Hey guys! This month has been disastrous reading wise as I’ve read very little. I was struggling in the last few months of 2018 not to fall in a reading slump and I don’t know if it was going back to work after Christmas or the freezing weather that sent me spiralling and unfortunately gave me that final shove I was trying to avoid. I’ve just not cared to read anything at all and instead just spent my time staring at my phone or playing Spider-Man (which is awesome, by the way). So this is why my posts have been somewhat lacking this month and haven’t been very interesting, at least to me. I’m going to try and pull myself out of this slump in February as I seriously need to finish QOAAD!
The only positive thing I can say is that I’ve actually already ticked one of my reading goals off my list as I managed to listen to my first ever audiobook this month (more on that later). I was so bored in work and that desperate to read SOMETHING that I purchased an audiobook to listen to when work was slow. So that’s one thing done already, yay! Anyway, lets get into the two books I managed to read this month:
1) Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I read this over one weekend and whilst it was easy to read, I didn’t find it particularly interesting. I felt like nothing was happening and I didn’t really care for the characters. Pretty much the whole plot is the main character (I forgot her name already) constantly sneaking out and never getting caught despite saying countless times people always get caught. Amazingly convenient how she didn’t! She meets up with Alex (I actually remembered his name) and starts to fall in love with him. Then we get to the ending! The ending didn’t make any sense to me and it seemed like the author pulled it out of nowhere just so she’d have a reason to write another two books in this series. I’m not interested in continuing and will just pretend that the ending I originally thought was going to happen, happened. Maybe I would have liked this series if I read it when it first came out but 23 year old me says no thank you, next!
