September was an average reading month, I guess. I read 3 books. It’s not much, but it’s still more than no books read or just one book read. Of course, it also means I am “behind schedule” on my Goodreads challenge, but hopefully I’ll manage to catch up. And, if I don’t, well, better luck next year! 😀
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Kind of a reread, kind of a new read, since this time I read the Latvian translation of Cinder. There weren’t too many things that bothered me in the translation, so that’s good. 🙂 The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan: The picture shows the first book, since now the second one is at Sis’ and I got the first one back from her. 😀 The Power by Naomi Alderman
During July and August I read 9 books. 4-ish of them were rereads. Only three are pictured, because 5 of the read books are on Kindle and I wasn’t happy with the picture that has the Kindle in it. 😀 And another book is currently read by Sis. So let’s just look at the full list of read books.
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.
Not a particularly good month in reading. Only two books. 😦 I hope that September will be better, though school has started and there won’t be so much time for reading. But back to August. I read The Last Star by Rick Yancey (the ending was heartbreaking) and City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. I also hope that this or next Wednesday I will be back with The Sis Reviews.
Read in August: Dita
August definitely turned out better than July. I mean, I finished no books during July, while August has crossed 5 books off my TBR. Woot! I finished:
I also hoped to finished The Assassin’s Blade by S. J. Mass in August (because it would’ve fit a prompt in the Summer edition of Bookish Bingo), but I didn’t quite managed that. I finished the book, but already in September. Oh well. Read More »
In July, I also posted the last two Bookish Childhood Memories posts #5, #6.
Read in July: Dita
So, basically, July was not a reading month for me. No books finished in July. Like, I read a bit, but finished nothing. What a blasphemy! But I did have a bunch of translation work to do, which tends to take away reading time.
At least I coloured some bits and pieces in my Pride and Prejudice colouring book. So there’s that at least. 😀Read More »
1) I really love cheese. Blue cheese, string cheese, camambert type cheese, cheesy cheese. Whatever. Cheese. I mean, before a friend of mine moved to another city and I visited her, her mom used to joke that I won’t die of hunger at them, because they have cheese. I’m starting to think that this joke has also been used a couple of times at BF’s parents house. Yes, I like cheesy cheese and I cannot lie.
2) I’m not friends with the kitchen. 99% of the cooking here is done by my BF. I can wash the dishes, help with something, make a few select dishes and bake brownies (that’s like my signature thing now – brownies), but overall I don’t really like to spend too much time in the kitchen.Read More »
Drum rolls, please. I have read one book in June. And this one book is The Elite by Kiera Cass. But at least I have been active in posting. In June I started a new feature called Bookish Childhood Memories. You can find the posts here #1, #2, #3, #4. And I reviewed The Selection by Kiera Cass.
Read in June: Dita
June was a very productive month reading wise. I finished 7 books in June, including a Kindle book. Go me! I read all the books I had on my TBR for June, which were the last three books from The Raven Cycle, plus a couple more, including one Kindle book. And I’ve also completed and surpassed my Goodreads Reading Challenge. Currently, it’s 32/30 books. Go me, again!
