Can you believe 2016 is almost over?!
I'm equally excited and completely terrified for what 2017 is going to bring.

December was insane, but I managed to pull everything together by the end.
I finished my reading goal for the month, barely... but I did finish it!
125 books for the year is not too bad.
I did, however, finish up with a LOT of audiobooks and a few graphic novels.
Next year I'm going to keep my goal a little more simple. Haha!

I didn't get any books for Christmas from the family,
as they never seem to know which ones to get,
so I treated myself a few of the books in my book haul!
I've had the Starbound series on my wishlist for a while now,
and I'm excited to finally have all the books and I can't wait to start book 3.
I also picked up a copy of Illumia and Let it Snow, as I enjoyed both books,
but didn't have my own copy yet.

I also got two Harry Potter Funkos from my daughter!
I love Hermione in her pink dress, and Luna Lovegood!!

This year was a mess, but it came with some good in with the bad.
I hope you all had a lot of good in your lives,
and here's hoping for a lot of good next year!!


  1. It look like you had a fantastic December!! My family rarely gets me books as well. I bought a few with some birthday/Christmas cash already. But I'm sure I'll end up buying more. :)

    I'm with you on 2016, but I doubt 2017 will be any better. :(

  2. Ooh very nice! I got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child earlier this month as well! It's one I am both intrigued and terrified to read! LOL! Hopefully I will enjoy it!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!
