Hello all and HAPPY JUNE! That’s right, we’ve made it to another month, let’s all remember to be kind to ourselves that we’ve made it through May because it was a tough one. ❤
Last week I spent a ton of time reading. Every spare moment I was reading! I stayed up late, I woke up early, I read at work (whoops) and pretty much whenever I could. I finished seven (wtf) books last week, 5 speculative fiction and 1 historical romance. Does this mean my ‘slump’ is over? Maybe? I think I’m just going to keep reading what I feel like for a while though, that seems to be doing the trick. It’s a shame because I do have an eARC that’s due this week too…but maybe I’ll be in the mood for it mid-week, who knows? 😀
I’m still in the middle or listening to Race the Sands by Sarah Beth Durst on audio. I had hoped to get further in with this one but I just didn’t spend a ton of time audiobooking–wasn’t in the mood tbh. But, what I’ve listened to so far I’ve very much enjoyed and am looking forward to continuing on with this one. I have a bit of a feeling I know the direction the story is going but we’ll see if I’m right. 🙂
In print I’m working my way through the Elemental Mysteries series by Elizabeth Hunter and am currently on The Force of Wind, book 3 in the series. This is a paranormal romance/urban fantasy series that is kind of like the love child of A Discovery of Witches and Twilight but….good? Okay, shade aside, I am really enjoying the series so far and I think the somewhat unique take on the vampires, having different ‘types’ that are associated with one of 4 elements (air, fire, water, earth), is really cool. (Now I’m wondering if I could get away with the first book for my ‘books about books’ r/fantasy bingo square as they spend so much time searching for lost books… hmmm.)
Like last week I’ll probably read some other things this week, it really all depends what I’m in the mood for and how much time I have. I’ll be going into the office 3 days this week (we’re still rotating for the next two weeks, thank goodness) so that may mean less time to get done things at home and still have time to read. Guess we’ll see! Maybe I’ll pick up my eARC or one of the other two books on this month’s TBR. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
