In June I managed to fulfill my goal of reading (at least) 6 books, which is great. Although I still am slightly behind schedule on my Goodreads Challenge, but I still have time. And, well, so what that I’m behind, at least I’m reading. 🙂
So, June turned out to be quite the month for reading in Latvian. I read four books by Latvian authors – Kaķa lāsts (Cat’s Curse), Kaķis maisā (Cat in a Bag) and Kaķa koncerts (Cat’s Concert) by Linda Nemiera and Mirušie nepiedod (The Dead Don’t Forgive) by Ieva Melgalve. The Skulduggery Pleasant on Kindle you see in the picture is not the actual one I read (I mean, I did once read it on Kindle, but not this time). For my reread in preparation for the second Skulduggery Pleasant, which I have a paperback of, I borrowed Sis’ copy of the Latvian translation of Skulduggery Pleasant, which is called Blēžagabals Jaukums. At first it was a bit weird with all the absurd names in Latvian, but, I mean, they are just as absurd/weird as in English, except they are translated in Latvian. 😀 Well, and I also finished ‘the evil book’, that is, A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (which was actually the first book I finished in June :D).
Even though the month was average, you could say it was musical… or filled with songs… or something that actually sounds like a cool pun regarding the ‘song’ in two of the books read.
I might also add that I did not accomplish my April TBR goal which was reading 4 books, preferably (at least) one on Kindle. Oh well. Better luck in May! Haha. Keep on reading to see how May turned out. Read More »
I think I would have read more, but I’m having some kind of reading slump. I want to read but… And suddenly I have a fear of big books – 400+ pages. And if the book has 200-300 pages then the font is too freaking small! (Yeah, I used to not have problems with that also)
Read in March: Dita
During March, I finished five books. One of them was a re-read.
The last book of The 5th Wave trilogy – The Last Star. I can’t say that I liked it. It was meh. The ending was weird. Partly it was okay, but, at the same time, there were some things I don’t know why were even happening.
The most nerve-wracking person was Sam. I still don’t get how old is he. Five? Six? He’s acting like he is at least 10 or 11. I just hate him!!! 😡😡😡 I don’t get why he hates Cassie, but adores Ben.
Well hello there world! The Sis Reviews are back. I don’t even know why they were gone. 😀 But I can assure you that in these few months of silence I have read many books and therefore have many reviews to write. 🙂
Obsidian I bought last year in October, while I was in Germany. This book was bought under pressure. 😀 That is, I was in bookshop with two non-bookworm friends and they wanted to go out as soon as possible. And the English section in the bookshop was small, partly because I already own some of the books. (Later I had to spend an hour in H&M and I got only, like, what 10 minutes in bookshop😑) So I bought Obsidian…😕
While in Germany, I started to read it, but after 20 pages or so I gave up because the cringe was too huge. And in January I decided to give it a try again, because I wanted to read something cheesy. And, boy, was it CHEESY.Read More »
Not a bad month reading-wise. Three finished books. Nothing too great, but not too bad either. In September I finished Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (silly, hilarious, sometimes utterly silly, but still fun), Mythago Wood (there’s something really intriguing about it, but it was also somewhat hard to get into) and The Last Star (I don’t know, the series ended, things happened, it wasn’t bad, I suppose, but neither was it great). I’ll try to work on some reviews for those, but don’t hold your breath too much. 😀Read More »
I know I haven’t reviewed City of Fallen Angels, but, honestly, I don’t remember what happened in it. 😀 So I’m gonna skip it and review (actually, fangirl about) City of Lost Souls.
I hate it. And love it. I don’t know. 😀 I have made some notes while reading this book and now re-reading them makes me laugh.
The thing- person- I hated the most in this book was Jace. It’s not that I have liked him very much in the previous books, but in this one he was very annoying, too freaking sassy and too much in love with himself.Read More »
I want to hug him (Ernest Cline) and, at the same time, punch him. This book… just WOW. I got this book for Dita’s birthday last year, I guess. Or maybe something else. Don’t remember. 😀 Anyway some time ago I read the first two chapters and I guess wasn’t dragged into it, so I just gave up for a while. But now I decided to give it a try. And I wasn’t disappointed.Read More »
