It’s the last day of August which means it’s time to see how I did during the month. Here is what my TBR looked like:
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I enjoyed reading this, but I don’t love it as much as many other people do. I think it may have been hyped too much for me.
- Armada by Ernest Cline
I actually liked this better than RPO and think I am fairly alone with that opinion. Doesn’t matter, I liked it and can’t wait for it to be turned into a movie, because that’s what it felt like while reading.
- The Martian by Andy Weir
I LOVE this book!!! It has become an insta-favourite of mine simply because it is so much more hilarious and smart than I thought it would be.
- The Magicians Trilogy by Lev Grossman (I read the first book, so I see it as an accomplishment)
The pacing of the first book was a little off and the characters a bit too miserable for my taste but I will still read the other two books.
Additionally to that, I also read:
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
This was positively addicting and I’ll make sure to check out more of Maas’ books soon.
If you want to know more about my thoughts on the books than just that 1-sentence-review, just click on the titles and you’ll be re-directed to my full reviews. If you click on the covers below, you’ll get to their respective Goodreads pages.
So, I’d say it was a fairly average month for reading, because I’ve definitely read more but also less books per month before. All in all I am happy with the outcome.
I’ve posted more than usually though by making sure to write on a daily basis (sometimes even more than one post per day) since August 11. I don’t know what inspired me to do that, but it definitely showed in a surge of followers and we are getting really close to a milestone soon! I want to take this chance to welcome everyone who’s fairly new to the blog and thank those who’ve stuck around! You are the ones that make this blogging experience even more fun!!!
I’ll try to keep this up in September ;)! Read you soon!
