How many books have I read this year?

Welcome back to Miscellaneous! I know what you’re thinking: where have you BEEN? Reviewing books for the Inky Awards of course. Check out my shadow judging blog to see what I’ve thought of the books so far!

Moving onwards, I was sitting here just thinking about the books I’ve read so far this year. It’s already HALFWAY through 2018, so I thought I’d give you my list of what I’ve read to see if you guys think I’ve been slacking off:

Currently Reading:

THE FATES DIVIDE YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I’m going to review both Carve the Mark and Fates Divide together as well as compare them to the Divergent series because I HAVE A LOT TO SAY.

So what do you think? Too little or just the right amount for 6 months of reading? How many books have you read this year?

I literally have no life, but I have friends who have read more so I’m like ?

The secret to reading more books is to read whenever you have time. On the toilet, before bed, walking from and to classes and while eating

I'll let you know a little secret: I can't multitask :)

What a feat!
Just wondering, but you said you’d read Angel, alongside Maximum Ride and School’s Out Forever. Was Angel a re-read, because it’s one of the later books in the series

No, I read them completely out of order & was very confused and lost, then trashed them because I was like ‘what is going on’ and then realised that I read them out of order and gave up :(

I actually did the same for the series! I was in grade 5 or 6, when I saw ‘Fang’ in Borders (throwback wow) and tried to borrow it from my library, but my librarian told me I borrowed out the latest book in the series (it was at the time). I read the series from the start then, and it’s still one of my all time favs!

In reply to otaku

I saw everyone on the bandwagon and decided to jump on - 100% now understand that it is directed to people below my age, but was a fun read for the most part!
