Reading Progress, 3/14/16

I finished Winter by Marissa Meyer last night. My summary of how I feel right now is that it was neither terrible nor amazingly awesome, but I enjoyed it. I’ll post a full review by Wednesday.

I’m nearly done with Blue Lily, Lily Blue. Hopefully I can finish that by Wednesday and post a review by the weekend.

Once I finish these, I’ll probably get back to finishing Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I’m not sure if I’m having a hard time finishing that one because it’s the last in the trilogy (I frequently have problems finishing books because I just don’t want them to end!), or because I’ve just been in a bit of a slump.

I’d love some suggestions for other books to read. If you want to check out what I currently have in progress, and have read in the past to get an idea of what I like, check out my goodreads shelves. I’d love suggestions for books other than YA. I love YA, but it would be nice to read something else every so often (I’d particularly be interested in suggestions for graphic novels, especially anything with a strong female lead, double especially if I can also share it with my 10 year old sister [she’s already reading Sailor Moon]).

Reading Progress, 3/7/16

I’m currently jumping between a couple of books. I’m reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and Winter by Marissa Meyer. Winter is an e-book, while Blue Lily, Lily Blue is a physical book, so that’s part of why I’m reading both at the same time. Blue Lily is one I take with me pretty much everywhere, bouncing around from my backpack to my purse and back. Winter I mostly read in bed before I go to sleep because I have it on my tablet and can read with the light off. I hope I’ll finish at least one of them this week.

For class, we’ve moved on to reading poetry by Wordsworth and Coleridge. I think this week we start Lyrical Ballads. I’ve read some of it before, but it will be interesting to read the poetry while thinking about crime and punishment. This semester is going fast. It won’t be long before we reach the end and start reading Oscar Wilde. I can’t wait! 😀

For my goodreads challenge, I had started the year with a goal of 50 books. Based on the fact that I just haven’t felt like reading in the last few months, I changed my goal to 30 books. I am currently 1 book behind schedule, so I think that was a good choice on my part. After I finish my current reads, I’ll get back to the other books I’ve been neglecting.
