January 2017 Reading Wrap Up

This month I unexpectedly discovered my love for audiobooks while having a cold. In retrospect, I’m surprised it took me so long to take it up, considering how exceptionally useful they are with memoirs. But better late than never, right?
In total I read 17 books this month:

This month I sat down and created my first book tag: Skam Book Tag | Original.

It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to perfect it, but I’m proud to say that it’s done!! I hope you had the time to check the tag out, and if you did, I hope you enjoyed the questions. Be sure to let me know if you plan on answering them yourself!

Honorable Mention:tumblr_obyer2nulf1vbeidjo9_500I finally got to watch one of my most anticipated movies: Hidden Figures.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of this ever since I watched the brilliant trailer a few months back:

Fun fact: I had a dream that I picked up a DVD of Hidden Figures, so the next day I was running to go see the film. And to say that I was blown away would be an understatement.

Based on a true story. A team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program’s first successful space missions.

I was so completely enamoured with everyone’s acting, but particularly with Taraji P. Henson’s. I’m thinking of picking up her memoir very soon because she had me on the edge of tears throughout the entire film. And I hope with all my heart that Hidden Figures wins all the awards and then some.tumblr_obyer2nulf1vbeidjo1_500giphytumblr_obyer2nulf1vbeidjo8_500tumblr_obyer2nulf1vbeidjo7_500tumblr_obyer2nulf1vbeidjo10_500


That was my January wrap-up, thank you for reading!
