We have had a battered old brown beanbag since my daughter was very tiny. And even though it’s lost any kind of shape she still loves it. Sitting on it, using it as a seat for her teddies and also using it to hide things under. It’s seen a lot of use and you can tell it’s much loved. So when I was asked if we would like to try out the Mini-B Kids Beanbag Chair I agreed straight away as I knew that my daughter was going to love one.
Last year I read 67 books, and it was the first year that I tracked my reading with Goodreads. You can see the full list of books I read and rated here. I hope to Goodreads to track my reading again this year. I also want to make sure that I include reviews of the book I have read on there, as I find the review on there are really helpful to me. I am not however going to increase my reading goal for this year. My 2018 reading goals are 24 books, which is what my target was for 2017.
I have had so much fun reading in 2017, I have discovered some amazing new authors and read some of my now favourite books. I read a total of 67 books throughout 2017. I set myself a challenge of 24 books but I just found so many books that I wanted to read I couldn’t stop!
I was so intrigued when I heard about a book that was a mix of high fantasy and steampunk. I love fantasy and I have been curious about steampunk for a while but I have never quite got round to reading a steampunk novel. Because of it’s mix of genre’s The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova seemed to be the perfect book to introduce me, gently, to a genre I really wanted to jump in to. I was not disappointed! I definitely made the right choice to read The Alchemists of Loom, in fact after reading it I went out and bought all of the other books by Elise Kova that I could find!
I wasn’t sure what to call this, it isn’t a post filled with new year’s resolutions and it’s isn’t really a bucket list as such. I guess it really just is a collection of the hopes and dreams for 2018. I am trying not to put too much pressure on myself as I know that stress of any sort causes massive flare up issues for me. I hope that I can achieve everything on this list, but if I don’t… there is always next year!
