Can't believe that the first month of 2015 has well and truly passed us. For me, it was a pretty good month. Aside from having to return to school after spending the vast majority of the month lounging around being lazy and loving every moment. Gee, holidays were good!
I did get a good start on my reading challenge and celebrated my third blogoversary! I would have loved to say I read more and posted more, but at least all 4 of the books I read were really epic reads. A great way to start the year!
I also read To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han, a cute young adult contemporary (my review here). I admittedly had a few problems with it but enjoyed it a hell of a lot. It's a book begging to be re-read, it was just that good! I took it on holiday with me which was a great decision. I'm literally dying for book two which speaking of, finally has a cover! It's gorgeous and will match the first book perfectly.
My week vacay consisted of: Diving/bellyflopping off rocks into a shallow rock pool only to regret it later on, collecting jelly blobber, climbing on weird rock formations and grazing myself multiple times, visiting cousins whom I discovered wrote fanfic (we had heaps to talk about once I discovered this) and marathoning season one of Heroes because you know... save the cheerleader, save the world.
Earlier on in the month before my coastal getaway (say getaway and it sounds ten times fancier) I worked, got a new iPhone 5, spent way to much money on Boost smoothies and reduced christmas candy stockings, caught up with some friends including the fabulous Francoise, and also watched and throughly enjoyed Into the Woods. But of course, a school holiday is not a school holiday without visiting Ikea. You wouldn't believe the mischief and weird adventuring that goes down when my family (more like tribe) visits Ikea.
This month I'm focusing on getting my blog into shape and also getting settled into Year 10. But mostly I'll be counting down the days until February 7th (2 DAYS EXCLUDING TODAY). Which by the way is not just any normal day. It's the day I'll finally get to see One Direction live after four years of being way too obsessed with them. Gosh I'm not looking forward to dealing with that bout of post concert depression! Twitter followers, I apologise in advance.
I'm hoping to read these lovely titles and more this month. SUPER THRILLED TO OWN THEM ALL!
How was your January? Any exciting things popping up this month?
