Hello 2017 – Bye 2016

I am painfully aware that this post is like… one and a half month late. And I could easily find a ton of excuses, but really… who cares? I am back.

Before I start in on greeting the New Year, I want to take a moment to send 2016 properly off. Even though the year was a shitstorm trainwreck in many regards, it also brought me a lot of bookish joy. My only hope is that the coming year will hold even more.

Which reminds me, I should probably catch you up on the last month of 2016.

Book Boxes:

In December, I received four book boxes, but because it’s been so long, I’ll just run through them quickly here.

Fairyloot – Sci-fi Adventure

This gorgeous box included:
– A full size Star Wars Pop by Funko.

– Cupcake-scented Kryptonite Bath Powder from Geeky Clean

– Exclusive Red Rising Pins desined by Taratjah

Flashfall by Jenny Moyer, complete with signed bookplate, letter and bookmark.

And, I have to take a moment to say this: Jen, you’re amazing. and I am so glad that I were subscribed for 7 months. Your note made me all teary, and I absolutely love the extra swag. It was a super nice thing to do, and I am so going to miss your box. Already these two months have felt like something was missing.

Phew… Now that all the mushy stuff is over… Let’s take a look forward, yeah?
In 2017, I want to read 150 books. I got off to a great start in January, with a wrap-up off 25, but cosidering my rapidly growing TBR, I don’t know if it’ll help anything.

I’m not going to say much else. Although, I am working on unboxings for the two January boxes I recieved. (hint: they were made of awesome) and also working on an indepth review of some Bookworm Candles and Crafts mini tins. Woop.
I hope everyone arrived safely on this side of the New Year, and let’s all hope it won’t take two months until I post again.
