Monthly Wrap-Up #1 | Jan 2017

This is my first “wrap-up” post, so I don’t know exactly how to do it. Please write any suggestions or ideas in the comments below.

This month I visited the Cairo International Book Fair ( I promise I’ll make a post about it someday this week) on my birthday! This was the perfect birthday celebration for me. Surrounded with thousands of books. Also, thank you to my friends, Maryam and Habiba, who arranged me a surprise party a couple of days before my birthday. You made my whole year!


Read:

This month, I read only 7 books. All of them in ebook format except for the last two. I’m trying to stop depending on ebooks and convert to physical copies, so I guess that’s a start.

As I mentioned above, the book fair took part this month, so I got some books with low prices. I know it seems like a huge list, but come on, the fair is once a year and I became weak in front of all those colourful covers and discounts. Also, I received some as my birthday present from dad.

  1. Your wrap up is excellent! You had a great reading month and books always make the best birthday presents. So happy that your friends gave you a surprise party. It must make you feel so good to have such loving friends.

    • Thank you! Yes! I would prefer a book to a diamond when it comes to presents. Offer me knowledge not some useless piece of jewelry. Even if you make friends with everyone, there’ll be this bunch who knows how to fix your days ❤ If you’ve found them, don’t ever give them up.

    • I did! You must read the book before watching the movie, I’m telling you. No movie has yet proven us wrong with the book better than movie rule. Would you care to suggest a book for reviewing on my latest post? Thank you!

    • Thank you! I won’t write a review about this one,since it’s not actually a book. It was a wattpad that fortunately got transformed into an ebook. So here’s my thoughts if you\d like to read it. It’s a super light book with a little too much errors. Funny. Brief. Not so much, actually. Loads and loads of hw and assignments!

    • Quite the opposite of what I expected actually. The Girl On The Train got SO MUCH hype I was sure I’ll like it and then… And Before I Go To Sleep didn’t appeal to any of my friends but it’s now one of my favourites! Hype is not everything. Did you watch Before I Go To Sleep movie?

    • Thank you! Looks like February won’t be as fruitful. I’m literally writing this comment while doing my Chemistry assignment. Go and do it! Beautiful Disaster is much better than its sequel, the one I read that month. Have fun!

  2. Your wrap-up was perfect 🌸 And each blogger has their own style, so don’t stress too much about it! You had a really good reading month! Can’t wait to read your review of The Girl On The Train – I’ve never actually managed to finish it 🙈
