A Quarterly Wrap-Up (April – June 2019)

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.

Books read in April – June 2019

  1. Siege and Storm – Leigh Bardugo (March 30 – April 6)
  2. Ruin and Rising – Leigh Bardugo (April 6 – April 10)
  3. Beloved – Toni Morrison /audiobook/ (April 10- April 14)
  4. Red Scrolls of Magic – Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu (April 10 – April 23)
  5. Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston (December 18 /2018/ – May 4)
  6. Fire and Blood – George R.R. Martin (April 24 – May 5)
  7. The Sound and the Fury – William Faulkner /DNF/ (April 7 – May 12)
  8. Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo (May 6 – May 23)
  9. Crooked Kingdom – Leigh Bardugo (May 23 – May 31)
  10. City of Bones – Cassandra Clare /tried doing a buddy read and ended up DNF-ing, will probably reread at some point/
  11. King of Scars – Leigh Bardugo (May 31 – June 5)
  12. Ghosts of the Shadow Market – Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson, Sarah Rees Brennan, Robin Wasserman (June 5 – June 8)
  13. The Cruel Prince – Holly Black (June 5 – June 9)
  14. The Wicked King – Holly Black (June 9 – June 13)
  15. Aurora Rising – Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff (June 13 – July 11)

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. ♥

  1. Happy second blog anniversary!
    I’ve definitly added a few more books to my to read pile from this list. I’m really trying to get back into reading, even though I’m finding it difficult to find time to sit down and enjoy a good book.
