Okay, what the hell is this post? I have no idea. I took a very long and unannounced blogging hiatus due to my big move, and I’m currently waiting for life to ease back onto track. I wish the movers would hurry the bonkers up so I could at least set up my apartment, but alas, I am stuck in a limbo situation where I don’t have the comforts nor mentality to blog, so I feel displaced from my reality at the moment.
However, the lack of any new posts on my blog page is starting to look pathetic to me, so I’ve decided to spontaneously blitz through a throwaway post in which I ramble about my meager reading updates. This is honestly a weird post since I give no shits writing it, so feel free to ignore me: there’s no point to this post, I just want to say I’m not dead.
So hi. I’m not dead.
What I read this past month:
Bring Me Their Hearts (~3.5 stars)
Not gonna lie, I fell into a massive reading slump during the last two months or so during my move. However, this book is pretty durn fun, and it helped shake the fog out of my brain, just a bit. I mean, the protagonist is a snarky zombie who just wants to chow down her prince’s heart, so that’s already a better love story than Twilight, right?
The Amulet of Samarkand (~5 stars)
What are you doing with your life if you haven’t read the Bartimaeus trilogy yet? People who know me know that this is my favorite series ever besides Harry Potter, and this re-read massively helped shake off the last vestiges of my reading slump.
Like, I was giggling so much reading it that I fell off the treadmill at one point.
What I’m reading now:
The Shadows of Self (~4.5 stars)
Man, Sanderson’s prose really snapped up in the second era of the Mistborn trilogy. I literally couldn’t stand his prose during the first era, so this series is much more enjoyable now that his sentences have a clear structure: it’s allowing me to focus on the characters better, so I have a feeling that this book is going to impress me heaps. 🙂
Foundryside (currently ~5 stars)
I’m currently on page 70 of this, and I’m having a blast! There’s a talking key that is the cuuutest character I’ve read in a while, and the world-building is cool. This book makes me curious to see how it will end, so wish me good luck!
Lastly, what am I going to read next?
……..derrrrrp. Don’t know, don’t care.
***So that’s the post! I’m positive that I’ve been completely forgotten in the two months that I’ve been away, but hey ho, that’s life. I do miss you people in the blogosphere a lot, so apologies that I haven’t been popping in to say hi. I don’t know when I’ll fall back into schedule again, but it really depends on when the movers get here.
They are two weeks late, and ME NO HAPPY.
