I have gotten a whole lot of nothing done, reading-wise within the last two months. 🤦🏻♀️
I keep looking at my bookcases, which are filled with unread books that have been sitting patiently for me to read them for ages at this point and now I am feeling the crushing weight of them… Which you would think would get my butt in gear to read them but no.
Of course, instead, I can’t pick up a book to save my life. I have read one here or there recently but they’ve been taking me sometimes weeks to get through.
So without further ado, let’s get into the mess that has been my reading for the last two months.
My February TBR was quite long going by my standards but I figured since several were graphic novels and I was on a roll!
Then things quickly went south and not long after that I took a month off from the book world, and reading for the most part as well.*
Somehow I did manage to read every single book on my TBR except one
because the world hates me right now…
It just took me all of March as well. Oops.
I think that can still count that as a win though since I did take a whole month off during that time
so really it was a month’s worth of reading, it just wasn’t during the month I planned for it.
Ya girl is still 17 books ahead of schedule and… how??? I really was on a roll in January!
I’m going to do a quick breakdown of what I read, how I did, and what I thought!
*I did a whole post about it, you can find it here.
│Saga Vol 5│✔│Brian K. Vaughan││
│Saga Vol 6│✔│Brian K. Vaughan│
│The Radical Element│✔│Jessica Spotswood│★★★★│
This was such an incredible collection of stories! It was so strong in what it was trying to say as a whole, and with each individual story as well. ✨
│Miss Mayhem│✔│Rebel Belle #2│Rachel Hawkins│3.5★s│
│Lady Renegades│✔│Rebel Belle #3│Rachel Hawkins│★★★★│
I did really enjoy this series, it was fun, light, and not really what I was expecting. 🎆
│Riot Days│✔│Maria Alyokhina│★★★│
I do wish I had enjoyed this one more as the message is an important one, I just really struggled with the writing and format. 😬
│GIRL: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being You│✔│Karen Rayne│★★★★│
An important resource for young people, regardless of gender identity in my opinion. Also just a great read for older people who wanna learn more about the ever-evolving thing called sex ed.
I’m sure they’re out there somewhere. 👩🏻🏫
│Rat Queens Vol 3│✔│Kurtis J. Wiebe│★★★★│
Again, I really loved this one but it didn’t quite live up to the volumes that came before it and I’m dreading picking up the fourth volume as I’ve heard it’s not as good as the rest of the series. 😕
│Suicide Squad 3│✔│Rob Williams│★★│
I don’t know why I keep doing this to myself. I have well and truly given up on the Suicide Squad now.
At this point, my word means shit all though. 🙃
│Thief’s Cunning│✔│Sarah Ahiers│3.5★s│
I was initially surprised where this actually picked up since the last book (not in fact right after but over 15 years later) but once I got passed that I did quite enjoy this one, it just wasn’t incredible for me. 🙂
│Appetite│✔│Anita Cassidy│★ DNF│
I couldn’t connect with the characters other than David, but there was some really brutal fatphobia so it was a struggle to read on that alone. It just was very dry and boring as well. 😓
│A Court of Wings and Ruin│X│ACOTAR #3│Sarah J. Maas│
I was really trying to get to this one soon since my memory is shocking and it’s been a while already since I read the first two. I think I might just have to resign myself to read the series from the start again because I’ve forgotten so much already…
I’m not really looking forward to reading A Court of Thorns and Roses again…* 😣
*I just really hated it I’m
Seeing just how little I read makes me sad. I just can’t seem to get out of this bloody slump no matter how good the book is.
I’m currently reading A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and I absolutely love it!
I know I’m not just trying to convince myself of this either because I have used so many tabs and highlighted so many quotes so far.
I just can’t seem to make myself pick it up very often and when I do, I always do it right before I have to do something else so, I’m cramming in a chapter or two every couple of days.
I have no idea what is wrong with me or how to fix it! Someone help me!
I hope y’all appreciate the playing around with font sizes that I have done
guys it was really hard, even with May’s super great step by step, I’m just a dumb-dumb honestly.
What did you read during February or March?
How do you get out of a reading slump?
No seriously, I really do need help.
