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

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.

Book Review (January 2017)

Book Review (January 2017)

The first month of 2017 is already over, which means it’s time to talk you through the books I read last month. I did a good job and read 5 books this month. I decided to not only delve into some fiction, but also picked up two non-fiction reads and am currently 1 – 2 books ahead of schedule for my Goodreads Reading Challenge. In short, it was a good reading month, despite the busy times and piles of grading. Here’s what I read in the month of January.

Book Review (December 2016)

Book Review (December 2016)

I know, I know: 2017 is already well under way, but I have one last post for you to wrap up 2016. I hadn’t gotten round to reviewing the book I read in the last month of the year just yet. I read a total of 6 books. One of them being the worst reads of the year and one quite possibly having been the best. So it was a month with ups and downs. It was the month in which I finished my Goodreads reading challenge and I managed to tag on 2 other books at the end, making a grant total of 52 books read in 2016. For 2017 I hope to do the same, so feel free to join me over on Goodreads.

Book review (November 2016)

Happy December! I know it’s only the very beginning of the month, but because November has been an excellent reading month for me, I decided to post my round up of the books I read last month asap. I already mentioned once before that fall is one of my favorite seasons to read, so I got a lot of titles off my shelves. I stuck to mostly smaller books to ensure I would catch up with my reading challenge. And I have! I am currently 2 books ahead and have finished 47 books so far. There was one other book I finished last month, but I hadn’t started it yet when I took these pictures over the weekend, so I will loop that in with the December overview instead. Here’s what I read in November.

R.L. Stevenson - Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Henry James - The Turn of the Screw J.K. Rowling - Hogwart's Library: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them & Quidditch through the Ages J.K. Rowling - The Tales of Beedle the Bard Jonathan Stroud - Lockwood & Co: The Hollow Boy Stephenie Meyer - The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
