I thought I had been great at not buying books for a while but turns out that it was just a lie I told myself, and in just a few months, I still managed to accumilate 10 books. I thought I’d share the list of books I bought in book form, few of which I’ve read, some of which I’ve yet to pick up, and most of them being young adult because I just like it that much!
Three is the smallest number of books I’ve read in a month this year. I’ve read four books, and thought myself successful because one of those books was massive, but September was not a successful month. Somewhere in the middle I just stopped reading, and when I picked up a book in the beginning of this week, I didn’t understand why I had stopped! I finished two books this week and started a third one, so yes, most of this list happened during this week.
As promised, I kind of picked up a little heavier books this month but instead of reading the first two Stormlight Archive books by Brandon Sanderson, I read just the first one. Then I picked up lighter books, more tearful books and definitely a little less serious books at the end of the month. All in all, despite my plans to go all out and read only big books this month, I still went for the light reading and therefore managed to finish six books in total.
Behold, another successful reading month has passed and I’m now ready to pick up heavier reads in March because I’m ahead of schedule! Meaning, I’m on track to read 60 books in 2016 (oh yeah!). So, anyways, in the month of February, I finished seven books in total: one was a quick read, one a re-read, and one a little heavier read among the much lighter books I picked up this month.
Tags are such fun little things but I haven’t participated in a tag for more than a year, or even longer! And I definitely haven’t participated in a book tag, so when I saw this Chris Pratt book tag on Melisa’s blog WorldofBooks, I decided to do more tags. And what better way to start than with Chris Pratt!?
The first month of 2016 was successful – I’m on track, and it is a miracle considering everything I had going on. I worked 10 days straight at one point, during which, I started AND finished an 850 page book. I think reading is slowly becoming my superpower though I still feel like I’m such a slow reader.
Time to reveal my favorite books of 2015 which are pretty much all young adult reads, most belong to a series, and a few (read: two) are not fantasy driven. Based on this, I have already made a promise to myself for next year to read outside my comfort zone a little but for now, you’ll get this extremely fantastic list!
A while back I decided to change the course of this blog and now I’m finally sitting down to write about books. I’ve read quite a few good ones over the past few months and I wanted to quickly share some of my reads before the end of the year lists start taking over the blog. So, here are some of my recent reads.. all of which I have read during November (yes, I haven’t really slept this month, in case you were wondering):
