Let’s time travel through our bookshelves!
I found out this meme while blog-hopping, and honestly, I loved it. It was created by Maria @ Reading Maria, and you can find her original post by clicking here.
So today, instead of traveling towards another bookish galaxy, let’s time-travel! This meme also allows us to reflect on ourselves and our reading journey, how cool is that?
Before you get on board, here are some rules:
Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to
This year I am reading…
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
I heard so much about this book, I am really excited to read it. As I am writing this post, I just started reading it. I’m just a few chapters in, but I can sense all its potential and I’m sure I’m going to enjoy it!

Last year I was reading…
Relic by Bronwyn Eley
I read this book for a promotional tour organized by Caffeine Book Tours when I was back blogging on my old blog. Reflecting on this book, I almost forgot everything about it, but the setting.
It was not a year favorite, and if I was not part of this tour, I would probably have DNFed* it. It is not a bad book though, but it was not a book for me. However, if you like strong girls fighting the power in place, court intrigues, and a bunch of revolutionaries, I recommend you to check on Relic. Plus, I just found out the second book has been published this summer!
*Did Not Finish(ed)
So, in this little match, Gilded Wolves has my preference, even if I just started it. I like to see where I was last year vs. where I am now, and how my reading habits evolved. Though, as you can see, I’m still keen on reading fantasy novels! Till the end, my love.
Relic was my 32nd read of 2019, as The Gilded Wolves is my 36th of 2020! I was proud of how I did back then — I was getting back on reading books I liked, instead of feeling guilty for not reading books for school (I blogged about it last year on my old blog, and I may post this old post here too) — and I’m even prouder of how I am doing this year. The year is not over yet, and there are still so many books I’d like to read — you can read about those 8 books being my top priority for the end of the year by clicking here. We still have so many journeys to do together!
What are you currently reading, and what did you read last year?
Did your reading habits evolved between those two books?
