I set my goals low last month for my TBR as I had a lot on – but actually, I got a lot of reading done! I’m so proud with my progress. I conquered my TBR as well as managed to finish a series that’s been on my shelves for a long time, and begin my (re)read of Jennifer Donnelly’s Waterfire Saga!
I actually featured A Court of Mist & Fury on last month’s recap – woops – so ignoring that, my favourite read this month was With Malice by Eileen Cook. It was such a surprise and not at all what I was expecting. I’m also super enjoying the Waterfire Saga.
Biggest disappointment this month was And I Darken by Kiersten White. I was so let down by this one and just thinking about it now makes me tremble with rage!
My main goal this month is to finish Jennifer Donnelly’s Waterfire Saga. I’ve only ever read Deep Blue (which I loved, even on my re-read!) so I’m super eager to finish this series. I just love anything by Jennifer Donnelly it seems. I’m also going to dive into Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and the sequel that comes out this month. I wasn’t that impressed with her Dark Elements series, so we’ll see if this New Adult series is any better.
And… I’m finally going to re-read and finish Holly Black’s Curseworkers series. I’ve only got Black Heart to go, but as I read the first two back in 2011, a re-read is in order. My shiny new copies arrived this week so I am stoked, stoked, STOKED to get into them again. These books are my favourite of Holly Black’s.
I’m still on my book-buying ban, but I did get some new books this month… I haven’t made pretty images for them, so I’m just going to list them…
- White Cat by Holly Black
- Red Glove by Holly Black
- Black Heart by Holly Black
- With Malice by Eileen Cook (I won this on Allen & Unwin’s Facebook competition!)
