This was an amazing reading week! I got a lot done, which really helps keep me motivated reading-wise. I finally feel like my reading slump is completely over, and I am back into some really great books.
The first book I read this week was The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin. It was a great little children’s fantasy book with fantastic illustrations. You can check out my review here if you’re interested.
Then I moved on to The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. I’ve slowly been reading the Percy Jackson series this year – I honestly don’t know why I never read them when I was younger, because I’ve been really into mythology since I was in middle school. I really enjoyed this one, and am planning on finishing the series soon so I can read the rest of Riordan’s books. His newest one sounds really good – I love Norse mythology.
This week, I also listened to the audiobook of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. I got some really cool coloring books for Christmas (including Enchanted Forest, which is my favorite) so I’ve started listening to audiobooks while I color, which is nice and relaxing.
And finally, on Tuesday, I finished reading Through the Narrows, the second installment of the Tomahawk & Saber series by Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan. It was just as great as the first one, Language of the Bear (I gave both five stars). I will definitely be doing a review soon!
I am really close to finishing The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North, which I absolutely love so far! It’s going to make a great first book of 2016! After that, I’m planning on finishing up The Children’s Home by Charles Lambert (hopefully in time to put up a review next week), and then I will be reading The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman, which is an unofficial book club pick (those of us who finish the books we’re actually supposed to be reading tend to choose another book or two to read on the side).
This week, I also went book shopping with some Christmas money! On Monday, I went to the dollar bookstore (where literally everything is a dollar and it’s amazing) with my cousins, and bought some books I’ve been wanting to get for a while. Since my book haul is going up tomorrow, and I don’t feel like typing them all out, you can just check out that post to see what I got.
And I think that’s it for this week. I’m off to cram in all the homework I didn’t do over the holidays. Hope you had a great week and a fantastic start to the year!
