So January was definitely not the most successful reading month for me! I got into a massive slump at the beginning of the month where I picked up and then put down about 4 books before finding anything I wanted to stick with!
As you saw from my last post (found here) I didn't do too badly with my 2018 goals, I smashed my Goodreads goal, I read a lot of amazing books, but now it is time to look to the New Year and make some new goals!
Firstly, I feel I need to say that this book has such an interesting and innovative concept, but it does require suspending your belief throughout reading this book! I do not know how to categorise this book, some combination of contemporary and sci-fi maybe? But either way it is fascinating and such an original way of representing the ideas and issues discussed in this book.
This hasn't been my most successful reading month sadly as I have been so busy with university deadlines and all sorts of other things such as rehearsals and dance competitions across the country! So as you can see, reading hasn't exactly been my top priority this month! I finished a total of 5 books this month, and am in the middle of 2 others!
Well, this month has been one of the best months for reading that I have ever had! It went very slightly downhill towards the end of the month as I went to Reading Festival for five days and as I was camping and very busy reading wasn't really on the agenda! But other than that it has gone very well and I have managed to read a total of 13 books!
So with it being the holiday I thought I was going to be able to read so much, and I did at the beginning of the month. By the 22nd I had read 6 books, and still had over a week left!
This year I was extraordinarily lucky and was able to go to YALC (a young adult book convention which is part of the London Film and Comic Con) and it was absolutely fantastic! I was able to go for the first two days, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th July, but could not attend the final day as I was at another event that day but even still it was one of the best events and weekends of my life!
I would like to thank Penguin Doubleday and specifically Thomas Hill for sending me a proof copy of this book, it was so exciting to receive and I loved reading it and am so excited to write this review! This book was marketed as a book for those who enjoyed The Circle and Black Mirror and they were so right, I love both of those and especially The Circle had a huge resemblance to this book!
Hi everyone! It has been far too long since I wrote anything on this blog, so I thought I would give you a little update on how I am, what I have been reading and what I have been up to. And there is definitely one update that is extremely exciting... I started a BookTube... Continue Reading →
