I figured as we’re halfway through the year, I would do a wrap-up of the things that I read. Especially as there were a lot of books that I managed to get through already. I don’t know if I’ll have quite the same amount read in the second half of the year, but you never know. When I get into a good book, I have a hard time putting it down.
The third installment of the Blood and Ash Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout was released called The Crown of Gilded Bones. I read it in a day as I had with the other two books in the series. I could not stop turning the pages in this book. Like the previous books, when I did my review on them, I’m going to be sharing spoilers. I have a lot of thoughts and don’t think I can adequately at this time do a proper review. I will give this book a rating of 4.25 out of 5 stars. In case you want to skip my thoughts to avoid the spoilers. It was good, the worldbuilding was spectacular of how things were handled. And I can’t wait for the next installment.
I saw this tag on Ellie’s blog, Read to Ramble, and she was tagged by Sabrina over at Sabrina’s Booktails, who found this tag on Prutha’s blog, The Confessions of A Music and Book Addict, and after searching through loads of other posts… I can’t find the original author of this tag nor could Ellie. If you know it, please share in the comments. But I wanted to do this tag since it looked interesting and I need something to blog about during the stretches between books. Since I don’t have time to read long books in one sitting at the moment.
I swore I was going to put down From Blood and Ash series for a while and read something else, but I haven’t. It’s all I’ve read this month a few times over. Including the first chapter that Jennifer L. Armentrout started on her website of The Crown of Gilded Bones, which doesn’t come out until April 20, 2021. Similiar to how I shared my thoughts and theories on what’s coming up for A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas, I thought I would do the same with this book.
2020 was a tough year for a lot of us. I know I already talked a bit about this in my Happy New Year and Goals for January 2021 posts, but I thought I would make a dedicated post for going over the books that I read last year and if any of my thoughts have changed in regards to them. Since this last year really got me back into reading, as before other than Shadowhunters Chronicles which was the majority of my reading in 2019 I pretty much never read. But in 2020, I read at least six to eight books a month. If not, more as I often end up reading several books multiple times or re-reading various chapters repeatedly.
