I’m done with my third year of university! Honestly, I’m still not used to being able to say that. I can’t believe that I’ve only got one year left! (Well, unless I failed this year and have to retake or something….) Anyway, May for me was filled with revision and exams. However, I did get to do some fun stuff – I saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (it was fabulous), went to a Eurovision party (of course), and helped out at a bike race. So May actually ended up being pretty good, considering all the exams that happened!

It’s almost summer!! It’s only a few more weeks until I’m done with third year (which is exciting and also terrifying because it means I graduate next year). How’s my April been? Well, most of it was lovely – Easter holidays, church holiday, barn dances, games nights – but there was the matter of coursework, class tests, and revision. Overall though, April has been fantastic.

What a month! I didn’t have high expectations for March, but it turned into a pretty awesome month. I’ve celebrated three friends’ birthdays (there was a lot of food involved), I’ve visited uni friends, I cheered people on at a half marathon (no, I didn’t take part myself – that will never happen), I’ve been to a fashion museum, I saw Beauty and the Beast, and I found out that McDonalds has a Welsh option on their self service machines IN ENGLAND. (Shh, this was a major revelation for me – much excitement happened). And the weather has suddenly turned gorgeous!

So, the first month of 2017 is over already, and what a month it’s been! Three weeks of revision, five exams, one 21st party, and the stress of buying tickets for Hamilton. If the rest of the year carries on like this, then 2017 is going to be a pretty busy year. I can’t wait!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! (Yes, I know it’s been 2015 for a week already, but I thought I’d say it anyway). December was a weird month – I barely posted anything until the last few days of the month, so this is going to be a pretty short round up. The main reasons I wasn’t posting were a) lots of uni stuff going on, and b) CHRISTMAS. Which was awesome. But yeah, round up time.
I posted a grand total of 2 reviews in December. Yep, two. They were My True Love Gave To Me and The Hit. My True Love Gave To Me was a really great Christmas read with some really good short stories. The Hit was also surprisingly better than expected, because spies/assassins/missions etc. I also posted One Day More, talking about my uni experience so far, my resolutions for 2015 and part 1 of my end of year survey.
And that was my December. Very empty, I know. Here’s to January being full of a lot more blogging! (And sadly, five exams).
How was the end of 2014 for you?
I read 107 books this year which is pretty good going for me. Of course, some were far, far better than others, so here are 14 of my favourites from 2014!
Published Before 2014
Published In 2014
Those are my top picks, although there are a few more which almost got up there!
What were your favourite books in 2014?
This is part 2 of Jamie’s 2014 End of Year Survey. (Part 1 is here). This is the part where I look at a) blogging/bookish life and b) the year ahead.
Your Blogging/Bookish Life
1. New favourite book blog you discovered in 2014?
I discovered quite a few new blogs this year, but one I always make sure to check out is Rachel’s at Confessions of a Book Geek
2. Favourite review that you wrote in 2014?
Maybe Since You’ve Been Gone? I don’t know, I have a really bad memory of how good any of my reviews were.
3. Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog?
Ah, I don’t know. I’m also pretty bad at doing discussion posts. However, it is one of my goals for 2014!
