This Week In Reading: Who Needs Sleep?

Well, I didn’t get much read at all last week. I ended up being really busy at work at the beginning of the week so not much time for audiobook-ing. And once I was in convention-mode….well, no reading happened. WHOOPS.

This week will be tight on time again. I have more housework and prep to do for my Tea Party Book Club meeting on Sunday and also I need to start writing for NaNoWriMo! Yikes! I don’t know how I’m going to squeeze reading time in there, maybe some before bedtime. Or maybe I can learn to live without sleep?

Back on deck is Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell. About a third of the way through this one and enjoying it so far. I do think the set up is taking a while, but confident the story is kicking into full-force.

I’m really lovingΒ An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris so far! The world is interesting and the story so far has taken some unexpected turns. Really looking forward to getting back to this story!

Still working my way through How to Fracture a Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen. Loving these retold fairy tales! Jane Yolen really is a master of her craft. This is one to be savored. ❀

Ok, so I have to add a fourth book to the lineup, as Weaveworld by Clive Barker is our book club pick! I haven’t even started this one yet and it’s something like 700 pages! That’s 21 hours on audio! Well, I sure do hope I finish this one before Sunday’s meeting, I’m cutting it close this time, lol. Oh boy.

I know you are all wondering how World Fantasy Convention was. Well, let’s just say it was AMAZING. I got to meet a lot of awesome people and hang out with some friends. There were so many great moments, too many for such a short summary. I’ll have a full post all about it (along with my massive book haul), hopefully this weekend. If I have time to write it. Crossing my fingers!

What are your plans for the week ahead? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

      It is really good! I just need time to read. I tried last night before bed but only got a few pages in before I crashed lol.
      Thanks! The tea parties are fun but a bit of work. πŸ™‚

    Yes, con post! Since I can’t go to cons myself because of location I like to live vicariously through those who do!

    I’m mostly going to focus on pleasure reads in November. There’s not going to be as many ARCs as in October and since I have one Bingo card completed I can relax a bit I think. So just whatever I feel like.

        One square, that’s good!

        I’m doing two, same as last year. One unrestricted, one themed (indie/generally underrated this year). But I’m not sure I’ll complete both, 16 squares until I’m done and I kept hitting slumps. Next year I’ll be doing just one and focusing on finishing series instead. Bingo has been terrible for starting and not finishing series…

      • waytoofantasy says:

        Yeah, the series thing… One of my goals this year has been to finish off some series. But I’ve started so many new ones. Hahaha…. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    My reading pace has been absolutely garbage this past two weeks so I’m empathize πŸ˜› I also have my final drivers road test on Wednesday and am kind of freaking out about that, so I don’t think my reading/blogging schedule will return to normal until next week. And the Con sounds amazing! Can’t wait to see your hauls! πŸ˜€ And hope you can get to Weaveworld on time!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      WFC was really fun, hope to have time to write a recap post soon.
      How to Fracture a Fairy Tale is great so far. Jane Yolan is a master at retold fairy tales, she’s been writing these for years. Like any story collection you will like some better than others, but definitely worth checking out. Jane’s previous collection published by Tachyon, The Emerald Circus, just won the World Fantasy Award.
