Another month passes and I’m already behind on my Goodreads challenge – oh dear!
I’ve found it difficult to really get stuck into a book this month, so I have several on the go and haven’t really finished much!
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E Schwab – I’ve been on a fantasy binge for the past few months now, and I think I’m in need of something a bit different, so it’s taken a while for me to get into this one. But now I’m over 100 pages in and I’m starting to get into the swing of it a bit more now! I loved the first book, so I’m excited to really make progress with this one!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini – I picked this up a few days ago from the library as an emergency replacement book when I forgot to bring my book with me for a long journey. I’m absolutely loving it, it really is just stunning and devastating and I can’t wait to finish it – I’m flying through it!
Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff – still haven’t picked this back up… just not feeling it at the moment, it’s not grabbing my attention at all! Might just put it down and come back to it a bit later.
Books I’ve read this month:
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab – 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I really enjoyed this! Full review coming soon.
Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(.5) This book really surprised me, pleasantly. It was a super quick read, and I got through it in just a couple of days. I may have also cried a few times… full review coming soon!
Looking at that feeble 2 completed books is a bit disappointing, but actually if I think about it, I’m about 100 pages into each of the 3 other books I’ve got on the go, so not totally horrendous! Just been in a slight slump this month again, but I’m definitely getting back into it! I may also finish at least one of these books just before the month is out…
I’m going to be ambitious this month, and set myself an actual TBR list! I haven’t done this in a while, so I’m hoping it will encourage me to boost my reading rate and shove my Goodreads challenge along a bit. There’s also a lot of books that I’m really excited to get stuck into!
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas – My BF has actually caught up with me on this series now, so we’re going to read this one together; cute!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I’ve been left in charge of the teen book club at work next month, and this is the selected book, so that’s worked out as a nice excuse to finally get around to reading it!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Another book my BF is desperately waiting for me to read so he can borrow it… I’m just being kind. I also told myself I need to read this before I read Strange The Dreamer, which I’m so hyped to read!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – I’ve been desperate to read this since I got sent my proof copy, but still haven’t been able to get to it. This month. It will happen.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carol – This is my “if I have time” choice. Nice and short, and something that I really should have read many years ago but just didn’t!
Five books is probably slightly unrealistic seeing as I’ve already got 3 in progress, but a girl can dream! Also, better to shoot for the moon and land among the stars, some might say… 😌
