Welcome to the first Indulgence Insider of 2015! I still can’t believe another year is over, and instead of delving into the goal setting and planning, I’m taking some time out to enjoy last year’s achievements.
I’m also participating in my first Instagram challenge, the #hello2015bookchallenge and so far it’s a lot of fun. Follow my bookish adventures at: http://instagram.com/happyindulgence
Pierce Brown also liked one of my Instagram photos with Red Rising in it! I fangirled.
This month’s Read Play Blog topic is: “What games are you looking forward to in 2015?“? Post your answer, recommendation and currently playing on the 16th of the month or anytime during the month and link up!
Since my book shelves are double stacked and overflowing, I didn’t ask for any books for Christmas, although my birthday is coming up on January 30th so that might change. I did get a book gift card for Christmas though, which I’m excited to spend!
Review Copies – Physical
I Was Here by Gayle Forman – The Lucky Aussie Bloggers and Readers as a part of the Goodreads group were chosen by Simon & Schuster Australia to review exclusive ARCs of I Was Here! Can’t wait to pick this up!
The Vanishing Game by Kate Kae Myers – This was a surprise New Years present from Bloomsbury which sounds really creepy and chilling.
