November Rewind

In November I read 8 books. They were:

A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin
The Booby Trap and Other Bits and Boobs edited by Dawn O’Porter
Lets pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Unsouled by Neal Shusterman
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
The Casual Vacancy by J.k. Rowling
Slated by Terri Terry

After waiting a year for it to be published and then a week searching for a copy I finally got to read Unsouled by Neal shusterman. It was so good. I won’t say too much here  because I’m going to review it now that I’m not completely swamped with coursework.  The only bad thing is that I now have to wait another year for the final book to be published.

Most of the books I read in November were new to me. The two books I reread were The Casual Vacancy and Catching Fire. If you want to know what I thought about The Casual Vacancy you can read my review here.

I ended up going to see the film adaptation of Catching Fire the other day. It was well done but I thought that there were far to many kisses between Katniss and Gale. It and the previous film would have been a much better if the film makers had concentrated less on the love triangle and it had a certificate higher than a 12A.

In December I’m going to have to read at least 10 books because I challenged myself to read 75 books this year and I’m currently on 65 books.  I’ve had that little bar on Goodreads telling me that I’m behind schedule for about a month now.

September Rewind

In September I read 4 books. They were:

Geek Girl by Holly Smale
Black Friday by Robert Muchamore
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K Rowling)

September was a pretty busy month for me as I moved from London to university in an entirely new city . I enjoyed all the books that I read. I reviewed Geek Girl and am currently planning reviews of The Cuckoo’s Calling and Fangirl.

August Rewind

In August I read 5 books. They were:

Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs
A Storm of Swords 2: Blood and Gold by George R.R. Martin
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
In the Midst of Life by Jennifer Worth

August was a pretty good month because all of the books I read were new to me and not rereads.

Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children and Girl of nightmares were both disappointing. I was expecting them to be really good and they weren’t. Miss Peregrines home was just a bit average. Girl of nightmares was boring and lacked everything that made the first book good.

I really enjoyed Stardust and A Storm of Swords 2: Blood and Gold.

I’m currently about 300 pages into the next Game of Thrones book A Feast for Crows.

July Rewind

In July I read 7 books. They were:

Scott Pilgrim #1 by Bryan Lee O’Malley
The Etymologicon by Mark Forsyth
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
The hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Brigands M.C. by Robert Muchamore

The only new books I read were The Etymologicon and Lola and the Boy Next Door and I really liked them. I’m planning to review The Etymologicon soon.

April Rewind

In April I read 5 books. They were:

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran
Shadows of the Workhouse by Jennifer Worth
Though Thick and Thin by Gok Wan
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

I enjoyed A Clash of Kings, I found it a lot easier to read than the first one.  In the last month or two I’ve been reading more Non-fiction and I really liked Shadows of the Workhouse by Jennifer Worth and Though Thick and Thin by Gok Wan.

However I really disliked How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran, I thought it was really problematic. I’m trying to write a review of it but I keep getting annoyed at things in the book and stopping.

March Rewind

In March I read 11 books. They were:

Sever by Lauren Destefano
Call The Midwife by Jennifer Worth
Farewell to the East End by Jennifer Worth
The Recruit by Robert Muchamore
Class A by Robert Muchamore
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Maximum Security by Robert Muchamore
Love and Other Four Letter Words by Carolyn Mackler
The Killing by Robert Muchamore
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Divine Madness by Robert Muchamore

March was accidentally the month of rereads as only the first 3 books I read were new to me. I found Sever by Lauren Destefano quite disappointing.
