Week in Review - Week 22

Random Thoughts

The great reading continues. I was a bit worried because sometimes it is hard to keep on reading after you read books that you really love... The others dull in comparison. But, I think reading so much and blogging over the years has made me know my reading to a point where if I have a DNF book it is because of my mood and not the book. Otherwise, nothing has really not worked for me this year. (Stuff has to start, though, because I need to get rid of more books! lol) I am excited to see where my reading takes me next!

Weekly Reading

Rat Queens - Volume 3 ~ Okay, I lied in my opening post. I didn't really like this. I love the idea of this series, but this one just seemed all over the place and I had a hard time connecting with the story. I read Volume 2 not that long ago, but I felt like I had no idea what was even happening in this one. And, then there is drama happening with the writer and the artists. So, I don't know if I will read Volume 4... There are just better series out there!

Blue Lily, Lily Blue ~ I am so proud of myself... The third book in a series read soon after reading books 1 and 2. Normally it takes me forever to accomplish this and then I have no idea what is going on. But, I was determined to not let that happen and read this one right after finishing The Dream Thieves. I really enjoyed this one! I read it a bit slower than the other books in the series, but not because it was bad... Just because life happens! So happy I read it! Strongly recommended!

The Raven King ~ Well, I read this book on Friday... The whole thing. I haven't done that in ages because work, life, etc happens. But, once I hit a certain point, I stayed up way too late to see what happened. I loved it. I loved this series. I am so glad that I finally read a series straight through and got the enjoyment that I always seem to miss by letting too much time go by. And, while I wish I had discovered this series before now, I think waiting worked out. Strongly recommended!

The Tithe - Volume 1 ~ One thing I am trying to do is not neglect my books on my e-reader. This is a book from a Humble Bundle. And, since I just bought another Humble Bundle *cough*, I really need to read the stragglers left over from other ones. I had heard good things about this comic and am surprised it took me so long to get to it. I enjoyed it! It reminded me a bit of Genius, and I think it would appeal to fans of that. Recommended!

  1. I'm glad you joined us on the 30 days of books. I'm rereading The Raven Boys right now so I can read the rest of the series. I tried reading the second one it didn't know what was going on. I'm going to do better!

  2. I read The Raven Boys at the beginning of the month, and I'm waiting for a nice open stretch to breeze through the rest of the series. It seems like a fun one to just immerse yourself in.

  3. There are many books I DNF because of mood/context rather than simply not liking the book. Like you, I feel that years of reading/blogging has been really beneficial on that front.
    Also, I really want to read Dorothy Must Die, but I've been hesitant. But Oz is one of my favorites, and I love stories inspired by it.

  4. I clasped my hands in joy over you finishing the Raven Cycle. I'm so, so glad you loved the last two books! As soon as I finished The Raven King, I was ready for a reread of the whole series -- I just love them all so much, and I hated to leave that world and those characters behind.

  5. I'm seeing Mr. Splitfoot everywhere today!

  6. I am really hoping to finally read the Raven Cycle books this summer! Better late than never to join in the fun, huh? :P And of course, I shouldn't count my chickens before they're hatched--I think my mental list of books I really really really really really want to read this summer is in the hundreds... :/
