Thoughts: I started Their Fractured Light and am loving it so far. I probably would've gotten more reading done if it hadn't been board games night. Oh well!

Tuesday, January 5
Pages Read: 82
Complete? none
Thoughts: This is a much slower reading week so far than normal. But I know it's because I'm struggling to get back into the routine of school. Still adoring Their Fractured Light, though!

Thoughts: AHHHH THIS BOOK IS SO STRESSFUL AND I LOVE IT. I also had to really work hard to convince myself to NOT stay up passed my bedtime to keep reading. I'll definitely be finishing this tomorrow, though!

Complete? Their Fractured Light!
Thoughts: I am super sad the Starbound trilogy is over, but MAN was that a great ending. I also started reading Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng because I went to the school library during my prep and have no self-control.

Friday, January 8
Pages Read: 0 (sort of?)
Complete? 1
Thoughts: I did read like a chapter and a half of an ebook I've been slowly working my way through forever while I was waiting for a friend to show up... but other than that. It was jr high dance night and I agree to help supervise, so I came home, took a nap, went for dinner with a friend and then didn't get home until late.

Saturday, January 9
Pages Read: 134+
Complete? Everything I Never Told You & Moth (Total: 3)
Thoughts: So I decided to finish that stupid ebook (Moth) since I've been picking through it since like May of last year. Does that even count towards my completed books? Oh well, whatever, I say it does. Review on that coming and it's not nice. In better news, Everything I Never Told You was fantastic and heartbreaking and I'd definitely recommend it!

Thoughts: I'm halfway through A Natural History of Dragons and I am absolutely ADORING it. It's so cute and I love everything about it.
