Blogging and Reading 2018 Resolutions

Happy New Year fellow Book lovers!

I’ve been thinking lately how I don’t really set New Year’s Resolutions but this year something has been nagging at me to set them for my reading and blogging goals. The end of 2016 and start of 2017 were hard times and 2017 was a year of so many exciting things for me such as graduating from university. I hold a BA in English Literature now. I got accepted onto two masters programme’s and chose to do an MA in English Studies. My blog reached 500 followers, I started receiving Physical Arcs, I got invited to go down to London to an exhibition as part of a blogger/press thing. (I couldn’t go but the opportunity was still amazing)

But the year was also really hard, my anxiety gave me so many hurdles I had to try jump over. My dad, brother and sister all had health scares. We are losing another love one who is fighting a battle with cancer. 2018 will be another hard year but I’m pledging here and now that i’m also going to make sure it’s an amazing one.

So here are my 2018 Reading and Blogging specific goals:

Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu | Spoiler Free Review

Title: BATMAN Nightwalker by Marie Lu Mari.jpg
Genre: YA Fantasy/ Superhero
Pages: 272

Synopsis

Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.

Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.

In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.

Review:

‘but looking out, all he saw was an ocean of light, the shimmering heart of Gotham City spread out before him. He didn’t know everything his future held for him, not yet, but he knew that whatever it was, it would remain here.
It looked like a place worth protecting.
it looked like home.’
