I don't know if I'm going to attempt to do a full Cannonball in 2017. I'm terrible at writing reviews. I may go for a quarter Cannonball. If I go further than that, it's only a bonus. But I am kind of interested in PopSugar's 2017 Reading Challenge list:

So I'm taking suggestions and recommendations! A few of my own:
4. Any of the Neil Gaiman audiobooks. "Anansi Boys" is read by Lenny Henry and is amazing. The ones read by Neil Gaiman are magical.
48. "Winter" by Marissa Meyer (Although it's the 4th book in the Lunar Chronicles so you might wan to read them all. If you haven't read any of them...)
39. "Cinder" by Marissa Meyer - first book in the Lunar Chronicles.
41. Any of these books count because you love me.
2016 has been a bit of a clusterfluff hasn't it.
So far this year the partner-in-crime has had several serious bouts of illness. My car has been in the shop a few times. One of our cats has had some health issues. Everything is disorganized.
Now that it's December I'm starting to get things organized for 2017. Let's do better next year, right? I did start seeing a therapist this year about my out-of-control stress levels and it's starting to help. Getting things organized may also help. Should help. In theory.
I'm going to make another attempt at Bullet Journaling. It really helped me at work and maybe it'll be good for me at home to keep things from getting out of control.
As far as other kinds of journaling...
My reading journal is on Goodreads. (Dear CannonBallRead6 - I have been reading! Just not reviewing! (that totally doesn't count, I know.))
My movie watching journal is on Letterboxd (and I saw almost no movies this year. igh.)
I'm going to try to be better about updating this "blog". More stories about my critters. Things that might invite feedback (because hi? I hope you're out there reading this and you're someone other than my mom?) and a little interaction with people.
