The first week of June was not a good reading week for me. It’s not until the weekend that I ended up finishing a book. But a book a week is better than none, right?
I have joined a month-long readathon where I need to read 5 books and 3 extra books if I am up for it. I am quite confident that I can manage to finish all that, though I am not so sure now. Hopefully, I can finish more books in the next week.
So let’s get into the books.
Currently Reading 📖
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
↠I am almost 40% into the book. So far I am enjoying it. I like how there is a build-up with Jane’s character as a child up until she was 18. I can see the romance coming into play in the story but I am still undecided if I like it or not. Even so, I am enjoying this book more than I expected.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
↠This is book 2 for Mistborn and if you have read my review of the first book, you would know that I did not like it as much as I hope I did. And I pick this book up because I was already behind with the Cosmerealong and I need to catch up. However, I am only 5% in this book but I am already hesitant to read it after the first book. I cannot set aside my prejudice because we are dealing with the same characters and I am still not liking Vin. Hopefully, I can finish it this month.
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
↠This book is for one of the prompts in the readathon that I joined in. I am only 6% into this book. I don’t have much to say about it but my initial reaction is there is a family drama. Not so sure what to feel about it but we’ll make do. So far I am intrigued by the plot. I have heard a lot of good things about it. Hopefully, it will not disappoint.
Read Books 📚
Frostbite by Richelle Mead
↠I reread Vampire Academy this year and thought that I should continue on. However, at some point in this book, I regret my reread. The book is not as timeless as I hope, at some point, it somehow felt that it was written for younger audiences. It does not really appeal to me the same way as it did before but towards the end and the climax, I found myself enjoying this book again. Though I am not sure if I will continue on with my reread of the whole series yet.
So that is all for my recent reads. Hopefully, I can find my motivation to read more again.
Until next time!
