Good lord that month went fast. I don’t know if it was because I slept most of it away (turns out my reaction to my first vaccine shot is just to sleep like the dead), or because I’m falling further down the hole of “what is time?” but, woo. At least I got 9 books read! Not as many as I would have liked, but some of the ones I did read were SUPER long, so I blame that.
(None of which were from my TBR list… oops! But we’ll get to that at the end.)
What I read:
21 in 2021
- Dry by Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
- Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
- World War Z by Max Brooks
- A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Angelfall by Susan Ee
- The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee Replica by Lauren Oliver
- Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
- Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
- Moloka’i by Alan Brennert
- Peony in Love by Lisa See
- Wicked by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
- The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
- Feed by M.T. Anderson
- The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Won’t lie, I hadn’t realized I’d rated all three of Maas’ books that I read this month with the same rating of a single star. Let’s just say I highly, highly regret buying these before even knowing if I liked Maas’ style (turns out it’s one of the biggest nopes for me I’ve ever had, sorry to those that love her), but I was going on a recommendation from someone who had never missed with me before and was so sure I would like them. 18-year-old me probably would have, but 29-year-old me just… can’t. I’m gonna finish the series since I’ve started it and own it (and then peddle them off to my sister, who loves Maas), but if I ever express a want to read Crescent City, this is your go-ahead to track me down and clock me a good one.
Anyway. Completely forgot to read any of my TBR books aside from Assassin (which I’ll get to at the end of the TOG series), so I’ll have to make sure I pick that back up this month. I have Dry and Renegades AND An Ember in the Ashes all ready to go (meaning I also have the audiobooks checked out to help me along if needed), I just have to actually start.
Problem is, I get my second dose of vaccine on Tuesday this week, and I might just sleep the month away again. There might be a mass scramble at the end of this year, anticipate frazzled me!
