I was tagged by the lovely Heather over at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for tagging me! Don’t forget to check out her amazing bookish blog!
I know it’s now the middle of January, but I’m still going to do this tag. I’m still in denial that I’ve already wasted two and a half weeks of 2017 doing absolutely nothing.
It was announced a while back that the Throne of Glass series is going to be made into a TV show. Then a couple months ago they released the name of the show: Queen of Shadows. They haven’t made a cast of characters yet, but there are many TOG casts that fans made. I wanted to make my own.
Now keep in mind that I don’t know a lot of celebrities. I tend not to keep up with them because I’ve got better things to do (like read books). With my limited knowledge of actors and actresses, here is my fan cast for the upcoming Queen of Shadows TV show.
If you haven’t read up to Queen of Shadows, I highly suggest that you do not read past this point because there are some spoilers of new characters that appear.
Holy cheese balls this survey took me a long time to finish. It was fun, though.
I didn’t know this was a thing until I saw it explode all over the blogosphere lately. I looked into it and it seemed interesting that I wanted to give it a go. This survey was created by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page Turner.
Because there were so many great books that I read in 2016, I’m going to try and not repeat the same book for each answer. There will be a couple repeats, though (a.k.a. you’re going to see me fangirling over Six of Crows a lot).
New year, new books! There are a lot of great books that are coming out this year that I’m super excited for. Many are part of a series, but some are new series. I linked their Goodreads page in case you wanted to add some book to your TBR pile.
All of these release dates may change.

WARNING: The synopses might have spoilers if it isn’t the first book in the series.
I put a spoiler alert to the books that aren’t the first in the series.
So my week is off to a great start. Last night, I split my toenail in half. It sounds a lot grosser than it actually was. I didn’t split my toenail in two pieces. It was more like I was peeling off a layer of toenail. Now I have a very thin layer of toenail protecting my toe. Okay, actually I take that back. That also sounds pretty gross. I apologize if I just upset your stomach.
Thankfully, it didn’t hurt that much. I actually didn’t notice it until I hit my toe on a table leg.
(If you can’t tell by now, I’m super clumsy. Sometimes, I trip over nothing.)
Also, I gave myself a small paper cut on my finger and it STINGS LIKE A MOTHERFLUBBER! How can something so tiny hurt so dang much? Science probably has the answer to that. I bet my nerves are having a party right now.
On top of all that, this week is finals week. Am I having a rough time? A little bit. Just a tad.
I hope you guys are having a much better week than I am!
If you aren’t, here’s a few gifs that might make you happier:
Until next time….

I don’t follow TBRs all that well. I just read whatever I feel like at that time. However, there are a couple books I really need to read before 2017 is over or else I’m going to not be happy with myself. Most of these book are ones that I’ve owned for a long time but haven’t read. If I don’t set goals for myself, I’m probably never going to read them. That’s why I’m making a book bucket list of 2017.
I was tagged by Ava over at Reads, Rhythms, & Ruminations. Thanks so much for tagging me! I think doing something Harry Potter related is a good way to start off the new year.
I’ve already done this tag once before, and if you want to see my previous answers, click here. I’m going to try and not give the same answers that I did in my previous post by mainly using the books I read in 2016.
New month means new book releases. I’m in a book buying ban right now because I already have too many books that I own but haven’t read. I need to get onto that.
However, that doesn’t stop me from being excited for some new releases.
(All the synopses are from Goodreads.)
I’ve made it my mission to set some goals for my blog every year. It’s kind of like that saying “there is always room for improvement”. I know my blog isn’t perfect, and I believe that there is always something that I can improve on it. Every year I set goals to (hopefully) make some improvements in hopes to make my blog better than it was the year before.
I have three goals for my blog next year.
1. Stop rambling!
I tend to ramble on my posts. I also tend to repeat a lot of the things I’ve already said before. I need to stop doing that.
2. Quality over quantity.
I try to post once every two days, and sometimes that goal reduces the quality of what I write. I need to focus more on what I’m writing rather than how much I’m writing. This might mean less frequent posting, however.
3. Keep the blog true to myself.
I started this blog because I wanted to talk about one my of biggest passions: books. I made this blog for myself, and so I want to keep it true to myself. I don’t want to act like someone else. This blog is me, therefore it should portray who I am, imperfections and all.
Happy New Year! Hopefully 2017 will be better than 2016.
How was your 2016?
What are some of your goals for 2017?
Are there any books that are being released in 2017 that you’re excited for?
Until next time….
