Well, here we are in a very bizarre timeline where’s there’s a global pandemic and a lot of us are being encouraged to work from home if we can and keep our distance from others. I have to say, as an introvert, I don’t have many issues with following such directions. Things are scary for a lot of people though and I’m trying to find some positives. I guess one of them is that I’ll probably have more time to read, so…yay? Although I don’t know about audio…
Anywho. Last week was a pretty good week in reading even though I had some issues concentrating. I finished two audiobooks–which sounds impressive but I was already 2/3 of the way through one and the second was less than 4 hours long. I also finished one print book, The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler, and will have a review for that up on Tuesday.
I didn’t get very far with The Scar by China Miéville yet, but I’m enjoying it so far. It’s weird, of course, which is my jam if done in certain ways. It started off a little too prose-y for me but shortly into it the characters kicked in and now there is some mysterious happenings so looking forward to getting back to this one. My only problem is I didn’t realize this was over 600 pages and thought it would be a relatively quick read. Whoops. I’m laughing really hard at myself over that one.
I’ve also started The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee. This book comes out Tuesday, officially! I’m really excited to be back in this world even though it hasn’t been long at all since I read the first book. For some reason reading a book about a magical plague during an actual world wide pandemic doesn’t bother me at all. Besides, there are scarier things in this series than plagues.
In audio, I’m just about to start Blood Lines by Tanya Huff. I had hoped to start on this one last week but I just had issues concentrating on audio, my mind kept wandering. I hope I don’t have the same issue this week. Also, I’ll be working from home so….that will be interesting. I don’t know how that’s going to work because I usually don’t listen to audiobooks when at home very often and I’m losing my commute listening. I guess we’ll find out how this goes!
This week will be interesting in a lot of ways, I’m sure. I’m just hoping I can get through these books! What will you be reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
