I can’t believe it either.
Two whole books in one month and one was basically a picture book. Am as awestruck as you by my ability to slack.
Yes, it was Camp Nano but considering I only managed to reach half my goal it’s pretty amazing I did so badly on reading as well. I’ll blame it on my week long stomach bug that had me hallucinating (not really) and sleep my days away (yes really).
So lets get into my two reads.
- Simon vs. the Homonsapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
This book was a reread and I just can’t get enough of this wonderful tale and the even more wonderful characters. I swoon every time I talk about this book so just imagine the dreamy look in my eyes. I read this for the first time almost exactly a year ago and since then I’ve reread it 3 times. Basically, I just want to live in that world and be best friend with Simon. Can we arrange that, like pronto?
- An Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld by Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean
That’s a mouthful! It’s a fun addition to the shadowhunter world for the hardcore fan but definitely not a necessity. It took my just over an hour to read the entire thing so don’t expect any big reveals or background stories on you favorite characters. But the pictures are pretty and it’s just a fun thing to have.
So that’s about it for this week. My goal for this month was 2 books so I didn’t do that bad. But I put down 2 books with the reservation I was doing Camp Nano. And that didn’t go as planned. But better luck next month when I’m back to the standard 5 book goal. Woho!
