Reading Plans For This Week

Now that my winter vacation has begun in earnest, I can now fully delve into my book binge for the next few weeks. When school isn’t going, I usually read up to 3 or 4 books within a week. I’ve got a lot of books on my December TBR (about 15) and so I’m gonna try my best to keep on track. However, I have a tendency to start reading random books, which I’ve already done.

As a reminder, here’s another glance at my December TBR:

 

Alright! What have we got for this week?


What I’ve Already Read

Cress

I’ve been having a hard time getting through Glass Sword (I started reading it about 2 weeks ago and I’m not even halfway done), and so I’ve determined that I might not like it that much. I’m not going to DNF it just yet, but I’m going to take a break from it. Over the weekend I read Cress and LOVED IT! So, I’ll be getting a review out for that sometime this week, along with The Rose Society!


What I’m Reading Now

 

I got home after school ended and remembered I had ordered Everything Everything on my Nook when it was on sale for $2. I’d been looking forward to reading it for the longest time, so I started reading it right after finishing up Cress. I guess I needed a contemporary book to take a break from the onslaught of fantasy books I’ve read in the past few months. I’m really enjoying the book so far, and I have a huge crush on Olly. So, everything’s working out.

I just started Blood and Starlight yesterday, and I have to say, I’ve fallen in love with it pretty quickly. I always thought Daughter of Smoke and Bone was a darkly enchanting YA fantasy but I’d forgotten just how enchanting it was. Laini Taylor’s imagery is flawless.


Possible Reads For Later This Week

I’m in love with my reading choices so far. I’l be trying to finish these two within the week. I’m not sure what I’ll read next, but I’ve got my eye on these two:

  1. Man, you get a lot of reading done! I’m super jealous.

    I’m especially looking forward to your thoughts on Nightshade, positive or negative. I read it when it was first published, and didn’t like it at all; it’s actually on my list of books to potentially reread for future snarking. Hopefully you enjoy it a lot more than I did!

    1. Haha, nothing to be jealous of. Sometimes reading so fast results in a loss of detail or memory. I’ve been trying to slow down and take some notes so I can remember later.

      I hope I like the Nightshade trilogy but I’m excited to read your snark-filled reviews if you do choose to reread the series! ❤

    1. Hahaha, I’m trying to binge as much as I can before I return to my prison that is college. And I enjoyed Everything, Everything well enough, but I didn’t love it either. I thought the ending was pretty rushed. I’m going to try to get a review out for that by tomorrow or Sunday! 😀

      1. It was VERY abrupt and unfortunately, a bit predictable. Placing the blame on someone else was definitely a cop-out and not very plausible, I thought. But I’m definitely looking forward to The Sun is Also a Star. I’ve heard great things about it so far! And thank you ❤

      2. Yeah, exactly! I kind of also feel like I’m more… curious, I suppose, to see how people with the actual disorder would realistically live, and I didn’t really get that from the book. It’s a missed opportunity imo. 🙂

      3. I definitely agree. The book had its strengths, particularly in Madeline’s personality, but I think there were a lot of weaknesses, too. I’m still glad I read it though! I like the author’s style so I’m looking forward to her new book 😀
