One more week of school, one more week of school, one more week of school! Well, it’s really two and a half days, but I’m counting that as three because I have to get up early for all of those three days, so they count. Anyway, the point of my rejoicing is that I hope my reading will pick up once summer officially starts. I haven’t been as bad as I was back in February or so, but I’m definitely not reading as much as I normally do. In between naps and school, I just don’t have enough time to read as much as I’d like.
Of course, since I haven’t posted one of these posts in a while, there are still plenty of books in here.
Modern Greek mythology, Bollywood movies, Muslim protagonists who are more than their religion and race, and girl power – lots of books, lots of nice diversity and stories. Now I just need more time to read them all…
Wow, I really haven’t posted one of these in a while – I feel like I read some of these books, like Not Now, Not Ever and Restore Me YEARS ago (OK, months ago, but in a school year, months can be a long time). There were some surprises, like Brazen and The Cruel Prince, as well as books I was pretty sure I’d love or love all over again, like How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You (reread) and the newest Lumberjanes graphic novel (continuing series).
And there are always those books that aren’t bad, but aren’t great – they’re nice to read for a while, but you aren’t sad to close them when they’re done.
After reading reviews, it was clear that I would fall in the “not a fan” category of this love/hate book – I didn’t care about the characters and didn’t find the writing magical. It was better to cut my losses and move on.
Let the Cat Royal rereading begin, and soon (by which I mean, this probably won’t happen for another month or two, but I’m optimistic).
I also bought some new books since I last posted one of these (but I think only one of them is showing up here – The Way You Make Me Feel).
I have a lot more books from the library, but they’re all “might reads,” and since so many books go back to the library anyway since I always have less time to read than I expect, I’m too lazy to resize the covers for this post. They’ll show up if I actually get around to reading them.
none at the moment!
The summer book extravaganza has begun!
A Question of Holmes (Brittany Cavallaro) // Two Can Keep a Secret (Karen M. McManus) // Red, White, and Royal Blue (Casey McQuiston) // Virtually Yours (Sarvenaz Tash)
I feel like I haven’t been adding a lot of books to my to-read shelf lately, so it’s nice to see that there were some there, especially books from authors I haven’t read – I’ve been so hesitant to add unread authors to my to-read list, instead just putting them on my maybe-read shelves.
WHY AREN’T THERE MORE COVERS YET?! It’s been at least two months since I last did one of these posts, and yet only two covers.
Also, Leigh Bardugo continues to have all the luck when it comes to covers.
