Best Book/Series you read in 2017:

It’s a tie! I finally jumped on the bandwagon and read the Six of Crows duology, and it was AMAZING! But, I’m also in love with Katherine Arden’s writing, and Vasya is one of my favorite characters to date!

Author(s) you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year:

Shadow and Bone

After loving Six of Crows so much, I can’t wait to read the Grisha Trilogy!

Most anticipated book turned movie/TV show:


Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight (if there is one)

Ooooooh boy. I’ll try to limit myself to just a few

I’d have to say (in no particular order): Azriel, King Edmund, Cullen Rutherford

What’s on you TBR for 2018? (Top 5-10 will suffice if it’s an extremely long list!)

Just to name a few…

How many books are you hoping to read in 2018?

I’m hoping to reach 60 books this year. That was my same goal as last year, and I was a few books short, but there was a lot going on last year, that I hopefully won’t be repeating this year.

Will you participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge or any others (PopSugar, Down the TBR Hole, etc.)?

Yes indeed. My Goodreads challenge is already set up!

Any New Year’s Resolutions? (Bookish, blogging/vlogging, and otherwise)

Most of my resolutions are non-bookish or blogging. The two big ones are that I’d like to pay back at least half my student loans before I start looking at going back to school decide what I want to be when I grow up. And I’d like to find some more indoor hobbies. All of the hobbies I have now are outdoors, which is kind of a bummer when winter comes around.

I Tag You

I tag anyone who is still feeling in the new beginnings vibe of the new year!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Awesome answers, Ryann! I wish you the best of luck with your bookish and non-bookish goals, including those 60 books – also my number 😀 I hope you’re doing alright so far, but again there should be no pressure to achieve anything as reading should be about having fun ^^
    I can’t wait to read SoC and Arden’s books. They sound so amazing. I’m sure you’ll love Grisha, it’s such an epic series ❤ ❤
    Also, thank you for the lovely shout out! You rock ^_^ ❤
