Very interesting so far. Always important to listen to all voices & stories.

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
Panpan

Let down by this mediocre book. At first I thought that maybe I would have liked it if i had read it ten years ago, when I was a kid, but after further thought I don't think I would have. Everything fell flat for me - the plot, setting, characters were shallow at best. I almost didn't finish; definite pass on the rest of the series 😶

When Dimple Met Rishi | Sandhya Menon

Surprised at the amount of dislike over this book! It's a cute contemporary; while the writing style wasn't stellar and there were some contradictions (did Dimple bring makeup to the Con or not? It's bugging me), it was still a fun, light summer read!

My heart feels achy. I loved this so so so much.
I didn't love Ari until the last few chapters, but it worked out well. Instant fave.

This was brilliant. I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud; my heart is fuzzy and full. It was beautiful in every way.

I've had a good reading day (featuring Charlie the bed bug). Finished 2 poetry books and a short novel before diving into Simon. I'm only 20 pages in and it's witty and charming.

A Dance with Dragons | George R. R. Martin
Pickpick

Finally finished this monster! Starting first year of university was a kick in the butt and i had zero time to read for fun. But, I made it!
A Dance with Dragons was beautiful. True to his style, Martin kept it interesting with points of views from characters we hadn't seen before. It was slow going in the middle, but the last 200 pages or so picked up, like usual. Can't wait for Winds of Winter!

A Feast for Crows | George R. R. Martin

I appreciate what Martin did with this volume: writing the whole story for the secondary characters instead of half of the story for all of the characters. That being said, if you're only invested in the big players, this novel will disappoint. While I thoroughly enjoyed the politics in this book, I did miss the main characters. Makes me excited for the next one!

This book is much slower than the others, but it means I'm almost to the end of the series! feat. my sleepy kitty
