BLOGTOBER Day 24: 25 Before 25 update

I’m 25 in six months, which means it’s been six months since I shared my 25 Before 25 list.

For day 24 of Blogtober, I thought I’d give you a quick update on which books I’ve currently read… And I’m embarrassed that I have only read 4 out of 25 so far, which means I have 21 books to try to squeeze into the next six months!

At the moment I’ve read The Gunslinger by Stephen King, The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, Dark Age by Pierce Brown and A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.

Surprisingly enough, out of the four books I’ve read so far Dark Age ended up getting my lowest rating. I ended up giving it 3 stars, which made it the first of Pierce Brown’s books which I haven’t given 5 stars (and has made me very nervous for the next book in the series).

The Gunslinger was a 4 star read, while The Eye of the World and A Darker Shade of Magic both got 4.5 stars. I’ve already read the sequel to The Gunslinger and I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first one, but books two and three in the Wheel of Time series were both 5 stars.

I think that’s why I haven’t been reading widely across the list, because I wanted to carry on with the different series as I started them! I am meant to be reading The Maze Runner this month, but I don’t know whether I’m going to be able to get to it with only a week left in October. I think it’s going to be a challenge to get the other 21 read by my birthday, but I’m definitely going to do my best.

Out of my 25 Before 25 list, which one do you think I should read next?

See you tomorrow,
