These first 10 days of April have not been the best for me. I have been feeling like I’m in a reading slump and every time I’ve picked a book up I just wasn’t feeling it. Its also been very beautiful weather here so I’ve spent a lot of time doing yard work, or just spending time outside. So not reading or posting on here basically. I did (finally) finish two books though!
The first book I finished was for my Potions exam. The Potions exam goal was to read a book under 150 pages. For this exam I chose to read a graphic novel because it was the only book on my tbr under 150 pages.
Paper Girls Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan
I didn’t care for this one at all. I love Vaughan’s Saga series and I expected to enjoy this one as well, but that was not the case. Nothing about this book was for me and I gave it a 1-star sadly.
The second book I finished was for my Transfiguration Exam. For Transfiguration I had to read a book with shapeshifting in it. I read:
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
I rated this book a 3.5 stars. I have been enjoying historical fictions lately and wanted to give this one a try. Some parts were a bit slow for me, but overall I enjoyed this book. I will be continuing the series eventually, because I have a feeling the next book may be even better than this first one.
While I finished these two books, I also started two more books. I am currently reading The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli and The Marriage Game by Sara Desai.
ALSO apparently Herbology is not “Read a book that starts with an I” the font was just confusing and it is actually “Read a book that starts with an M.” I’m shocked and thankful I wasn’t the only person out there that was confused. I will be replacing Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo with The Marriage Game by Sara Desai. But I will still try to get to Into the Crooked Place sometime this month!
I hope this coming week will be more productive and I can finish some books and make more posts. My goal for this next 10 day period will be to finish at least 3 books! Is it possible? Yes. Can I actually do it? ….yes?…. We shall see!
How many books have you read so far this month? Let me know in the comments!
