Retrospectively Reading (50)


Two posts two days in a row – I’m on a roll! And yeah, it’s not Sunday, but I posted my late Monthly Rewind yesterday and I wanted to get this up before this post got even more out-of-date (we’re talking books I read back in 2017, so many eons ago), so here we go, on a Monday. Hopefully the next one will be up sooner – once I finally start having time to read again.


SkulduggeryPleasant7 PrinceInDisguise TheAfterlifeOfHollyChase

I’m enjoying all of these books, and yet I haven’t picked up any of them for days. School and a need to sleep, not to mention watch TV, have kept me very busy indeed.

At least the year ended and began with some great books, especially a lot of graphic novels. I even managed to read multiple books from my own shelves – yay, me!

There were also some books that passed the time but are a bit forgetful in the long run.

I ended the year with a few DNFs, including a book that I really wanted to like and am sure plenty of people will like, even love (Girls Made of Snow and Glass – it was just too slow and fantasy-esque for someone like me, who really doesn’t read all that much in terms of fantasy and slow-moving books); then the year began with three books that I did read all the way through, but mainly by skimming. Not a fan of them, but I just had to see where they would go, which was the only reason I kept going.

Everyone takes a holiday during the winter holidays, huh?

This doesn’t match the first book in the series, but once I got over that, I actually like it. It’s an interesting cover that definitely gets my attention. I also just noticed that skull on the bee – extra points for that.


*whistles innocently* Someday I’ll take pictures ago…
