unhinged - A. G. Howard
Freeks - Amanda Hocking
Rumours - Anna Godbersen
My favourite book of the month was either Unhinged or The Luxe, and my least favourite was The Maze Runner.
The Host - 2016
An Education - 2009
Me Before You - 2016
Cafe Society - 2016
My favourite film of the month was probably Cafe Society or The Host, and my least favourite was Me Before You. (I think...)
In other news, I created my own blog meme!
If you'd like to join in, simply borrow the graphic and provide the link back to my blog. Thanks!
Tears on Tuesday is a meme hosted by A Magical World of Words that encourages you to share moments from books and movies that have made you cry - either in sadness or joy.
*coughs loudly* This is a VERY ambitious TBR; I doubt I'll get to all of them in Feb. I got most of the books from the library - except for Missing Books, which I received for review, and Darkthaw, Six of Crows and Flawed that I bought myself.
How has your January been? What have you read or watched or done? Got any plans for February?
