Wow. I’m almost to my goal of 200 books – I’m actually going to surpass it!
I’ve always been a reader, but this is a new level for me. This month alone I finished 27 books! Granted a few were short stories/novellas, but after finishing several 400 plus page books, I don’t feel bad including them. Besides, how else am I supposed to keep track!?
I was lucky enough to score an amazing slew of new releases this month from my library, I don’t know how I’m going to actually choose this month’s favorites! But even so, there are always a few stand outs.
Finally, some answers!! I might have come to the Maze Runner series a little late in the game, but it was oh so satisfying to finally get in on the dirty details of the maze and our favorite evil corporation, W.I.C.K.E.D. Dashner definitely went there, not sparing any of the dirty details, and that twist! Did you see it coming? I certainly didn’t. Review here.
Looking at my reading log, I obviously favor YA, particularly in the science fiction variety. Replica and Illuminae are both unique novels in the way the stories are presented. The first as a dual book, the second told in a series of multimedia documents. I can’t wait to read the next installments for both! Oh wait, I already am (well, one at least)! Somehow I scored the actual book, Gemina, and the audio version at the same time! Both are amazing!!!
Of course, my all time favorite this month is Kingdom of Ash and Briars, review here. Beautifully written, the novel interweaves elements from Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty with the Chinese legend of Mulan to create an amazingly unique story full of bravery, magic, and friendship. I can’t recommend it enough!
But honestly, I read so many great novels this month!
