Read The Books You Buy Challenge 2016

Hosted by The Book Date


RULES.

  • Books have been bought in 2016 by you or you can decide to include from and including June 2015 buys. Anything previous to that definitely falls into the dusty TBR realm! There is a challenge somewhere in the book world for that!
  • Can be ebook, print book or audiobook
  • You can decide whether you include books bought in 2016 second hand or in book fairs etc.
  • You may adjust your level if needs be during the year.
  • Books for this challenge can also be included in other challenges.
  • Runs from 1st January to 31st of December 2016

So I'm not sure which percentage to choose, probably 100% though. I plan on reading all the books I buy, otherwise why buy them? I will list my purchased, read and reviewed books here. Happy reading everyone!

  1. The Iron Warrior - Julie Kagawa
  2. Soldier - Julie Kagawa
  3. The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
  4. The Court Of Mist And Fury - Sarah J. Maas
  5. Hollow City - Ransom Riggs
  6. Heartless - Marissa Meyer


MID-YEAR CHECK IN
So out of the books I have bought, which is around 10, I've read 2. The ratio of 100% went right out the window... but I am not giving up! Really, my reading has taken a hit this summer with so much to do, but I plan on buckling down. Will my plan fizzle out? I can't tell you, but I can say I will try my best.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
