So, this was a bit of a shot month, looking back at how much I actually managed to read. And I don't think I set goals to high, either. I had five books I wanted to read, and I only got through two of them.
The first book I had planned to read was Sword of Shannara but I only got 230 pages into it. I don't want to call this one a DNF yet, because I still want to try and finish it. I think it may end up sitting for a while, but hopefully I just wasn't in the mood for it. One thing that was really bothering me as I read it was the lack of female characters. I don't think, up until the point I had got, one had even been mentioned and that was killing me a bit.
Then I wanted to read Dawn of the Jedi, but decided to push it off in favor of another fantasy book, to try and redeem the genre for me. So I skipped down to Way of Shadows, a book my roommate has been begging me to read for ages now. I managed to finish this one, but not until the 25th. It took me some time to read, and I'm honestly not sure why, since I ended up really enjoying it. My review for this one will be published this Friday.
I was afraid I wouldn't have time to finish any other books this month, but, less than an hour ago, I managed to finish Dead Man's Drive, a book I received for review from the publisher. I liked this one, it was a good urban fantasy for some light reading. I still haven't written the review, but I do plan to publish a review next Friday, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
I also started Cress the other day and am currently on page 230. So far, I absolutely love it! Why did I put this one off for so long??
I did do a lot of manga and graphic novel reading, though. I read the first volume of Guardians of the Galaxy, and the third volume of Hawkeye. I enjoyed them both, though neither received five stars. I also managed to read volumes 5, 6, and 7 of Noragami (all five stars) and am in the middle of volume 8. I still love this series dearly. The last manga I read was the first in a new series, Horimiya, wasn't something I would normally pick up but a friend recommended. And it was so good!
I did watch Jessica Jones in the span of two days, and my review of it will be going up tomorrow. I enjoyed it, just not as much as Daredevil. I also binged Blue Exorcist, which was so amazing I don't even have words for it. I have a review for that coming up in a few days as well.
So how much reading did you guys do this month? Did you watch Jessica Jones? Let me know in the comments!
