This Week in Reading: A Bit of a Break From SFF


Well, I read A LOT over the last week but most of it was NOT SFF, but instead Romance. Sometimes one just needs a bit of a break from their preferred genre. ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually, several of the romances also had some speculative fiction elements so I’ll probably do some mini-reviews of them here at some point.

Anyway. Because of my break I haven’t made much progress with my books from last week. Whoops! I did manage to finish up The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl by Theodora Goss though, so at least that’s one down!

I just started The Will and the Wilds by Charlie N. Holmberg last night and I haven’t made it very far in (just a few pages) because then it was late and I wasn’t feeling well so I went to bed early. But, I like what I’ve read so far.

I’m not very far into Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger either. The narrator has a higher pitched voice which is making listening to this one a challenge for me as I keep unintentionally tuning it out as background noise. I’m going to try slowing the audio down and see if that helps. I may have to start it over as I’m really lost as to what’s going on but the bit that I’ve gleaned so far has me intrigued in regards to the world this takes place in. This is a longer than average book for me so I probably will be reading it into next week.

I’ll probably read some more print books this week other than the Holmberg but I don’t have any plans as to which. Might be some more romance or might be some other SFF books, not sure, we’ll see where my whim takes me. I do have one other eARC that I need to get to in early January, but we’ll see if I dive into that this week or next.

Those are my plans, such as they are. Like always, we’ll see if I can stick to them. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

        I really enjoyed his Deathstalker series but feel perhaps his dialogue and character development in this one is not that great. Characters just stink of cliche. But, despite that, its an addictive read and I’m enjoying it.

      I feel like she’s just been releasing books left and right lately, wow! Ahahahaha, I know what you mean. I’m going into the new year still kinda playing catch up, but hopefully will get some mojo back and catch up by the end of January. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Steel Crow Saga (which I read hardcopy) definitely took me a little bit to sort because there are three or four countries that have all been fighting over the past few decades and have been in both power and subjugation at different points of history, so tracking which character belonged to which country and who hated who because of their countries took a bit. Once you get over that hump it moves along great!

    I have no idea what I was reading when this was posted. My reading has definitely took a dive for the past couple of weeks, and my blogging and blog hopping. I had a couple of weeks holiday – of course I now have a lot of catching up but it’s all good ๐Ÿ˜€
