Well, I had another fantastic reading week last week and finished a total of five books–three historical romances and two SFF books. I’m making some headway on my February TBR pile but I’ve also received a couple of new books for review so I’m feeling all panicky about managing my time to get all of these read. Stresssssssss. I didn’t do much reading this weekend, but I’m ready to get started again this week and check some more books off of my list.
For some reason I’m still reading A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer. I made very little progress last week because I was in the mood for some other books instead, it seems. I really hope to get back to this book this week and finish it up. So far I’m enjoying it, even though we’re spending time with different characters from the first book.
Next up, I finally started my reread of Dune by Frank Herbert in audio! I haven’t read this book in about twenty years so I’m surprised how much I remember and how easily things are coming back to me as I listen. Also, the audio experience is quite interesting on this one as it’s a cast recording and there are some neat background sounds and such.
I started Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead last week in ebook thinking I could sneak some reading in now and then at work. This one is proving harder to get through than I thought it would be! I really don’t like the POV character that much, she’s on my nerves, so reading this is not a pleasant experience. But I have to get through it for bingo, no time for another book as I have limited time at this point. I’m hoping things improve.
If I get through these I might keep reading from my TBR pile or I might work on one of the ARCs I have received. We’ll see how things go. I might also sneak another romance novel in there somewhere if I can. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
