Wow! So this month I got a total of 23 books read, which is pretty good considering that I had NaNoWriMo going on as well. I’m so glad my reading has picked up again. 🙂
1 Star: This month, unfortunately, I had a total of 7 1 star books. Several of them that I DNF. I had less patients with books this month, I had a lot going on and if a book didn’t cook me within 30-60 pages I stopped reading.
2 Stars: Thankfully there’s only 3 books in this category. I was reading the pregnancy book because it’s on the list for doula certification, however I found it to be very biased and that was annoying. Lilly Singh’s book, although I think it’s heart is in the right place, had a lot of really obvious advice, repetitive advice or stuff that I just thought was terrible advice. And Wires and Nerve just felt a little bit rough around the edges, overall the story lacked good structure.
3 Stars: As always this section is a large one. With 6 books total, I found that these books were okay. Not great, not bad. But okay. I’m not sorry I read them. Probably the best of the bunch is Cannibalism by Bill Schutt, it’s one of those weird books where you learn a lot while reading. I wrote a review of Eleanor Oliphant already, which you can find here. And the one book I probably won’t be reviewing is the cookbook by Katie Wells, while it has some good recipes it falls into the problem a lot of cookbooks have, and that is assuming you have access to a certain type of produce. Hello, poor millennial here. Someone needs to write a cookbook of healthy food for poor students. 😛
4 Stars: Yay! There are more books here than I thought there would be, 7 total. I read a lot of really interesting books that I fully recommend to you guys, and that I will be reviewing at later dates. You can find the two poetry books already reviewed here. I really enjoyed trying some new genres this month. Borne is a science-fiction-ish story that I liked, and Lostboy is horror!
5 Stars: Wow…No books for this section. I’m not sure how this happened. 😦 There were a few books that I thought would be five stars, that didn’t quite make it to that level. But hopefully next month I’ll have read more!
What did you read this month? Any favorites? What do you plan on reading next month?
