Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine has been pretty chill. Today is my best friend’s birthday so I’m excited for that! I’ve seen a few people do this post and I loved it. It’s short and sweet and it’s nice for me to go back and think back about what I’ve read so far but it’s also a bit of a challenge which I like. I’m just going to go in chronological order. If I’ve written a full review on the book I’ll link it too. I’ve not read too much this year so it shouldn’t be too long of a post so I’ll stop rambling and just get on with things.
Technically You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson
Such an ingenious and adorable plot wrapped up in a really interesting writing style that makes it even more brilliant.
Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus
A great Greek drama that so interesting to read, a must read.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
A classic that just didn’t do it for me, so dull.
Paradise Lost by John Milton
Another classic that I would have skipped if I had the choice.
Renaissance Women Poets by Isabella Whitney
Interesting points throughout but overall rather dull
Quicksand by Nella Larsen
A meh read with dull characters and an uninteresting plot.
The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G Wells
An amazing read with some really interesting views on life with fun characters and gripping plot.
The Quarry Wood by Nan Shephard
Another read that didn’t do it for me; really lacking in everything that grips a reader.
The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter
A fun and quirky with a dark twist on classic fairy tales.
Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter
A hillarious, girly and seriously gripping adventure that constantly keeps you guessing.
Shaken by Joss Stirling
Another truly brilliant spy romance that was unputdownable!
Guarding the Broken (Nothing Left to Lose #1) by Kirsty Moseley
Beautifully written combination of shocking events and flirty banter, just pure brilliance!
Heartbreaking, hard-hitting but overall and incredibly love story that I can reread over and over again.
Man Crush Monday by Kirsty Moseley
An amazingly hilarious read with incredible characters and a surprising plot.
The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen
Very slow to start and a bit of an info dump, but got progressively better as it went on.
That’s all I’ve read this year so far. This was a super fun post that you should definitely give a go if you haven’t. I hope you have a great day and see you tomorrow.
