The Queen's Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner

I'm going to skip my usual monthly books review, and dedicate an entire post to my favourite series, The Queen's Thief by Megan Whalen Turner. The last book, Return of the Thief, came out last Tuesday, and it took me a record of 1.5 days to finish it.

The Fifth Season and Other August 2020 Reads

I spent much of this month feeling like I was in a book slump, so it's a little surprising to see that I managed to finish 5 books. But I think the slumpy feel was due to the fact that, with the exception of Toy Box, I wasn't really into any of the books I read.

A Pocket Full of Murder and Other July 2020 Reads

I started July with some heavy nonfiction books, but partway through, I picked up some middle-grade novels for levity. These were the ones I ended up finishing within the month.

Deeplight and Other June 2020 Reads

It was crunch time at work last month, so most of the reading I did were lighter -- I stuck mostly to manga.

The Wizard of Earthsea and Other May 2020 Reads

I forgot to write this post at the beginning of the month, but better late than never, right?

The Magic Thief and Other March & April 2020 Reads

I realized that I didn't do a book review for the month of March. It was just so crazy last month, I think we can all agree on that. I haven't been able to keep up the reading pace I had set at the beginning of the year, unfortunately. With all that's going on, I haven't had a lot of reading mojo, but I do hope that I will soon find the right book that will push me out of my slump and help me through these uncertain times.

Storm from the East and Other February 2020 Reads

I'm sad to say I didn't finish any books in February. Rather shocking to me too, since I breezed through so many the month before. But here are the books I'm still working my way through.

January 2020 Reads

To start off the New Year, I picked up The Vengekeep Prophecies by Brian Farrey. I thought it had some very smart twists and great world-building. I warmed up to the Grimjinx family instantly, and I was a little disappointed that for most of the book, we don't actually get to see them operate as a team.

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.

Draft 5: Week 2 Update and Some Books I'm Reading

I really wish I had something significant to put on this update, but believe it or not, I managed to finish reading 2 whole books this week, which didn't leave much for writing.
