Three days till thesis defence, you guys. I am both nervous and a bit nauseous because of reasons. But let’s not get into that until I absolutely have to. What I want to talk about is reading and how I’m enjoying reading so much after such a long time. I have given myself permission to read what I want to when I want to so even though I have books to review, they’re all books I want to read. I think having my Kindle stolen may have been a good thing because loss aside, it made me realize just how much I love reading physical books. There’s something to be said for convenience and the ease with which you can take books everywhere with a Kindle but if you are a tactile person like me, then feeling the page, the actual page and not a virtual manifestation of one, is priceless.
Books I Read Last Week:
- Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn
I’ll do a review of this but I didn’t actually like it as much as I had hoped to.
- Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
This was fantastic. 5 stars.
- It by Alexa Chung
- Will O’the Wisp by Tom Hammock
I liked this. The art was beautiful and the story solid. 4 stars.
- Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater
Cole was fun. 4 stars.
- Skip Beat 3 in 1 vol. 22-23-24 by Yoshiki Nakamura
I love Skip Beat so this was an automatic 5 stars for me.
- Cast in Flame – Michelle Sagara
The only thing that saved this one from being 2 stars is my hope that the next one will be better.
- Burn Bright by Bethany Frenette
I enjoyed this quite a bit. 4 stars.
- The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy by Kate Hattermer
I enjoyed this somewhat.
- The Cabinet of Curiousities by Stefan Bachmann et al
This is to my liking. Short themed stories. The book is huge so it’s going to take me a while to get through but I figure a story a day will suffice.
- Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard
I haven’t actually started this one but there are dragons.
To Read in the Upcoming Week
When I finish Vigilante Poets, I think I’ll slip back into fantasy. I’m thinking about reading any of the following:
- Nightingale’s Nest by Nikki Loftin
- The Riverman by Aaron Starmer
- Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley
