Happy Friday all! This is an especially happy Friday because my birthday is tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to spending time with some of my favourite people* while celebrating my 31st year. How fun!
Some of you may know that Children of Time is one of my absolute favourite novels. I love the incredible scope, storytelling, and world that Tchaikovsky captures on the page. Children of Ruin is a fantastic sequel that expands on everything that made the first book great, all while serving a compelling and gorgeous story.
I'm pretty sure I've fallen into some sort of time slip. While April seemed to drag on and on, the month of May flew by in a flash. Despite being busy (as usual) and reading some longer books this month, I still managed to read ten books (and DNFed two), and I'm so proud. The slump is officially over! Hooray!
I don’t really know where to start with this review. I picked up Nine Perfect Strangers because I really enjoyed Big Little Lies and trusted Moriarty to write a sharp and compelling book. Where Big Little Lies is a well-structured page turner, Nine Perfect Strangers is a complete and utter mess. I was honestly shocked by the decline in quality!
I was so thrilled to be selected to be part of the Book Box Club’s blogger army! I’ve had my eye on this UK-based book subscription box for ages and am so pleased with their service so far.
Excuse me, I seem to have lost the entire month of May. Seriously, where did May go? I feel like April lasted forever and now the universe is trying to correct itself by moving at warp speed through May. Just me? Maybe? Okay. I've been reading quite a lot lately, but it doesn't necessarily reflect in my progress because I've been a little firmer about DNFing books! Take a look at my week is reading below.
As soon as I heard about Do You Dream of Terra-Two? I knew it would be the exact kind of book I love. I went into this debut sci-fi novel with high expectations and they were surpassed. A beautiful, thought-provoking story of mankind’s first manned interstellar mission, Do You Dream of Terra-Two? will haunt you long after the last page.
