Last week I had a fairly good week in reading again, finishing up three books. I read A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik, and The Spirit Eater by Rachel Aaron. These were all pretty fast-paced books so that helped me get through so many in what would otherwise have been a crappy reading week. Work was crazy all week so I only completed the one audiobook. I’m working on a non-fantasy audiobook right now (The Hiding Place by C.J. Tudor), but I’m not that far into it yet.
The good news is that I’ve refused to let myself fall behind in reviews again so I’ve been trying to write them as I finish up books before starting a new one, while also working on the posts in my drafts. I’ve got my drafts folder down to 7, which isn’t too bad!
Right now I’m trying not to plan too far ahead or give myself anxiety by having to read certain things and am letting my mood be my guide for the most part. There are still some outstanding reading obligations that I have but I’m fitting them in when I feel up to it. Mood reading, it’s the best.
So, this week I’ll be reading The Silver Queen by Josie Jaffrey. I LOVED the first book in the series and I’m currently enjoying this second one too. I’m hoping to finish up this one early on in the week. Vampires, yay!
After I finish up The Hiding Place, I’ll be starting The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin. The Fifth Season was my favorite book I read the year it came out. So much so that I pre-ordered both sequels. But I haven’t gotten around to reading them yet because I’m terrible and my TBR pile is huge. So, I’m trying this one in audio from my library, and we’ll see how it goes. 🙂
I’m not really sure what I’m going to pick up next after finishing The Silver Queen. I do have a bunch of February releases to get to still, and also those few reading obligations I keep mentioning. I guess we’ll see where my mood takes me!
What is everyone else reading this week? Leave me a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
