What I Read

What I’ve read lately (August-October 2016)

I have a terrible confession to make: I’ve barely read anything for the past several months. It’s partly because I was busy with other activities, and it’s partly because I ran into a slew of real stinkers of books that I just couldn’t bear to finish. I suppose it doesn’t help that I finished reading Dark Matter back in July and promptly fell into a semi-book-depression because nothing seemed nearly as good in comparison.

But I digress! I did manage to finish five books over the past three months and DNF’d two others. (I’m still struggling to read several other books as well that are just not progressing at all.) Here’s what I’ve read lately, along with mini-reviews. For longer reviews, hop over to my Goodreads page, and don’t forget to friend me while you’re there!

What I read: June 2016

I almost managed to go through thirteen books this month, but a couple of DNFs threw me off. Nonetheless, I still had a couple of (surprisingly) good titles. A bit belated, here’s everything I read in the month of June!

What I read: May 2016

May 2016 was a very mixed month for me, book-wise: I had everything from DNFs and one-star books to some really great, thick thrillers. I do think I should get a prize for only setting aside one book as a DNF this month (yay!) though I was very tempted with a couple of other titles! Read on for mini-reviews and don’t forget to look me up on Goodreads!

What I read: February 2016

What I read in February 2016

After a few book-light months, I ended up reading a ton in February. Unfortunately it was a mixed bag and included a few DNFs, but overall it was still a much better month than January, December or November. Here’s the good, the bad and the meh of what I read in February 2016. If you want more reviews and bookish chatter, make sure to look me up on Goodreads! I always love making new bookish friends. :)

What I read: October 2015

I was kind of surprised to look back and see how many books I read last month! I had a few good picks but for the most part it was a really “meh” month. Here’s what I loved, liked, and didn’t click with.

The great (four and five stars)

What I read: October 2015: four stars or more (more…)

What I Read: September 2015

September was kind of a mediocre reading month for me. I had two great reads and everything else was kind of middling! I find it interesting that the bulk of my three-star reads were New York Times bestselling books or authors. I even had a couple of back-to-back DNFs. Read on for all the mini reviews and don’t forget to friend me on Goodreads!

What I Read: August 2015

Yay, I’m back to doing my monthly roundups! My reading was pretty hit and miss through spring and summer, with a lot of DNFs and very few books in July, thanks to packing up and moving. But I got back on track last month and really want to get back in the habit of doing these monthly roundups! (If you’re curious about other books I’ve read this year, you can check out my page on Goodreads. I’ve also posted lengthier reviews of most of the books below, if you’re curious.) Now, on to the roundup!
