GOODBYE 2017 – HELLO 2018 (IM BAAAACCCKKKKKK)

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS!!!!!!!!!

Yep, I’m baaaaccckkkk (is this when you are all like, KAT? YOU WERE GONE), I decided to take a break over Christmas to have some me time but I am back and here to stay!

Right, so things that have been happening while I was gone, let me thinkkkkk.

🌸 I now officially own by first Rick Riordan book, *GASP* I know, how shocking!!! So, I officially own the Percy Jackson series and the Magnus Chase series thanks to my other half so I’m very excited to start it.

🌸 There may have been a spending spree over Christmas leading to me now having over 20 new books, so there may be a haul (don’t watch this space though just incase!!!).

🌸 I am detained to be more organised this year so not only have I got a diary to keep blog posts and my social life in some sort of order – this means I’ll be posting every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday! πŸ™‚

🌸 The lovely Evelina over at AvalinahsBooks has created a discord for book bloggers and I HIGHLY recommend you check it out of you get the chance to πŸ™‚

🌸 I pre-orded 11 books which is a lot for me and then ended up pre-ordering another 10 which just means that 2018 is going to be a year for AMAZING books!!!

So, reading goals! Not going to lie but I love setting myself one, I feel all accomplished if I hit it (and stressed if I don’t) but I love it! I managed to read over 160 books in 2917 which blew my mind as I’ve never read that many books before ever!! This year I’m going to target 200 books (lol please send help already), wish me luck!!!

 

 

I thought I’d give a go at a monthly TBR so here are the 10 books I plan to read this month πŸ™‚

  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
  • Along the Idigo by Elsie Chapman
  • Pen & Xander by Laekan Zea Kemp
  • That Secret You Keep by Brenda Benny
  • We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
  • Ready Player One by Earnest Cline
  • Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
  • Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
  • The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

 

 

So what’s you reading challenge if you have set yourself one for the new year?
Have you pre-orded any amazing books coming out over the next few months?
AND DID YOU MISS ME? (joke, maybe, sorta??)

  1. I totally dig the new layout and graphics! I’m all about the white and a pop of color. Sounds like you are going to be busy in 2018 with all your books!
    I recently just found out that I have Ready Player One. My boyfriend got it in a Lootcrate and we didn’t even realize it until we went through his loot. lol.
    I keep hearing about everyone reading The Cruel Prince. I might have to give it a go.
    I got only a couple books for Christmas but they were awesome. I got a beautiful concept art book of Overwatch and my brother bought me Roots with the vague promise of more books for my birthday.
    I set mine at 175. What did you set yours too?

    xxlacy

    1. Thank youuu!! To be honest, my other half deserves most of the credit as he created the logo and all that sort of stuff, I’m hopeless at anything HTML xD

      Yeah, I really want to read ready player one before the film goes out, I watched the trailer but it was pretty confusing and made no sense to me so I’m hoping reading the book will help me understand it better!

      My fingers are crossed for The Cruel Prince to be good as it’s one of my most anticipated releases for January πŸ™‚

      Ooh, Overwatch? Is that the game?! πŸ™‚ (sorry if I’m wrong!!!)

      I’ve sent mine to 200, I’m probably being overly ambitious but I’m still excited to try πŸ˜€

  2. Love a goal post ❀️ Since I started blogging in August my reading has well and truly been on the back burner but I plan to rectify that this year. I got a couple of books for christnas so going to start with those and have been lucky enough to be sent one to review than am going to work my way through the stack I have Happy New Year and good luck on achieving your goals

    1. Ooh, what books did you get? πŸ™‚
      Just take your time and enjoy them, I’m sure you’ll meet your goal πŸ˜€
      Happy new year!!

    1. You just can’t resist a bit of book buying every once in a while ☺️☺️

      Yay! Once you’ve read it you will have to let me know what you think

  3. I’m also working hard on trying to keep my blog organized this year. We’ll see how it goes! XD I’m so excited for so many 2018 releases as well; if I had any money, I would’ve pre-ordered so many of them! Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up this year because every single year I say I’ll keep up and then I don’t.

    I absolutely loved The Cruel Prince and The Dream Thieves, so I really hope you enjoy those as well! I just bought We Are The Ants earlier in December and I can’t wait to read it! I read At The Edge of the Universe and adored it, and I think I’ll love this one, too!

    And I love the layout of your blog! So pretty! <3

    1. I just need to remember that I’ve ordered so many and not be shocked when amazon takes money out of my bank every month xD

      I’m like nearly 300 pages into We Are The Ants and i’m loving it so i’m excited to see what you think πŸ™‚

      & Thank you so much!!!! <33333

  4. Oh Words In Deep Blue is one of my favourites EEEEEP I hope you like it!! And I hope you had a nice holiday from blogging. ;D I think it’s good to take hiatuses now and then…says me who never seems to take one haha. But I probably will in February! And omg so many preorders! I totally don’t blame you though because holllly heck this year is going to be amazing for books. It’s already impossible to choose.

    1. Ahhh, i’m sure I will it sounds adorable and it’s set in a bookstore!!!!
      It was fab to have a little break, but it’s also really nice to be back, i’m sure you’ll feel the same when you take one πŸ™‚
      YES, so many good books this year 2018 is gonna be hella good πŸ™‚

  5. I haven’t read Percy Jackson yet though I do own the first two books and the fourth one (I think) as well as the first book in the Kane Chronicles. I’ve set myself a goal of 100 books and although I’ve already read two, I’ve started Les Miserables. Kicking off 2018 with a 1232 page book haha!
