I’ve been wanting to do so many book posts lately, but each one was so short, so I just kind of piled them into this one kind of chatty post. I hope you don’t mind.
I’ve been in and out of a reading slump recently and it’s been pissing me off so much, so I’m going to be ranting about that and also talking about the book I’m currently reading. I also mention some books I’m obsessed with and TBRs that I want to get to.
If you want to share some of your book-related thoughts then please leave a comment down below!
My goal for this year is to finish the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, so I‘m currently reading the 4th book, The Battle of the Labyrinth.
I’m loving this series and I fly through these books so I’m pretty sure I’ll finish it with some time to spare.
I’m already 220 pages into it at the moment, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to finish it tonight, but I’m not sure if I’m going to pick up the last book, The Last Olympian, right after or wait a bit
And how are we liking the new style of photos? I was too lazy to get my actual camera out, so I put the book on my shelf and used my phone, and I’m actually not mad at it. I kind of like having the shelf in the background, so look out for more of those photos.
I’m sure a lot of you guys read the Percy Jackson series, so how did you like it? I think of it as this really fun and fast paced adventure story that’s really comforting to read. It’s almost like you’re actually there with these characters.
I also really enjoy the snarky comments and jokes that Rick puts into the books. I seriously don’t thin I’ve ever read a more sarcastic, sassy series in my life.
In the 4th book, we kind of get a bit of romance starting to bubble up between some of the characters. I’m not really sure how I feel about it, but I’m not mad you know. Kind of in the middle.
I also wanted to talk about this really annoyed ass reading slump that’s been haunting my goddamn existence lately.
I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this because it’s literally ruining my reading life now. I can pick up like 3 books and then I’ll just crawl my way through 2 and then read 4 and then stop reading. IT’S PISSING ME OFF!
But I think I know what really started this whole problem. Shatter Me.
I read the first book in March and kind of forgot about the series, but I picked up Unravel Me a couple weeks ago, and I devoured it. I mean I read it in one sitting and then immediately picked up Ignite Me.
Warner is mine. I just want to state that. I seriously am obsessed with this whole trilogy, The writing was so beautiful and ah, and the characters are really thought out.
I think that this series just burnt me out. It was so beautifully amazing that it just made everything look like shit compared to it. But I feel like I’m getting it over it.
Ugh, don’t even get me started on my TBR pile. I mean that thing is just growing and growing.
I think I’ll be getting to the Falling Kingdoms series after the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books are read.
I also want to get to Heartless by Marissa Meyer, because that just came out and I’m super excited to read it, but I just haven’t had the time.
The Throne of Glass series is also something I want to finish in the next year, but I’m not really in the mood for it at the moment.
And I still have the last 3 books in the Harry Potter series left, so I’m trying to work my way through that too.
That’s all I wanted to talk about today, I hope you enjoyed hearing me rant my little heart out. Till next time, goodbye!
Much love, Rawan ❤ …
