Let’s Try This Reading Thing Again

It’s not that I ever fell out of love with reading, it’s just that I always found an excuse. I had no time, I was too tired.. Blah, blah blah. I always managed to put it off which looking back on it makes me quite sad because I love reading. It’s always brought me such joy!

It’s been a while since I bought a book that got me excited to dive into it! The last book I really got into was A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. & I loved it! If my memory is right, it was the 3rd book in the series & I was loving it! But that was ages ago, and I have to admit I have yet to finish it. It’s not that it’s not a fantastic series! Because it’s amazing and let’s be honest, Sarah J. Maas could write about a potato wedge & I’d read it.

Because it’s been so long since I started to read that, I feel like I can’t just pick it up and finish it off. So, I went shopping!
I managed to find my kindle, it’s pretty old at this stage it’s about 4? But works well & I always forget how amazing it is! Especially because I have a longer commute to work now since moving I can use the extra time to read, & I don’t have room in my bad for a big book.

Anyway, I bought Marie Lu’s Warcross! & I’m SUPER excited for it because I remember reading Marie Lu when I was younger and she had a trilogy called Legend & I couldn’t get into it at all. I wasn’t big into trilogies when I was a teen, what can I say.. I loved the first one though, & remember thinking I wanted to read more of her stuff.

FUN FACT: Up until this point I didn’t realise that I had downloaded The Young Elites! I think I read it on holiday, while on a 14 hour flight to Vietnam! & after googling, realised also that Lu wrote that too. Jesus. Does anyone remember when I was an actual good book blogger? Because I sure don’t.

Back to the matter at hand though, I’m even more excited to read Warcross now because I enjoyed The Young Elites.

Because it’s October I’m also pretty excited to read some horror! First on the list is IT by Stephen King, for obvious reasons. But I’m in need of more recommendations! So if you have any favourite books to read at this time of year, please, please let me know!

Until then, happy reading!

  1. I also went through a phase where in I didn’t get into reading books as much as I used to except for textbooks in school which are required to be read. And I understand that feeling when it’s been a long time not reading and not finishing a book but I pushed myself to finish the book and it took me a week at first to finish that one book but then I enjoyed reading once again and I’ve been reading a lot since.

    It seems like you have some great reads on your shelf but if you want book recommendations, I recently wrote a post about books to read this fall, so if you’re interested, here’s the link:

    I hope you have a great day and cheers to more books! 😄📚📖❤🎃
