Let’s do some stats, because stats are fun!
This month I read 13 books, give or take a few things I read for school that I didn’t record.
Favorite Book: Oh god, everything in my 5-star column. If I have to choose, it’ll be between Bands of Mourning and Far From You. I’m not sure I can narrow it down any further.
Least Favorite Book: This isn’t on the above list, but can I say New York by Gaslight by George Foster? I read it for class and it was overwritten and boring and redundant and enough about the prostitutes already!!! Of the books I listed here, Gena/Finn was the most disappointing but The Night Circus was the one I enjoyed reading least. (It wasn’t bad, mind you. The writing and setting were great! It just didn’t work for me.)
Most Fun Book: The Bands of Mourning! The group dynamics were spot on.
Most Heartwarming Book: Definitely Everything Leads to You–that last chapter was perfect. But the epilogue of Stars Above is very very close.
Most Painful Book: 1000% Far From You
Most Surprising Book: The ones by Brandon Sanderson, obviously.
Characters of the Month: Steris Harms from The Bands of Mourning, Sophie from Far From You, all the ladies from The Abyss Surrounds Us, and the protagonist of Secret History whose name I can’t reveal due to spoilers
OTPs of the Month: Cas/Swift (The Abyss Surrounds Us), Emi/Ava (Everything Leads to You), Mina/Sophie (Far From You), Wax/Steris (The Bands of Mourning), and all the Lunar Chronicles ships
Friendship of the Month: The entire Lunar Chronicles squad, Gena and Finn even if I wasn’t too happy with parts of their story
Book I’ll Try Really Hard to Get to Next Month: All the f/f books I didn’t get to this month, but particularly Otherbound and The Scorpion Rules. Also A Gathering of Shadows and Calamity!!! And I think The Winner’s Kiss comes out next month YES GIVE ME THE THING.
This month I read 7 books, give or take a few things I read for school that I didn’t record.
Favorite Book: STARS ABOVE. STARS A-FREAKING-BOVE.
Least Favorite Book: Sadly gonna have to be the Percy Jackson Ultimate Guide, it just didn’t have the same sparkle as the rest of the books.
Most Fun Book: ALL OF THE PERCY JACKSON
Most Heartwarming Book: STARS ABOVE.
Most Painful Book: The Lost Hero. Precious Annabeth.
Most Surprising Book: Umm… I kinda knew the cliffhanger in Mark of Athena otherwise it would’ve been that one.
Characters of the Month: ALL OF MY PRECIOUS LUNAR CHRONICLE CHARACTERS.
OTPs of the Month: See above answer. But also add in Percy/Annabeth. Because I’ve become shipping trash for them.
Friendship of the Month: Oh lookie there, LUNAR CHRONICLES AGAIN.
Book I’ll Try Really Hard to Get to Next Month: I’m gonna finish up The Heroes of Olympus, and hopefully re-read the Winner’s Trilogy in expectation of The Winner’s Kiss coming out!
