Spring 2018 Wrap-Up and One Sentence Reviews!
Let’s Get Personal For A Moment
I know, I know… I have been completely neglecting my blog lately!! Long story short, I’m in my last year of becoming an engineer and I had to finish my dissertation and of course I had a lot of bad luck and it was kind of a mess, but I made the deadline (I’m so relieved that date is finally in the past), thank God.
Look at that! So many pages of torture! After that came a lot of exams, and because of my bad dissertation luck I sadly had yet to start studying for all of that. It was a mess, but they are OVER. Hopefully I can graduate in September and then I’m officially an engineer, you guys!
I’m probably never going to do an engineering job because at the end of September I start with classes to become a teacher! I’m so looking forward to it!
I really really really missed the blog, but you have to believe me that I just had zero time left and I just had to take this break. I never really wanted to put a message out that I was taking a break from blogging, because every other blog I ever read that put a message like that on their blog, never returned. I really love doing this and I love reviewing books and I have so many blog ideas and I CAN’T WAIT TO START AGAIN.
One Sentence Reviews!
Enough of my complaining, about school, life and not having time! I did read some books and I can’t wait to do some one sentence reviews about them! I do still have to write reviews for most of them, I have so many unfinished review drafts ?.
I read a lot of great and fantastic books the last few months! Because I was so busy I just didn’t want to risk reading something I wasn’t going to like, so I mostly picked books that had gotten great reviews by reviewers I trust.
Olympian Challenger (Olympian Challenger #1) – Astrid Arditi: An amazing book that felt a bit like the more mature version of Percy Jackson, although the romance can just leave. (Review)
Educated – Tara Westover: This amazing book should be a mandatory read for everyone who takes education in Europe or the US for granted. (Review)
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians 2) -Rick Riordan: I really should have read these books as a child, they are so perfect!
How To Write A Love Story – Katy Cannon: Reading a book about writing a book messed with my head quite a bit, but it was such a cute story!
The Plastic Magician (The Paper Magician #4) – Charlie N. Holmberg: This book is seriously so much better than the original trilogy!
The Novice (Summoner #1) – Taran Matharu: I liked the first 80% after that some not so good things happened.
The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1): Such an amazing book, I love all the backstabbing so much, you’ll never see that ending coming!
Eldest (The Inheritance Cycle #2) – Christopher Paolini: I’ve read this series so many times, they will never get boring for me.
Scythe (Arc of a Scythe #1) – Neal Shusterman: My first Shusterman book ever and I was completely SOLD, so great!
Daughter of the Siren Queen (Daughter of the Pirate Lord #2) – Tricia Levenseller: I loved the first one better, it was a bit too monotone. (I’m adding this useless extra sentence because the name of this book is longer than my review and I wasn’t going to let that happen!)
A Court of Frost and Starlight (A court of Thorns and Roses #3.5) – Sarah J. Maas: This book really served its purpose, it was the great ending to the original trilogy that we didn’t get at the end of A Court of Wings and Ruin.
Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2) – Victoria Schwab: Damn, I really remember liking this book a lot, but I already forgot what happened… Woops!
The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood #1) – Melissa Albert: This book has many mixed reviews, but I really liked it, I would love to learn more about many of the other characters.
Thunder Head (Arc of a Scythe #2) – Neal Shusterman: That ending KILLED me, can’t wait for the next one!
The Belles (The Belles #1) – Dhonielle Clayton: I liked this one, but I felt like the story still has to take of for real.
To Kill A Kingdom – Alexandra Christo: The world building in this one was amazing and seldom seen, so great, I still hope this isn’t going to be a stand alone after all!
A Thousand Perfect Notes – C.G. Drews: I loved this book so much, I finished it in no time, THANK YOU CAIT!
One Fell Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #3) – Ilona Andrews: Howly moly, this book was sooo great, that ending transported this book right on to my all time favourites shelf!
Iron and Magic (The Iron Covenant #1) – Ilona Andrews: I’m so boring when I talk about Ilona Andrews, because I just love them all!
That was it for my spring one sentence reviews! I hope you liked it!!!
Next week I’ll be doing a list of my favourite books out of the first six months of this year!
