Week in Review - Week 51

Random Thoughts

Here we are at week 51. That means that as long as I get my post up next Sunday, I managed to blog every Sunday this year. That was one of my goals for 2016, so, yay. lol Later in the year I started blogging more in general, but my goal was only once a week. I hope that I can maintain the blogging in 2017, even if it is just the Sunday posts. That also depends on my reading in 2017. I didn't slump that much this year, but I find my reading can be really good one year and then really quiet the next year. Hopefully audios will keep me from entirely vanishing. I know I am hardly reading this month, so hard to say what that will mean for January.

Weekly Reading

The Crown's Game ~ Someone on Litsy mentioned this was a daily deal for Kindle and that they really liked it. I read the description and decided it definitely sounded worth checking out. I amazingly read it almost right away, too! I have to admit that I really liked it. A fantasy set against a Russian background about two magicians competing to be the court enchanter. Strong female characters, interesting male characters... I am really looking forward to the sequel. Recommended!

All the Birds in the Sky ~ This was a 2016 release that I was really curious about, so when it was in a recent sale, I finally grabbed a copy. And, now, I really just cannot put my finger on why I didn't love it. It was good, but not as good as I was anticipating it to be. The narrator wasn't bad or anything, but maybe I should have read it instead? I guess there were just other books this year that were better.

Y: The Last Man - Volumes 1 to 4 - So, according to Goodreads I have only read the first two Volumes in this series. I am pretty sure I have read further, but I am not always the best at remembering to record my reading. Some years are better than others! I really love it and Brian Vaughan is always really good. So, I am determined to read them all over the next bit and then I can say for sure I have read them all! Strongly recommended!

  1. Congratulations on meeting your blogging goal. That's pretty awesome. :-) I have reviews and a top ten post planned for this week, but next week will probably be quiet around here. I want to take part of January off from blogging altogether, if not at least keeping in sparse. We'll see how I'm feeling. :-) I hope you have a wonderful week, Kelly. Happy Holidays.

  2. I'm hoping 2017 will be a better reading and blogging year for me too. I got The Crown's Game when it was on sale too. Haven't read it yet but maybe I'll put it a little higher on my tbr list now.

  3. You've done better than I have with Sunday posts! It is always a great thing when you set goals and achieve them, so congratulations! I can't wait to see what you set for goals for 2017.

  4. I'm glad this was a better reading (and blogging) year for you!

  5. Congrats on reaching your goal, since I'm sure with one Sunday left you'll do it.
    The Crown's Game sounds good.
