I read a grand total of 4 books this month.
That’s a step up from last month, at least!
Thank goodness for America and it’s priorities, what with giving children a short leave from school solely to devour turkeys. That left me time to practice playing Christmas carols while simultaneously reading books.
It’s harder than it sounds, trust me.
(Don’t trust me; I’m kind of an awful person.)
Anywho, here’s the wrap-up bit of this post, dear reader.
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I am in love with this book and this series as a whole, as it’s so unnervingly good. Dear reader, it’s amazing. Annnnd I actually wrote a review (for once!)
- Winter by Marissa Meyer
YES, THIS BOOK. NEED I SAY MORE?
NO, I SHAN’T.
Buuut I wrote a review!
… I’ve been shockingly productive this month. Huh. Don’t expect me to keep this up, dear reader.
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
As the second book in the Raven Cycle, it was pretty much flawless.
This series is my one of the many bookish loves of my polyamorous self.
Darn, this month was a good decision-making month for me, at least book-wise.
- Confess by Colleen Hoover
I was not expecting to like this all that much, to be frank. Then I heard really great things about it. So I thought, why not?
I proceeded to check it out from my library and did not let it out of my hands for several hours.
Then I finished it, and I hurt. I hurt a lot.
I’m still hurting.
Confess was unreasonably good and stabbed me in the chest repeatedly with sharp knifes it miraculously obtained, but that’s okay!
I don’t know whether to sob or laugh. Either would be done hysterically, though.
How many books in last month’s TBR did I actually read, you ask?
Not. Even. One.
I had nine books, and I didn’t read one.
That’s okay though, dear reader, because I completely forgot to include Winter on that list last month. I’ll just go ahead and count that as a small personal victory.
I’m clearly a reliable person!
This month, I’d like to read:
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
- Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan
- Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
- City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (guess who showed up years upon years late to the Shadowhunters party?)
Any more books would make for far too many obligations, so I’ll leave it at that.
Let’s hope that I regain the knowledge of how to read books by this time next month.
