GoodReads Status Updates

I’m disappointed that I didn’t read even half of the goals I set. It turns out I’m having an issue balancing school, my blog and life. I think going to school is still too new for me  so, this didn’t turn out to be the best time for me. I’m still happy I got to read as much as I could, considering how busy I was. Yay, for reading on the bus, because otherwise I never would have had the time.

About The Dark Reading Room

I LOVE reading and I have hundreds of awesome books on my bookshelf. I started blogging so I could connect with like-minded people and share my thoughts on what I read with others. I’m pretty open minded when it comes to reading, I enjoy reading anything like; true crime, biographies and so on but my favourite genre is YA paranormal books. Non-book related things: I’m a metalhead, I love going to concerts, some of my favourite TV shows are Supernatural, True Blood, Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Firefly... I’m a hardcore gamer and play games like COD, Halo, Gears of War, Borderlands, Final Fantasy, The Last of Us, Dead Rising and much more!

  1. At least you had some progress so that’s what counts, like Amanda says Flail not Fail! It would be hard to balance this with life and school so don’t get discouraged, you did way more challenges than me! 😀
