Happy New Year! Another year has come and gone. I won’t lie and say that 2016 was my favorite year but I can admit that 2016 changed me as a person. But leaving that aside, 2016 was a big year of firsts for me. I started this blog, got my Instagram up and running, and knocked out some chapters in my novel.
I’ve decided that 2017 will be a year of writing. My New Years Resolution is to be more committed to his blog and work harder on my novel. I have some ideas for HarleeReads that I need to work out that will make this blog thrive like I know it can. I want to read more books. I want to expand my interests and read different types of novels. I also want to start working on my novel more often. I said last year that my goal was to finish it but that never happened. This year, I’d like to try and get a first draft done.
Enough about resolutions and goals and on with the books I read in December. This month was a rough month for me personally. It made me appreciate books and what they can do to a person. Just a quiet moment alone with a book makes me relax. I need more of that in 2017. I need to make more time for me and the things I love.
I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the others in the series. I found it slow and lagging. Not saying I hated it because I definitely didn’t, but it’s just not my favorite book so far.
Delirium (Delirium, #1) by Lauren Oliver | 3/5
Looking at my rating, it seems like I may not have enjoyed this book. But let’s be real…I did like it. It was your typical dystopian YA romance and I’m a sucker for those types of books. I want to continue with the series because the idea is intriguing and I want to see where the story goes. I wrote a review that should be up next week.
Frozen Tides (Falling Kingdoms, #4) by Morgan Rhodes | 4/5
Now this book was great! I could do without Lucia but oh well. I fell more in love with Magnus in this book than before. HELP.
The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia | 5/5
This book surprised me. I loved it. It’s sexy, funny, and intense. Read it, I promise you’ll love it.
Lover Enshrined (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #6) by J.R. Ward | 3/5
Didn’t like this one as much as the others. I was a bit let down, to be honest.
So there you go y’all. Those were my books read in December. Be prepared for new additions to my blog coming soon!
