Recap September 2017
In Recap I will tell you guys what I read this month and how far I am with my Goodreads Reading Challenge.
I had my holiday this month, but I actually did not read much more than normally due me wanting to focus on spending the time with the people around me. I enjoyed the two weeks of peace and quiet a lot. I also listened to a lot of writing videos and liked them a lot.
I went to shop in The Hague and found The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo over a week before the release that, so I bought it and read it the same evening still. It was so amazing, my review is already up. Check for the link down below. I was so happy about this find.
This was the first month of a book club I joined recently and we read In The Light of What We Know by Zia Haider Rahman. I did not like it that much and due to the flu I even did not get to discuss it in the group.
Further more I read The Heir by Kiera Cass, The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, The Jewel by Amy Ewing, The Calling by Cate Tiernan, Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor, Red Rising by Pierce Brown and as mentioned before I read The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo.
Goodread Reading Challenge
All in all these books bring me to a total of 114 stories this year, of which quite a bunch of short stories and I am planning to read even more. I actually like them because they take about an hour to finish and because of it do not take up much of my time.
I am starting to listen more and more audiobooks, because I really like them and I can just play them while doing other things, like disher, other chores or gaming.
I am still hoping to finish The Selection series by Kiera Cass this year and maybe even the first trilogy of the Red Rising Saga by Pierce Brown. Only need to finish 2 books of each of these and I sort of enjoy them both a lot (although I found reading The Heir very hard because I just did not like the main character.
