Oh look it’s cold again. Yay…
But with the cold weather and crispy red leaves comes a new season, and a new season means a new tbr, and a new tbr means well you get the idea. For a slightly off topic and nothing to do with numbers Top Ten Tuesday, here what I did (and didn’t) manage to read this summer.The umbrella means I failed to finish and often start the novel this summer.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely
1 We’re off to a cracking start because not only did I read this but I loved it and watch tomorrows post because there might be a review in the pipeline!
2 So far we’re doing well! Although less well because I actually hated this book. The protagonist was just problematic. Again, watch this space, review sitting in my drafts and definitely publishing soon.
3 Wasn’t Cath just so perfect? Until she became the Queen of Hearts that is. Urg this novel was just excellent.
One of Us Is Lying
4 I read this novel in about 2 days. It had me gripped, and I just couldn’t put it down. Prepare for a very gushy review soon.
5 I find it hilarious that I said ‘perserverence in the face of adversity’ when I originally wrote my summer tbr, then promptly returned the book to the library and haven’t thought about it since. Hahaha oops.
6 Oh this book was fantastic. Except for everything that happened in Tella’s love life, of which I was not a fan. But otherwise, fantastic.
Shadow and Bone
7 I actually brought a copy so kudos for that, right?
Stalking Jack the Ripper
8 I don’t even know what happened with this one, I just didn’t even really try.
9 I loved A Darker Shade of Magic and my of Vicious, the pretty cover with the cream background and dark painted bones on front which I got signed and personalised over summer, was my most highly anticipated read on this list. And, crazily enough, I actually read it! And loved it, I am in desperate need of Vengeful now.
King of Fools
X How do I still not know what is happening with Levi and Ennie?! Urg, I disappoint myself.
Let’s Compare Notes
So there you have it! My somewhat successful, because we’re being optimistic here and I got 6/10 which is a solid 2:1 at university, summer tbr results. Have you read any of these books? Any on your tbr as well? Have a Top Ten Tuesday that’s vaguely about numbers? Would love to hear from you, either way, in the comments!
