The past three months have been very good to me reading wise. I know I haven’t been pretty consistent here, but I am proud to announce that actually, I have read a ton of new books and even discovered some new favorite authors.
Trust me when I say that I am doing my very best to catch up on reviews and that I want to share with you as much insight as possible on as many books as possible, life just sometimes gets in the way.
Good news is that I managed to hit my reading goal for the year, but I hit a major reading slump in June and managed to finish only one book in that time. As I am writing this, I am making my way through The Illuminae Files.
What I am aiming at for the rest of the year is to reread and review as many of my favorite books as I physically can and share with you as much as possible.

I am very surprised that I DNF-d two books but it is what it is. I had to read The Sound and the Fury for class and I really tried getting both into the physical copy and the audiobook but it didn’t work out. I’ve read City of Bones probably 5-6 times and I wanted to annotate my physical copy but I couldn’t get into the book (I will definitely be rereading at some point). I really enjoyed Ruin and Rising, as well as The Six of Crows Duology and King of Scars. The illustrations in Fire and Blood are gorgeous and I am so excited for the second book and I cannot wait for Queen of Nothing to come out. (I am begging for an arc of Queen of Nothing, please!!! ).
The past three months have been good reading months, I hope you’ve found and read some cool books too. As always, my comments are open for recommendations.
PS. As I am writing this, it’s my second blog anniversary and I just want to say – thank you for sticking around and being so good to me. ♥
