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.
Happy Friday, everyone! It feels like this week has gone on forever, but the weekend is nearly here. I've had a good reading week, despite some disappointments. Let's get to it!
Today I’m bringing you three flash reviews for books that are not even remotely related. Why are they in this post together? Because they were all incredibly quick and short reads -- one is a graphic novel and the other two are novellas. Take a look below at my thoughts on Ragged Alice by Gareth L.

I’m so pleased to say that In an Absent Dream really turned the series around for me and is such a beautiful book.
Happy Friday! It has been a roller coaster of a week and while I’ve been reading loads, I didn’t manage to finish anything (I shall explain in a moment). Things might get a little erratic here on the blog as Scottish Fiance and I get all of the planning wrapped up for our wedding (just over four weeks to go!) and chase down RSVPs, but try not to miss me too much!
I love a Brandon Sanderson novella. Whether his stories are long or short, he always manages to deliver a solid book with his classic style of ending. I have really only read fantasy from him and was very interested to see what his science fiction stories are like.v
