Hey you guys! It's Olive and I'm here today to my January wrap up! So this month fleeew fast and I've had tons to do in school. This just hasn't been a good reading month for me, I did read a bit but not as much as I wished for. The thing is that I started reading books but I got bored and quit, this month has just been me procrastinating everything. Before I tell you what I started reading and actually finished reading this month I want to talk a little about February. Specifically my goals for February and what I'm going to do to minimize my procrastination. Soo, because January was such a crappy reading month for me, I'm going to actually prioritize reading. I'm going to start adding reading to my morning and nightly routine. Like, read 25 minutes before breakfast, 35 minutes before going to bed and at my breaks and lunches. I really hope this will make me not procrastinate it as much. I'm also going to read books I ACTUALLY want to read and not force myself to read something just because everyone else has already read it. Like chill, reading is supposed to be fun not a chore!
So that's something I'm trying to do in February!
Now, to my January wrap up! As I said, I didn't finish that many books but I did start reading a few.
The books I actually finished are;
Percy Jackson - The sea of monsters by Rick Riordan. I have written a review on this so go check it out if you want. I liked this a looot. It was great! It's hilarious, it's clever and it's everything I love about YA books!
The next book I read is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban by J.K Rowling. So something I did in January that I'm proud about is finishing this book. I want to finish the whole series this year so I'm on my way there! This book is great, it's so brilliant and fun and has plot twists that's really unexpected. It's just great and I'm happy that I read it!
AND THAT IS IT! I'M NOT EVEN JOKING! These are the books I finished in January. And I'm not happy about it hahah. But here are the books I started reading in January but never finished, or finished in February.
The boy at the top of the mountain by John Boyne. This is a book we read in school for my Swedish class. I started reading it in January but finished it in early February. It's surprisingly good, it's a historical fiction book. It's set before, during and after WW2.
The next book is The Kill Order by James Dashner. I'm currently reading this, I started in January. If you didn't already know, this is one of the prologues to The Maze Runner.
A book I didn't finish is Stephen King's "IT". It was really interesting but I just couldn't get through it, because you know, it's 1300+ pages long! But I'm going to finish it, maybe in the summer or something like that!
Another book I didn't finish is Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. I'm reading it in English and It's really complicated and hard for me to understand. But I'm going to read it because it's one of my 2018 book goals.
So that is it! Thank you for reading and I goodbye! Love always, Olive. xxx
