Wow my blogging and reading took a nosedive. After my last post I fell ill and was coughing, wheezing and had a low grade temp. I am still Covid free, thankfully, but I am also still coughing like no tomorrow. I’m attempting to read as I’m I’ll but it’s hard to focus when you’re coughing that hard! Let’s see. I think that I read a whopping 4 books. Yeesh. No, wait, 5 books. Kaikeyi was a reread. Here’s what I’ve read:
What I’ve Read:
My two favorite books were easily Kaikeyi and Alone Out Here which for those that don’t know is pitched as a Lord of the Flies but in space YA book. While the ending was a bit a cop out, I otherwise gave the book 5 stars as I did for Kaikeyi. Rise of the Mages was a dnf as I did NOT like the main guy character at all. He was in his twenties yet was constantly acting like a whiny bratty eight year old. Plus, the plot and world building didn’t seem new to me. Rafe was fine for writing and the characters were okay but I felt bored by most the book. Bright Ruined Things was also a dnf and just not for me at all.
I’m eager for these and I have here my stats:
Wake the Bones: 25%
Maker of Swans: 10%
What Souls Are Made Of: 30%
A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting: 10%
The Darkening: 10%.
Next up are a few ebooks. I might have a few physical books too, but I’m not sure what I’ll pick next. I’m just hoping to cram as much reading in as possible. Now that I’m mostly better from that bought of crap that came out of nowhere I’m trying to catch up. I’m in the middle of several books at once and I hope to get back to frequent updates. Feel free to suggest some books in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts on which books should be high on my priorities!
Until next time,
