What I Read This Month
I’ve been in a reading slump for the last two weeks so I didn’t read many books this month.
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde; I expected to absolutely love this book but I unfortunately didn’t. I didn’t like the writing and I wasn’t particulary fond of some characters or even the story itself. 3/5 stars
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh; I’ve read Ahdieh’s other book, The Wrath and the Dawn and I didn’t like it as much as I would want to. So going into this book I was a bit hesitant. But I don’t regret it because I freaking love it! It’s been awhile since I’ve read a ya book where I had nothing, and I mean NOTHING, against the romance. And romance isn’t even the main part of this book. Ahhh, so good. 4.5/5 stars
My Diversity Bingo 2017 Progress In This Month
As I said, I’m in a reading slump so I’m really mad I didn’t get to some of the books I have picked for this challenge. I started When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore for ‘trans MC’ and The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heiling for ‘biracial MC’ and I enjoyed both very much but only got halfway through because I needed to read May’s new releases & my most anticipated 2017 books. I’ll get to them in June tho because I really did like both. I also started When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon for ‘Indian MC’ a couple of hours ago and I’m enjoying it so far.
Books I Bought This Month
Yes, I finally bought a physical book after 5 months of being good and not buying any. I FEEL LIKE HUMAN AGAIN. I forgot how much I love the smell of a new book.
