My life/ books I’ve finished

In terms of getting through books I feel I’m doing quite well at the moment, but in terms of keeping to my new years resolutions and bookish goals, not so much. 😛 I have approximately 15 books out from both the college and public library and another 5 on order. I will say this: there are two things in life I have no willpower with, they are food and books! I’ve been craving books excessively for a long time now and knowing me this will never change 😉 but I so need to keep to my new years resolutions.. Also it looks like the Amsterdam cruise is not going to happen as dad said it’s all sold out :/ maybe we’ll go somewhere else and then perhaps not…. :/

Anyway, other than that life has been exciting as the usual college week is. I still seem to be ahead of my work (this is not a boast as I know this could change any moment) in class despite the fact that I often daydream and sneak visits onto social media 😛 I have also had a meeting in my local library about volunteering there soon and what jobs I’d do and my, it sounds promising! 😀 They said I could help out with behind the scenes stuff like cataloguing as I’m not a very confident person when it comes to dealing with the public. But that’s not all they said I could also link my reviews of my books from this site onto the library’s Facebook page 😮 I could not believe this and I also couldn’t believe my library hadn’t heard of sites such as Netgalley and Edelweiss as I thought all head librarians read ARCs so to know what books to get in. But not this time……

So, that’s pretty much all that happened this week! Next week I hope to get down to more reading and keep to my bookish goals cause dad will only make me take a large quantity of books back if I don’t get the numbers down soon 😛

Books I’ve recently added to my tbr

Deception PointThe Drowned WorldHigh-Rise

Deception Point by Dan Brown

Since I enjoyed Digital Fortress so much and this one sounds along similar lines I thought why not? Dan Brown is so so good at making (like I said in my review) boring scientific topics exciting and crafting brilliant action scenes. When I have the time though!


The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard

I’ve always been on the lookout for the deep, philosophical type of fiction and when I saw this in my college library catalogue….. I thought gimme but need to get my reading piles under control at home first 😛


High Rise by J.G. Ballard

When I was younger and loved dystopian literature so much, I used to turn up my nose at the standalone classics saying they were too short to possibly pack a punch. Nowadays I want to find out why those classics became classics and to be honest, because my reading pile is so big I’m kinda grateful for short standalones! 😛 😉 My tbr will never stop growing….
