Books Read:

A Thousand Boy Kisses || Winter || A Court of Mist and Fury || We Are the Ants || Exit, Pursued by a Bear || Every Heart a Doorway

I read 6 books and 0 audio-books this month. I am still trying to finish listening to ‘The Dream Thieves’. I had such a bad reading month because the start of term is always ridiculously busy. I have also been doing tons of socialising and by the time I get home I am usually too tired to pick up a book.


Favourite Read:

A Court of Mist and Fury

This needs no explanation.

I went into a deep book depression after finishing this. I adored every character, quote and interaction. If it were possible I would have already run away to Rhysand and the Night Court.

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.” Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

We Are the Ants 

I really wanted to enjoy this one. I love books that deal with real issues and depression is something that will always hit close to home…but don’t tell me this is a book about aliens when its not.

June TBR:

I failed at my May TBR shelf. I set myself 4 book and only read one of them. I get distracted by new shiny books. My only aim is to start a new book series.


Life in General:

  • Reading: Summer Days and Summer Nights – I am excited for a light fluffy read.
  • Eating: Butter Chicken – Two nights in a row…so naughty but its delicious. 
  • Drinking: Redbull – I am supposed to have quit drinking these but I have been craving one lately.
  • Watching: Asia’s Next Top Model – I am in bed with my flatmate and BF and we binging on the latest season
  • Listening To: Kings of Simmer – Ayokay
  • Working On: My fitness! – The past two weeks I have been trying exercise every day. I am trying to train myself to rain without stopping. 
  • Loving: The weather here in NZ. It has rained every single day for the last fornight. I am talking about torrential rain, thunder and lightning. This weather makes me happy.

March Wrap Up

1111

Books read:

  • Isla and the Happily Ever After
  • Nowhere But Here
  • Six of Crows (Audiobook)
  • Room (Audiobook)
  • Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride

 

I read 3 E-books and listened to two audio-books this month. I am getting a lot more into Audio-books and have been adding to my wishlist quite regularly at the moment. I didn’t read as much as a normally do this month. It is the first term of the school year and I have been insanely busy. I am really looking forward to April to try and knock some books of my TBR.


Favourite Read:

I absolutely loved ‘Six of Crows’.

Who doesn’t want to read a book about an impossible heist, set in the most spectacular world told from six different perspectives? Did I mention the six main characters are bunch of criminals and misfits? Did I also mention there is a sequel coming later this year?

Do yourself a favour and go and get this book today. 


“The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.”

I didn’t enjoy ‘Nowhere But Here’.

This book was far too predictable. The characters seemed to have no connection other than an initial attraction that made me want to continue to read. There was barely any banter and I knew what was going to happen scene for scene from about 10% into the book. Boring!


“I loved you before you existed, and I’ll love you after I’m gone.”


Currently Reading:

I am currently reading ‘Morning Star’ & ‘The Wall of Winnipeg and Me’. I am listening to ‘The Infinite Sea’ on Audible.
