My least favourite reads of 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

It’s that time again lads and ladies. It’s the end of another long year which means it’s time to talk all about my highly rated and most hated reads of the year.

As you can tell I’m starting off with my least favourite reads of the year, the baddest of the bunch. I figured it was best to get the negative energy out of the way first. These posts are like mini therapy sessions for me. Book therapy. Its a whole post dedicated to bitching on books I didn’t like and was deeply disappointed by. Lets begin:

The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Listen. Listen! It’s been months since I read this, back in July/August time, and I’m9780399576645_p0_v4_s550x406 still so pissed about this book. At the time I was obsessed with the TV show and I thought “hey, I’m going to love the book”. How wrong I was.

The pacing was off and all over the place, there’s a complete overuse of the words: “breasts” and “bossoms” and Quinten, the main character whose perspective we’re reading from, is a grade A arsehole which is the same in the show but at least in the show you grow to care about him. In the book he was an obtuse dickhead and I was waiting for him to die.

January Wrap Up.

It’s been a month and it’s been a good ‘un! 

Hello and happy Not January! We’re 1/12 of the way through the year already and I’ve already read 20% of my reading goal! My goal for this year was 60 books and in this past month I’ve read 12!

I was not expecting that but I’m very happy with myself and how this year has started off.

The first two books I completed this month were Lord of Shadows and also Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Claire. So yep, my year started off full of pain and heartbreak but god did I have a good time reading these and completing the trilogy. I absolutely flew through them. I did a whole review on The Dark Artifices trilogy and then I did a really long post with all my thoughts and feeling on Queen of Air and Darkness.
