Please let me take a moment to congratulate myself for predicting that I would fall into a reviewing and reading slump around this time of the year. *pats self on back* So, earlier on this year, because I am so fabulously great at fortune-telling, I decided to dig a huge gap in the Google Calendar we Midnightians use to organise and schedule posts for the blog for a hiatus in the worry that I’d probably die of reviewing and reading crappy books. And here I am, feeling rather drained of words and totally sick of crappy books.
Also, please let me take a moment to start sobbing because school has started again. *sobs*
Back on topic, I am taking a blogging hiatus for a month and will return on the 13th of August with a review of Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant. I am leaving this blog in Celine and Larissa’s totally capable hands, so the blog will still be up and active. I’ll be using this hiatus to read some books that I have been dying to read, such as the ones below. (I might review a few books for Finding Bliss in Books if I have a lot to say about a specific book.)
I am very excited to dig into these pretty books. Obviously, I won’t have the time to get to all of them, but I am hoping to read a good chunk of these. High on my TBR is definitely Shadow and Bone, I have been delaying that series for too long, and now that book 3 is out, it seems appropriate for a binge read. I just realised that the books I want to read most are the first row and last row. *drools looking at the covers*
I am thinking of making a TBR jar with these titles. I have always wanted to make one but never had the opportunity to because I’ve always been tight with review copy priorities. So yes, EXCITEMENT!
And another note, Larissa and I are about to start read-a-longing Deadly Little Sins by Kara Taylor, so that’s another book I’ll be reading during my hiatus.
I’ll still be active on Twitter and Goodreads (a bit on Finding Bliss in Books) but I am just taking a step down from blog related things for the coming 4 weeks. I will be blog commenting though (hopefully)! I am so behind on that -.-
Bye for now, bookish nerds! <33
Have you read any of these? Which ones do you guys think I should pick up first?
