Past Month’s Reading
I didn’t feel as slumpy this month as I have recently, which has been nice! I have realised that what felt like a months-long slump is in fact, I think, a result of the fact that I’ve in a new role at work since April, which is busier, and harder, and I just don’t have the same attention span I usually do.
I’m also caught up in my reviews! It’s been a while since that’s been the case.
Here’s what I’ve read and reviewed this month:
- Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel (sci-fi – 4 stars – review)
- Blackwing by Ed McDonald (fantasy – 3 stars – review)
- Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel (sci-fi – 4 stars – review)
- White Night by Ellie Marney (YA contemporary – 4.5 stars – review)
- Dear Martin by Nic Stone (YA contemporary – 4 stars – review)
- Nevermoor: the Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend (MG fantasy – 4 stars – review)
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber (YA fantasy – 3 stars – review)
- The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide by Eva Talmadge and Justin Taylor (non-fiction – 2 stars – not planning to review)
- My Whole Truth by Mischa Thrace (YA contemporary – 3 stars – review)
- Only Human by Sylvaini Neuvel (sci-fi – 3 stars – review forthcoming)
Physical book: Terra Nullius by Claire G. Coleman. I’m only a couple of chapters in on this and I’m not sure that it’s quite my thing. But I’ll keep going.
Ebook: All Fall Down, the second book in the Circus Hearts series by Ellie Marney. This book released yesterday and I have an ARC to read. I’m not enjoying it quite as much as the first book, but I think I like this love interest a bit more so it balances out.
Audio book: Nothing on the go at the moment.
Planning to read next:
I’m not quite sure but it will probably be another ARC. Unwritten by Tara Gilboy, which sounds like a fun middle-grade story, is looking likely.
With regards to audio books, I have got A Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haig on my computer. I just have to put it on my phone so I can listen to it when I’m driving.
What are you reading? 🙂
