Where reading is a way of life

Quick update on 2016!

Hey everyone! Its been a really long time since I've done a blog post! I've sort of been doing most of my "blogging" on my Facebook Page and my Instragram...honestly its a lot faster, and I like the picture format. But, I don't want to let my blog die, so I'm going to try to get a post up at least once a week for 2016!

I also haven't been writing too many full book reviews, mainly because of time issues. I've really gotten back into my art over the last 2 years, and that takes up a lot of my free time. What's left is reading time, and I actually want to use that time for reading! You'll see lots of artsy things in the picture above--that's what my favorite bookshelf looked like at Christmas! I lot of those are papercrafts I received from other artists. Fun!

Anyways, I thought I'd do a quick update on what I read in January. I read a total of 18 books: 12 YA books, 2 nonfiction, 3 adult, and 1 children's book.

The Opal by Jennifer L Armentrout          4 stars
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin        5 stars
