Mainly non-review because I buy so many and wanted to catch up!

  1. Woah looking at your 1 and 2 clues I'm like that's MEE! But thankfully the 3rd clue put it out, because I know who my Santa is already lol. It looks like we had exactly the same favourite books this year, except I still have to read TWATD.

    1. Ahaha I know I didn't want to make it too obvious. It's really the 3rd clue that ties it all together!

  2. You have excellent taste in favourite books for the year Jaz :D And, it's your blog, you are totally allowed to post as often as you're able.

    1. Why thank you (; I think so too. Have you read them? I really would like to post more though *sighs*

  3. HAHA Jaz, someone's obsessed with Sarah J Maas just a tad ;) But I'm also hugely excited for Illuminae 2 and ACOMAT. EEK.

    1. PROUD OF IT EM. I just love her writing so much. And OMG you didn't see her speak she's sooooo funny! Illuminae 2 will wreck me and A COURT OF MIST AND FURY OKG RHYSAND.

  4. Ahh Sarah J Maas - I am so jealous!!
    I have no patience to wait for Illuminae 2, I want it now!


    I keep neglecting my blog because of work/social life too, so I totally know where you're coming from. You did so much better than me when it came to reading too woop woop! And YAS to all the 2016 books. Gimme gimme!!
