Everybody and their mother has read this book at this point, and technically I’ve read it in the past, but I don’t really remember much about my time reading it, especially with the TV show and that movie that everyone hates. I have all of Cassandra Clare’s shadowhunter books, and so one of my reading goals for 2019 was to read all of them. I’m off to a good start!
I finished my first book of 2019 and man oh man, was it fantastic! I am so happy that I decided to go outside my comfort zone and try this book, since even though I love Brandon Sanderson and his writing, I’ve never actually read a sci-fi before. But I am happy to say that after reading this, I think I’ll try even more sci-fi!
Alright, I’m finally getting around to doing my best and worst of the year posts! These are honestly my favorite posts to read and it’s my first year actually being able to do them myself!
I finally did it. I read and loved a Laini Taylor book! I honestly never thought that I would love any of her works, not because of the plots or characters, but because I’m not the biggest fan of flowery writing and everything I’ve seen everywhere made me a little afraid to pick anything up.
I struggled with most of this book, but I kept pushing through it because everyone was always talking about how crazy and unexpected the ending is. Let me just say that everyone is correct when they say that you will NEVER guess this ending!
It’s the fifth day of the ABC book challenge for me, which means the letter this week is E! This may be a tough letter for me but hopefully I can find a few books for each category. If you are unaware, this challenge involves mentioning books that start with a certain letter that were memorable, and ones that are on your TBR. So let’s just get right into this week’s letter. And as always, each title is a link to the Goodreads page for each book.
I didn’t read nearly as many books this month as I usually do, but that may be due to the fact that we are getting closer to the end of the year which means I’m getting closer to my Goodreads goal! I definitely think that I’ll pass that goal, but I just feel like maybe I should slow down and enjoy the books a bit more than just trying to crank them out.
I had a completely different post planned today, but I just finished reading Kingdom of Ash yesterday and I just want to talk about it so badly that I decided to get my
review thoughts up today so I can chat with people about what has happened! I will be discussing things that happened in the book, so if you haven’t read KOA yet you may not want to read the rest of this post. But just know that I don’t think I will ever recover from this book.
