I don’t know how I came across this book, but being a mood reader my brain tells me when I’m ready to read a book. For some reason, I wanted to read this book so I borrowed it from the library. It immediately downloaded to my kindle and I couldn’t put it down until I was done.
So I decided I was only going to read the first three books from The Selection series. I heard that the rest aren’t so great and I also want to move on to other books in my TBR. Not a lot to report here, but I’ll share the details with you below.
A couple of weeks ago, I pictured a dogeared page on my Bookstagram and people were up in arms. I got a few responses from folks who (with figurative tears in their eyes) were upset with me for folding over the page of a book.
To me, this doesn’t seem like an offense. I’ve done many things to books that people in the reading world should never hear about. I won’t say what because it’s pretty gruesome and I now have books in little plastic baggies because of it.
I’ve been making strides on reading from my TBR list than going to the library or the bookstore. However after reading this particular one (and the first of a series), I might have borrowed the rest of the series from the library and plan on reading it in the next few days.
August always feels like that throwaway month. It’s the month before school starts and as much fun as you’re having, there’s that little thing egging at you that summer is almost over. I hate that feeling and I’m an adult!
But I’m going to be honest, I’ve got a lot going on this month. I have a big move and packing and for some reason all the books I’ve collected feel like they’re closing in on me. It’s getting kind of claustrophobic in here.
So I might not be picking up any books this month from publishers. However, this month has got some treats for you if you’re interested! Definitely check these books out coming out in August.
I’ve decided to make The Mortal Instruments my next big fantasy series to read. Aside from the rereads that I’m doing for A Court of Thorns and Roses and finishing up The Lunar Chronicles. Of course I need more books to read and confuse myself with.
I can’t believe July is already over. It’s already over! Well, today is the last day, but it feels like it’s already over.
