Hey bookworms! 2 posts in one night I know, but I was a little lazy during the day. Any who I participated in RYBSAT last week which ended on the 25th. I was a little sad to see it end I liked tweeting and being active with the other participants. Well I deviated from my TBR a bit and was only able to get 6 books read, but I still feel proud of that! So let’s get to the books I finished and the ones I am still working on finishing hopefully this week. As always the links to the goodreads are in the titles!
1. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Finished this audio book and it just reminded me of everything I loved about it when I read it the first time. I loved the audio book and it was a million stars for me! This will forever be a crucial part in what shaped the safe moments of my childhood. Listening to it reminded me I am still safe with my books.
2. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
I was loving this book laughing out loud at the humor and dynamics of it. Awwing and rooting for characters. I know people have mentioned it was a love triangle, but I didn’t feel like it was much of one. Then I got to the end of this book and it made me very angry! So this book got a 4 out 5 stars from me. I hope the other 2 fix my anger.
3. The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
I had the same issue with this as I did when I was younger. I know this story is a bit morbid, so the slow writing style fits. I just found myself dragging through it. I did enjoy the characters though so this book was a 3 out of 5 for me.
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by by Laini Taylor and narrated by Khristine Hvam
Honestly I loved this book I adored the narrator! Another issue of it being formatted in tracks, but I cannot wait to see what happens next! It was a 5 out of 5 stars for me! Love any book that involves rebirth =)
5. Generation Hope: The Future’s a Four-Lettered Word story by Kieron Gillen and illustrated by Salva Espin
I loved this comic and want to get my hands on the next volumes! I loved the main heroine and the artwork! I am really happy to have found an X-Men Comic I loved. 5 out of 5 stars!
6. Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler
I liked this book, but the main character got on my nerves a bit. Some of the cursing was a bit extreme and I know teens curse, but it was just ugh. I’m not a prude, but there are other ways to express annoyance. It was a 3 out of 5 stars for me. I am excited to read the next book: Under the Lights which I received an ARC copy from Netgalley. That one caught my eye more.
1. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I was trying to finish the reread of this on Sunday and Monday, but some fam stuff came up. I really am going to try and get this done by Saturday at the latest.
2. A Court of Thorn and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I started a few chapters of this Wednesday and it will be my first book by this author. This was my book pick from my personalized Uppercase Subscription box this month. I was so excited because I was on the fence for buying it myself, so I was so happy to receive it especially since I am on a retelling kick. I will let you guys no more after I read more of it!
So bookworms that is what I got done in this readathon! What did you guys get done? I plan to post my next readathon post on Sunday, so be on the lookout for that. Let me know what you thought of these books. I always love to talk especially about books! Happy reading!
