It’s the last day of 2016 and all I want to do is cry. Not cry, but reflect on everything I did WRONG this year. I’m joking, a little. But, since I’ve been wrapping up the last year in the previous post, I’m here to wrap up December 2016 and it was a pretty good month if I say. So, let’s get on with the last post of 2016 for Ann’s Reading Corner.

For Christmas, I asked all of my family for the soundtrack to Hamilton because I was thinking that no one would buy it for me. Well, I was wrong. I actually got to copies and I returned the one to buy a shoe rack. But that’s beside the fact. I got the soundtrack and it is the only thing that I have been listening to. I am in love with it because I can hear and listen and dance to it whenever I want to. I may or may not have been listening to it while I type this post and it is totally normal!
Kelly Clarkson – It’s Quiet Uptown
Here I go again with the Hamilton talk. But this version of this song made ma ball like a baby. The song is already emotional because it takes about everything that Alexander and his wife after the death of their first child. Listening to Kelly’s voice sing this song is something that makes the song amazing. Never in a million years would I have guessed this song would be one of my favorites.
Pretty Little Liars:
Let me explain this one a little. I actually have watched the most recent season. I know what is going on. I never watched it from the beginning though because I have been so confused about everything that has happened. We finally got Netflix at our house so I started to watch it and I am obsessed with it. I still have yet to read any of the books (I know its a shame) but I really want to but I read that the book and show is totally different. But I’m really excited to continue to watch the show!
