September Reading Progress

September 2016 books
I didn't realize that IT was such a long book, but it's taken me about half the month so far and I expect it will be another couple of days before I finish. I'm really enjoying it though.
Highlight of the month (as you can see) -A Monster Calls. Highly recommend. Young Adult fiction but with a really strong meaning behind it and some beautiful illustrations. Apparently it also might become a movie at some point in the near future!

  • Serpents and Werewolves: tales of animal shape-shifters from around the world - Lari Don
  • Legion: Skin Deep (Legion #2) - Brandon Sanderson
  • A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness
  • A Confusion of Princes - Garth Nix
  • The Chicken Thief - Fiona Leonard
  • The Path of Daggers (The Wheel of Time #8) - Robert Jordan

It - Stephen King

August Reading Progress

August 2016 Books
I'm kind of proud of myself for getting through so many books this month! It somewhat helped that the Crank series are actually deceivingly short books though (And seriously, there is no point going beyond the first in that particular series), and also I've gotten more used to my busy timetable and fitting everything into my days.


  • Crank (Crank #1) - Ellen Hopkins
  • The Armageddon Rag - George RR Martin
  • Glass (Crank #2) - Ellen Hopkins
  • A Crown of Swords (The Wheel of Time #7) - Robert Jordan
  • Fallout (Crank #3) - Ellen Hopkins
  • The Unbound (The Archived #2) - Victoria Schwab
  • The Magician's Guild (The Black Magician Trilogy #1) - Trudi Canavan
  • The complete Maus - Art Spiegelman (Graphic Novel)
  • The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books #1) - Carlos Ruiz Zafon

July Reading Progress

July 2016 Books
It seems I got through a fair amount of books this month! However, none of them were a Wheel of Time book, nor were any particularly long. So looks can be deceiving. In other news I got a new part time job and my next uni semester has started back up, all of which means I unfortunately don't have much time at all to myself any more.

  • Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) - Sarah J, Maas
  • Hunter (Hunter #1) - Mercedes Lackey
  • The Archived (The Archived #1) - Victoria Schwab
  • The Rithmatist - Brandon Sanderson
  • Dragon Keeper (Dragon Keeper #1) - Carole Wilkinson
  • The Gray Wolf Throne (The Seven Realms #3) - Cinda Williams Chima
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Neil Gaiman
Currently Reading:
A Crown of Swords (The Wheel of Time #7) - Robert Jordan

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

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