So it looks like I have been extremely rubbish with my book reviews this year, all the while I’ve been reading more than I did last year. I’m currently thinking of different ways I can review the books I read to make it easier on myself to review them and be able to look back and see what I enjoyed or did not enjoy. That is the main reason I like reviewing as it is a journal for me so that I can look back on things.
Strange Weather in Tokyo – This was a wild card for me and I enjoyed it in a weird way. It was an intriguing story and not one I would normally chose, but I liked the idea of reading something set in Japan when I’m going there later this year.
Dead Beat: The Dresden Files, Book Seven (The Dresden Files series 7) – This was another audiobook for me that moved the story along in the series with this time battling necromancers.
Proven Guilty: The Dresden Files, Book Eight (The Dresden Files series 8) – This was another audiobook in the series and I enjoyed it as it bought back in the White Council. Harry is assigned to investigate black magic and this gives some insight into his past.
Coffee Nerd: How to Have Your Coffee and Drink It Too – I’ve been reading up on making better coffee as this is a skill I want to improve upon. This gave me lots of information about the amount of water versus beans and brew time. I’m still experimenting but I like having this as reference.
The Lie Tree – This was a gift from my friend and I read it in one day. It was a good read; quick and easy, while engaging and entertaining.
White Night: The Dresden Files, Book Nine (The Dresden Files series 9) – Another one in the series and another engaging story.
Moranifesto – Loved this book. It was a great listen and one I want to get in paperback now so I can scribble in it and underline sentences to commit them to memory.
The Invisible Library (The Invisible Library series Book 1) – I decided to get this on the recommendation of my friend and really enjoyed it. I wish this was what it was really like to work in a library with multiple realities each with slightly different books and stories, but similar at the same time. I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses) – I really enjoyed the first one in the series and as expected I enjoyed this one as well. It’s a simple read, but engaging and intriguing all the way through. I liked the characters and the their development through the book. I love straight forward fantasy with fae and high lords and magic as it’s not reality at all. Plus you can look at all the fandoms and really get to understand the characters through different perspectives.
