  • September wrap up

    Hello everyone! Today we are going to wrap up my September reading. Ready? Here we go!

    Finished

    DNF

    Apparently The Hunt is the only green book I was able to get through lol I do have a review for Jack of Thorns coming. At least I plan on doing a review for it and another book I was reading for review. The Doctor’s Wife is a thriller and I don’t know if that is why I couldn’t get into it or what but I just had no motivation to pick it up. The Kiss Of Deception was the same way. Just did not want to pick it up and finish it. I m working my way out of a slump so I’m not forcing myself to keep reading books I am struggling with. Plus it felt so gooood being back in the Shadowhunter world!

    Hope everyone had a great reading month and here’s to even more great reading in October 💚

    June Wrap Up and Book Haul

    This is slightly late, but only by a couple days. I didn’t really read much in June since it was month two of my reading slump. However I did managed to read 3 novels, 3 graphic novels, and 1 ARC along with 2 DNFs. I also went a little wild and bought 15 books (three of them have been read). So let’s see what I did.

    Books completed:

    1. Fence vol 1 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
    2. Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee 4 stars
    3. The Backstagers vol 1 by James Tyrion IV 5 stars
    4. Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill DNF
    5. Fence vol 2 by C. S. Pacat 5 stars
    6. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz 4 stars
    7. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 5 stars
    8. Roseblood by A. G. Howard DNF
  • The Black Mage (ARC) by Daniel Barnes 4 stars
  • My two DNFs were both by authors I love which sucked but hey it happens. My favorite of the month was Illuminae, and I’m definitely continuing on.

    Now on to this haul I spoke of. There is a store in a city near me called 2nd and Charles, which is a used bookstore. They also sell new releases, but I mostly go for the used books since I’m just getting back into reading and want to read past popular books. Plus they are cheap. I went there twice in the month of June. I also bought my first Book Outlet purchase, which was a total of nine books. 

    The image won’t load for this one, but my first trip to 2nd and Charles resulted in me buying Illuminae and Carry On. I loved both of these.

  • These are from my second trip to 2nd and Charles. Aristotle and Dante has been read, currently reading Simon, and the other two will eventually be read lol
  • My Book Outlet order (minus Beautiful Creatures which I already owned and am currently reading). Dangerous to buy the whole series when I’m not even done reading the first book but hey I’m liking it a lot.
  • Well, that’s all everyone! I know July has barely started yet I already bought 3 books and I’m still waiting on my signed copies of two others to arrive. I will read all of these at some point lol have a great day everyone!
