Aussie YA Bloggers: Secret Santa Blog Hop 2016

Posted 8th December 2016 by Wattle in Blog Hops & Memes / 12 Comments

This year I’m taking part in the Aussie YA Bloggers & Readers Secret Santa ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve not done one of these in the bookish community before, so I’m really thrilled to be taking part!

Now I get to answer some questions and leave a few hints for my santee.

The Questions

1. What are your top 5 favourite books this year?
I thought this was going to be hard, but I guess I haven’t read that many books this year heh. In no particular order, my favourites were:
Awakened by the Wolf by Kristal Hollis
Clancy of the Undertow by Christopher Currie
Kings Rising by C.S. Pacat
The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles by Eli Easton

2. What are your top 5 favourite Aussie YA books this year?
Ummmm…I only read one? *hides* it was a really good one though!
Clancy of the Undertow by Christopher Currie

Fail. I’ll have to read more next year!

3. How did you go with your Goodreads challenge?
I’ve read 42 of my 52 goal, which isn’t bad considering I stopped reading in July and only started again a couple of weeks ago. I’m not sure if I’ll reach 52 by the end of the year, but I *do* read a lot over Christmas usually, since there’s never anything on tv!

4. What is your favourite blogging moment of 2016?
Designing my own header for the first time in years was pretty fun.

5. What are your blogging goals for 2017?
Blog more – pretty much sums it up! Keep this blog open, even ๐Ÿ˜‰

6. What books are you looking forward to in 2017?
All the ones I’ve not read yet! This blog isn’t really about what’s coming out next year (though there’ll be a few new releases, I’m sure), but it’s about what is on my shelves now (I have a lot of books!) There’s plenty I’ve forgotten about (there’s also duplicates as I cannot keep track of what I do have, but let’s not talk about that).

7. What is your favourite thing about the Aussie YA community?
I do love everyone’s enthusiasm for the things they enjoy.

3 clues for my santee:
1. We’re on opposite sides of the country.
2. Your site layout shows the beauty of nature.
3. You’ve marked over 800 books as ‘read’ on Goodreads.
