My Best & Worst books of 2017.
These are books I read in 2017, not only published in 2017. My list is all over the place with children all the way to adult books. I have some honorary mentions as well.
I got a new camera as an early Christmas gift from my husband. It is the standard Go Pro Hero Sessions, which is said to be the best for a Go Pro newbie. So I've made a practice video where I'm just messing with some settings * do a mini book haul!
Author mentioned: X (Xela) Culletto. Her book is called Girl Vs. I was sent a copy for an honest review! Music:
The music used in this was free to use from the Go Pro App!
Hey everybody! I have got a few new followers thanks to the interview I did on the Booklikes blog. Thanks for having me Kate, and thanks everyone who followed me and commented on the blog post.
I thought I would share with everyone my reading wrap up for November. I read a lot, so the video is long. Feel free to put me on double speed. I do that all the time to be honest, because there are so many great videos and so little time.
What have you read in November? Do you Booktube? Let me know. :)
P.S. Not mentioned in this video is a book I DNF'd yesterday, which was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Sadly, it ended up not being for me, at least in this present moment.

♫SAVED (Charlie's Song) from LOST w Lyrics The Bangkok Five --Yeah, that Charlie from the TV show Lost…because I loved that show and this book brings back my memories of loving that show. Honestly, the mystery, the existential feelings it evokes, remind me so much of that show.♫
Although, I was more obsessed with Jack...
Book Title: Nil On Fire
Author: Lynne Matson
Series: Nil #3
Genre: YA, Mystery Thriller
Source: Kindle eBook (Library)
OVERALL RATING: 4/5 STARS
This book took almost two weeks for me to finish, which wasn't entirely the books fault, it was mostly RL. That being said, while I was reading this, I was constantly distracted, and it was mostly thoughts of life and existence and the ending of it. Freaky thoughts that kind of spooked me, and it's essentially what made reading this such an arduous undertaking for me.
Overall, this is a fitting end to this series, despite my not liking the main character, Skye, as much as I did in the second book…she's was just...annoying, smackably so. It's told from three POV's, which includes Skye, Rives and Nil…yeah the island has a voice. At first I was annoyed by that, but eventually it makes sense why the Author did it this way. There's a lot of new characters introduced in this book, and it's kind of hard to keep them all straight at first. Although, I did especially like Molly and Davey...oh yeah, and Hafthor too.
Main Characters: 4/5
Secondary Characters: 4.3/5
The Feels: 4.5/5
Theme or Tone: 4/5
Flow (Writing Style): 3.5/5
Backdrop (World Building): 4.2/5
Book Cover: 5/5
Ending: 5/5 Cliffhanger: Nope!
Will I continue this series? It turns out there is a another book, which is actually Skye's Uncle Scott's Journal. It's also free on Amazon!
