Hello, friends, how was your month? Spring is here, and the weather is nice (though not yet nice enough to read outside). Work was interesting and fulfilling, for the most part, and I watched some really good tv shows and movies!
I have a new theme on bookstagram, by the way, and I am loving it. I’m more motivated to be creative and inspired, though I’m also trying to just be more chill, and not feel pressured to post.
As I mentioned before, I’m buying more sustainable this year, and 6 out of the 7 books I bought this month were used (two are gifts for my mother).
Also, unhauled a few more boos, leading to a total of 29 unhauled books in 2021!!
- Lore – Alexandra Bracken (read)
- The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater (read)
- Temeraire – Naomi Novik
- Notes on a Nervous Planet – Matt Haig
- Inappropriate by Vi Keeland (new)
I had a slower reading month. Physical and mental exhaustion, and less free time just didn’t let me read as much. Still, I enjoyed all the books I read this month. Some I loved, most were average fun (lots of 3 star reads), but only one or two weren’t great. (Also, I won’t be mentioning books I read for work or uni on the blog from now on, but they still might be on my goodreads).
I discovered a new favorite genre/subgenre(?) this month: dark fantasy adult romance. It has all the fun of adult romance with the excitement, unpredictable aspects of fantasy, and it can be kind of dark… (books by Laura Thalassa, and Black Sunshine by Karina Halle🖤).
I read 12 books this month. You can find reviews for all of these, either here in the blog or on my goodreads.
