This Week in Reading: More of the Same and a Couple New Things

Last week started out well, and I got the first two books off of my list read with no issues, but then I got distracted by other books. I loved Strange Practice so much that I had to immediately read the sequel so Neverwhere got pushed back. Also, I received a last minute ARC of Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven so I pushed that in front of Rabbit & Robot (since the Draven book comes out this Tuesday). Then I went to the library to return Rogue Protocol and to pick up Magic Triumphs, the final Kate Daniels book, and picked up a second book as well even though I have two others from the library that I still need to read. And then, despite wanting to read Magic Triumphs, I started a fantasy romance novel by Melissa McShane over the weekend because reasons (ok, but this worked out well for me because I accidentally stumbled over a book that filled my ‘novel featuring a library’ square on this year’s bingo card).

I really do think my eyes are bigger than my stomach here and I don’t know why I keep taking on more and more books to read but….oooooh shiny!

So, yeah, here we are again. I’m just going to do a bullet pointed list this week of what I plan on reading because since I binge read a bunch of stuff last week I now have a bunch of reviews to write, weeeeee!



  • Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (I actually started this but am only an hour in)
  • Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews (I get to finish a series, yay!)
  • Small FavorΒ  by Jim Butcher (trying to get through all of Dresden this year, we’ll see!)

We’ll see how this week goes because I won’t have a lot of free time this coming weekend since I’ll be spending most of it at the book festival.

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

    Sounds like we have similar problems, and I swear I have about five review books that all come out next week on October 2nd! I’m reading We Sold Our Souls right now and its amazing 😁

    I’m continuing my very unproductive process of reading the first 10% of a book and changing my mind, starting another, then switching again, and if I go back to one I started before, restart and re-read that 10%….. one of these days I’ll settle on something.

    Nothing wrong with being distracted! That’s why all my reading plans are more like “ideas” on what to read, because I can’t follow a set reading list to save my life! This week I’m hoping to take advantage of a rare lull, using it to catch up on some summer releases. But who knows, I might get tempted by something new and shiny πŸ˜€

      Well, this is also why I generally don’t make solid plans until the week before, but I still get distracted, lol. It’s all good though. πŸ™‚ Lulls are nice! I still have a bunch of summer releases to catch up on myself. But you know, shiny. πŸ˜‰

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Oh, I am jealous you’re reading Ladies Guide! Yeah, I keep wavering between books. Part of the problem is that I *did* go an ARC request spree the other night, haha. Thank goodness two of them don’t come out until next year. πŸ™‚

    Hope you enjoy the book festival. I was hoping to make to the Bmore Book Fest too, but this weekend looking like it will be unpredictable.
    I’m currently reading The Book of Hidden Things and am loving it!! I’m so hooked. Would have completed it in 2 days if I didn’t have to go to stupid work.

    Thats exactly why I don’t even bother to try an plan out my reading schedule πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I am too easily distracted by shiny objects πŸ˜‰ Good luck with your reading this week and have fun at the festival!!

    Well, I try to make plans, and sometimes they stick, but this week is a perfect example of ‘the best laid plans’. My reading has been all over the place and I just keep starting and stopping different books. Very restless indeed.
