Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All - Corinne Duyvis

Mention of Inhumans.   Yay!   I think I'm going to be rude and read through my group dinner which I never enjoy.   The woman who bitches at me and others is snapping at my friend because she's bitching about something then getting snotty about him commenting on her rants.

 

The Guardians should get me through this.

Month in Review: February
Guapa - Saleem Haddad,Andreas Diesel
The Semester of Our Discontent - Cynthia Kuhn
Lagoon - Nnedi Okorafor
On the Edge of Gone - Corinne Duyvis
Young Blood - Stephanie von Harrach,Sifiso Mzobe
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Der Susan-Effekt - Peter Urban-Halle,Peter Høeg

February brought grim winter weather and some solid novel reading, helped along by slow times at work. I was also ill for a week and didn't get much of anything done, so progress on my bigger reads stalled. Adorno and Le Guin are still stuck in my Currently Reading queue, there's some reviews I need to catch up on, but overall I'm quite happy with my first full month on BookLikes. 

 

 

4.5 star reads: 

 

Saleem Haddad: Guapa

Corinne Duyvis: On the Edge of Gone

 

4 star reads: 

 

Nnedi Okorafor: Lagoon

Lewis Carroll: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

 

2.5 star reads: 

 

Cynthia Kuhn: The Semester of Our Discontent

Sifiso Mzobe: Young Blood

Peter Høeg: Der Susan-Effekt

 

 

Looks like 2.5 stars are my go-to rating when I didn't quite enjoy a book but didn't hate it either. And I need to write more reviews of novels I do enjoy!

Reading progress update: I've read 240 out of 464 pages.
On the Edge of Gone - Corinne Duyvis

Halfway through this book, and it's amazing so far. It's more speculative fiction than sci-fi, and it's not so much about the apocalypse—a comet's about to crash into Earth—but about what happens after. A bit dark, but not grim, and written from the perspective of an autistic teenager determined to find her sister. 

 

Since I'm enjoying it so much, it'd be remiss not to point out that the ebook is still on sale worldwide for $1,29, or 0,96 € if that's your currency of choice.

My Library TBR is out of control... ergo my June TBR!
Leviathan Wakes - James S.A. Corey
Bloodline (Star Wars) - Claudia Gray
The Wild Girl - Kate Forsyth
The Tyrant's Law - Daniel Abraham
Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard
Prodigy - Marie Lu
Champion: A Legend Novel - Marie Lu
On the Edge of Gone - Corinne Duyvis
Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo

It's completely my fault. I read on a whim.

 

So I will be reading from a TBR in June. And I'm committed to finishing a book and just picking up the next book in the pile. I waste/spend a lot of time mulling over what will I read next, days even. Days I could be reading. So here goes nothing.

 

I have a feeling I will be reading Netgalley books all in July til they're completely caught up as well.  

 

Too many books, too little time! Oh the problems of bookworms...
