Merry Christmas! Well, its almost Christmas, which why this post is a day early. This week, for me, has been full of Christmas preparation, which I can happily say is now done. Aside from Christmas craziness, I’ve been having a blast taking part in Kim’s Christmas collaboration, over at Later Levels, and we still have six more posts to go! My sister arrived back home on Friday and she has now got me hooked on a TV show, Orphan Black, which I’ll probably end up binge watching over the new year, so keep your eyes peeled for a First Impressions post in 2018.
What have I been reading?
Despite how busy the past week has been, I’ve managed to complete my annual traditional of reading: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe; Letters from Father Christmas and A Christmas Carol. These three books have taken me past my goal of reading 50 books in 2017. At the moment, Goodreads say I have read 51 books, but I think I can manage to squeeze one more book in before the end of the year. Here are a couple more fun facts about the reading I’ve done in 2017 (according to Goodreads):
- The amount of pages I’ve read total to 20,316.
- The shortest book I read was A Christmas Carol with 160 pages.
- The longest book I read was It with 1.166 pages.
- My average rating for books on Goodreads was 3.8, I guess next year I need to be less on the fence about the books I read!
What have I been playing?
Not a lot of games this week. I have dabbled in Total War: Warhammer 2, mainly playing the Mortal Empires campaign as the Bretonnians. Unfortunately, the Wood Elves destroyed my chivalric kingdom, which I’m not entirely upset about, as the Wood Elves are awesome.
I’me been dabbling in Final Fantasy XIV, mainly riding around on Santa Bear. So here’s another screenshot of my Santa Bear:
And no, I won’t stop using my Santa Bear, once Christmas is over… unless I find another mount I fall in love with.
What am I blogging about this week?
First off, Christmas Day and Boxing Day’s posts are going to be festive themed pictures, that I like. I won’t be around Christmas Day and if I am around Boxing Day, it won’t be until very late in the day. I will be back on Wednesday 27th with another post for Kim’s Christmas collaboration. These posts will continue daily for the rest of the week. There will also be the X-Men post that didn’t manage to complete for this week, posted next Saturday. At some point, I’ll write a post about my favourite games of 2017.
And that has been my week! This will also be the last update post of 2017, but don’t worry the next update post will be posted in 1st January- you can expect it to be quite a long one as I’ll be talking about my plans for 2018.
I would like to finish this update post by thanking everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, this past year. Everyone who has shown their support by reading/liking/commenting and following are amazing. Its been over two years since I started this blog and it blows my mind that there are people willingly giving up their time to read my ramblings. So thank you and I wish you all a very merry Christmas!
