This past week was an exciting week for me. I was able to finish 4 books! One of which I started and finished all in the same week. I've never accomplished that before. The others I had read over the course of the month. I haven't been much of a reader in my life and am slowly getting into it, so this month/week was a huge accomplishment for me so I'm happy to be able to share my accomplishment here. The books I finished are:

City of Stairs, by Robert J Bennett

A Reaper at the Gates, by Sabaa Tahir

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, by Amy Schumer

And the book i started and finished this week:

Guards! Guards!, by Terry Pratchett

All of these were excellent and have made me want to keep reading more. The sad story is that I really wanted to continue reading through the discworld series via audiobook. Its such a great story for listening to during my commute to work, but my library doesn't have them :( Thankfully they have the ebook version so I'll still be able to continue the series.

I'm half way through a few other books so I need to finish them before starting new ones, but I am going to start listening to A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas as my commute audiobook.

A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas. I decided to give this book a go, because I liked the idea of a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. And I did enjoy the plot and world, but I really didn't like the main character. I can say the ending is pretty closed, so you don't get left on a massive cliffhanger. I won't be continuing the series - 2.25/5

Down Among the Sticks and Bones, by Seanan McGuire. I do quite enjoy this series, Wayward Children. I like the concept and the characters. But the books are too short - I've found both felt too rushed. So as much as I liked the books, I'm not sure McGuire is very good at writing plot, which may be why it feels so rushed. Overall, enjoyable, but room for improvement - 4/5

Starting A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess. The first time I picked this book up was when I was about 15; it had an interesting title, I'd heard it was a classic, and it only had a glass of milk on the front. I did not know anything about it, and after attempting to read the first few pages, I gave up figuring I must be too dumb to understand it and wondered if I was more illiterate than I thought (not realising that it had non-english words). A friend recently read it, so I decided to brave it again, and I tell you what, age and (literary) experience makes a big difference. So far, so good. edit: fantastic book 5/5.

Finished Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire-

I loved this. I’m certain she’s a new favorite author.


Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman I’m close to finishing this one but I’m not sure if I’m ready to let go yet so I’ve been savoring it.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas I’m curious to see if I like this more than ToG.

Abandoned Everless by Sara Holand. I usually enjoy lighthearted fantasy YA, but good god is this book poorly written. I've seen a lot of praise for this book and so I gave it a fair few tries, but it's just so cringey - every beat in the book is expected, although many of the motivations of pretty much every character just don't make sense. I got about 4/5ths in and regret it.

Started A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. Given that Everless was so bad, my hopes haven't been high for this one (also fantasy YA). So far, this is much better! At the very least, the writing doesn't inspire me to gouge my own eyes out - so a vast improvement. I may have hit my limit on YA for the next while though, and have The Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K LeGuin queued for next week.

Finished Warbreaker, by Brandon Sanderson. It was excellent. The world is so interesting and the characters are developed incredibly well. I haven't read a book this well written in a long time. It brings up a lot of interesting philosophical topics about religion and how people view people who are different from them. The story had a good mix of humor, action and intrigue.

I also finished A court of thorns and roses, by Sarah J Mass. This wasn't nearly as good as warbreaker, but the story was fun.

I'm working on finishing: Castle in the Air, by Diana Wynne Jones and The Magician King, by Lev Grossman

I finished The Northern Lights by Philip Pullman and Red Rising by Pierce Brown


• I don't know why I didn't read His Dark Materials as a kid. I think I would have enjoyed it as much as I loved Harry Potter. Nonetheless I still loved it as an adult, although to be honest, I think some of the themes are way too dark for a kid's (?) book. Is it really a children's series???

• Red Rising was a let down for me. I don't know if it's because my expectations were too high because it is so hyped here or if it's because of the plot or if it's because of the author's writing style. Tbh, it did not engage me at all, and I only found it exciting towards the end. Like, at page 300 of 382. But I'm still happy I read it. Though I probably would not pick up the second book.

I've started A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas


Witches: What Women do Together by Sam George-Allen.

A Court Of Thorns And Roses, by Sarah J Mass I've been wanting to read this book for a few years now but other books kept grabbing my attention. I'm glad I finally got to read it. Starting on the 2nd book in the series now, A Court Of Mist And Fury

I finished the whole series of A Court of Rose and Thorns, by Sarah J. Maas last week. And I'll be starting Red Sister, by Mark Lawrence after I finish Maas's post-series novella A Court of something and something :P

Finished: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.

-It was alright. I can't say I'm too keen into jumping onto the next book. I'm still thinking if I should continue reading the trilogy. I probably would if I find extra time.

Started: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

-I'm 400 pages into it. I'll finish this one and then that's it for me. I most probably won't read the next books. It is too slow paced for my liking and it is literally just Twilight only trying to cater to an older audience. I also can't feel any chemistry between the two main characters.
