I’ve decided that this year I’m going to keep a tally of the books I’ve read here on my blog. I’ve seen people doing this on Twitter and Instagram, but I thought it might be nice to keep a more permanent log of it on here.
Last year I decided to join Goodreads and set myself the challenge to read 30 books. I just missed out on it and only did 27, so this year I’ve set myself the same challenge and hopefully I’ll do it this year instead! Every time I complete a book I’ll add it to the list here and give it a review out of 5 too.
Is there anything else you want me to add about each book that you’d like to see?
- The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. — 3.5/5 Stars — Quite a good book, but not as engaging as Northern Lights. A nice bridge to the next one though, with a good cliffhanger.
- The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. — 4/5 Stars — A good ending to the series, but I still didn’t find it as good as book 1. A little disappointed with the ending and the way the battle was written.
- The Memory Wood by Sam Lloyd. (Gifted through The Tandem Collective) — 4.5/5 Stars — Such a good book. It has several really good twists in it that I didn’t see coming. A little disappointed in the ending but it didn’t ruin the book.
- The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. — 5/5 Stars — A beautifully written account of Lale Sokolov’s time in Auschwitz/Birkenau concetration camp throughout the war and how he met the love of his life. I’d definitely recommend.
