What I've Been Reading: Orphaned Characters Edition
At the beginning of this year, I set a GoodReads goal to read 52 books - roughly one book for each week of the year. I figured after having just finished Grad School is would take me a while to get back in the swing of reading for pleasure.
That was false. As of today, I have read 28 books. I am 13 books ahead of schedule...and quite a few of the books I've read have an orphan theme to them, which I am just now realizing as I type up this post.
Here's a small recap of some of the titles I've read this year with reviews told in 140 characters or less! The first four I enjoyed; the last two I did not.
Britta's father is murdered, & she is orphaned. The only friend she's ever known is blamed, & Britta must hunt him down. #love #magic #truth
Celeana is a badass who struggles with her past & her future. There are many ships & characters who will destroy you. #allthefeels
