Reading Wrap Up: June

These images are taken from my personal bookstagram account

Well, it was a matter of time before the inevitable reading slump got to me and it turns out June was that time of the year. Hopefully I manage to turn things around for July, even though the first book I picked up for July is a honker of a thousand plus pages (1376 pages to be exact), which I hope to finish soon. But who cares about July when I haven’t even talked about June yet, so here we go.

Reading Wrap Up: May

Images taken from my personal bookstagram account

Here we are, almost at the midpoint of 2017, and I’m enjoying reading just as much as I did at the beginning of the year. Not to jinx it, but I’ve successfully avoided reading slumps and I’m ahead of my challenge which means I can now pick up heavier books. That being said, I do love an occasional adult romance novel these days, so there will be few of them mentioned here and in the future. Also, for this month I wanted to shake things up a bit and I added visuals to my post. It took me ages! Like, honestly, it took me less time to actually write the reviews than to pick the images to accompany each book! That being said, here is my newly refreshed reading wrap up of all the books I read in May.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Things I Want to Read More of In YA

This week I was lucky with the theme because once I decided to keep my list in the young adult genre, I was taking down notes like crazy. It’s like I struck gold, though some of the things I mention here I already discussed a few weeks ago, but I hope nobody minds. So here is a list of ten things I wish YA had more of.

Another month has come and gone and I’ve kept up with my reading quite well! The second half of the month took a slow turn for me and then I got stuck on rereading A Court of Thorns and Roses. But I’ll finish it today and continue on with the second book while I’m dreaming of the moment A Court of Wings and Ruin finds its way to my hands. Anyway, slow second half of the month aside, I managed to be super good with reading at the beginning of April, so I still I have seven books to mention.

Reading Wrap Up: March

Follow my book related Instagram @fangirlshideout

After a slow start to the month, I found some magical reading energy and powered through quite a few young adult romance novels by the end of March. It’s still quite sad to look at my reading list this year so far because there are clearly some strong reading slumps that I’ve avoided with easy reads. While there’s nothing wrong with easy-reads, I feel like I need to grab for heavier books and topics, and I need to finish a lot of unfinished series! Plus, even though I’ve never managed to actually stick with a TBR list, I should give it a go in April… I should, and I know could.. but would I!? Probably not.
