Well, I didn’t exactly stick to my plan last week, again. So that means I’m even further behind than I was before going into my new fall reading challenge, whoops. I’m also still SUPER BEHIND in blog stuff but oh well. I’ll…catch up eventually I guess.
I actually did get a lot of reading in last week though. I finished up an audiobook and then read nineteen volumes (NINETEEN!!!) of a manga, Yona of the Dawn, which I totally blame on Kaya @ A Fictional Bookworm. 😉 But honestly, have to thank her for highlighting this series, may have missed it otherwise and it’s exactly my type of thing. It’s got action, romance, fantasy elements, humor, political scheming, a little bit of reverse harem going on, backstabbing (sometimes literally), front stabbing, betrayal, terrific characters with sometimes tragic backstories, characters with terrific story arcs, characters who you don’t know quite what to think of because they did a bad thing but also seem like a totally good person and why???? Anywho, for a shoujo manga there are a ton of battle scenes and strategy and practicing with weapons and I’m really digging it, it’s been a looooong time since I’ve been this into a manga. I see there’s also an anime so I’m going to have to watch that now. RIP all of my free time.
Anywho, that’s pretty much why I didn’t get much other reading done, WHOOPS.
ONE DAY I WILL FINISH THESE BOOKS ARGH!
So, this week looks a lot like last week. We have once again, The Girl with No Face by M.H. Boroson and Dreams of the Dark Sky by Tina LeCount Meyers. I’m really hoping to finish both of these up this time. I just need to buckle down and stick to my plan.
I’m currently about a third through the audiobook of Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff. Loving being back in this world so far and I’ve giggled out loud several times while listening. I didn’t get as much listening time in as I would have liked last week, hopefully this week will be better.
Finally, a non fantasy related book. You Are a Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. I saw this one over on Zezee With Books and I thought, ‘Lisa, you could use that’ and decided to check it out from the library. Well, my audiobook hold came in so here we are! Looking forward to being a badass. 🙂
I also hope to get to, if possible (and I know I’m being ambitious), Master of the World by Edward Willett. I was generously given a copy of this by the publisher and I feel terrible for not getting to it yet as it comes out this Tuesday (tomorrow!!). I’m hoping to have a review up soon, in the next couple of weeks. This is also my last eARC from netgalley, so once I check this off I’ll be all caught up again, phew!
Those are my plans, let’s hope I can stick to them this time! What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
