I read books last week. A lot of them. I was feeling down for reasons and my way of coping with sad feelings is to read. A lot. So here’s what I got through. Prepare to be impressed.
- The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
I liked this well enough but…
- Tiger Moon – Antonia Michaelis
- The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater
Just as fantastic on the second read.
- The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
Loved it on the second read.
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater
I enjoyed this but not as much as the other two.
- Jamilti and Other Stories – Rutu Modan
I liked this but it wasn’t my favourite.
- Children of War – Deborah Ellis
Made my heart ache.
- 11 volumes of Me and My Brothers – Hari Tokeino
I read this all in one night. O.O
- 4 volumes of Rere Hello – Touko Minami
The art is extraordinarily good here. Plus, I like that the main character isn’t a typical shoujo heroine. I read translations.
So 22 books in total. Yep. Prolific, I was.
Now on to what I’m reading. Surprising no one, after my gluttony last week, I’m reading just one book currently:
I’m enjoying this quite a bit. It’s definitely one of the creepier books I’ve read but since it’s not a movie, I’m not as scared as I could be. Good times.
And what do I plan to read?
Definitely Ms. Marvel. I have the book, I’ve just been waffling about reading it because the wait for the next one is so long. I will also read Earthling a graphic novel I was sent for review. Plus some picture books I got for review as well. I will also probably give Wheel of the Infinite by Martha Wells a try. Some other books I may give in and read include The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black and Love is the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson. We’ll see what I feel like.
