Book Review | October 2017

October wasn’t much of a reading month for me. October was all about the move and DIYing. So I saw more paint brushes, hammers and nails than I did books. But near the end of the month, after the move had been completed, I was able to squeeze in a little bit of reading. So I don’t have much for you this time, but there is something there.  book review oktober 2017

Book review | September 2017

September wasn’t a great reading month for me. I only read 3 books. I had a lot of teaching to do and I felt knackered after those days. The fact that the books I read were so-so and not the more engaging stories ever, also make it harder to read more. So this was a mediocre reading month with mediocre books, but I’m going to share them with you nonetheless.  book review september 2017

Book review| July 2017

July is gone and so are 5 books that I read this past month. Yes, 5 book. Despite the first two weeks of the month being quite hectic, I ended up making up during the later weeks of the month because a) I have a week of vacation and b) I feel well-rested and energized which makes me want to read. Here’s the 5 books I read in July.  book review july 2017

Cassandra Clare – Lord of Shadows (Dark Artifices #2)
E. Lockhart – We Were Liars
Jim Butcher – Storm Front (Dresden Files #1)
Steven Hall – The Raw Shark Texts
Rachel Joyce – The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Book review | June 2017

Almost half way through July, but better late than never: here is my June book review. I read another 4 books last month, which seems to be my average. So far I’ve read 26 books this year, which means I’m still right on track for completing my reading goal for this year. Last year around this time, I was doing a lot worse and summer vacation is almost near, so I hope to be reading some more and get ahead of the schedule again.

Book review | May 2017

May was another good reading month. I finished my 4th and final book of the month pretty much on the dot right on the 31st. And yes, I say 4, because I did read 4 books, but the 4th physical copy of the first book I read last month is now lent out. But that doesn’t mean I can’t review it of course!

Book review | April 2017

Apologies for this blog post going up so late, but I’ve been a little jetlagged so my schedule has gone completely haywire. I still wanted to get this post up though, so better late than never. I read 4 books in the month of April and am still making good on that Goodreads goal of reading 50 books in 2017. In fact, I am still 2 book ahead of schedule. Woohoo! Here’s what I read in April.

February 2017 book review

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, I still managed to finish roughly a book per week. I did cheat a little as one of these books I finished just last Sunday, but I didn’t want to wait with reviewing it until next month as it was my favorite read this month. Here’s what I read in February.
