In My Life
Driving lessons are going well and I passed my final theory test last week! This means once I clear my subjects and complete my extra auto transmission lesson, I’ll be able to book my driving test. If all goes well and there’s no sudden influx of test takers, I expect my driving test to be in two months. Other than that, I’m looking forward to Sarah J. Maas’s book signing this Friday. It’s very rare that international authors visit, so I’m sure that’s gonna be interesting to witness.
- Bluescreen (Mirador #1) by Dan Wells — 4/5 stars [audiobook]
- Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas — 2/5 stars [ebook]
- The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson — 5/5 stars [paperback]
The most recent acquisitions actually arrived over the span of the previous four weeks or so. Since I’ve not noted them here before, I’m rounding them up all together: Radio Silence by Alice Oseman, Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, Stars Above by Marissa Meyer, and Thanks for the Trouble by Tommy Wallach.
On the Blog
It’s been months since I did up my last monthly recap. Since I’m not tracking my reading stats as actively this year, I’ve decided to stop posting these wrap-ups. Instead, I will include book hauls and feature the books I’ve read on a (mostly) weekly basis. As for updates of reading challenges, I have a page for that.
In case you missed it, I explained creative settings of a DSLR for book photography. I also included examples to show how aperture, shutter speed and ISO can be set for specific outcomes. Once again, I featured the newest YA book releases. I also recapped last month’s Bookish Scene: Project 52, showcasing some of my favourite photos. The current Project 52 theme is Twists & Turns.
While More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera is a work of science fiction, it reads like a cross with contemporary fiction. The morality of memory alteration combined with the struggles of being gay in the an intolerant environment gave a lot of food for food for thought. I’m really glad Hazel recommended it to me for Epic Recs. Perhaps my review might convince you to read it too.
