This Week in Reading: Space Opera Hugs, Chaos Mages, Norse Gods, and Swashbuckling

Well, I had a great week in reading last week despite being somewhat busy. I’m back, huzzah! I finished two audiobooks and two print books and started a new audiobook and print book. I do have one book left from last week that I’m finishing up, but everything else on my list this week is new and shiny! Yay, progress!

First up I’ll be finishing up Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers. I love the Wayfarers series so much, you guys. These books, even when they have sad parts, always feel warm and comforting. Like a hug. A space opera hug. Yeah. I really need more space opera hugs in my life.

Next up in print I have a review request, Clock’s Watch by Michael Reyes. I don’t know much about this one except that it’s an anthology featuring a Chaos Mage. It sounds really intriguing to me and it should be a pretty quick read. Looking forward to checking this one out and seeing what it’s all about.

In audio I’ve started The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris. Just picked this one up during the latest audible sale and I’m really looking forward to it! It sounds like a fun book – I love mythology and the characters within those stories, always interesting to see what people have done with them. This one should be a pretty quick listen!

Last up is Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell. I’ve actually had this on my ‘want to read’ list for a while now and have just never gotten around to it. I picked it up during a previous audible sale (they get me every time!) and I’m looking forward to checking it out. I hope it has lots of swashbuckling.

So, that’s what my plans are for this week. Depending on how much time I have I may be able to start a third audiobook, but not sure because my work schedule will be uncertain near the end of the week. We’ll see what happens!

What is everyone else reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you. Happy reading!

    1. I loved The Gospel of Loki! Finished it this morning. Turns out audiobooks are good listening while preparing for tea parties so I got a good chunk in ove the weekend. Such a fun book!

  1. Sounds like a great week! I have a copy of Louis L’Amour’s Frontier Stories that I need to read in a week and get back… research for some upcoming stories of mine, plus sometimes I just want a good yarn. Next to that is a copy of Snow Crash, one of those books I started in the mid-90s and always meant to finish but never quite got around to it. There are a few large books on the horizon, but I’ll tackle those next week.

      1. You would probably like Anathem. The ending is, well, decent, but the world-building and story and characters carry a lot of weight for that book. Plus I got to see him read from it back when it came out ten years ago.

  2. I hope Traitor’s Blade has a lot of swashbuckling in it! Swashbuckling is the best! I am currently reading Eligible and Listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on Audiobook! I hope this week is as good as the last for you!
