Things I’ve discovered over the past week, 1) it is really hard to stick to a reading list, 2) when I live on my own, I’ll probably become a vegetarian because I don’t want to buy expensive meat, and 3) the month of May has flown by and seems never-ending. Here’s how my reading has fared over the past week:
Since listening to Artemis Fowl last week, I decided to move on to the second in the series, The Arctic Incident. Since last week I’ve read one chapter of Misguided Angel, and none of To Kill A Mockingbird. I’ll get to them eventually, it’s just that other books keep distracting me.
I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The Unlikely Lady by Valerie Bowman
The Queen by Kiera Cass
Spiral: The Bonds of Reasoning, Vol 1-3 by Kyo Shirodaira
I’m glad I was finally able to finish I Am Malala (as it was on my currently reading list for over a year). It was quite an inspiring and emotional memoir. Last week I was browsing through my library’s available audiobook downloads and I came across Twilight, as I hadn’t read the book since freshman year, I decided to give it another go. There is no doubt that tastes change as you age, the story was completely shallow. How can you possibly be in love after one date? The Unlikely Lady is a wonderful tale in the playful brides series that I enjoyed. The Queen, a Selection series novella, was also available through my library’s audiobook downloads, so I gave it ago. I really liked getting Queen Amberley’s selection story. When browsing my local library’s physical shelves I found the manga Spiral:The Bonds of Reasoning. It wasn’t bad, but it was excessively confusing. I’m going to keep on reading it (as long as I can interlibrary loan it) just so that it can hopefully clear up my confusion. Reviews of Spiral: The Bonds of Reasoning, The Unlikely Lady, and I Am Malala are scheduled to post next month.
Ruby by Cynthia Bond
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Artemis Fowl The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer
Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy-ish Steps by Kelly Williams Brown
Ruby will be read…eventually. I want to read it, but also other books that I know I love keep getting in the way. Besides that soon I plan on listing to the New Moon audiobook when it’s available for download, and then once I finish The Arctic Incident I’ll move on to The Eternity Code, the third Artemis Fowl book. Lastly, I was reading through a blog post posted by buzzfeed titled “47 Books Every College Grad Should Read” and came across Adulting:… so I’ve requested it from my library and plan to pick it up soon.
