2018 Reading Goals

Hi there! This is going to be a quick post of which I'll share 5 reading goals that I'm hoping to accomplish this year as well as 6 books/series that I'm quite excited to read. So without further ado, here we go.

5 Reading Goals

Read 52 books
This is the same amount of books that I tried to read last year. It's doable and I'm pretty sure that I can pass this easily.Read 40 paperbacks that I owned before 2018
This should not come as a surprise, considering the fact that currently I owned almost 200 unread books. Read 6 series
Even though I love standalones, there are just something fun about reading series, either dualogy, trilogy, or even more.Read 25.000 pages
This is the same amount of pages that I tried to read last year. And even though there's struggle at the end of last year, I'm pretty sure I can accomplish it this year.Read 35 new-to-me authors
It's doable and to be honest I'm perfectly fine if I can't accomplish it this year.
6 TBR Books/Series

Looking Through 2017

This is a pretty long overdue post because it's already January 28th when I started to write this post. But I still wanted to share my favorite books/series of 2017 as well as my reading goals progress. So without further ado, here we go:

2017 Favorite Books/Series
Here are my 2017 favorite books/series with the order of when I read them:
1. Tere Liye - Tentang Kamu
This is the first Tere Liye's book that I've read and I fell in love with it almost immediately. I enjoy the writing style, the story, almost everything in this book. I love it so much and it is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. 
2. Matthew Quick - The Silver Linings Playbook
This is a book that taught me to have more empathy towards other people in my life. It taught me to go easy and more understanding with other people's issues. Just because I didn't experience it doesn't mean that it's not real. I like this book for being raw and honest about mental illness. It's definitely a…

Hi there! Happy new year! Good bye 2017, with all the good and bad memories. And welcome 2018, may you bring new hope and energy for the upcoming year :D

Last December was a pretty hectic, happy, sad, crazy, and frustrating month. So many things happened, both good and bad for me. It's not an easy month, but finally it passed.

December 2017 Book Haul
I have been saving some money for December because there's a Harbolnas event coming up and I know I'm going to spend a lot of money because of the outrageous deals (check out my December 2016 as well as January 2017 posts for proof ;) ). And I was right, because held another sweet Harbolnas deals, complete with free shipping, so I can buy as many books as I desired and able to. So here it is, my still-not-complete books that I acquired on December 2017: (before Harbolnas):

September 2017 Wrap Up

September.. is a very interesting month for me. I started this month with so much joy because my family and I went on a vacation on my birthday. And then it started to went downhill until the end of the month where there's just so many things to do and not enough time to do it. Oh, and I also (for the first time) unable to go to Big Bad Wolf. It was a bit frustrating at first because I really wanted to go but the situation was just not right for me. So I ended up buying books from the jastip (I don't know what they're called, it's like personal shopper but specifically for discounted items) on Instagram. And.. my life was pretty much okay ever since then.

In September, I also participate on @hanabookreview and @dblueholics's #bbwreadathon2017. So basically on September I only read books that I bought on the previous BBW event. And it resulted in me only picking up 3 books this month. And here they are:

1. Rainbow Rowell - Eleanor & Park
This is my second Rainbow…

I had a very good reading time until half of the month. And then I got so lazy to pick up any book until early August. Maybe it's because of the book that I tried to read or maybe the workload finally get to me and it made me unable to read. I'm not so sure. But here are 5 books that I managed to finish this month:
