12 Books on My To Read List in 2017!



Okay, so here are the books I am DEFINITELY reading this year

- Throne of Glass series (A 6 book series so lets see if i dig it )
- The Infernal Devices ( I'll read the trilogy if it catches me )
- One Dark Throne
-The illuminae Files book 3
- A Crown of Wishes
- A Court of Mist and Fury
- The Forgetting
- The Reader
- The Sun is Also A Star
- Iron Gold
- Our Dark Duet
- Unwind
- The Book Thief done!
- ANYTHING Marissa Meyer publishes!

As you can see my reading has been quite taken over by Young Adult Fiction but I also hope to read more adult fiction this year. I have recently been LOVING the adult fiction genre. Contemporary fiction is rarely my thing but I know I will have to include some just so I can keep my brain calm after some really good books that are a part of a series which suck me in and leave me waiting a year.

My reading goals include:

  • Read a least one classic this year, maybe polish of Jane Austen as I believe I've only one of her novels left.
  • Read more adult fiction.
  • Write more literary reviews on what I have read.
  • Read at least 2 books of historical fiction.

My New 2017 Ban.do Planner


I've had a ABM Planner for two years and I have loved it. The size is perfect for fitting in every bag I grab and run out the door with and I loved their sticker sheet and fun illustrations and quotes.

This year I decided to try a ban.do medium sized planner because ABM is not making their planner this year and planners have been a wonderful way for me to hold myself accountable to my own productivity.

Love
  • The hard sturdy cover.
  • The laminated tabs.
  • The size is perfect in medium! 
  • Bright colours!
  • The fact that the pages don't bleed my marker.
  • It's so sturdy it can fold completely with ease with it's ring binding

Hate
  • How thin the pages are, I feel like I'll rip them by mistake any time I try to turn a page.
  • The calender view is too tiny and cramped
  • Lack of more Christmasy page 
  • HATE those colour blocked out dates on my calendar. I'm not even in the states you see so...no thanks!

Now for a love hate, it's a 17 month planner which I didn't want because I like completely leaving the baggage of a year behind when I move into a new one, I do this ceremoniously through my planners. My ban.do planner though a 17 isn't super bulky  and since my planner from ABM seriously died on me around September or October. I did need something to handle November and December meetings.

All in all, it certainly will be a new adventure, with new graphics, not as minimalist as I'm used to but hopefully, the super bright colours and business will help push me into a different time in my life.

To the busy, to the bold, onward to victory!
