My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s 2017 Reading Challenges

2017-reading-challenges

Last year was the first time that I decided to participate in online reading challenges, and I’m so glad I did. (Spoilers: I crushed it.)

In addition to crossing a number of books off my TBR, I was also able to keep on top of new releases. Although there is more work to be done — my TBR is still out of control and I missed out a ton of 2016 reads I hope to get to this year — I plan to participate in four more challenges.

You can peruse my 2017 plans below and click on the sign up links to join in on the reading challenge fun!

2016 marked the very first year I participated in online reading challenges, and I more than killed every … single … one.

Read: I will most certainly be tackling another set of challenges this year. But before I write up that massive post, keep reading to see how I did in 2016.

Sweet Summer Child, the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer is Here

Game of Thrones Season 6 StillWinds of Winter may still be a long time coming, but at least HBO has finally released an official trailer for the sixth season of their hit fantasy series Game of Thrones.

The trailer refuses to answer some pivotal questions — like if Jon Snow is dead (which we all know much like Tupac he isn’t) — but does reveal what some of our faves and least faves have been up to since the Season 5 finale.
