February Wrap-Up

wrapupfebruary

There’s still one day left of February but since I won’t finish a book or write a review before then I’ll post this wrap-up now. I had an okay-ish reading month. I could have gotten more done but oh well. Lately I’ve been focusing on my Gilmore Girls rewatch ❤


FINISHED READING

I’d heard of Richard Siken for a while because he’s often quoted online, and one night I decided to check him out finally and I didn’t regret it. I don’t read poetry often but this was beautiful. I didn’t rate it because it’s hard for me to rate poetry, especially if I’ve only read it once, but I really enjoyed most of the poems in this book.

I loved this so much. Such an unique story and beautiful writing. I’d definitely recommend it.

5/5 stars + a new favorite!

I finally don’t feel like an outsider anymore for not having read this book! Sadly it wasn’t all that, but I’ve heard the series improves so don’t worry, I’ll continue!

2/5 stars

STARTED READING

The Basic Eight the basic eight by daniel handler
by Daniel Handler

I started this on a whim because I was curious, but I haven’t had the time to finish it yet because I had to prioritize a library book. I’m only 15% in but it seems like it could be a fun and disturbing one so I can’t wait to get into it properly.

norsk fantasyBlodets Galskap
by Elisabeth Øvreberg

This is the library book I had to prioritize. It’s a Norwegian fantasy and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The basic premise is interesting but I’m not liking the way the omniscient narrator works and the instalove is a bit too much for me (even though it’s refreshing that it’s one sided and not straight).

    I had a not-so-hot reading month as well, with only four books read. We are like opposites with Throne of Glass and DOSAB– I loved ToG but couldn’t get past the first 50 pages of DOSAB! Either way, I hope you enjoy CoM more. I’m on Heir of Fire and it’s my goal to catch up on the series this year.
