I got out of my reading slump! Woo! 🥳
I had a great reading week! I didn’t choose the best week to do the challenge because I had a lot of homework so I often ended up reading late but I really enjoyed taking the time to relax and taking time for myself. That’s what reading is about and I often tend to forget that. This week was a nice reminder;
Monday – March 22nd
Progress: I started my buddy read of A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire with my two friends and read 102 pages.
The week started so well! The story started to grow on me. I felt more connected to the characters and more interested by in the first book.
Tuesday – March 23rd
Progress: Continued reading A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire with my two friends and read until 201 pages.
I am LOVING Poppy and Hawke’s chemistry. It is no secret that I enjoyed the first book but was disappointed by the romantic aspect and especially Hawke. However I’m starting to really see why people like him so much; he’s going to become one of my book boyfriends 👀
Wednesday – March 24th
Progress: I had started You Should See Me In A Crown and stopped at 116 pages; I initially intended to read only 100 pages but I finished it!
This book. THIS BOOK. Definitely a new favourite! This book was what 16 year-old Karla wishes she had access too. I loved seeing Liz’s growth; seeing her becoming more confident in herself and her sexual orientation. I loved seeing the talk about grief, friendship, betrayal, race, wealth and love. I loved this book with my whole heart. The author’s note is really what made me cry at 3 AM and I have not regrets. Phew. The best. Stay tuned for a fuller review.
Thursday – March 25th
After my small stint and going to bed at 3AM, I couldn’t pick up a book the next day.
Friday – March 26th
Progress: I finally startds A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden and I read 50 pages of A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire.
The author approached me for a review of her book so I started it and really enjoyed the quick pace of the story.
Saturday – March 27th
Progress: I only read a little bit of A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden.
I didn’t read much; only 50 pages of the book. I was exhausted by the end of the week.
Sunday – March 28th
Progress: I continued A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden and made it halfway through! I read 60% of the book.
By this point in the book, I was very curious to see how it would end because so many things were happening
Monday – March 29th
Progress: I finished A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden and read a little over a 100 pages of A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire.
I finished A Touch of death! yay! The book was very promising and if you enjoy dystopias this novel is for you. Stay tuned for a full review! I am LOVING A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire! I’m 56% in and I can’t wait to see how it ends.
Overall this was a good week! I didn’t read as much as I had hoped but I did get out of my reading slump and that is a definite win! What did you read this week?
