This is always such a strange, but at the same time exciting time of the year. It’s a time of endings and beginnings, of saying goodbye to loved ones and meeting new people. August was a crazy month for me: it was my last month at work, and only last night I said goodbye to my lovely colleagues who were going back home. Meanwhile I’m very busy sorting through my things and packing, because I’m moving to Edinburgh in only 3 days (yikes!).
Because I’ve been so busy, August has been a slow month for me reading-wise. I only managed to finish 3 books, though I started 2 others as well but I haven’t been able to finish them yet.
I finally managed to finish A Feast For Crows, which took me ages. For me this was definitely the weakest installment of A Song of Ice and Fire so far, but apparently I’m not the only one who feels that way. As always Martin does manage to make the ending of the book really intense and exciting, and it leaves the reader wanting more, so I definitely want to continue the series and see how the story progresses.
I’ve put The Wise Woman on hold for now because the book just didn’t really interest me to be honest. I couldn’t get into the story and I couldn’t relate to the main character at all.
I’m rereading The Constant Princess because it’s been years since I read it, and I find I’m enjoying it as much as I did the first time around. It also ties in really nicely with The White Princess, because in a way it’s a continuation of that story.
Other than that I haven’t done much this month to be honest, besides working and preparing for my big move to Scotland, but more about that when I’ve actually arrived 🙂
What have you read this month?
