When I first forayed into book blogging back in November of 2015, my original goal was to post a book review twice a month. Ha! That’s so funny to think of now, since in a rapidly accelerating cycle, the more I reviewed, the more and faster I read, which just led to more reviews, and so on. This past month I read and reviewed two books each week!
So, because I love lists and since I’ve seen many other book bloggers doing monthly recaps, I’ve decided to start doing so myself. Let’s just get into it, shall we?
Books I read and reviewed:
Faulty Bones combined card playing characters with supernatural and time travel elements in an interesting way.
The Idea of You made me feel all the feels.
A Long Legged Life is told in a style that won’t be for everyone, but it hit all the emotions for me.
A Gleam of Light had a fascinating premise but lacked tension.
A Conjuring of Light was entertaining and closed the Shades of Magic trilogy quite neatly.
Ink and Bone seemed like it was written just for me: a book about books with a splash of magic, that takes place in an alternate history that seems reasonably realistic.
Paper and Fire had something of a second book syndrome.
Ash and Quill turned out to be book three in this now five book series, and this felt like the turning point that was necessary to hook me in to continuing on.
On the stack for next month:
My May TBR is a combination of books I’ve wanted to read for a long time, some ARCs from NetGalley, and books I need to read because I either saw the movie or will be seeing it! (PS, Hollywood, can you please try to space your movie releases based on novels more consistently? Thanks!)
What are you reading or planning on reading next?
