Last week I had pretty slow progress with reading but still managed to finish two books (mostly over the weekend). THE DRAGON REPUBLIC WAS SO GOOD, Y’ALL. Okay, that’s not my official review, of course, that will come later, but oh my goodness, this book nearly destroyed me for the weekend, it was so good. Luckily, I bounce back from book slayings pretty fast, phew! 🙂
Saturday night my husband and I went down to DC to see a band we love play at a club. We had a fantastic time, it was great seeing Holy Ghost! again (music is so much better live, even electronic music), and I even danced (well, swaying and kind of nodding my head and bouncing a bit counts as dancing, right?). I felt mighty hip, if I do say so myself. 😉
ANYWHO. Back to books. The rest of the weekend I spent reading, pretty much. We did go up to my friend’s comic book shop Saturday morning to pick up our comics that we haven’t picked up in since forever, whoops. But the rest of the week I didn’t get much reading time in, work was so blah that I didn’t even get much audiobook time. Welp. Here’s to a new week with new opportunities!
Last week in audio I started The Defiant Heir by Melissa Caruso. This is a series I really want to finish and I needed a relatively short audiobook to work in while waiting for my library hold. Under normal circumstances, I would have finished this last week, but work was just not good for audiobooking much last week. I’m half-way through this one and I’m sure I’ll be able to finish it up in a couple of days, three at most.
MY LIBRARY HOLD FINALLY CHECKED OUT, WOOO. Okay, so obviously after I finish The Defiant Heir, I’ll be listening to Touch by Claire North. I have a couple of friends who are die hard Claire North fans so I’ve been trying to read more of her stuff–absolutely loved The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August–I’m really looking forward to this one!
Next up is The Spec Set by Taya Okerlund. This one is a review request but it honestly looks right up my alley so I’m feeling pretty good going into it. I desperately need to catch up on review requests! Right now I’m at 6, if I could halve that, I’d probably start feeling a lot less stress. 🙂
And finally, if I have time then I’ll be starting A Song For a New Day by Sarah Pinsker. This is an ARC and while I don’t have to read it quite yet, I’ll admit I’m really excited for this one so I’m jumping in asap.
I’ll probably also try and squeeze a romance novel in somewhere, because I’m me, so we’ll see how things go! Hopefully I’ll get a little bit more reading in this week than last week. What are your reading plans this week? Leave me a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
