Creatures of the Night for Hungry Ghost Month [Book Tag]

I found this book tag sitting in my drafts, so I’ve decided to fill it out! Especially since Hungry Ghost Month is coming up soon… ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘บ

Book tag-list things are always fun and sometimes make me realise that I’ve been missing out on certain genres, or themes in my reading!!!

Asian Lit Bingo [Book Tag]

At the beginning of May I saw Aentee’s post about this month long event called,ย Asian Lit Bingo. Which is AMAZING, being from Singaporeย I’m always trying to find more books, especially SFF, written by Asian authors as well as books that ARE Asian in content in someway.

Instead of participating because my reading has been a bit stagnant as of late, I decided to find a book for each of the squares and make a rec list instead!! In retrospect I probably should have posted this earlier, but whatever. Better late than never. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Monthly Roundup โ†ช Feb/March๐Ÿ˜ต

February was a mess. Busy, but a mess. I had assignments due in the first week-ish and then at the end of the second week I was off for 10 days for my reading week to visit the US. And then when I got back it was all a blur and then it wasย March…!! I didn’t really read in Feb so I’m just combining the two months in one post…

Monthly Roundup โ†ช Nov๐Ÿ˜ด

I HAVE READ SO LITTLE THIS MONTH. WOW. SURPRISE SURPRISE… To be fair on myself, this month has been incredibly busy – I’ve been travelling out of town on the weekends to see friends, going to concerts, finishing assignments, classes have been long, I’ve been tired, etc etc.

LYF IS TUFF.


MONSTERS
by Emerald Fennellย ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ–

I had a ‘Talented Mr Ripley’ moment with this book. That means I did not expect it to get as disturbing and creepy as it did. I don’t wanna say anymore at risk of giving anything away. I gave it 3 out of 5 not because I didn’t enjoy it that much, but mostly because it weirded me out so much….!!! I’m not really into these kinds of creepy books. ANYWAY, if you enjoy reading about disturbing murders and creepy small towns, this is for you.

AND I DARKEN
[THE CONQUERERS SAGA #1]
by Kiersten Whiteย โš”โ˜ช๐Ÿฐ

So this book was a lot of fun!!! Long story short: if Vlad the Impaler was actually a girl and this is her ‘origin’ story of sorts. The book blurb basically explains it all so I’m not gonna repeat what’s there already, but what I WILL say is that it is a very fun and addicting read, especially if you love historical fiction. But maybe don’t expect it to be entirely accurate. I mean, it IS an alternate history novel, and also it’s complete fiction but “inspired” by real history. I initially picked it up because anything related to Vlad the Impaler and the ‘myth of Dracula’ or rather the Dracul’s of Romania, is right up my alley. Well enough that I’ll take a look at it. I didn’t know this was going to be a series when I picked it up and on finishing it I don’t think I’ll read the rest. I’m content with what I got from this one and I’m not invested enough in the characters to want to read more.

Monthly Roundup โ†ช Aug๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿ’ท

Oh August. What a weird month you’ve been.

I landed in the UK on the 3rd and then got sick like a day later from ye olde Travellers Flu/Cold. Which then lasted something around 2 weeks. But I powered through that and even went to the Nine Worlds convention, in which I also was part of a Star Trek roundtable!!!

And when I FINALLY RECOVERED, I spent the weekend up in Edinburgh visiting some friends!ย Which was of course super gr8, but as soon as I got back to England I got sick. AGAIN. And that has taken me about a week to recover from. Which of course was SUPER.

Did I mention I also got my phone stolen OUT OF MY HAND within the first week of being back in the UK?ย Thanks August. That was… Interesting.
