Hi all! Guess what??? I finally finished a print book for the first time in what feels like weeks (although it’s probably only been about two or two and a half but still!). The worst is that I loved the book, but still had issues with finding the motivation to read at all. Hopefully I’ll be able to read this week! *fingers crossed* Anywho, I enjoyed The Girl With No Face a lot and hope to have a review up soon-ish.
I feel like I’m still really behind on reading, and I’m definitely behind on blogging stuff, but it looks like I’m holding it together so it’s all good, right? Heh.
Anywho, finally a couple of new books on my list this week!
First up, I’m going to be reading Master of the World by Edward Willett. This looks like an interesting book and I’m very much looking forward to diving into it. This is one where I don’t have any expectations so I think whatever I find will be a surprise, and hopefully a delight!
Next up is Dreams of the Dark Sky by Tina LeCount Myers, still have this one on my list but was pushed back slightly due to all my reading issues in the last couple of weeks. Enjoyed the first book, looking forward to the sequel. 🙂
In audiobook-land, I’m currently in the middle of The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. I’m really loving this book so far. The story within a story, worlds within worlds. The style of storytelling is fantastic, so is the prose. Hoping to finish this one up early in the week.
Next in audio will be Slayer by Kiersten White. This is a novel that takes place in the Buffy universe and I’m reading it for my media tie-in square for my r/fantasy book bingo card (I added an extra layer to the challenge by trying to do all vampire themed books). Hoping I have fun with this one! It’s a pretty short listen so I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish it up by the end of the week and move onto my next book, whatever that will be.
So, those are my plans for this week. Hoping I can make good on them. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

I feel so far behind too. I have an ARC that released September 3rd I’m only about 25% of the way through, Quichotte by Salman Rushdie, I have an egalley I still need to start that released Sept 17, I have two books to get through before the end of September for a readathon I’m doing, about 40% of the way through that, and another book that releases Oct 1 I haven’t even started.
Trust me- I feel your pain. Just do what you can and read/listen to whatever is grabbing you the most!
I have a couple of books I was sent for review, unsolicited, which I still feel obligated to even though I didn’t ask for them. And one ARC that is about a week behind. So not too bad as far as obligations but my own self-imposed goals…..lol.
Thanks! Definitely still trucking along as best as I can. 🙂
I’ll bet January is good in audio, I’m excited to hear your thoughts. Also glad to hear you enjoyed The Girl with no Face. I’m reading Ormeshadow and will probably finish it today. I’m loving it so far😁
It is very good in audio! I might buy a regular copy at some point still because the cover is so pretty lol.
I haven’t heard of that one, looking forward to your thoughts on it!
I’ve been hearing amazing things about the audiobook of the ten thousand doors of january, I think I will pick it up at osme point as well!
I’m currently reading lord of the flies and I’m listening to heart of iron!
It’s very good! I’d definitely say check it out if you get a chance. 🙂
Lord of the Flies! That brings back memories .looking forward to your thoughts on those two.

I love the ten thousand doors of January so I’m super pleased to hear you’re liking it so far. Great update :))))
Thanks! It’s been a great read, hoping to finish it up tomorrow. 🙂
I’m so keen to try Ten Thousand Doors is January but with my TBR overflowing I think I’ll ONLY get around to it in Jan 😂 how is the audiobook though? I might try that instead to get to it sooner! lovely post! 💙 Jen
Hah, I know what you mean. There are so many books I want to read, but only so much time and my TBR pile is quite large too. The audio for this one is good! I’m enjoying it. 🙂
I can’t wait to read The Girl and hope you’re still loving Thousand Doors.
Girl was really good, I think you’re going to have fun with it! I am loving Ten Thousand Doors too–it’s lovely. 🙂
Reading book 3 of Harry Potter!
That sounds fun!
It does look like you are holding it together! And yay on finishing a print book! Sometimes its the little things 😀
Thanks, I’m trying not to have disruptions here at least lol. I guess I’m doing an okay job at that. 🙂
