Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Reading Dates: July 6 – 11
Read Count: 2
Favorite Thing: Regency Snark™
Least Favorite Thing: Lizzie’s mom is even more annoying in the books than she is in the screen adaptations and I had completely forgotten that. That is, she’s just as annoying, but she’s more long-winded in the novel.
I know a lot of people find classics dull, and granted there are quite a few incredibly dull classic novels, but this book is worth a read. There are many scenes that had me laughing out loud and calling other people to read a bit to them so they could appreciate it too.
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Cycle, book 3
Reading Dates: June 29 – July 17
Read Count: 2
Favorite Thing: “It was 6:21.”
Least Favorite Thing: Casual racism…yikes.
I should be posting a Raven Cycle post soon to talk about the series as a whole.
As for this one… The Unmaker gives me anxiety, I love all the Pynch, and Maggie really didn’t do Henry Cheng justice. Oh, and I’m proud of the Gray Man.
The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale
Reading Dates: July 30 (read it in a day for the Read-A-Thon)
Read Count: 1
Favorite Thing: Witchcraft meets midwifery 🙂
Least Favorite Thing: The freaking elders, like, fuck those dudes AND their bitchy wives…
I’m working on a review, hopefully have it up soon. I do definitely recommend this book. It’s easy to get through, but don’t expect a lot of action.
*** Update: I posted the review! ***
