The months go by so fast! Seems like only a week ago I was posting my April Wrap-Up and TBR! Today, I’m going to combine my May Wrap-Up and June TBR because I think that’s tidier?Read More »
It doesn’t seem like that long ago since the last Readathin, but an awful lot has happened! Last time, In February, I challenged myself to read 5 books for Readathin, and I didn’t even manage to read those because I had so much university work to do. However, my final deadlines are fast approaching, which means that I will have much more free time to read! In April, I read 9 books, so I think I can be a little more ambitious here with my Readathin May TBR.
Four Stories was the third book I read for read-a-thin this month. My previous review for my first read is here, and the post where I talk about read-a-thin and my TBR for the month is here. I’ve been a fan of Alan Bennett since I studied The History Boys for my A Level, but I’ve actually not read very much of his work at all. Four Stories is a collection of four of his short-ish stories, though as they each stretch to around 70 pages, they’re a lot longer than you might expect to find in a short story collection.Read More »
Back in August, I took part in read-a-thin and really enjoyed it. I didn’t manage to fully complete my TBR for the month, but I got through more books than I would’ve done otherwise. Now it’s February, which means it’s term time, and a lot of my time is committed to university. Because of this, I’m not convinced I’ll make it through my pile, but it’s certainly worth trying! I’m going to try to pick books that fit the challenges, though a lot of my book are at home, so I’m limited as to what I can choose.Read More »
Now August is over, I thought I’d make a second read-a-thin update post (first here) to tell you about the rest of the books I managed to read in August. I didn’t quite get through the five that I had left after my most recent update, but I did read another three books, and start a fourth, meaning I read somewhere in the region of eight and a half books in August, which I’m pretty happy with, given I spent several days at my boyfriend’s and didn’t have much time to read then, and I also worked a lot of hours. I also managed to fulfil all five of the prompts given, as I read a book that’s a part of a series towards the end of August, so yay! Next read-a-thin is in November and I might participate again, though with uni back in full swing by then, I might not read so much, but we’ll see. Without further ado, here’s some mini-reviews of the last three books I read in August.Read More »
