Hello guys, how’s your weekend going? We’re almost in February so I figured I’d do a little wrap-up posts. I haven’t gotten around to doing any of these before, so this is my first one. Yay. Hopefully I read enough every month to be able to continue on with it, haha.
Just an FYI, I never read this much in a month usually. The only reason I read this many is because of the RYBSAT readathon.
Without further ado…
The Private Eye: The Cloudburst Edition (ARC) by Brian K. Vaughan
and Marcos Martin (artist)
A very quirky, interesting, and diverse graphic novel series.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Unfortunately very disappointing. Found it pretty boring and bland writing-wise.
Den Sommeren Pappa Ble Homo by Endre Lund Eriksen
(translation: The Summer My Dad Turned Gay)
Listening to this on audiobook, read by the author, is the best decision I’ve ever made.
Hilarious, adorable, and realistic.
The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
A very gripping and haunting thriller, I enjoyed it a lot.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
A very emotional read about a boy with a deformed face.
Room by Emma Donoghue
Another emotional and intense book. I enjoyed the 5 year old POV, I don’t think I’ve ever read an adult novel from such a young perspective before. It slowed down a bit towards the end, but overall it was good.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I’m loving it this far! Superb world-building, just like the hype said.
