Good news! You still have 1 day to accomplish your 2017 resolutions!

In My Reading Life

I finally finished A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. Holy crap, that was a big book. Right now, I’m desperately trying to finish The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis. I want to finish it before next year.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Christmas!
  2. Re-watching Harry Potter movies for the millionth time.
  3. I got a new phone! It’s a Samsung Galaxy. I’m still trying to figure out how to use it.
  4. Since I have a phone, I can actually use my Instagram account.
  5. All the 2017 wrap-up posts are making my TBR list explode. You guys are so good at making me buy books.

Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!


  1. Yay for getting a new phone! My sister keeps bugging me to get a smartphone, she says I'm missing out on so much! Like Instagram!

  2. Love what you did with your graphic! So fun! I am on my third Galaxy and I am happy with it. I always get the phone my daughter has (though mine is a 6 and her's is the 8 Edge) so she can tell me how to do things. This past week has been such a book love fest. I enjoyed so many year end posts and had so much fun making my own lists. Happy New Year!

  3. Awesome week you had! I can't wait to see what good books will be out in 2018!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  4. I am watching HP right now! Love the marathon being on. Love my Galaxy. I agree that my TBR has been expanding with all the year end posts. Have a great week!

  5. I really enjoyed The Wolf Road so I will be looking forward to your thoughts on that one. Congrats on getting a new phone! Happy New Year!

  6. I can't even remember what my 2017 Resolutions were to know if I broke them or not.... let's just assume I didn't make the cut :) I've got HP on in the background today and trying to get all my 2017 blog wrap-ups done. Happy New Year, AJ!!!

  7. Lol about resolutions. I don't even make any anymore. :)

    And yay for the phone! I don't know how to work em either.

    Happy New Year.

  8. Congrats on the new phone! It's a good one. Enjoy week and Happy New Year!!! 🎊🎉

  9. I have been watching Harry Potter over the past week as well. I never tire of those movies! Happy new year!

  10. Oh gosh, I've added so many books to my TBR recently. It's insane! LOL I love reading people's best-of lists though.


  11. Happy New Year, and congratulations on the new phone! Have fun with it!

  12. I have got to read more this year! I'm not sure where I'll find the time but I need to do it to tackle the tbr. My goals for the year are quite lofty so I need to keep motivation on. I was so busy with these festive blog posts and setting up 2018 challenges that I didn't watch a single film! Here's to a great reading year!

  13. Happy New Year!!!! Hope it will be great year for you and that you get through that TBR list...

    Nope, no new year's resolutions. Except that I want to read at least one Donna Tartt book this year....

    This is what I'm currently reading:

  14. I've been wanting to watch Harry Potter all week, but I haven't had a chance yet. I should do that today. :) Happy New Year!

  15. Happy New Year! I love rewatching old favorite movies on New Year's Eve. Enjoy 2018! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  16. Sounds like a great week! I have all the Harry Potter movies on DVD and should watch them. Of course, they seem to play on one TV channel or another all the time too. Come see my week here. Happy New Year and happy reading!

  17. Love the balloons on the graphic. So fun. :) I've heard amazing things about A Conjuring of Light but I've yet to read anything by Schwab. Hooray for the new phone! The first few weeks of trying to figure it all out are always fun.

  18. I've only seen the first two of the Harry Potter films. Happy New Year. Come see what I'm reading.
