November was a month where I focused on the goals I set at the start of the year. I wanted to read five specific books - did I succeed? And how does this month's haul look? Find out here!
Better late than never so.. Here's my October / #OWNtober wrap up! I read a decent amount of books, although some of them were quite disappointing, and ended up getting only sub box books and pre-orders, yay!
Back when I went to YALC in July, this is one of the ARC's I succeeded at picking up. I was so pumped to read it, but.. as usual, it disappeared down the TBR-mountain. That is, until people kept saying and mentioning how they were looking forward to Girls of Paper and Fire and I couldn't not pick it up immediately! So, here's my review - fingers crossed I do this novel justice with it.
September was a hard month to get through. Deadlines at work, a whole lot of stuff happening in my personal life.. Yet somehow.. I still managed to make this one of my best reading months this year! Not only looking at numbers, but most definitely looking at my own Sequel September-challenge. I read a ton of sequels and I'm so proud of myself!
When I first heard of this book, I was intrigued immediately. It sounded like something I would pick up but.. on the other hand, it also sounded like something I wouldn't pick up - if you get what I mean. The LGBTQIA+ part of this novel immediately spoke to me, but I wasn't really sure about the homophobic impression I got from the blurb. I'm glad I ended up requesting this ARC anyway because.. I don't regret reading The Lion Tamer Who Lost one bit!
You all know by now how hectic my life has been lately. If you've missed it - where have you been?! - you can just check out this post? I guess? Anyway! August was all about getting my N.E.W.T.'s and reading some ARC's, so that's exactly what I did reading-wise.
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?!
