So it’s more than halfway through 2018 and I have read 59 books so far. Woot, woot. I’ve already reached by goal of 52 books (*pats self on the back*), so I upped the challenged to 80 books. I think I’ll be able to handle that. I mean, if I wanted to be ambitious, I would have set my goal to 100 books, but the inner lazy reader in me was protesting.
Anywho, I wanted to quickly discuss some of my favourite books so far (and series, hehe. Yeah, it’s technically more than one book, but it’s my blog and I can do what I want to!).
Without further ado, here’s my favourites in descending order.

It’s only April, and I think I have already found my new favourite book of the year. And one of my favourites of all time. Sure, there are only about eight more months left until the end of the year, but I haven’t read a book in a long time that spoke to me and that I related to as much as We Are the Ants.
The whole time I was reading the book, I kept nodding at everything the narrator said. I remember thinking I wanted to write a book dealing with the same issues/themes, but then I realized I’d never be able to write a book as well-done and beautifully written as this one. We Are the Ants perfectly captures everything I want to say. It’s basically my thoughts and feeling about the world written in a book.

It’s my second Booklook post! I decided maybe I’d pair these with reviews of the books I’m highlighting. I don’t know yet. We’ll see. I don’t want this blog to be solely books. I still want to add in some fashion. But I’m indecisive. So I guess it’ll be a surprise.
Anyways, if you haven’t read my previous Booklook post, this series is basically me drawing fashion and style inspirations from the books I’ve read. I’ll usually take the inspiration from the setting, the character description (sometimes their outfits are described) or both.

Happy belated January wrap-up! Yup, I’m very behind. Blame either work (for making me tired) or me (for just being a lazy bum). Either one is correct.
Anyways, I read (and listened) to a grand total of … five books. It’s not the biggest amount, but I’m very proud of it. I call myself a lazy reader, which means I want to read all the books but I lack the motivation to start and actually read them. So I end up reading one book over months.
But with the reading goals I set for myself, I’m way more motivated to pick up a book. Which is great for my reading (but not so great for my wallet because once I start reading all the unread books on my shelves, then I, of course, need to buy more!! It’s the only logical conclusion).

(Note: Wow, this is going up super late! Oh wells…)
As you may already know, I love books. My dream is to have my own personal library at my house. But the crazy thing is that I don’t really read a lot of books within a year. Sometimes I just don’t feel like reading anything, or I just don’t have enough time to read. Also, if I read too much, my eyes get strained and I get migraines, so that’s no fun. But this year, I decided to set reading goals and set an amount of books I want to read.

I love fashion (as if you didn’t already know), but I also love books. Perhaps just as much, if not more. I love reading and getting lost in a book and being invested in the characters’ lives, journey and adventure.
So I decided to start this new series on my blog called Booklook where I draw inspiration for outfits from the books I’ve read. I want to do reviews sometime soon, too.
Anyways, I decided to start off this series with an outfit inspiration from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
