Quarter Inventory: Winter 2016

January – March 2016

Last year, I decided to make my Monthly Inventory into a Quarterly Inventory. It’s a lot of formatting for a monthly post and honestly, nothing that exciting happens…usually.

Winter 2016 has been a monumental few months! Not only did I publish my 500th post but I also made the leap to self-hosting at the end of February. It was more than a little overwhelming but I think I have a handle on everything now. I still need to update some things on the site due to the change in themes and formatting but I’m really happy with everything and glad I made the decision to switch.

*Note: If the review is available, click on the cover! However, due to the nature of my blog (ie I review whole series) it often takes me a few weeks to publish a full review (pending book availability) so look forward to seeing some of these reviews in the upcoming weeks/months if there is no link available!


Amber Smoke (The Escaped #1) Changing His Game (The Reynolds Brothers, #1) Air Awakens (Air Awakens, #1) Bad Romance Melt With You (A Totally 80's Romance)


I thought it would be fun to keep track of my reading progress from my Kobo this year. While I do own a Kindle now, I mostly use my Kobo for everyday reading. One of my goals this year is to increase the % of finished novels on my Kobo with my various challenges.

  • Stats as of February 10, 2016
    • % Of Library Complete: 16%
    • # of Books Finished: 434
    • # of Total Reading Hours: 1739
  • Stats as of March 31, 2016
    • % Of Library Complete: 17%
    • # of Books Finished: 452
    • # of Total Reading Hours: 1808

While 1% increase may not seem like a lot, considering I have ~300+ books on my Kobo, it’s a great feeling!
