September/October/November Wrap Up



I was gone for a bit and that means I haven’t posted wrap ups in the last three months. I thought it was a good time to catch up! 


1. Be with Me by Jennifer L.  Armentrout (3 stars) 

I didn’t remember reading this book until I read the sypnosis and what I remember is really vague.  So I think that says enough about it. I don’t think there was anything particulary wrong with it, I just didn’t find anything special in it either. 


2. Ciudad de Payasos  (City of Clowns) by Daniel Alarcon & Sheila Alvarado (5 Stars)

I loved this graphic novel! A latinamerican author and a latinoamerican ilustrator telling an  interesting and heartfelt story with an amazing portrait of Peru. If you want to read it, there’s a english version. 



3. Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Gleen Marsh (4 Stars) 

I was part of the blog tour for this book. I really liked it, it was a very atmospheric book. You can check my review here.




4. Undecided by Julianna Keyes (3,5 stars)

I liked this one, it was really funny and if you don’t read the sypnosis, your gonna find that something happens that it’s not really what you would expect from a new adult book. 


5. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (5 stars) 

I loved this! I can recognize the problematic aspects of this book, but I still loved reading it (and I don’t know how to feel about that). Anyway, I love Sarah’s writing and I love the fact that this book was full of dramatic moments, I always love books were the characters know how to put on a ‘show’ and where symbolism is so important. 


6-15. Addicted to You/ Calloway Sisters Series by Krista and Becca Riccie (Overall rating: 4.5 – 4.7 stars)

I read this series for the first time in july and I loved it! So, I re-read it at the end of october and beginning of november. This is my favortie new adult series. Before re-reading it, I had only re-read the Harry Potter series. I have never re-read other book or series in my life, so that’s how much I loved this series, and what surprised me most was that I loved it more the second time around. Check what I said about it before, here.


16. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (3,7 stars) 

Finally! After 3 tries I finally read this. I have to say that some things felt really relatable to be at this particular time in my life. The writing was great and  the way mental illness was talked about was right, I don’t know how else to put it, it was just right. It has a dislikeble main characters, but her story is still very interesting. 


CHALLENGES PROGRESS
RockMyTBR:  The Bell Jar (19/12)
Flights of Fantasy: Empire of Storms, Fear the Drowning Deep  ( 22/ 30 )
Backlist Books: The Bell Jar, Ciudad de Payasos, Be with Me (50/ 20)

Finishing the Series:   (2/3-6)  


I have one month left and I need to read 6 fantasy  books to finish the FOF challenge (I already read 2 more fantasy books in december), I’m surprise because I didn’t think that reading 30 fantasy book was gonna be a problem for me, but I had a fantasy reading slump for a while. Another spoiler, I already acomplish the Finish the Series challenge.  I only need to read those 6 fantasy books to complete all my reading challenges. I’m excited! I think I can make it. 


Have you read any of this books? Did you ike them? Tell me what books did you read and loved lately! Also, how are you doing with your challenges for this year? Do you think you are gonna complete them?

  1. EoS is the first Maas book I can admit that I had issues with. They weren't major but they made me feel less enthusiastic about that instalment than previous ones! Nevertheless like you, I still loved reading it. Except for the cruel CRUEL ending D: Good luck with your challenges!!

  2. Good luck with your challenges! I've only read one Armentrout book, The Problem with Forever, and I really liked it! I didn't join any challenges this year, they're not really my thing but I applaud those who do!

  3. Hi Sofia, all the best for your challenges! It sounds like you've made great progress so far, so I hope the holiday season will give you plenty of time to finish those books!
    I don't partake in challenges, mostly because I do noooot read well under pressure (as I learned very quickly when I was asked to beta read something)!

    I can share two books that I've read lately and loved! One is called The Memory of Light by Francisco X Stork, and Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Both are my new all time favourites!
