August 2018

Uh, it’s almost not worth it to post a wrap up^^

I did finish exactly one book this month. One. And it was pretty short as well πŸ˜€

Here you go:

Dragonflight / Anne McCaffrey –> finished. ZeZee and I read it together but both ended up feeling rather ‘meh’ about it. I didn’t like the time-travel & teleportation and thought that the storyline was pretty weak, as well as the cast of characters. I will not return to Pern.

Spinning Silver / Naomi Novik –> 315/474. I will probably have to mark this as a disappointment. I still have a way to go, so we will see, but I was expecting much more from it. The characters let me down a little. Or more the fact that there were so many perspectives. Lots of them NOT necessary. Will go more in depth once I write a review.

The Traitor Baru Cormorant / Seth Dickinson –> 25%. This one I’m liking a lot! I will get back to it, once I am out of my reading & blogging slump.

The Grace of Kings / Ken Liu –> 7%. I got this because it was super cheap. Don’t like it so far, but will give it a chance. I am not very far in.

Well, that’s in! No plans on what to read next month. I hope I will feel more like it but if I don’t.. there’s nothing I can do.

I am still playing Breath of the Wild at the moment and want to start watching another anime soon, after finishing Yuri on Ice.

Oh, and I will have 2 weeks off soon. Expect me to post a lot more then. I realized I actually haven’t taken a holiday that was longer than a week in probably 4 years? And then only once or twice a year. I think this will be fun. I hope I won’t get bored haha.


  1. My advice would be to DNF both Novik and Liu. Move onto something you can enjoy more.

    I was also looking and realized you’ve hit the 2 year mark for blogging. I’m not surprised you’re hitting a wall then, as for some reason that is the most “popular” burnout time. If you can push through the next 4-6 months, you should be golden.

    1. I will dnf Liu. That just wasn’t it.. Novik I’m almost done with now.. ^^

      But then I will pick some books that are high om my list πŸ™‚

      Gosh, Has it been 2 years? Crazy, how time flies! I’m getting back into it though.. feel like being on wordpress more often, so that’s a good thing πŸ˜€

  2. Well, I love (many of) the Pern books, so I’m sad you were meh about it, but at least now you know what you think of it! It sounds like a meh crop of books on your August reading list, period. Here’s hoping for great September reads! And enjoy your upcoming vacation!
