What a good month! I finished 5 books and all of them were great!!
We went to the cinema twice, to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and just last week to see John Wick: Chapter 2. Both were pretty awesome.
We officially have winter tomorrow and I am already over it. This is not what I signed up for! I thought it was always hot in Australia 😀 But no way.. Winter in Victoria is shorter, but just as bad as in Europe. Minus the snow. I just can’t stand it, if it’s getting dark at 4-5 in the afternoon. Also, I need sun or I get depressed.
I am already planning the next holiday. Bali? Fiji? Alice Springs? Just somewhere warm!
Here’s what I read:
Deadhouse Gates by Steven Erikson –> finished! Re-Read. Here are my Read Along Posts. I enjoyed this Re-Read a lot! It still is one of my all-time favourite series and I appreciate the size of it even more now. And the details. And the writing 😉 I will continue with it at some point this year.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by Joanne K. Rowling –> finished! Re-Read. It doesn’t matter how often I read the Potter books – I always love them! The first ones more than the last ones.
Misery by Stephen King –> finished! Started slow, but in the end I liked it more than I thought! My review.
Assassin’s Fate by Robin Hobb –> finished! It was everything I wanted! I hated and loved the ending at the same time. And I cried. It was perfect and brought everything together neatly. Review is coming
Retribution by Jennifer Fallon –> finished! Review is coming as well. Couldn’t stop reading! I finished it within 3 days or so, loved it even more than book 1. More scheming and my biggest fangirl wish was fulfilled. Now I have to wait another year for the next part.
The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan –> 27/679. I only read one chapter so far, so I won’t be able to say a lot. But I like it, the magic so far reminds me of burning metals in the Mistborn books.
A Cavern of Black Ice by J.V. Jones –> 142/804. Re-Read. Doesn’t really count because I only picked it up again yesterday and read maybe 1 or 2 pages 😀 I like it, but always felt like different books before.
Wit’ch Fire by James Clemens –> 16/100%. Re-Read. I wrote a post about it here and after that wanted to re-read.. I am re-reading a lot this year.
What I want to read in June
Apart from the books I started, I’d like to read
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by Joanne K. Rowling –> Sitting on my shelf, ready to go.
Medalon by Jennifer Fallon –> Again, this would be my 3rd or 4th Re-Read of this book. I love the Demon Child Trilogy so damn much and Retribution featured so many characters who appear in it as well. Need to get back to them!
Other than that, I haven’t made up my mind yet.
To wrap up my post, here’s Serj from System of a Down performing The Rains of Castamere from Game of Thrones
