Hello, there bookworms. 2016 has finally bid us goodbye. A new year means new reading experience; a new world to explore and new authors to discover. But before moving along with all new things, I decided to have a look back at the books that I have read for the past year.
I have to say that I have a good reading month considering that I’m getting out of my slump. I managed to read 5 books this month. According to my Goodreads reading challenge, I am on track BUT I am already ahead of 2 books. I’ll justify myself in a sec.
Let’s get into the books!
October is over. And it is time for another monthly book haul and wrap-up. I only read 3 books this month but I accumulated a lot of books. This month is a good book hoarding month but a not so good reading month because of my slump.
Let’s proceed to the wrap-up first! I read good books this month.
🎃 My True Love is Blue – 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑
I find this book whimsical in its own way. The way art is incorporated and how the story revolves around grief and moving forward adds another touch to the plot as a whole. The book is short yet I feel like it offered different genre, from dark fiction to mystery. I like it and highly recommend it to those who love a quick read, loves art or just fascinated by how the painting was put into words.
🎃 The Girl in 6E – 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑
This book is not what I expected it to be. It did not meet my expectation, although the pace of the story is fast and there is something about the ending of every chapter that keeps you from reading the next chapter. Still, it’s a bit disappointing considering all the hype that it receives before.
🎃 First Heist – 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑
I enjoyed this novella of the Omar Zagouri Thriller. I’m more attached to the character in this novella rather than the novel that I read from previous months. The characters really showcased their personality in this novella.
And now for the books that I accumulated this month. I’ll be dividing this book into two, brand new books and second-hand books.
The month of September has already come and go. And it’s time for another monthly wrap-up. This month a reading slump takes over my life and it sucks. I only managed to finished reading 2 books.😭 And because of that, I’m combining my September wrap-up and book haul. I accumulated 8 books in the month of September plus other shenanigans. Let’s get on with the wrap-up first.
The month of August is already over and it is time for another wrap-up! I managed to read 9 books and 1 book that I did not finish. I’ll be linking down below my reviews for the books that I’ve read and I’ll be sharing some thoughts on the books that I didn’t review.
Let’s proceed now to my wrap up!
Soooo… The reading decathlon was finished last August 25. I’m too ambitious to think that I can read 10 full novels or books in a span of 10 days. Sadly, I can’t. I managed to read 6 books. 5 full novels and 1 novella. I ended up being in a very short slump for 3 days out of 10 days and I’m only reading at night. I’m still proud of myself for finishing 6 books in 10 days.
Since the start of 2016, I’m most proud of my reading wrap up than any other month. I’ve managed to read 10 books!
