February 2020 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

So far in 2020, reading has been hard work, which is never fun! I’ve downgraded my GoodReads reading challenge from 75 to 50 because of my slow start. I’ve dropped off blog hops and am pretty much sticking to reviews and these monthly wrap-up posts. This is by no means a permanent change, but it’s all I have the energy for at the moment. I’ll come back to other things when I come back to them.

Sadly, that does mean I’m mostly missing out  on visiting your blogs as well. Just finding the time is a challenge. 

Having said that, when I sat down to write this post, I realised I did actually get through 8 books in February! It certainly didn’t feel like that. I finished two audio books that I’d been listening to for a very long time, so that felt pretty satisfying.  

I haven’t always had the energy to review them, so below some links will go to reviews here on the blog and others will go to GoodReads where I wrote some notes. And some don’t have a review at all yet. 

Past Month’s Reading:

  1. The Shadow Palace by Celine Jeanjean (The Viper and the Urchin #6) (steampunk – 3.5 stars – review)

  2. The Thornthwaite Inheritance by Gareth P. Jones (middle-grade – gothic/contemporary/mystery – 4 stars – GoodReads thoughts)
  3. Greehaelen by L. A. Webster (Chronicles of Algarth #1) (fantasy – 4 stars – review)
  4. Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray (the Diviners #3) (historical fantasy – 3 stars – GoodReads thoughts)
  5. Heroines: An Anthology of Short Fiction and Poetry edited by Sarah Nicholson and Caitlin White (speculative fiction anthology – 3 stars – not intending to review)
  6. The Thornthwaite Betrayal by Gareth P. Jones (middle-grade – gothic/contemporary/mystery – 5 stars – GoodReads thoughts
  7.  Circe by Madeleine Miller (historical fantasy/retelling – 4 stars – review forthcoming)

No, that’s not a mistake in my graphics – I did read The Thornthwaite Inheritance twice. It and its sequel were my favourites this month. 

Booktube:

wrote a script for a new BookTube video but never filmed it. Maybe in March? Or maybe I’m just going to give up this whole vlogging thing…

Favourite Bookish Photo:

I was so proud of my #6amAusWriters friends for their February releases! It took me a while to get good shot of Greenhaelen by Lyn Webster in among my neighbour’s flowers, but when gardens and nature are so central to the book, it absolutely had to be that way. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton. Apparently I’ve only been reading this for two weeks, which is slow, but not as slow as I thought! It’s about a school shooting and the subsequent operation to get the children out safely while there’s still a gunman in the building. It should be totally my cup of tea but something is holding me back. 

Ebook: That Night In Paris by Sandy Barker. Another member of the #6amAusWriters team! Everybody is publishing books this year! I need to get my butt into gear. I have only just started this but I think it will be light and fun and romantic, which is what I’m looking for. 

Audio book: The Lost Letter by Mimi Matthews. After enjoying Matthew’s Victorian Christmas romance, A Holiday by Gaslight, I decided to snap this one up when I saw it on Audible. 

Planning to read next:

I’ve had a sneaky look at There She Goes by Lynne Shelby and a romance set in “theatreland” sounds exactly my kind of thing. The opening chapter with an awkward audition was so relatable. So yes, this will be next. 

What are you reading? 🙂

 

January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

January was definitely a slow month. With bushfires and smoke haze and heat waves (oh my!), it was hard to really relax. I only read four books, and usually January is a month where I speed through seven or eight.

Past Month’s Reading:

  1. It Sounded Better In My Head by NIna Kenwood (YA contemporary – 3.5 stars – review)

  2. Don’t Read The Comments by Eric Smith (YA contemporary – 5 stars – review)
  3. Bitter Falls by Rachel Caine (thriller – 2.5 stars – review)
  4. The Beginning (Blackbirch #1) by K. M> Allan (YA urban fantasy – 4 stars – review

Booktube:

The same listlessness that has affected my reading has also affected my desire to make videos. I do have a script mostly written, though, talking about It Sounded Better In My Head and The Beginning.

Favourite Bookish Photo:

Don’t Read The Comments was definitely my favourite book this month, and I wanted to celebrate its release in any way I could.. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross. This book is beautiful but I’ve put it aside for a bit until I’m feeling a bit less reading slumpy. It’s so my kind of thing so I don’t want to force myself through it when I’m not in the mood. 

Ebook: The Shadow Palace by Celine Jeanjean. This is the sixth book in the Viper and the Urchin series… I’ve got to admit I’m not enjoying it quite as much as previous ones.

Audio book: Before The Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray. I’m working through this very slowly. This is a long book. I kind of feel like some of the plot threads aren’t entirely necessary. But at the same time, the ones that are pivotal are so good.

Planning to read next:

Honestly, at this point I have absolutely no idea. I’ll have to see what takes my fancy.

Combined November-December 2019 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

In the last two months of 2019, I took an unintended blogging hiatus, from both this blog and my writing blog. I was around here a little bit, but I was so tired trying to get everything wrapped up before the end of the year that I totally fell of the  bandwagon with blog hops and readathons.

Australia is rather on fire, especially on the east coast, at the moment and there are a number of emergencies unfolding in areas surrounding where I live. Fortunately we’re safe for the moment, apart from terrible smoke haze blowing in every night and making it hard to breathe.

It’s hard to stay positive when so many lives (human and otherwise) are under threat and it seems like governments don’t want to do anything to bolster resources, but I’m finding good things to focus on. That includes more books and hanging out in the book blogging community, and I plan to do more of that going into 2020.

So without further ado, read and reviewed in Novemer and December 2019:

November Reading:

    1. Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin (YA fantasy – 4 stars – review) (read October, reviewed November)
    2. The Antics of Evangeline by Madeleine D’Este (YA steampunk – 4 stars – review) (read October, reviewed November)
    3. A Christmas Wish and a Strawberry Kiss and the Cozy Kettle by Liz Eeles (contemporary romance – 2.5 stars – review)
    4. When We Were Very Young by A. A. Milne (children’s/poetry – 5 stars – no review)
    5. Portable Curiosities by Julie Koh (short stories/satire – 4 stars – review)
    6. The Hate Race by Maxine Beneba Clarke (memoir – 4 stars – review)
    7. The Flower and the Serpent by Madeleine D’Este (YA horror – 3 stars – review)

December reading:


    1. Curses and Candy Canes by multiple authors (anthology/fantasy – 3 stars – not intending to review)
    2. A Holiday by Gaslight by Mimi Matthews (historical romance – 4 stars – review)
    3. Welcome to Country by Marcia Langton (non fiction – unrated – review)
    4. Beneath the Surface by Rebecca Langham (queer sci-fi – 3 stars – review)

A couple of slow months, as I said, but there you have it.

Booktube:

I have a Booktube account where I talk about Australian books. I’m trying to get more consistent with it, and while I didn’t post  much during my off-period, I did post a NaNoWriMo update. But then I dropped out of NaNo, so that was the end of that. There’ll be more this year, though!

Favourite Bookish Photo:

I was so pleased when all five of the Talon Saga books were on the shelf at my library at the same time! Unfortunately, I ended up not enjoying the first book so I didn’t read any further, but they do make a very attractive set. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray. I read her Firebird trilogy in 2019 and snapped the three books in this Constellations trilogy up when I saw them at the library. I haven’t been completely grabbed by this yet, but I want to see where it goes.

Ebook: None on the go at the moment. But I’m getting a new Kindle soon! Probably.

Audio book: Before The Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray. I actually started reading the book because I felt the audio book would be too long, but I missed all of January LaVoy’s amazing voices way too much! I’ll be seeing this series through to the end on audio, even if it takes me forever!

Planning to read next:

I really want to read It Sounded Better In My Head by Nina Kenwood. It sounds delightful! I actually sneakily read the first chapter when I first received this in a pre-Christmas book swap, but I made myself wait until I wasn’t already in the middle of a bunch of other books.

What are you reading? 🙂

October 2019 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

At the start of October, I was speeding through a book every two days. I was hoping to keep that momentum up in the second half of the month, but alas, it didn’t happen. Still, I read a decent amount of books. I also participated in my first readathon, and I have already signed up for another one because I had so much fun!

Having said that, I’ve got other challenges to finish before the end of the year, plus a bunch of library books, so we’ll see how I actually go. Oh, and did I mention I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo at the same time?

Past Month’s Reading:

    1. Monuments by Will Kostakis (YA urban fantasy – 4 stars – review) (read September, reviewed October)
    2. Evangeline and the Spiritualist by Madelein D’Este (YA steampunk – 4 stars – review forthcoming)
    3. The Dead of Winter by Chris Priestley (MG horror – 2.5 stars – review)
    4. Songbird by Ingrid Laguna (MG contemporary – 5 stars – review)
    5. Vampire Island by Adele Griffin (MG urban fantasy – unrated – not intending to review)
    6. The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg (YA sci-fi/thriller – 5 stars – review)
    7. Serpent and Dove by Shelbie Mahurin (YA fantasy – 4 stars – review forthcoming)
    8. The White Hornet by Celine Jeanjean (steampunk fantasy – 5 stars – review)
    9. Evangeline and the Mysterious LIghts (YA steampunk – 3 stars – review forthcoming)

Booktube:

I have a Booktube account where I talk about Australian books. I didn’t post for about six months but I said October would be the month when I got back into it and I meant it! I got two videos posted.

You can check out the channel whole here

Favourite Bookish Photo:

I always love the covers for Celine Jeanjean’s books and this one for the White Hornet is no different! You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Too Flash by Melissa Lucashenko. This is a YA contemporary that I’m reading as part of my Australian Women Writers Challenge. I’m not very far in, yet, but it’s got a really authentic voice that I love.

Ebook: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I have to be honest, I wasn’t intending to read this series but a close friend recommended it so I’m giving it a go. So far, so good though it’s kind of on hold until I get some library books read.

Audio book: Circe by Madeline Miller. Audible kept recommending this to me so I selected it when Iw as at a loss about what to listen to. It’s not something I would normally read but I do enjoy my witches in fiction and Circe was kind of the original.

Planning to read next:

In my September wrap-up I said I was listening to the audio book of Illumination by Karen Brooks. This was way too long and I knew I wouldn’t get through it before it was due back, so I have the hard copy instead and that is next up. It is quite a hefty tome, though! Lugging it around is going to be annoying.

September 2019 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

After a slow start, I feel like I found my readin groove again in September. I got through 9 titles, and even though some of them were only short, it all counts!

Some of the books I read this month are not ones I’m intending to review on this blog, but where I’ve left more than a sentence on GoodReads, I’ve linked there instead.

Past Month’s Reading:

    1. Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds: The Musical Drama (audio drama – 5 stars – no formal review – GoodReads thoughts)
    2. Evangeline and the Alchemist by Madeleine D’Este (steampunk fantasy – 4 stars – review forthcoming)
    3. Evangeline and the Bunyip by Madeleine D’Este (steampunk fantasy – 3 stars – review forthcoming)
    4. Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (historical fantasy – 5 stars – review)
    5. Suicide Club by Rachel Heng (SF dystopia – 3.5 stars – review)
    6. The Modern Girl’s Guide to Safe Sex by Kaz Cooke (non-fiction/humour – 3 stars – no formal review – GoodReads thoughts)
    7. Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Powerby Sady Doyle (feminist/non-fiction – 3.5 stars – not intending to review)
    8. Doctor Who: Scratchman by Tom Baker and James Goss (sci-fi – 3 stars – no formal review – GoodReads thoughts)
    9. Monuments by Will Kostakis (YA urban fantasy – 4 stars – review forthcoming)

Booktube:

Moving house meant I didn’t get anything posted to Booktube this month. I feel like I’ve been saying this several months in a row, but really, October will be the month where I get back into it!

You can check out the channel here

Favourite Bookish Photo:

Gods and Jade and Shadow was a beautiful Mexican historical fantasy, and the cover was also gorgeous. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: No physical book on the go at the moment.

Ebook: Evangeline and the Spiritualist by Madeleine D’Este. These novellas are very short, which is why I’m waiting to review them all at once, rather than one at a time. But they are sweet and entertaining.

Audio book: I have started Illumination by Karen Brooks, the third book in the Curse of the Bond Riders trilogy. I read the first two a couple of years ago and I’m not sure why I didn’t get around to this one. It’s 28 hours long! So will probably take me a little bit of time to get through. Fortunately, there’s a summary of the first two books at the start so I was able to refresh my memory.

Planning to read next:

I am kicking off the spooky season with a Christmas-y spooky read, The Dead of Winter by Chris Priestley. I get scared so easily but it’s a kids book so how bad can it be, right? (Famous last words, I know!). I am participating in the Hocus Pocus Readathon, my first ever! Check out my TBR here.

Combined July and August 2019 Reading Wrap-up

"monthly reading wrap-up" banner

I was travelling at the end of July and I’d read so few books during July it hardly seemed like they warranted their own post anyway. In August, I found my groove again and started making up for it. I’m still behind on my GoodReads 2019 challenge but I’m not too bothered about that. 

Past Month’s Reading:

July:

Covers of books I read in July

It wasn’t until I started writing this post that I realised I had read three books by authors called Madeleine in a row. Ha. 

Booktube:

I have a BookTube Channel where I talk about Australian books. For the last few months, this has been sadly abandoned, but I have a script ready to go to get back into it in September. 

You can check out the channel here

the novel The Women in Black

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: No physical book at the moment.

Ebook: I am reading Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. This has a folky, fairytale air to it that I am enjoying.

Audio book: I have started The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee but I’ve listened to less than an hour at time of writing. I’m not sure if Monty’s going to grow on me at his point. 

Planning to read next:

I have You Must Be Layla By Yassmin Abdel-Magied from the library. It has mixed reviews but will the second book by an Australian WOC for my Australian Women Writers Challenge (and the diversity challenge I set myself within the main one). 

What are you reading? 🙂

June 2019 Reading Wrap-up

This is a bit of a sparse post compared to  previous monthly wrap-ups. I was doing a musical, then I got sick, and work has been busy. So not only did I not get much reading done, but I also didn’t do much of anything else (Youtube, #bookstagram…)

Past Month’s Reading:

A bit of a slow reading month this month for a  variety of reasons, most of which can be summed up under the umbrella of “life got in the way”. Still, five books is better than no books.

    1. The Diviners by Libba Bray (YA historical fantasy/horror – 4 stars – review)
    2. The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder (playscript/comedy – unrated – not intending to review)
    3. Get the Girl Out by Lucy Bloom (memoir – 4 stars – review)
    4. A Summer Escape and Strawberry Cake at the Cosy Kettle (romance – 3.5 stars – review)
    5. Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla (YA contemporary – 2.5 stars – review forthcoming)

 

Booktube:

I have a BookTube Channel where I talk about Australian books. I only got one video posted this month, though I intend to get a bit more on top of it in the coming weeks. Sadly, I didn’t post a single video this month! I really need to get back to that! (I do have two in progress, so you can expect better things come July!)

Favourite Bookish Photo:

Erm… and again, nothing to see here! I posted one photo to Insta all month and it wasn’t bookish.

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: I am part of the way through The Women In Black by Madeleine St John. This book is considered a bit of a modern classic in Australia, and I am enjoying it so far.

Ebook: I am reading an ARC of Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew, a YA novel set around the  Beslan School Siege in 2004. I have a feeling this one is going to be herat-rending.

Audio book: I am well on the way to finishing Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray, the second in the Diviners series.

Planning to read next:

I’m honestly not sure! Mother Tongue is the last of my ARCs that are due before I got to America in a couple of weeks. Guess I’ll see where the mood takes me!

May 2019 Reading Wrap-up

Does anyone else feel like May dragged on forever or was that just me? With everything I had going on, you’d think it would have sped past, but I feel like that actually made it slower.

Past Month’s Reading:

That being said, I managed another 8 books this month! At this rate, I am slightly behind my goal of 100 books in 2019, but I will come pretty darn close!

    1. P is for Pearl by Eliza Henry Jones (YA contemporary – 4 stars – review) (read April, reviewed May)
    2. The Things That Will Not Stand by Michael Gerard Bauer (YA contemporary – 3.5 stars – review)

    4. Enchantee by Gita Trelease (YA historical fantasy – 3 stars – review)
    5. His Name Was Walter by Emily Rodda (YA fantasy – 4 stars – review)
    6. Emily the Strange: The Lost Days by Rob Reger (YA fantasy – 3 stars – not planning to review)
    7. The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone by Jaclyn Moriarty (MG fantasy – 3 stars – review)
    8. The Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate (YA dystopia/fantasy – 4 stars – review)
    9. The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale (magical realism – 4 stars – review forthcoming)

Hey look, I used a prop! This was a beautiful, bittersweet book. I’ve read a few dud historical fantasies this year so I was really glad to find one that worked for me.

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: I have just started Lenny’s Book of Everything by Karen Foxlee. I am prepared to have a lot of feels over this one.

Ebook: Nothing at the moment, though I have a few upcoming ARCs that I’ll be starting soon. 

Audio book: I am about a third of the way through The Diviners by Libba Bray, which involves the paranormal and an string of occult/ritual murders, and it’s set in 1920s New York City. It’s great!

Planning to read next:

I’m going to pick up Get The Girls Out by Lucy Bloom. I’ve been to one of Lucy Bloom’s talks and she is very inspiring, so I’m looking forward to reading her memoir.

What are you reading? 🙂

April 2019 Reading Wrap-up

Past Month’s Reading:

Another decent reading month with a total of 8 books read!

    1. Hive by A. J. Betts (YA dystopia – 3 stars – review) (read March, reviewed April)

Favourite Bookish Photo:

So this is more about the book I’m writing than any that I read during the month, but I didn’t do any book posts! I’m really pleased with where my Camp NaNoWriMo project took me, though. The MS is now at 60000 words and I love the direction it’s taking!

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Nothing at the moment.

Ebook: I am reading an ARC of Lucid by Kristy Fairlamb, which came out last week. I usually don’t pick up ARCs after their release date but I follow Kristy on Twitter and the book was Read Now on NetGalley and here we are. 

Audio book: I am about a third of the way through Enchantée by Gita Trelease. I don’t mind it but I think it’s going to take me a while to get through. 

Planning to read next:

I’m going to pick up The Things That Will Not Stand by Michael Gerard Bauer and get back into my Children’s Book Council of Australia 2019 Notables challenge. This sounds like an interesting one and it’s quite short, so I hope I will get through it quite quickly.

March 2019 Reading Wrap-up

Past Month’s Reading:

Nine books this month! It’s a bit of a record. And given that I was in a bit of a rough place for a couple of weeks, I’m actually surprised the total is that high. 

This month I began a challenge to read as many books on the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s 2019 Notables list, and I read four of them this month. 

    1. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor (YA fantasy – 4 stars – review) (read February, reviewed March)
    2. Famous Last Words by Katie Alender (YA paranormal/thriller – 4 stars – review) (read February, reviewed March)
    3. An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson (YA fantasy – 3.5 stars – review)
    4. Bird Box by Josh Malerman (horror – 2.5 stars – review
    5. A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston (YA fantasy – 3.5 stars – did not review)

These are the first four books I read for the CBCA2019 Challenge. You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Amelia Westlake by Erin Gough. I have only just started this YA contemporary but I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one.

Ebook: Nothing at the moment.

Audio book: I only just finished A Thousand Pieces of You this morning so I haven’t had a chance to start anything else.

Planning to read next:

I’m planning to start the ARC of Wolfhunter River by Rachel Caine. I loved the first two books in the Stillhouse Lake series so I can only hope that this one is just as good.

I’m also intending to read Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray, because I definitely want to continue the Firebird series.
