Hallelujah, I’m back 😀
So, for the past year I’ve gotten back into reading in a way I haven’t since my teenage years. Last year I managed to read 51 books which was 50 more than the year before. Pretty much a win in my book. This year I’ve put my Goodreads goal to 52 books, not a drastic increase but I want to be sure I can hit it while still remaining a challenge. One book a week should do that for me.
So, since me reading have been lacking for the past 10 years I’ve basically missed every big thing within the literary community and it’s time to catch up. For January I had a goal to finish 5 books and I spent the month binge reading Cassandra Clairs books.
- City of Fallen Angles
- City of Lost Souls
- City of Heavenly Fire
- Clockwork Angel
- Clockwork Prince
- Clockwork Princess
I loved them all and you can bet your behinds I’ve already ordered The Bane Chronicles, Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy and Lady Midnight. And on top of that I’m following the tv-show Shadowhunters religiously. Say what you want about the accuracy to the books, it still highly entertains me.
If you for some reason haven’t read these books yet I would suggest you get right on top of that. It’s fast paced, with fun and interesting characters that you will end up both loving and hating.
On top of these books I also finished
which was a slight disappointment over all. It’s a compilation of 12 short stories by 12 YA authors and while some of the stories were interesting enough there were also some I just couldn’t finish. Either for their share ridiculousness or I just found them boring or uninteresting. I got the feeling that some of the stories had been written for the book and not because it was a story the author wanted to tell.
I can safely say I hit my goal of 5 books for the month and I’m feeling pretty fly (dusting of the shoulder). Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up for February.
