Well, last week I did at least finish a few things! I wrapped up Daughter of the Forest (loved it!) and How to Fracture a Fairy Tale. I also read two other books not on my list (a novella by K.J. Parker – The Devil You Know, and Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews) and started another book which I would have finished yesterday had I not got distracted by watching a new kdrama.
I also spent part of the long weekend cataloging all the new books I’ve gotten in the last couple of months and going through my giant stack of books on the stairs, seeing what I needed to put away and what needed to remain in my TBR pile. Then I hauled a bunch of books upstairs to be put away having all intentions to deflate my air mattress and reorganize my library, but that never happened because I started reading instead. Whoops. 🙂 At least things are now somewhat organized?
So I still have some review requests I need to get through but right now I’m working on some fast reads. I want to see how many books I can get through before the end of the year. This has already been my biggest reading year in…well, forever (if I don’t count that year I went through a box of 80 or 90 Harlequin romances in a month) and I kind of want to see how far I can go with it. So I’m going to be reading books I think I’ll enjoy and will be quick. Still have my review commitments so I’ll work them in and see how they go. Hopefully they’ll also be quick reads!
We’ll see how things go. Last night I started coming down with a soar throat and thought maybe it was just a fluke, but no. It appears I am sick. Woke up with it even worse and running a slight fever.
I also am terribly behind on reading everyone else’s blogs and need to spend some time catching up with everyone. (Why am I so behind on everything?)
So, these are my planned reads for this week. I’m already haflway through both Roar of Sky by Beth Cato and Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. Still hoping to get to Windcatcher by A.J. Norfield this week but it really depends what I’m in the mood for. Looking forward to Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa because I’ve heard so many great things about that one.
So, that’s my tentatively planned week. What’s everyone else reading? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
