As noted in my weekly wrap-up from last week, I finally finished the Grisha trilogy! And it was great! I’m still so ashamed of myself for not reading this series sooner, especially considering how much I liked it. It is totally worthy of all the hype it gets and I can’t wait for the Netflix series and I can’t wait to see Oncat on screen. Oncat is the best thing to ever happen to the Grisha trilogy, full stop, period, etc.

I started reading SCYTHE by Neal Shusterman because it’s one of my library’s summer reading books for the teens and I do want to read at least most of them so I can book talk them at outreach and when kids start signing up for the program. I thought I was over dystopian books and was a little nervous going into it, but Shusterman IMMEDIATELY sucked me in because the writing is SO GOOD and the premise is actually kind of cool and different. I’m only about 7% into the book so far but I am HOOKED and can’t wait to keep reading it.

I really need to read RUKHSANA ALI because I’ve had it out from the library for a few weeks now and it was one of my most anticipated January reads. I’m all for queer books PLUS this one is partially set outside of the US which is a not often explored land in YA I tend to read which is exciting plus other diversity plus just OMG I need to read this book.

I also just checked out Gretchen Rubin’s book THE HAPPINESS PROJECT. It’s a self-help book, which is a genre I’ve gotten somewhat interested in the past couple years, and it’s about her journey of trying various methods of getting happier, basically. I’m not familiar with her blog or podcast but I’m very curious about this book and hope it has some helpful tips for me to keep going on the positive trajectory that I have been on as of late.

  1. I am glad you enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy! I feel like I should do a complete reread of everything Bardugo before I sit down with King of Scars. I can’t wait to see what you think of your current read and the ones you have up next!

      I reread the first two Grisha books less than a year after rereading them, which I’ve never done before, but it was SO worth it! Leigh Bardugo is definitely worth rereading, so I hope you enjoy doing so if you decide to 🙂

  2. I immediately checked out the Happiness Project because mental health sucks and honestly we all need more happiness in our lives. I’ve only read a little bit of it so far but dang I really needed this. Iv’e also hear about Scythe and it sounds interesting and a different type of fantasy. I’m excited to hear your thoughts on it.

      Yeah, Scythe is super weird and different from most dystopian books I’ve read but so far I’m really liking it. Will try to review when I’m done with it 🙂

      I’m glad to hear The Happiness Project is helpful. I’ve definitely needed a bit of help in terms of boosting my mood so hopefully it’ll have the same effect on me!

  3. I’m so glad you’re liking Scythe so far, I’ve heard so much about this series, I really,really want to give it a try 🙂 Happy reading, Mel <3
