February Wrap-Up

 

I decided not to do any TBR or any challenges (except the 80 books I want to read) for 2018, but just read what I feel like reading. I have many unread books and I'm trying to focus on those. But I still decided to have a "theme" for each month to help me choose what I was going to read.

 

My theme for February was "re-read a favourite" and for this I read:

 

 

Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi

 

 

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld  Pretties - Scott Westerfeld    

 

In addition to that, I read some other books because I felt like it!

 

One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus  Armada - Ernest Cline  Orpheum (Part One): A Dark Fantasy Romance - James D. Murphy  

 

3/5 stars                                 3/5 stars                    4/5 stars

 

 

I was really happy to start re-reading the Uglies series but I did not liked it as much as I did as a teenager. I really enjoyed it because of the nostalgia attached to it. Orpheum was actually my favourite book this month, I was not expecting that at all and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait for part 2.

 

I did not read that much in Februari and I did not watch a lot of TV series either. I really had a busy month focusing on my friends and family. I went to 3 concerts, went to Paris with my mom and sister, see some friends I had not seen in a while and actively started planning my wedding. I hope March will be less busy (it won't though).

 

I hope you had a lovely month!

 

Thanks for reading,

October into November

After not reading anything in July and August, then a small amount of books in September, October was definitely my friend. Between working on a children's reading list and the Dewey Readathon I was able get 10 books read! 

 

 

7 kids books, a short story collection, and two adult books! October also saw me meeting my Goodreads yearly challenge of 25 books. 

 

I've got a full month of reads for November and what doesn't get finished will get pushed to December as I've just got light Christmas reads scheduled. The last four books on the graphic is things coming out in November and/or things I'm waiting on the library to physically attain. 

 

I should be done with "Footprints in the Dew" in the next couple of days. Then I'm delving into "The Black Hand" and my next batch of kids books. Here's my list for November TBR:

August Wrap-Up

I just realized I totally forgot to post my August wrap-up. I came back from Spain yesterday, I had a really great week, it was really short and went way too fast but I had so much fun with my familly. Well, the only thing is, I did not spend a lot of time reading. 

 

In August, I read a total of 7 books (including two re-reads).

 

5 stars:

 

Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo  Queen of Shadows - Sarah J. Maas  Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) - Laini Taylor  

 

4 stars:

 

The Wrath and the Dawn - Renee Ahdieh  Heir of Fire - Sarah J. Maas   The Narrow Road to the Deep North - Richard Flanagan  Seven Ways We Lie - Riley Redgate  

 

 

Well, it seems like it was a good reading month!

 

 

Thanks for reading,

April Wrap Up + currently reading

I read six books during the month of April.

 

4 stars:

 

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer - Rick Riordan The Emerald City of Oz - L. Frank Baum The Midnight Star - Marie Lu 

 

 

3 stars:

 

The Time Machine - Greg Bear,H.G. Wells  The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige  Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices) - Cassandra Clare  

 

 

 

I'm also currently reading 3 books. I'm 20% into The Game - Terry Schott  which is really great so far. I'm also listening to Second Chance Summer on Audible, a book I've been meaning to read for ages and I'm enjoying it a lot! And I'm almost done with In the Dark, in The Woods which is really creepy and disturbing. I like it!

 

I've also watched a lot of series recently, which is why I read less this month. I finished Orange is the new black and am desperatly waiting for the next episodes. I also just started Riverdale, which is quite cool. And The 100 is back!!

 

What have you read this month? Anything good?

 

Thanks for reading,

Staying Together and Running Apart | An Ode to 2016

 

2016 was a year of contradictions. 


We said goodbye to many artists who made the world a better place, including but not limited to Prince, Carrie Fisher, George Michael, and Alan Rickman. 

We said hello to great movies and entertainment, like Stranger Things, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Moana. Also, Hamilton the Musical continued its streak into fame. 

We got an American Authors album that rocked my mind. 

We got a president-elect who is pushing the boundaries of our nation. 

The book blogging universe exploded several times from scandal, fraud, and dishonesty. Racism and poor representation burned through social media. The call for diverse books, authors, readers, and editors was met with strong disagreements. 

The book blogging universe exploded with support for one another. Events like DiversityDecBingo and Loveathon shared the blogger love. Countless bloggers campaigned for diversity and representation on every platform available. 

The highs and lows were reflected in every area of life, especially in my reading goals and accomplishments.
