Another month has passed us by and I still don’t know what I’m doing with my life. I hope that everyone is doing well. I know that I’m not doing as well as I would like to be but it’s okay. I just need to relax and remind myself that everything is going to be fine.
I graduated from university this month and within two weeks I’ve found a job. I’m a little nervous about starting this new job tomorrow but I’m hoping that things will go smoothly and I will be able to do a good job.
My reading this month was pretty great. I’m currently on track to complete my reading goal. I’m at 22/55 and it’s been nice. I read a pretty great variety of books this month and I enjoyed all of them a decent amount.
Dark Shores by Danielle L Jensen: ★★★★★
I absolutely loved this book. I found it amazing and incredible. I don’t know why more people aren’t talking about it. It has an amazing cast of characters as well as a riveting storyline with wonderful world building. It’s definitely become one of my favorite fantasy books. I’m currently reading the sequel as well
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E Schwab: ★★★★
I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a sweet book that explored life in a fascinating way. You can read my full review here.
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa: ★★★
This was a cute book. I found the writing interesting and the characters compelling. It’s not a favorite but definitely an enjoyable book and I hope to continue the series.
City of Brass by S.A Chakraborty: ★★★★
This was an incredibly compelling and intriguing book. The characters were amazing and even though they had differing viewpoints from one another I was still sympathetic to everyone and couldn’t just pick a side. I can’t wait to continue with the rest of the series.
The Poppy War by R.F Kuang: ★★★
Another intense book that left me reeling and really thinking about life and the world that we live in. I found the world building fascinating and done extremely well. The topics that the book deals with are very intense and are topics that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
I read a lot of intense books this month and I think that they may have put me in a little bit of a slump. I’m still listening to an audiobook and I hope that it will draw me out of my slump and make me excited to read more books.
