Weekend Reads [17]

I am making my way through All The Light We Cannot See, and LOVING it. I haven’t the words to explain my love for this book, well not right now anyway. It is going to be a really busy week for me this week, but I’m so hoping to finish it because I feel I really need to.

I will be posting my month of reading, and having a whole new TBR up for this next month. Exciting times? I was looking for a new series to post, so if you guys can let me know what you would want or like reading about then please let me know.

Weekend Reads [16]

I really want to apologise for the fact I have been absent from this blog over the weekend. I have had an immensely busy week and weekend, and unfortunately the blog had to take a backseat. But this week I endeavour to be more pro-active and post with enthusiasm.

Onto the reading. I am steadily making my way through All The Light We Cannot See and I love it. Really enjoying the dual perspectives, and what they each bring to the story. The characters are well created and the world, oh my, is so well described, I know it’s our world but the attention to detail is wonderful.

It really is becoming my type of book. Love it.

Weekend Reads [14]

I am still ploughing through John Dies at the End I’m not enjoying it as much as I hoped I would. It’s got a really unique writing style and it is really well written, but I’m not sure whether it truly is my cup of tea. Just happens sometimes. Fingers crossed it will be finished soon.

This weekend however I put it down and started AND finished Voice of Innocence which I was sent by the author. I really enjoyed the story, and found myself unable to put it down. I did have a few problems with the writing style, but I still couldn’t put it down. I will be posting a 100% honest review of the book on Wednesday, with links to where you can buy it and what not!

Good weekend for reading, FINALLY.

My Month of Reading [2]

Another rubbish month for reading. I read a little more than last month but nothing substantial. I have had other priorities and other things that have taken up both my time and my interests. My writing has been on the forefront and I have made sure that I kept my motivation as high as I could.

I have read this month, Cinder, Vicious, and The Darkest Minds and I am making my way through John Dies at the End. I’m enjoying it I suppose but I have so many mixed feelings about the characters.

Once again there will be a TBR up later on this week. Definitely aiming high again this month. Fingers crossed as always!

Weekend Reads [13]

I have been super focused on my novel writing this weekend, and I have really begun to enjoy my writing again. My novel although staying the same in essence is going to go through some major changes, some of which are welcomed and others are a little hard to swallow.

So my reading hasn’t really been happening, and my prioritising hasn’t happened yet. I am not regretting it though, because I have had some really awesome writing ideas and motivation and we all know we can’t spite that because it might never come back!

Weekend Reads [12]

I am currently reading John Dies at the End I’m only a hundred pages in and I’m enjoying the tone. I haven’t been reading a lot this weekend, I have been babysitting and going out with my family and spending some time with them.

I think that I need to definitely prioritise my reading a little more. I am enjoying my reading but it just seems to be pushed aside for television, the internet and all sorts of distractions. I need to make time during the day to read, to make time to do something I enjoy and that makes me feel good.

Weekend Reads [10]

I have finished The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken and although the general consensus seems to be that this book and series is wonderful, but for me I had a few problems with it. I enjoyed the overall concept of it, but some of the parts felt rushed and it wasn’t the best.

I will have my usual book review up on Wednesday, and I have a lot to say about it. Would love to know if any of you guys have read it and not thought it was as wonderful as everyone else thought it was?

I have moved onto Vicious by V. E Schwab, and I am really enjoying it. I think that there is definitely going to be a deep love this book. Fingers crossed, and I hope I’m not jinxing it but it seems I’m in for a better reading month this month!

Weekend Reads [9]

I am back. I am a little annoyed that my internet problem has stopped my QOTD streak, but it’s been a good weekend for reading. I have almost finished reading The Summer Garden, I think it’s my reluctance in ending the entire series which is holding me back.

It will be the ending of an era and I’m not sure what I want to read after such an epic favourite. It’s going to take a lot to live up to this series, and I’m actually worried that the fact it’s so good will put me in a reading slump!

Drama right? Well I’m counting on it being finished by Wednesday and then who knows. I’ll be posting the books I really want to get to in February.
