What I read this week (books with * have a review coming!):
On the edge of the dark sea of darkness* – Andrew Peterson – DNF! This just was bad.. After reading lots of disappointing books I didn’t want to force myself to read this one!
Red, White & Royal Blue* – Casey McQuiston (audio) – 3 Stars! I can see the hype, but I think there was a bit too much American politics and drama in this one for me!
Lock every door – Riley Sager – 4.5 Stars! Why did I think I could read a thriller and still sleep at night!? Couldn’t put this book down though! Slightly disappointed with the very end though.
Five feet apart – Rachael Lippincott (audio) – 3 Stars! Honestly this was better than I had expected!
Bloom – Kevin Panetta & Savanna Ganucheau – 5 Stars! This was just very cute!
The mermaid’s voice returns in this one – Amanda Lovelace – no rating! Idk how to rate poetry, or read it tbh. There were some beautiful poems in here though!
Black leopard, Red wolf – Marlon James – DNF @250 pages! I have no idea what I read.. The writing just really threw me off.
Contemporary-A-Thon wrap up!
So to remind you, the challenges were:
- Read a contemporary book with green on the cover!
- Read a contemporary from a new to you author!
- Read a diverse contemporary (it’s black history month)!
- Read a backlist contemporary (something that has been on your TBR for over a year)
- Read a dark/hard hitting contemporary!
- Read a contemporary with an illustrated cover!
- Read a contemporary that is beloved by a member of the book community!
Red, white & Royal Blue: completes challenge: 2, 3, 6, 7.
Lock every door: completes challenge: 2, 5 (I thought the ending was dark?!), 7.
Bloom: completes challenge: 2, 6.
Five feet apart: completes challenge: 2, 4, 5 (?)
So the only one I didn’t complete is the challenge of green on the cover! So I’m pretty happy with this!
What I’m currently reading:
The wicked + the divine book one – Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie – Not sure if I’m liking this? But I will definitely finish it!
Traitor to the throne – Alwyn Hamilton – Finally continuing this series and loving this!
Heart of flames – Nicki Pau Preto – one of my most anticipated releases! So happy to read this one!
