Whew. April was quite the slow reading month, and the way my May calendar is looking, it seems I won’t have much time for reading next month either! I did finish three books and two were ARCs, which always helps me feel accomplished. I am currently in in the middle of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which I started in mid-April and then set aside to read an ARC.
Hello, fellow readers! I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of Christopher Golden’s second book in the Ben Walker series, The Pandora Room. I read the first book, Ararat, earlier this year and enjoyed it but not as much as I expected to. I had already requested this ARC and decided to see if he improved some of the issues I had with the first book.
Hello, fellow readers! I feel like I have been in a reading slump since February. Nothing I read in March was holding my attention, and I was starting to burn out on reading every single day. I was in a fantasy mood after my last read but also kind of just wanted to read something that didn’t require much thought or attention. So I finally decided to listen to my first Christina Lauren book on Scribd.
Hello, fellow readers! Today I am reviewing an ARC of The Killer In Me by Olivia Kiernan. Thank you to Dutton from reaching out to me and giving me the opportunity to review this detective/crime novel. And check out that stunning cover! Absolutely gorgeous.
Hello, fellow readers! Today’s review is not for one of the newest, hottest books. I came across Ararat by Christopher Golden while scrolling through Audible a couple of weeks ago. The premise of the book sounded similar to The Anomaly by Michael Rutger, which was one of my favorite books of 2018.
What a mediocre reading month! March was a rough month. I expected to get so much reading done during Spring Break, but adult responsibilities and National Boards and family obligations dominated that week off from school. Nothing I read this month “wowed” me or captivated me and frankly I had a hard time even picking up a book to read everyday.
I am currently still reading The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and an ARC of The Killer In Me by Olivia Kiernan. I am very close to DNFing The Bear and the Nightingale though. There are way too many other fantasy books I want to be reading, plus ARCs I need to catch up on.
Hello, fellow readers! I have been failing at sticking to my posting schedule since spring break, and I do apologize for that! The last quarter of the school year always has me super stressed preparing for end of the year testing, so honestly, I haven’t gone shopping to have new favorite clothes or beauty products! I just kind of crash after school and on the weekends, which is really depressing me, but summer will be here soon!
Hello, fellow readers! I picked up this book at the library on a whim. I remember bookstagram raving about the twist ending of The Banker’s Wife last year, and the librarian told me everyone had told her it was great.
Hello, fellow readers! There has been a ton of hype of the Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows duology on bookstagram and booktube. I bought the Six of Crows duology from BookOutlet’s Black Friday sale, but I then I read reviews stating to read the Grisha Trilogy first. Then Netflix announced their adaptation of the Grisha Trilogy, so I knew I had to read it.
Welcome to another edition of Down the TBR Hole! This will be the fifth month that I have attempted to clean up my TBR list on Goodreads.
So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!
How it works:
- Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
