Reflection

  1.  I read two of these books and did a review here:Reflection | Reading a Shortlist Vol. 1. I picked up two more I am veery excited to get to. Two I still need to buy or get from the library. One I am really not looking forward to it The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. I read the first book and I did not like it at all. I am technically a little behind on this one, but I am not too far behind.
  2. Did it!!
  3. I only have 10 more books to go, so I am very excited about that, I thought I was going to have a lot more left on my TBR.
  4. I am more than halfway to my page goal, yay! This is always the goal I am more worried about since I can’t just read short books, manga, or graphic novels to just pump up my numbers. I need to put in the reading work for this one.
  5. I am exactly at the halfway mark for reading 16 non-fictions books. I am really happy to be on track for this one. I have been really in the mood to learn lately and I feel like I will have this goal done very soon.
  6. With everything going on with a pandemic, my library was closed for a very long time so I was not able to borrow from them too much. I could request ebooks, but the ebook waits have sky rocketed since that is the only option for many people. I am not too worried about this goal though since I am not too far off.
  7. I am halfway through this one so I am very much on track. I also have the 3 books in mind I am going to be reading. So, I think this is another “win”.
  8. I picked the book I am going to read and purchased it, I just need to get my butt in gear and actually read it.
  9. As for this year long challenge I am very much on track. I was kinda worried I would have given it up at this point.

How are your goals going?

TBR

To Be Read | June 2020

To Be Read

Hello and welcome to my June TBR! I am actually excited for the month of June for a few reasons. We are officially in the last month of the first half of the year, which is a bit mind blowing. On top of that I feel like it will be a nice fresh start for my reading since it was a bit subpar last month and I am actually not forgetting about my ebooks for once! I don’t want to ramble this month, but I really feel like it is going to be a great month. On to the books!


Physical Books

The first book is going to be a mystery one that was picked for me by Melinda from Basement Bookcase. It is a new to me author and something that is very outside my normal reading so I am excited to see how it works out.

The first book pictures is Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. Last year I read my first book from him and I really fell in love with his writing style. Plus, one of my goal this year is to read a book recommended by one o my favorite authors and this was on Joe Hill’s list. So, I get to read a book by a great author and cross a 2020 goal off of my list.

Next I have Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King, which is the Stephen King book that I have had on my owned TBR the longest and I am in the mood for something scary so I am picking this up. I am not really sure what to expect because I completely forgot the description at this point. I just remember picking this up at The Strand in NYC at last years Bookcon.

Twelfth Night is my Shakespeare pick for June, I really don’t have a ton of thoughts on this just yet.

Lastly I am buddy reading Prodigal Son by Dean Koontz with Jenna and Reg this month. I have never read anything by Dean Koontz, but I know they are a popular author and I am always seeing their name everywhere so I am excited to give them a shot.


Digital Copies

I have really been neglecting my digital books as of late and I really need to get to them. So, this month I want to read three of these.

The first listed here is The Devil in the White City by by Erik Larson. This story shares some of what transpired around the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, including Americas first serial killer. It is a morbid one, but I really want to know more about the World Fair because I hear about it often, but also about this criminal history.

The second book is I’m Ju I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual by Luvvie Ajayi. The tag line “Perfect for starting important and meaty discussions about all of the topics your mama told you never to bring up at polite dinner parties.” really sold me.

Lastly, we have Your Goddess Year: A Week-by-Week Guide to Invoking the Divine Feminine by Skye Alexander. I have always been interested in leaning about the gods and goddesses from a wide range of civilizations. I feel like a lot of them are not talked about a lot because they are not part of the major circles of gods we study in school so I am excited to learn about 52 new ones!

I just noticed that all my ebooks were nonfiction! This really excites me because I have been meaning to read more of it since I read none last month.

Wrap Up

Wrap Up | May 2020

Wrap Up

Hello and welcome to this months reading wrap up! This month has been a stand out for me for this year and not for the best reasons. This year I have managed to read double digits every single month before this month, this month I struggled to read what I did read. I am not really sure what the reason was, I was not in a reading slump. I think I was just tired, I am not really sure how to explain it. I tried to turn it around in the later part of the month by doing a challenge, you can read about that in my post called, Challenge | One Week Reading Before Bed. This was nice because it kind of restarted my habit of reading, I am thankful I gave it a go. Well, even though this was not the best reading month, I still managed to read a few books and here they are!


Read 2

The Fiery Cross (Outlander, #5)The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Since this is the fifth book in the series, I don’t want to say so much. But, I will say that this is a wonderful continuation of the series. As always the writing is wonderful, the research put in is apparent, and the characters are still written amazingly.

View all my reviews


The Taming of the Shrew (Barnes  Noble Shakespeare)The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall, this was a pretty alright read. There were parts that I really disliked about this play. First how t8765423533523242e “shrew” is treated really kinda pissed me off to no end. I might have annotated this with a few “WTF!” throughout. I did like the other aspects such as the “pretending”, I wont say more than this because I don’t want to ruin this play for others. Honestly, part of me wants to rate this lower than I have as more time passes. Might come back and do that.

MooncakesMooncakes by Suzanne Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a wonderful graphic novel. I loved the relationship characters, a plot through and through.

View all my reviews


MiddlegameMiddlegame by Seanan McGuire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I actually wrote up a whole review on this book for a my series called, Someone Picks My Books. If you want to hear all of my thoughts and why I enjoyed it so much please check out my review here: Someone Picks My Books | Evelyn Reads | Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

View all my reviews


The Magician's Land (The Magicians, #3)The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a fantastic end to the series and it took some surprising turns and new characters. I felt like a lot of growth happened between book 2 and 3 for quite a few characters as well. I really liked how a lot was resolved, but also the ending leaves a lot open as well to let you think of what might have happened.

View all my reviews


 

Northanger AbbeyNorthanger Abbey by Jane Austen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really loved the use of novels and story telling throughout this novel and how it impacted the main characters imagination. This was a very good novel and I enjoyed reading it immensely. I might even like this more than Pride and Prejudice.

Someone Picks My Books | Evelyn Reads | Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

Someone Picks My Books

Hello and welcome to another one of my Someone Picks my Books post! This month Evelyn over at evelynreads.com has picked my read. I was very excited when she picked this months pick because I have read other works by this author and really enjoyed it and I have seen many others have loved this book. I guess I should tell you that the book is Middlegame by Seanan McGuire. This is the first adult book I have read and the longest book I have read by this author so I am curious to see is her talent flows into this age group and length.


Book Description

Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.

Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.

Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.

Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.

Godhood is attainable. Pray it isn’t attained. – goodreads.com


Review

I decided that I am going write this post more like my traditional review format where I talk about what I liked and didn’t like and then my overall feelings.

What I Liked

As with other works by Seanan McGuire the worlds she creates is very imaginative, but this is imaginative in a very different way than the there works I have read by her. One of the standout things in this book for me is the mixture of alchemy and science. While  I have read quite a few books with these aspects in them, I have never seen them combined in such a way. It was refreshing and interesting, part of my wishes that I saw more of it.

Also, if you know me science fiction isn’t really my thing…like at all. I don’t know what it is, but I am unlikely to enjoy a book with science fictions details in it with a few rare exceptions of 11/22/63, Jacky, and a few others. I have to say that this book also makes that list for me. I think the reason that it does make it on that short list is because it has an old world feel to it, which I love. It is almost like a spooky gothic modern science fiction book? It is really hard to pinpoint what this book truly is because I feel like McGuire melds together so many things so seamlessly.

On top of everything I also mentioned I found it really interesting the “rules” of this world when it came to particular characters interacting as well as the “government”. I felt like a lot of these aspects were shown and not told to me, which was great. Sometimes books that have such “out there” things in them the author can come across as if they are showing an unknowing child something. McGuire just goes through the story and you don’t miss anything.

What I Didn’t Like

One of the things I did not fully like about this book was that in the start I felt like one section of interaction could have been cut and not a ton would have been lost. This is just a personal thing and I feel like a lot of people enjoy seeing these sections interactions. They are still written in a really enjoyable manner and I didn’t feel like I had to seriously push myself to oread them, but I did find myself going “again?”

Overall

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I am so happy that Evelyn picked this for my to read because honestly, while I enjoyed McGuire’s other works I am fairly certain I would not have picked it up. That is the beauty of this series. This was a very imaginative book with a very gothic/dark/old world feel to it that I was craving. On top of that it was well written had great characters.


Next month I am reading a book that is picked by Melinda at Basement Bookcase!

Have you read this book before or is it on your TBR?

Overall, I did very well this month. I read quite a bit more than I usually do and being gifted a book and not buying too much really aided in my getting my TBR this month. This was a huge help because my birthday is in May and well,  always end up getting a few books so my TBR goes up without me doing any buying.

Animal Crossing Gamecube: Leaving Open


Thankfully a lot of the books that were already on my monthly TBR for challenges and such fit into this readathon, which never happens to me. The only prompt I am at a loss for is Animal Crossing Gamecube. I am not sure if I want to reread something or read a the book I have had sitting on my shelf the longest. But, I figure I have time to make a decision and it will allow my mood reading a choice in the matter.

TBR | December 2019

ToBeRead12:17

Hello and welcome to my end of the year TBR. I cannot believe I am writing the last TBR post of 2019. Last month I didn’t really read too much, to the point I couldn’t even post my normal Middle Mark post. While I wasn’t having the best of reading months, I did have a lot of fun doing other things and was focusing on myself. Anyway, here are the books that are a priority to read before the end of the year rolls around.


Bury What We Cannot Take by Kirstin Chen and The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman, I was searching online for a book to read for my year long challenge of reading a book from every continent. At this point I only need two, not sure why I waited so long to do this. I need a book from Asia and Australia. Bury What We Cannot Take, which I have started at this point, looks like it is going to be an emotional roller coaster where is talks about hard choices, government rule, and also what is family loyalty. I am really looking forward to reading this because I feel like this is going to be a very powerful read.  The Light Between Oceans on the other hand deals with a smaller sized family of a wife and husband moving into a lighthouse then a dead body a baby show up. I feel like this is going to be a heartfelt story as well, but instead of being a family torn apart, it might be a family growing together. 

The Morrigan by Courtney Weber, I have always been interested in various gods and goddesses, but I normally just read general myths and legends. I decided to pick this book up because the goddess it was about, I never really heard of her much, and the second because it was an entire book dedicated to her. I flipped through it at the store and it seems like it really is going to be an interesting read. I am excited to learn about her.

So, those are the three books I am hoping to read before 2020 gets here. I hope your reading month is wonderful and the end of 2019 is full of fun!

Lets Talk

Let’s Talk | Things I Want to Track in 2020

LetsTalk12:17

Hello and welcome to this little self talk and discussion. Over the year I have been become a bit more interesting in data revolving around my reading habits. I don’t what the reason behind it, but I feel like it would really show an interesting picture.


I know that goodreads keeps track of a lot of information such as how many books I’v read, book ratings by year, pages read etc. But, this is a mainly an end of the year event. I would really like to see if there are patterns for particular months. So, this is where this post comes in.

While I do really appreciate all the data goodreads keeps for me, I am interested in data that is not collected in a manner easily accessed. While you pick the editions you read of particular books, there is no way to look back at the year and see I have read this many ebooks, this many hard covers and so on. You also don’t have easy access to seeing the books you DNF, unless you count a book as read and put it on a shelf, which messes up my other stats. So, here comes my handy dandy notebook. Yes, I did just make a Blues Clues reference. I regret it already. lol.

Next year I would really like to track the following things on a monthly basis. If a book is fiction/nonfiction, while I know I read a wide array of genres, I would like to make this to be general so I am not overwhelming myself. While I know I read each of these each month, I don’t really track it too much and I would like more insight. Following that I would also like to track general stats like how many books of each rating, pages per month, library or owned. On top of keeping track of the format and how many I DNF over a year as I noted earlier.

I know a few blogs I follow do this, this is not all, but the ones I saw the most recently, are Read With Allison and Jordyn Roesler and I really love how they do this, but I really want to make this more conducive to my reading and my blogging style. So, I have another month to figure this out, but if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!

What stats do you keep track of?

Do you track outside of goodreads or only goodreads?

Decluttering

Down the TBR Hole | #3

declutterHello and welcome to another DOwn the TBR Hole post from me. I am going to be making these, at least for now, a bi-weekly thing here on my blog until I am able to get through my entire list and I might actually make it about 20 books instead of just limiting myself to 10 books, sorry Lia I am changing the rules!  Anyway, on with the decluttering!


-The Rules-

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  •  Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

-The Books-

The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen Campbell

Added on Feb 12, 2018. This is actually a short story collection that appear to all be magical and possibly has the potential to turn dark. I feel like this might be perfect the Halloween time so I am going to be keeping this on my TBR.

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

Added on Feb 17, 2018. This one I am going to say is me being a dummy, I added this book to my TBR without reading the first book or even owning it. I am going to be removing it for the time being and look into the first book. Oops!

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon

Added on Feb 17, 2018. I feel like this might be the grown up version of the animated Anastasia movie, but if I am being honest I just want to rewatch the animated series. So I am going to be removing this from my TBR.

Man-Eater: The Life and Legend of an American Cannibal by Harold Schechter

Added on Mar 04, 2018. I am going to be honest this was only added to my TBR because it was kinda interesting, I mean look at the title,  and it was free on Amazon. Am I actually going to read it, most likely no. So I am going to be removing it.

Not Perfect by Elizabeth LaBan

Added on Mar 04, 2018. This is in the same category as the book above I picked it up because it was free and kinda sounds interesting, but honestly I am never going to be reading it. I am going to be removing it.

Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot

Added on Mar 07, 2018. Okay, this just seems like such a powerful memior that I really need to read it. Please click through on the title to read it because I cannot do it justice. I am going to be keeping this book on my TBR.

Invitation to a Bonfirby Adrienne Celt

Added on Mar 14, 2018. I am going to be removing this book from my TBR because I have not really been in the mood to pick up a thriller as of late. 

Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

Added on Mar 19, 2018. I honestly have no idea why I added this to my TBR. I mean there must have been a reason, I just cannot remember at all. It is not my normal reading so I am going to be removing it.

The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill

Added on Mar 28, 2018. I added this when I was really into retellings of fairytales and mermaids. I currently am not really into mermaid stories and I have also seen some negative reviews by people I have similar reading tastes to, so I will be removing this one.

Howards End by E.M. Forster

Added on Apr 05, 2018. After reading the description I can see that this would be an interesting look into society at the time, but I really do not see myself reading it. I am going to be removing this book.

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins

Added on Apr 06, 2018. I have enojoyed the works of Wilkie Collins in the past and I am in the mood for a good murder mystery from time to time and I will be picking this up. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR shelf.

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Added on Apr 06, 2018. This is a story I was really excited about, but put off buying for one reason or another. At this point I have heard that some people have not enjoyed it who have pretty much the same taste in books as I do. Due to this, I am going to be removing it from my TBR.

Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada

Added on Apr 18, 2018. This sounds like a very interesting story revolving around living under the pressure of the growing Nazi party during WWII. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR.

Skin Deep by Liz Nugent

Added on Apr 21, 2018. I am going to be keeping this book on my TBR because I finally bought it earlier this year. I am really excited to be reading within the next month or so.

Moody Bitches by Julie Holland

Added on Apr 30, 2018. At this point I don’t see myself reading this book for a few reasons. The most important being I am not longer interested in reading about moodiness in women being caused by medicine. I am going to be removing this from my TBR.

In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

Added on May 12, 2018. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR because I want to continue my reading of the Wayward Children series and this is the next one I need to read.

The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson

Added on May 14, 2018. The only reason I am going to be removing this from my TBR shelf is due to the fact I don’t really have an interest in starting a new series that isn’t one I am really pulled into when reading the description.

When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought by Jim Holt

Added on May 28, 2018. While this is a very interesting topic, exploring more scientific theories and what not. Currently I do not have the time to read such a dense and time consuming book even though the content really interests me. I am going to be removing this book from my TBR.

Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire and Beauty by Nikita Gill

Added on Jun 06, 2018. I have read multiple collections of hers and I have enjoyed them quite a bit, I am going to be keeping this one on my TBR to enjoy in the future.

soft in the middle by Shelby Eileen

Added on Jun 29, 2018. This is another poetry collection, but I don’t think I will be keeping it on my TBR at this time. I think I added this to my TBR because it met a challenge, but I read something else to meet it. I will be removing this from my list.
