After starting the year off rather nicely and reading a total of four books last month, this month was quite different. I just haven’t really felt like picking up a book for most of the month and even when I did, I would usually read about a hundred pages (if that) and then put it back down. Which I am kind of sad about but I am also trying not to let it get to me and just look forward to this month and all the reading I will hopefully do!
The first book I read this month was Caraval by Stephanie Garber! After getting my copy four days early it weirdly still took me a few days to actually start reading the book. But then I ended up reading it in just two days and I really, really enjoyed the journey this book took me on! I did write a more in depth review for Caraval earlier this month, so you can read it for more thoughts! All I know is that I can’t belive Stephanie Garber is making me wait until next year for book two!
Up next (and last) I read A Darker Shade Of Magic by VE Schwab! I had talked about how I wanted to give this series a try on the blog before and I finally started and finished the first book and I truly loved it! The characters are awesome and I feel like I’m already way too attached to Prince Rhy. On an unrelated note: my brain kept wanting to read ‘Rhysand’ or ‘Rhys’ rather than Rhy for the most part. It was kind of hilarious and kind of annoying at the same time. I actually wrote a review for A Darker Shade Of Magic too if you’re interested in more!
That’s one thing I am really happy about this month: I managed to write and publish reviews for both of the books I read!
I am currently slowly making my way through A Gathering of Shadows and I really hope that I can get myself out of this weird slump that I seem to be in and start reading more again soon!
