This was one of those months where I read a bunch and then slowed way down. I’ve been reading the same book for a while, but to be fair, it is quite a mammoth of a book. You can check out my current and previous reads on Goodreads.
Golden Son (Red Rising #2) by Pierce Brown – 4 stars
Holy moly, was this an intense read. I don’t usually read a lot of violent stories, and this is a sci-fi series with lots of war and fighting. It also has lots of great characters, and at the end I immediately would have started the next book if I had it (cliffhanger!!). After I took a few minutes and calmed myself, I decided to give myself a break and read something a little less violent in between.
The last book in this series was definitely 3 stars for me, but I loved the first one, and the second one was a good follow-up. The premise really grabbed me and it has an excellent cast of characters. The first one especially has a nice romantic side.
As You Wish by Cary Elwes – 4 stars
Loved this one! I definitely recommend if you like The Princess Bride. There were lots of funny stories and details about the actors that I never knew.
That’s it for me for now. As I mentioned in another post, I’m currently reading Live from New York about the history of SNL. Very interesting, but huuge and I am luckily close to finishing, because I’m ready to move on.
How has your month of reading gone? I am excited to see what everyone’s been reading.
