Reading Wrap Up: May

Reading Wrap Up: May

My reading game this month has been a little up and down but I think I’m through the worst of it! I read 9 books overall and am currently trying to read about 100 pages a day. This is where I stand with my 2016 Reading Challenge of 100 books:

Reading Wrap Up: April

Reading Wrap Up: April

April has been a ridiculous mix of warm weather and hailstones, dreadful. I managed to read nine books this month and enjoyed all of them. The photo below only shows eight because I’d forgotten that I read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince this month and not March.

All the books I read were phenomenal and I gave them all 5/5 stars. Scarlet and Cress are books 2 and 3 of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and I absolutely love these sci-fi / fairytale retellings, I’ve just started the last one. Equal Rites and Wyrd Sisters are the first books in Terry Pratchett’s Witches Collection, I can’t wait to carry on with the series. The rest of the books I read were re-reads. I love re-reading books, it makes me happy and nostalgic. I listened to the Harry Potter’s on audiobook (read by Stephen Fry) and when I started doing this in January I kicked off with Prisoner of Azkaban. I realise it would have made far more sense to start with Philosopher’s Stone. Ah well …

What was your favourite read of this month?

I’ve just finished taking part in the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and I had an absolute blast! I devoted a full day to just reading and it was sheer bliss, it was great to know that loads of other people were doing the same thing!

I prepared my TBR in advance:

February Wrap Up

February Wrap Up

February was a pretty good reading month for me, I managed to read ten books and am half way through my eleventh (Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett).

 landlineThe first book I finished was Landline by Rainbow Rowell. This is an adult contemporary novel set around Christmas time and we follow Georgie McCool as she tries to save her marriage using a telephone that can call the past. I loved the magical realism in this novel and absolutely flew through it. You can always rely on Rainbow Rowell for an excellent read. I gave it 4/5 stars. Read more
