New Year New Reads is a readathon designed to tackle your TBR headfirst, with the main theme being that whatever you read, it’s something new to you, whether it’s a new author, or new genre. The readathon runs throughout January, and is a great way to get you reading new things ready for the coming year!
What books had you read this week?
Well, I finished The 5th Wave which technically does and doesn’t count for NYNR. I started it before January, but I have never read anything by Rick Yancey before, and I think The 5th Wave is his debut anyway.
Since it took me way longer to finish than I anticipated (through no fault of the book – I was pretty busy over Christmas and for the first few days of January), I’ve only just started Divergent and I’m about 60 pages in.
For each book; did you enjoy it? Briefly, why?
I really liked The 5th Wave (even though I don’t get to count it in NYNR) because it was a very original and unique YA.
Divergent is also seemingly a book that is quite different, and I am enjoying it so far.
What books are you planning to read next?
I plan to finish Divergent, then start Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
