Monthy Wrap-Up: April 2017

When it comes to reading, this month started great and ended great – but there were some bad books in between. I read 10 book this month, which is less than I wanted to. I’ve been reading less this year, I get too distracted with other stuff and this needs to change.

So, the books I read in April are:

The best books I’ve read this month are The Elon Musk Blog Series – a great explanation of everything Elon Musk’s companies are doing and The Giver – I read this for the 24 hour readathon and it’s the book that ‘saved’ this readathon for me. I’m gonna read the rest of the series asap.

There was only one more 5 star book his month and that was Generation Kill – but it doesn’t seem right to say that I’ve enjoyed it. But it’s quite harsh and honest and that’s what makes it great.

I didn’t give any 1 star ratings this month but there were two books were VERY close to that: Forever and After the War is Over. I thought they were both really badly written and very dissppointing. Ugh, I hate wasting time on bad books.

This month, I wrote a Poetry Post and a Book Slice post. Those will become regular posts on my blog, I wanna share the poetry I love and talk about certain parts of books, be it a chapter, a paragraph or just one line.

In happy news: SKAM IS BACK!!!

But it’s the last season 😦

Still, this is the first time I’m watching it ‘in real time’, and waiting for the next update is killing me. Does anyone else think it would be amazing if Skam continued as a book series? I’m gonna miss the girl squad when the show ends.

Monthly Wrap-Up Post: February 2017

I read 8 books this month but I only wrote two blog posts. I have lots of ideas for blog posts but I can’t make myself actually write them. Maybe next month will be better.

The books I read in February are:

The best ones are The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, The Circle and Elon Musk’s biography.

The Circle is going to be a movie, with Emma Watson and John Boyega:

Can’t wait!

Currently reading:

  • The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough – I watched the show when I was a kid but don’t remember much of it
  • Howard Hughes: His Life and Madness – I saw the movie The Aviator recently and I wanted to find out more about Howard Hughes. The book is interesting but I’m reading it slowly.
  • Little Kids and Their Big Dogs – photography book. I got this on Netgalley, it’s a really quick read, obviously, but it’s really cute

I went on a Netgalley binge yesterday and requested a lot of books. Hopefuly  won’t get approved for more than I can handle.

Last month I finally gave in and watched Skam. It’s been everywhere online in the last few months so I had to see what the fuss was about. The show is really good and now I just wanna know who the fourth season will be about. I know a lot of people are rooting for Even, but I would prefer it if the show had a female main character again, cause I love the friendship between the girls in the first two seasons.
