Can someone please give me June’s number? I need to ask where it ran off too!!
So in other words, I submitted the first draft of my dissertation yesterday (Whoop!). I mean, I may have been about 2000 words over the limit but its just a draft, I’ve got two months for editing. Last month was CRAZY busy. I mean, dissertation ramped up, I moved and I’ve had job interviews (but no jobs yet). I did manage to read five books this month alongside all of this, so, here is my monthly wrap up!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Kaz, criminal prodigy in the city of Ketterdam. When he is offered the heist of a lifetime, Kaz assembles six of the most dangerous criminals in the city. It could be ludicrous. If they don’t kill each other first.
I absolutely adored this book. It was dangerous and the characters were sassy and I adored them.
CROOKED KINGDOMS by Leigh Bardugo
Kaz and the crew are back in Ketterdam along with some additional extras. They’re up against the clock and in order to succeed, they’re going to need to use all their strengths and maybe even a few weaknesses.
Again, as much as I loved the first book in the duology, this conclusion was just as awesome.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Offred is a Handmaid in the house of a Commander of Gilead in a world where the population levels have fallen.
Re-read but it was as amazing as always
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Todd Hewitt lives in Prentisstown, where there are only men and their Noise, waiting to turn 13 and become a Man. Todd doesn’t fit into their plan though, and after he encounters Silence in the swamp, he is forced to fun and question everything he knows.
Incredible, lots of dark themes and its written in voice which is always fun.
Geek Girl by Holly Smale
Holly is a geek. Then she is spotted by a modelling company and decides to try and make people like her.
Bad rip off of the Princess Diaries. Don’t bother.
