I’ve noticed a trend that I only seem to do Currently Reading posts when I’m in reading slumps…
Yeah, I’ve hit another reading slump.
I actually got myself out of the slump for almost a whole month and a half! It was amazing. Truly. I never felt better.
But we’re back.
So as I suffer through this slump, I wanted to talk about Alexandra Christo’s latest book: Into the Crooked Place. I’m around 100 pages into it, and I already feel the need to talk about it.

It’s been a month since I last mentioned my reading slump… and yeah it’s still here. It seems to only be getting worse, which is making me wonder- at what point is it no longer a slump and instead just your life? I don’t know. These are questions I don’t want answered. Let me live in denial and think that this will one day end.
Despite my awful slump, I have been reading! I’ve currently been working on my ARC of The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’m halfway through (about 320 pages in) so I thought I would spend some time today discussing my thoughts so far!
I am officially in the longest reading slump ever. It’s been months. I’m dying.
Because of this awful reading slump, I wasn’t able to finish reading my ARC of We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizel by it’s release day. That said, I still want to talk about it, so now I will.
I’m about 100 pages in, and I want to go over some of my initial thoughts, first impressions, and predictions.
(Don’t worry, I’ll keep it spoiler free!)
Okay, onto the… well I can’t say review… impression? thoughts? Let’s just get started.
