This Week in Reading: Finally Getting Back on Track

Last week I had a GREAT week in reading. I had a lot of time to audiobook and over the weekend I did a readathon, so I managed to finish quite a few books. I finished up My Lady Jane, In An Absent Dream, and White Stag all on audio! I also started my Discworld read and finished up The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett. So far, keeping up with new releases, but I’m sure that will change shortly (there’s no way I can keep up with February’s books, haha).

During the readathon I read three books I’d been given for review purposes Mage Against the Machine (finally), Smoke & Summons, and Windcatcher. Looking forward to writing my reviews on these and sharing my thoughts with you all! I think the readathon was a huge success–managed to get through some backlogged review books! I think once I get through three of four more, I’ll be mostly caught up and feeling a lot better, phew!


This week I’m listening to Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman. I started this one over the weekend while shoveling snow and doing some laundry (I really tried not to stop the readathon, haha). So far, I’m really enjoying it! Hoping to finish this one up by mid-week because The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi comes out this week and I pre-ordered it from audible, woot!

As far as print, right now I’m working on an ARC of Appropriately Aggressive: Essays About Books, Corgis, and Feminism by Krista D. Ball. The cool thing about a lot of the essays is that they were originally posted to reddit’s r/fantasy community and I lived them first-hand. It’s exciting to see them all collected here with some new material as well. I’m a third of the way through this and it’s not super long so after I finish this up, not sure what I’ll be reading next but I have some other review requests I have to get to so I’ll be using that as my pool of books until I get relatively caught up. πŸ˜€

So, that’s my plans! What is everyone else working on this week? Leave me a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

    I’d be interested to see what you think of Tess of the Road. I liked some parts but by the end I didn’t like Tess much, either I didn’t like her or I didn’t like the story…something turned me off. I forgot so I gotta reread my review.

        I was iffy with it too when I started so I understand.
        I liked the Seraphina book though, not so much Shadow Scale but I enjoyed reading it.

        Now I’m even further in and liking it again. All I can say is when I’m done I am definitely going to have thoughts on this one haha.
        I think I actually liked Shadow Scale a bit more than Seraphina iirc, but I know I’m in the minority on that. πŸ˜€

    I really liked Tess of the Road, so I’m glad to see you’re enjoying it so far! I’m really excited about Krista D. Ball’s essay collection as well, she’s the best. Have a great week!

      Thanks! I still do have a few more books to do before I’ll feel relaxed but I’m making progress. Hope you get the chance to catch up soon!
      White Stag–one of those books I’m gonna have to ruminate on. I liked it, but I definitely have some thoughts.
