I read eleven books last month (three of which were audio books), and I’m kind of proud of that. I’m hoping to go a step further and read twelve this month, but first let’s go over what I read!
Friends and Fangirls, we’ve all sorted our main goals for 2019, but we need to consider the truly important goals: reading goals. I read a lot in 2018, and it’s very important to me that I read just as much in the new year.
Ok, Fangirls, I’ve finally gotten through seasons 4 and 5 of Game of Thrones. I’ll be honest, between having little time and being irritated by a few things within the show, it was a struggle. I’m going to break this up and discuss each season individually.
As I’m sure you’re aware, Fangirls, sometimes its incredibly difficult to find time to do the things that we love. I’ve always had issues making myself to go shoot with my camera when I’m not being assigned to do so, and it’s starting to seem like that’s the case with reading as well.
Fangirls, it’s no secret among my friends and family that I am a reader. I had to buy a new bookshelf recently because I had long ago run out of room. If I’m not reading multiple books at a time, something is not right. I am a self-proclaimed and proud book nerd. One series that I love is called the I Am Number Four series. It’s intricate and fun and light and intense and emotional, it’s such a great read.
Lately, a lot of popular books involve the end of the world in some form or another. Some are well done, some are not. I just finished the second book in a series called Endgame by James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton, and it is definitely one of the better series in this genre.
If you’re like me, Fangirls, you may have a love for ancient mythologies. I’m a history nerd, I went to school for history, and ancient mythologies are my favorite subject. Sadly, they’re not often shown in the dark and dirty way they’re meant to be told. And that’s understandable but frustrating. Well fear no more. I’m here to tell you about a book called Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes; A No Bullshit Guide to World Mythology by Cory O’Brien.
