Blog Update #8

Hello. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted so I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about this blog. Some stuff has happened in my life and I’ve had a lot to deal with so I kind of lost track of everything. I will be coming back to this blog soon but I just needed a bit of a break, eventually everything should return to normal though.  Until then posting may be a bit irregular so I hope you all bear with me. Thank you for reading! 🙂

Blog Update/Currently Reading #7

Just a quick update to say sorry for the impromptu hiatus! I don’t really know how it’s already been a month since my last post and I’m really sorry about that. I’ve been ill for a while and generally just procrastinating getting things done but I’m going to try to update more often from now. Both my April Wrap Up and Monthly Book Haul should be up soon and then hopefully I’ll be able to post some reviews of some books I’ve been sent.

I’m currently reading Me Before You and I’m about halfway through. So far I’m actually really enjoying it, far more than I expected to and I can’t wait to go see the film in cinema once I’ve finished it. I can’t wait to see what happens with Louisa and Will though I do have my suspicions! Anyway, thanks for reading and as I said before you can expect more regular posting in the future. 🙂

 

Blog Update/Currently Reading 

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week or two! I haven’t had the chance to write any posts because my laptop charger has disappeared so I’m having to use the WordPress app for now and it’s not very easy to use. 

Since I haven’t really been able to write I’ve been doing more reading, I’m currently reading Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb and I’m enjoying it so far. I also just finished Nimona by Noelle Stevenson which I absolutely loved so all in all I’m doing pretty well on my November TBR. Anyway hopefully I’ll have some reviews up soon as I’m hoping to get a new charger soon. Thanks for reading! 🙂

I’m really sorry for the long absence, it’s been a bit hectic with exams and other stuff but since that’s all over now I can hopefully start posting regularly again. I haven’t been reading much because of all the stuff that’s been going on but I’m currently halfway through If You Go Away by Adele Parks. I’m really liking it so once I’ve finished I’ll post a full review!

Anyway I just wanted to update my blog since it’s technically the 1 Year Anniversary of the date I made Read Rant Review so thanks for sticking with me! I may be doing a giveaway soon so be sure to look out for that. I’ll definitely be posting more varied content soon as well! 🙂

Sorry for the absence! It was my birthday yesterday so I was a bit busy during the week with bits and bobs so I’ll hopefully be posting some reviews soon now that everything’s done. I figured I’d give you a little reading update because weirdly I’ve been reading a lot more recently even though I’ve been busier.

Girls Will Be GirlsI’m currently reading Girls Will be Girls: Dressing Up, Playing Parts and Daring to Act Differently by Emer O’Toole which I won in a Goodreads giveaway. It’s a non fiction memoir sort of book about one woman’s experience with gender and feminism throughout her life. I haven’t read much yet but from what I have read it’s really interesting. I’m still 8 books behind on my 100 books Goodreads challenge so I’ve been doing my best to catch up so after Girls Will Be Girls  I’ll probably read Saga V3 because I know I’ll fly through it.

I’m hopefully going to be posting my review of Those Above by Daniel Polansky very soon because I’ve been meaning to for ages. Let me know in the comments what you’ve been reading! 🙂

I’m sorry for the brief absence! I had a big essay to hand in for my coursework so now that I’ve done that I can hopefully start blogging regularly again. I figured I’d give you a little update on what I’ve been reading so here you go!

Winter SIegeI recently finished Winter Siege by Ariana Franklin and Samantha Norman which I gave 4.5 stars. It’s set in 12th century England in the midst of the civil war between Queen Matilda and King Stephen. It’s told from a variety of perspectives of people who are dragged into this war and how they’re all connected. I’m going to post a review very soon but it was a lovely historical fiction and I hope to read more of Ariana Franklin’s older works.

Finn Fancy NecromancyI’m currently reading Finn Fancy Necromancy by Randy Henderson. It’s an urban fantasy about a boy who was exiled to the Other Realm for 25 years and returns to find out that the people who framed him in the first place are trying to get him exiled again. Not only that but he also has to deal with how much the world has changed in his absence and the people his family have become. It’s really interesting so far and I love the magic system ! I’ve nearly finished and I can’t wait to see how it ends.

The ThreeI’ve also started The Three by Sarah Lotz which I received this morning in the post from Hodder. I’ve only read a few chapters but it’s really intriguing and I hope to finish it soon because I can’t imagine where the story is going to go. It’s about a day called Black Thursday where four passenger planes all crashed simultaneously around the world and only three children survived. Before another passenger dies from injuries she obtains in the crash she leaves a disturbing message that is supposed to change the world. From what I’ve read it’s sort of a book within a book as it has different interviews and extracts from people who were there on Black Thursday which I really like. It’s so compelling and I keep having to stop myself from picking it up when I’m supposed to be doing school work! I’ll post a review once I’ve finished.

What are you currently reading? Let me know down in the comments! 🙂

I finished Red Rising last night so I’m now reading Lips Touch by Laini Taylor. I haven’t read a lot of short stories before, especially fantasy ones so I’m really excited to read this. Also, it has illustrations that are absolutely beautiful and they really add to the overall atmosphere of the book. I’ll post a review when I’m finished! Feel free to let me know in the comments what you’re currently reading. 🙂
