This Week in Reading: Recovering From Reading Too Many Amazing Books

Guys. I had a really great week in reading last week. Well, it was a great week but I didn’t read all the books I was supposed to because, as per usual, I got completely distracted by other books again. WHOOPS.

So, I finished up The Kingdom of Copper and long story short, that book is AMAZING. Reading it was like being on an emotional roller coaster. Once I finished that up I listened to The Gilded Wolves and finished that one too. I liked that one quite a bit but didn’t love it as much as I thought I would, I definitely have thoughts on it. Over the weekend I listened to Look Alive Twenty-Five by Janet Evanovich (I love the Stephanie Plum books, they’re just so much fun. I can’t get enough of Stephanie burning things down or getting her car blown up every book. :D). I also read a romance novel, the new K.J. Charles book, Any Old Diamonds–I continue to be a fan!

So this weekend I was supposed to be working on reorganizing stuff in my house (I did get a little bit done–new bed arrived, yay!), catching up on reviews (nope), and finishing reading Sisters of the Fire (nope). Instead I spent the weekend reading The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. GUYS, I HAVE NO REGRETS. I totally got sucked into these books and now I’m in a bit of a book hangover (never fear, I’m sure it won’t last long). I totally get why everyone loves these books so much.



Well, gotta get back on track. Obviously on the table again this week is Sisters of the Fire by Kim Wilkins. I am determined to finish this book!

In audio I’ll be listening to King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. Really looking forward to diving back into this world.

Purls and Potions, the 5th Vampire Knitting Club book by Nancy Warren comes out on Wednesday! I’ll probably be able to squeeze this one in at some point because they’re such fun, quick reads.

I also still want to try and squeeze in The Light Fantastic since I didn’t get to it the other week and I don’t want to fall too far behind in my Discworld reading, but we’ll see what happens!

There are a couple of other books I’d LOVE to get to this week, but will most likely have to wait for later. I also still have some review requests in queue and I really need to start working on creating the 2019 r/fantasy bingo card. I’m so behind in everything, it feels like.

Oh, one other thing did happen this weekend, part of my reorganizing. My husband bought me one of those three tiered rolling carts for all the books in my TBR pile that have been sitting on the stairs and on various end tables around the house. Seeing them all together…my TBR is even bigger than I’d thought! Welp. Best get to reading!



So, that’s my plans for the week, we’ll see how it goes. What is everyone else reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

    I love the idea of those carts! Though I’d probably need like a fleet of them, haha. They look so handy though, and would make me feel like I’m strolling around in a library while pushing one around in my own home πŸ˜›

    Haha – love the trolleys. Something, something, something about the best laid plans..
    I love Holly Black – she’s the queen of the fae for me – I loved her earlier books, they’re the reason I love reading urban fantasy and fae stories.

      One of my friends has been reading Holly Black for years and has always been a huge fan so I’ve been meaning to check her stuff out for a while. I may have to check out her backlist!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Lol! Yes, well…I’m a sucker for those types of stories (The Cruel Prince). But it actually had a lot more politics and stuff in it that I wasn’t expecting!

      I definitely have thoughts on The Gilded Wolves. Hopefully will have a review up soonish. πŸ™‚

    I love your cart so much, I really need to pick one up for myself! I just finished reading The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson last night, and am currently reading/listening to Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (pray for me). Happy reading this week!
