Well, last week my reading progress was SUPER SLOW during the week. Mainly because I, uh, started watching Mozart in the Jungle on Monday night and then marathoned all 40 episodes by Friday night, at 1am. So….yeah, not much time for reading, WHOOPS. Somehow, however, I still managed to finish four books. Mainly by cramming in some reading time this weekend. And also thank goodness for audiobooks! And also thank goodness I was already most of the way through two of these so it’s really like I read two and a half books instead of four. Still, how I managed to accomplish any reading at all I have no idea. (Oh yes, total neglect of all housework and projects and barely keeping up with blogging, ahahahahahahahaha. Ahem.)
This week will be super busy as I’ve REALLY got to catch up on blogging. And then I have Balticon this weekend (our local SFF convention). It’s a four day convention so, as I most likely won’t have much time for reading or blogging, I’m trying to get as much pre-scheduled as possible. That’s my goal anyway.
I’ve got three books on my list for this week, but I expect I’ll only be able to get through two or maybe even one and a half, but we’ll see how things go. Mist, Metal, and Ash by Gwendolyn Clare–I really hope to get through this one during the week because I enjoyed the first one quite a bit! Also, she’s a somewhat local author and will be at the convention, hoping to get this one signed while I’m there. Fog Season by Patrice Sarath is another sequel I’d like to get to soon because I enjoyed the first one. I’m really trying to read my sequels and be good about my ‘catch up on and finish series’ reading goal, but I admit I’ve been terrible about it so far this year. Last up is A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine. I have this out on audio from my library but I also picked up a copy to take to Balticon with me to get signed (hopefully).
So, that’s my week ahead. We’ll see how things go, as per usual. What are everyone else’s plans for the week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
