What a surprise, I didn’t exactly stick to my TBR. But what can you do? As a chronic mood reader, that is what dictates my book choices and not really the TBR I set for myself. Anyway, here is what I read:
- Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin (5 stars)
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
To my defense, I started it! (I just didn’t get very far)
- Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel (4.5 stars)
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
I looked at it, I could still remember the movie, it was no fun to read, end of story.
What wasn’t on the list:
- All American Boys by Jason Reynolds/Brendan Kiely (5 stars)
- We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (5 stars)
What’s there to say? I just love when real life examples show how ridiculous some situations are, but how they are regarded as “normal” by society nonetheless. It is frustratingly short, because I would have read stories like that for hours more, but I still loved it.
- The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr (2.5 stars)
- Zodiac Starforce by Kevin Panetta/Paulina Ganucheau (5 stars)
Yeah, so sometimes I go and buy a couple comic books. This was so much fun to read! It had badass girls, an LGBT+ aspect, bright colours and a drawing style I really liked – what else could I possibly ask for?
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales Vol. I by Brian Michael Bendis/Sara Pichelli (4 stars)
Could the story have been better? Definitely! But I like Miles, I like the countless references and I definitely LOVE his crush on Ms Marvel. So, it was entertaining, isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?
Click on the titles to get redirected to the reviews and on the covers to get to the respective Goodreads pages! I am not reviewing all my books anymore, so if I haven’t posted a review on the blog, you can find a couple sentences below the title to hear my thoughts!
I am officially off work! I don’t know if that is a good thing or not, but for now I am embracing it and trying to figure out a couple of things, such as what to do next, where to go with the blog (fun changes to come!), developing Arcadia and making my travelling plans a little more concrete. I was happy to have been able to be more active on the blog and your blogs again. I was really craving that!
This month I hosted a giveaway! It’s a 1000 follower kind of thank you, but by now we are like two people away from reaching 1100 and it just blows my mind. There aren’t enough words to tell you how much I appreciate you all. Remember that today is the last day to enter(which you can do here) if you want that surprise package!!! I will choose the winners tomorrow and swiftly send them mails or DMs via Twitter, so keep an eye out for that!
Lastly, I also introduced a new feature #CurrentlyWatching! Which is really near and dear to my heart. I know that there have only been two posts so far, but you can bet on it being there every Friday from now on. I would really like to hear your thoughts on it, so, drop me a comment about that below!
