Hi guys, haven’t been much reading nor blogging for me lately due to lots of exams and essays now… I managed to read eight books, but at least they were all actually good and I finished an entire series (too soon… still not over it). Don’t expect much from until like the middle of June though. But I’ll try to post some things! Maybe you’ll just see a lot of ‘A Song & A Book’ posts :’)
The Books I’ve read this month;
The Books Of Beginning by John Stephens [x]
Like I said, still not over them. They’re like Narnia, but with pain. I was so exhausted because of a 10 pages essay I had written that I started crying when I thought of what happened to a certain character. But really recommend.
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan [x]
Great listening as well! I’m a huge fan of Riordan’s books and they will always be in my heart (did anyone else start to sing on the Phil Collins song?) because of how they saved me from a 4 years reading slump. Also I’m a huge mythology nerd.
Mort by Terry Pratchett
Finally started the Discworld series! I really enjoyed this book, and Death aaaw I just want him to be happy.
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
A fun and quick read! The concept of a 12 yeard old super-villain was all one needed to say for me to read it.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I was actually suprised by how captivated I was of this book, despite it being written in a way that I usually find, well, dull after a time.
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
This book. Omg. When I have time, I really want to write a review of this book. It’s just something everyone should read, but I’m also super mad now on why Ghibli changed the character’s personality. I read a hilariously accurate description of Sophie in the book on tumblr, saying something like
“Sophie in the movie: super sweet and wonderful and such a cinnamon roll
Sophie in the book: Sophie, but with a gun.”
And not to talk about Howl. Suffice to say, you need to read this book.
