April Wrap up

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m wrapping up the books I read in April. I didn’t actually think I’d read that much this past month but I actually managed to finish 5 and I did also dnf something.

So not all that bed in terms of quantity but the quality of what I read really could have been better.

April TBR

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I’m back again with a new month and a new TBR. I’m being ambitious this month but this first week of the month is filled with exams and my acne is not having fun right now so of course in the week easter holidays I plan on making up for lost time and reading a LOT.

The first book I plan on completing is my current read Goblet of Fire which I started re-reading last month and I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve got like 200 pages to go which I’m trying to finish inbetween studying.

Following my Harry Potter re-read I want to read my recent buy The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I bought this because I LOVE the tv show of which I am 3 seasons in. I’ve heard that some changes were made to the show but I’m really hoping I enjoy this series.

I then want to read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve said I wanted to read this forever but I’m hoping April will be the month! I really want to read Carry On, especially now with the sequel coming out soon but I refuse to even buy it until I read this.

And finally of my physical books I want to read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. This is a super cute comic and I’m hoping it takes some school stress away and help with the whole acne situation happening on my face.

I then seriously need to get to some ARCs this month and these are the three I think I’ll get to.

Again but Better by Christine Riccio, this is highly anticipated read for many people and I was super lucky to be accepted for an early digital copy. I’m nervous but excited for this.

The War Blog by Glen Sobey, all I know about this is that it’s got some feminist themes. I haven’t seen great reviews for this but I’m gonna hold onto hope that I enjoy this.

You Can Change the World by Margaret Rooke, this is a collection of 50 stories of badass people. I love the cover of this so much.

I don’t know whether these will be the ARCs I get to, I do have my eye on a few others but who knows?

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12I’m really hoping for a good reading month this April, I’m really looking forward to spending a week sleeping and reading.

February TBR

I know everyone says this, every single month but seriously, how is it February!

I had a great reading month in January and I’m hoping I can continue that on this month, even with my trip to England at the end of the month.

I actually have a TBR for February, something that never happens because I never stick to them but I’m being organised for the first time in my life and I have a list of four books I want to read:

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.

Worst Books of 2018

 


Facebook Cover #1

Hello! Buckle up people because today I am being a negative Nancy and talking about the worst books I read in 2018.

So I have five books for this list which to be honest isn’t that bad considering I read over 90 books this year. Reading bad books isn’t a bad thing, it makes you appreciate those truly amazing books more. Also I have a decent amount of pent up rage to let out on ranting about bad books. Here we go:

Away We Go by Emil Ostrovski
25679389

What was the point of this book you may ask? Well I have no idea.

This is about a hospital rehab centre where loads of kids live because there’s a virus going around killing all Americas adolescents and they get shipped off to these centres where they inevitably die.

Except the book doesn’t delve into this much. It focuses more on the life of a boy whose name I cannot remember as he screws everyone? Idk there’s a lot of sex in this book.

I ended up wanting to DNF this but it had been on my shelf for so long I just wanted to say I had defeated it and read it although the time I spent reading this is time I will never get back. Continue reading “Worst Books of 2018”
