Day #31 Blogmas: Goodreads Challenge

I don’t know exactly what I’m supposed to talk about for today, if just about how many books I read, or about the “Your Year In Books” thing that GR emails us, so I’ll do both just in case.

At the beginning of the year I pledged to read 75 books, which was an improvement after the previous 60 books pledge for 2018 (which was my worst year in reading, as all the previous years I had read about a 100). I had a very slow start due to my being in the last semester of my masters and having to do that thing called a thesis, and finding a job and yada yada. Things definitely let up this fall and that’s when I really got back into reading, tons of great books were released and I also got some good reread in. So in December I increased the challenge to 81 (also cuz I had forgotten to date some books, so that bumped the number up). I’m now one book away from my goal (writing this on the 26th), but tomorrow I’m leaving for a three day vacay in Spain (first time there!) so I’ll probably finish my current read on the plane.

Now, let’s get on my “Year in Books”. Also, I apologize for the awful formatting. If y’all know a way to paste this thing into a blog so that it doesn’t look like I tried to fit a square into a circle hole, please let me know.

The Royal Rogue by Karina Halle
My first review of the year:
I really enjoyed this one. It was a quick read that seemed angsty and complicated at first but that I devoured without wanting to throw it against the wall. I liked the characters and the felt very real and relatable despite the royal titles. I liked that there was no real villain and that the  circumstances that drove them apart were understandable.
I’m becoming more and more of a fan of this series. Plus, every scene with Aurora or Aksel (or

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

I have been struggling writing this review because there is so much to unpack in this book that every time I start I feel like I’m not even scraping the surface of what happens in this novel and all the feelings it brought out of me. At first I had started my revivew by summing the premise of the book, but as soon as I began talking about Jude and the DNA test, I realized that I had completely left out …more
