Yeah... about that.
Technically, I didn't really "fail" because I was still reading all week. It wasn't like I quit reading. But I didn't make my goal either. Instead of reading five or six books, it was more like 3 and a half.
First, I read Clockwork Angel from The Infernal Devices trilogy. SO glad I gave this one a re-read! I appreciated it so much more the second time around and picked up on more of the plot and the characters.
Then, I moved onto The Vanishing Act by Mettte Jakobsen. This one was cute. It wasn't quite as magical as I had hoped, and the plot was lacking a bit. But I did enjoy the characters and the writing style. Also, it was a super short and fast read.
And THEN and THEN and GENTLEMEN AND THEN! (Name that musical.) The rest of my week was devoted to finishing The Infernal Devices trilogy. I couldn't resist. I tried to read The Rose Garden like I had originally planned but I just couldn't. Tessa, Will, Magnus, and Jem (ESPECIALLY JEM. I know Will is the super popular one and I love him too... but are there any other Team Jem members out there because I LOVE HIM) were calling my name and I could not turn away. Once I got sucked in there was no turning back. If anyone else has read this trilogy and loved it please let me know because I have a lot of feelings I need to talk about.
However, I only actually finished Clockwork Prince during Bout of Books and finished Clockwork Princess once the challenge was done.
If I hadn't gotten sick and had been able to keep my eyes open on Tuesday I might have gotten closer to completing the goals I had set for myself.
Now I am going back to my original goal for May of re-reading all of the The Mortal Instruments series before the final book, City of Heavenly Fire releases next week. I'm over 1/2 way through City of Glass right now and there are only two more after. So... I think I can do it. Right?
