The Sunday Post #6

The Sunday Post

Real Life

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can't actually believe that it is 2015! So I didn't feel like I got that much reading done this week, and yet actually I have (though not as much as normal!) The main thing I did this week though was go out in Birmingham for New Year, (that's where I went to Uni) and went out with my Uni friends! We had a great night (or at least I think we did!) though I broke my camera and have A LOT of bruises as proof of the night. Almost as good was the next day when we all vegged out in front of the TV eating crap food and bantering! There's never a dull moment with these girls and I love them all for it! 

Me (in the blue) with three of the Girls (we never actually managed to get a picture of all 6 of us this time round)

Read This Month
So I had a little bit of a moment this week and felt bad because I only read 6 books...then I realised, I read 6 books and that's still a lot, so actually I just have a problem! Stand out book of the week definitely goes to Shattered Bonds, the last in the Wicked Play series it had me in tears, I basically had no idea that I cared about the characters just as much as I apparently do.
