We Have Always Lived in the Castle and Other Books I've Read Recently

I can't seem to read steadily lately. Either I will gobble up a bunch of books one after the other, or I will have long stretches of reading slump.

September 2018 Reads

I didn't do very well this month. I thought I was going to be on a roll, considering the momentum I built up in August, but events from real life interfered quite a bit. I ended up only finishing one book.

To Say Nothing of the Dog and Other August 2018 Reads

And it's time for my monthly reading recap! I'm proud to say I did well this August. At the beginning of the month, I was 4 books behind my Goodreads reading challenge, and now I'm one book ahead. To be fair, two of these "books" were comic volumes, but hey, visual novels still count!

On finally finishing The Way of Kings, working through a Schoolism course, and passing my driver's exam.

Six of Crows and Other September 2017 Reads

Wow, I read 6 books last month; that's a record! I'm notorious for being a slow reader, but I managed to blow through 4 large books and 2 smaller ones.

I really regret it, because this book is amazing!

A Conspiracy of Kings and other 2017 May Reads

In an effort to liven up this blog from my incessant writing woes posts, I'm going to talk about some of the books I've read this month so far. If I read really quickly, I might even be able to read one more book before the month is over.

The Queen of Attolia and Other Books I've Read This Year So Far

My plan of writing book reviews regularly in the new year fell through. That's okay though, here's a combined post of everything I've read so far.

The Reader by Traci Chee

This book is quite meta-fictional. It's a book about books, about the power of books and the stories they tell. What if books are actually magical objects? And not just in the metaphorical sense?
