January 2017 Reading Progress

January 2017 books

Hope everyone's new year is off to a great start!
Mine is (clearly) off to a slow start in terms of reading at least, I only just finished my first collection of Lovecraft stories on the 30th. If I had to choose, my favourite stories of those would have been Herbert West: Reanimator, The Colour Out of Space and The Whisperer in the Darkness.

  • Winter's Heart (The Wheel of Time #9) - Robert Jordan
  • The Call of Cthulhu and other Weird Stories - H.P. Lovecraft

Currently Reading:
Crossroads of Twilight (The Wheel of Time #10) - Robert Jordan

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

Currently Reading:
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
