I’ve been pushing this post further and further and I don’t really have a reason for that other than I already posted so many summaries, short review, etc that Don’t have much more to add but let’s see if I have some curiosities left :).
The bookish statistics
- Finished 9 stories: 1 graphic novel, 8 audio books, together 3310 pages. I should count this month in hours rather than pages but I’m way too lazy to count ;).
- Average rating: 3.8 which is exactly what I had last month o.O.
- I finished all of the bookish challenges that had a chance to be finished and forgot about others because… time
- Since it was pretty much an Audiobook month I only managed to add more paper books to my library :P. I made it a challenge for this year to actually read them.
In other news:
- I did mention I have a growing coffee addiction didn’t I? Well, it’s even worse now since I got a coffee machine for free :D. I’m doomed!
- Since it was a Chrismas time I’ve spent a lot of time concentrating on gifts and preparation and stuff and I didn’t really do much more.
- Surprisingly I’ve only lost one plant this year! That’s quite an achievement for me, so don’t stare strangely 😛 Aaaand it looks like one orchid decided it might be time to actually blossom again! I wonder which one was it…
- It seems “Nightingale” is quite a popular book since both me and my out though of buying it for my mom for Christmas 😛
Favorite book of the month
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Yes, I’m putting it up here again :D. It’s a great book and I want everyone to read it! I loved everything about it including the fact that Wil Wheaton read the audiobook :).
Natural History of Dragons
This one ended up as a DNF unfortunately. I love dragons and I had this book on my list for years now, so when I found this audiobook available on playster I quickly started listening. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what I expected, but to be fair it’s pretty much what the title/cover suggests.
All the other stories I’ve read:
As usual – from worst to best and links (click on covers) lead either to my reviews or to Goodreads page.
Currently reading / listening to:
Hero – The last part of the epic saga about Drizzt. I want to read it, but it will end it all! Even if I haven’t read most of the middle books yet ;).
Idź i czekaj mrozów [Go, await the frost – not really a great translation, but it’s all I have now] – A new Polish fantasy that I was recommended by my friend and for now it’s really exciting and I’m starting to wish it had an English version so all of you could read it!
Largo Winch: Group W – And something that needed undusting – a book I had for a while now, based on French graphic novels and for now much less exciting, but maybe it will get better.
Working on reviews:
Basically, I have many almost forgotten reviews I need to write and one new that’s waiting for better times. I’m thinking of writing a sort of short reviews post to sum all some of those last year books.
Thank you all!
