Posting this a day early, since tomorrow I’m posting a blog tour!
This was my first week working on my thesis, so that was tiring! Also I tried picking back up my normal workout schedule, because that wasn’t really there anymore after Christmas break and all the travelling I did in January.. So also, tiring! And in the time I had left over I tried to read my five books for polarthon! So conclusion, this week was just very tiring, but I tried and rest this weekend so that I would be ready for tomorrow!
What I read this week (books with * have a review coming!):
This is how you lose the time war – Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone – 2 stars! I really wanted to love this one, but I just could not connect with the writing..
The way past winter* – Kiran Millwood Hargrave (audio) – 3 stars! Very fun adventurous story, it just did not fully grasp my attention.
Wicked saints* – Emily A Duncan – 5 stars! Why did I wait so long with reading this?! Absolutely loved it!
The crown’s fate* – Evelyn Skye (audio) – 3.5 stars! See me starting and finishing a series within 2 months! Go me!
Winterwood* – Shea Ernshaw – 2 stars! This was.. disappointing..
A shiver of snow and sky* – Lisa Lueddecke (audio) – 2.5 stars! Wasn’t a fan of the first half, but the ending was good!

Good luck with your thesis!
I think Time War is one of those books that people either love or hate, I haven’t seen much in between. It’s so stylistic that it tends to the extreme reactions.
Thank you 🙂
It is! I also only see raving reviews, or 1/2 stars haah!
How You Lose the Time War is a love or hate type of book I think. I loved it but if you couldn’t get on board with the style I can see it would be an impossible read.
Yeah I definitely think it is! The style of this book was too confusing for me haha!
I’m so glad you loved Wicked Saints! It’s so good!
