Reading:



A Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan. It's the seventh book in the Wheel of Time series, which is an ultra-long but pretty good fantasy book series. Although his actual writing isn't that stunning, Robert Jordan is a master at plot and characterization, which make his books something I really strive to emulate. I'm about 2/3 of the way through A Crown of Swords, and it's quite good, as always. :)

Wearing:




My new hat that I'm totally and completely obsessed with.

(I didn't get it for xmas, in case you're wondering, I bought it myself beforehand.)

Reflecting:

On how incredibly lucky I am to live in the amazing house that I do with the amazing family that I have, and how much I should be giving to those who don't have the same opportunities.

Before I go, I created a survey for you to give me feedback on my blog! Click here to take it - I'd really appreciate it. :)

Well, that's all for today. What have y'all been up to this month? (besides the holidays lmao.)   Comment below, and have an amazing day. :)

Namarië,
Ellie

  1. that hat is so cute <3

    I'll have to check out the series. i just finished the perks to being a wallflower. it was definitely interesting... (if i'm ever going to get off my butt and write a novel, the plot would be about a girl who thinks a boys likes her, after all there's been staring and texting and all her friends think so.. until *plot twist* he doesn't. and if anyone thinks it's unrealistic they can eat a hamburger because look what happened to me)

    well. nothing tbh. school. pinterest. OH OH OH. i did have dance performance because it's christmas. well it was xmas. other than that.... i tried drawing? did photography? i'm so boring and i have no life xD

    1. Thank you! :)
      It's really good. It's quite long, though.
      Oh! I read a few chapters of that book once, and I really liked it. I should finish it.....maybe it'll go on my 2016 TBR. I already have a few books on there: the Gabriel Allon series (about an art restorer and spy) by Daniel Silva and Valiant Ambition by Nathaniel Philbrick (MY FAVORITE HISTORY AUTHOR IS COMING OUT WITH A NEW BOOK ABOUT MY FAVORITE TIME PERIOD EMILY I AM MORE EXCITE THAN I HAVE BEEN IN A LONG TIME.) That one doesn't come out till May, though. *sighs*
      Pinterest is right, I go to look up something on one of my boards and get distracted for hours.
      I've been attempting a bit of drawing this month too - mainly backs of people with long hair, and one was a contour of a girl carrying an umbrella with her hair blowing in the wind. I thought of putting them in this post, actually - but I'm nowhere near as good an artist as most of the people on here, so then I was like "eh let's not". I might make a page for my drawings on my Tumblr, though. We'll see.

    The hat really suits you, it looks really nice. (good shirt choice as well)
    Either you've changed the header or it's not loading on my laptop, either way I like the new header xD
