Guys I am so proud of myself this month! For the first time ever, I finished all my arcs releasing this month! This is giving me a huge boost of motivation to keep it up!
I competed in both Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge and the Bookemon Readathon. I finished criteria in WWRC, which I’m always excited about. I ended up reading 12 books again this month! I also read a few books over 600 pages, which is kind of unheard of from me!
My favorite read this month was From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout. I couldn’t put it down. My least favorite was probably The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea. I just had a lot of trouble with the pacing and found myself getting bored.
Here’s what I ended up reading this month!
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Great conclusion to the series! It made me sob in the shower.
The Stone of Sorrow by Brook Carter
I still can’t get over this cover.
Sisters of the Perilous Heart by Sandra L Vasher
The virus in this book was SO interesting!
Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin
This was a second close to being my favorite read of the month!
The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall
I wish I liked this one more than I did. I really wanted to.
