The Raging Ones had been on my ARC-TBR for quite some time before I finally went and picked it up. Having read the blurb, I was immediately intrigued by the thought of people knowing their death days, not to mention the very rare few who dodged theirs. I'm still not sure whether or not I'd want to know my own death day, to be honest. Would you?
When I participated in Liza's TBR Jar Readathon, the second book I pulled out of my jar was I Was Born For This. It had been on my TBR for quite a while since the author is coming to YALC and it was one of the books that caught my interest immediately. I finally got to read it - and in time for YALC at that!
It's hectic, okay?! Maybe not. Maybe yesterday was simply a lazy day and I totally forgot about posting my weekly reading update.. Yup, that's it. Sorry about that. But better late than never, right?
I'm not making any secret out of it anymore: Life is hectic and busy, so my blog is taking a huge step back right now. I literally have nothing scheduled for this month, or the next. Not one post, people! And I'm not even bothered by it - that's how busy I am right now. But, I felt like doing a TTT today, so that's what you're getting! Here are some of my favorite hyped books!
House-hunting, melting in the sun - and in the shadow -, going to London, more house-hunting, even more house-hunting, trying to catch up on my blog.. Yup, it's been quite the month for me! Of course, reading-wise it means I've had less time. I knew it up front, but you always keep hoping you'll have more time to read than you anticipated, right? Anyway! The last month I read this "little", was March. I read equally as many books but less pages. Oh well! Let's see what I've been up to, huh?!
It's so weird making a WWW-post on the first of August. Simply because it automatically feels like this should be a clean slate and it so isn't?! I'm in the middle of.. hey - only one book. Wow me!
My monthly challenge for August is one I didn't put together myself. We can see this as taking a break, or we can be truthful and say I already wanted to join too many other challenges to have my own one on top of that all! A couple of days ago, I posted my TBR for Book Roast's Magical Readathon to get my N.E.W.T.'s, but that is not all for August! I'm also participating in ARC August - hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat - and the BookTubeAThon - hosted by Ariel.
