May Reading Progress

May 2016 Books
I actually had not expected to read nearly this many books this month! But I suppose most of these are shorter, and especially in the case of the Patrick Ness book, very quick reads. Anyway, coming up in June: probably a lot more books! I'll be on holidays for the second half of June, so I'm hoping to get through a whole stack if possible. Which will hopefully include a lot of sequels (Wheel of Time, Chaos Walking, Seven Realms & possibly Throne of Glass even if I didn't enjoy the first one, apparently the sequel is better)

  • The Princess Heir (The Seven Realms #2) - Cinda Williams Chima
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) - Patrick Ness
  • The Fires of Heaven (The Wheel of Time #5) - Robert Jordan
  • Troll Mountain - Matthew Reilly 
  • Sorcerer to the Crown - Zen Cho

Currently Reading:
The Gray Wolf Throne (The Seven Realms #3) - Cinda Williams Chima

March Reading Progress

Mar 2016 books
Clearly there's a lot less books this time around. That's because my university semester started up again, giving me a lot less time for reading. And I got distracted from WoT #4.. a lot... yeah, sorry about that I promise I'll finish some time next month!

  • James and the Giant Peach - Roald Dahl
  • To Hold the Bridge - Garth Nix
  • The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

Favourite (and Least Favourite) Pokemon

My favourites here are chosen based on how much I liked using them in-game, whether I liked their look (yes I like cute pokes like cyndaquil sorry not sorry), how badass they are, and I attempted to not just load up on legendaries everywhere.
Least favourite chosen based on anything from being annoying as all hell in-game to ridiculously useless &/or stupid looking. That's about that.

Okay so I guess I have to admit I pretty much skipped the games for Gen 4 & 5. Also 3 is still my favourite, love the ORAS remakes!
