I’ve actually had a fairly normal week in reading this last week. Even though I’m still working a rotating schedule in and out of the office (this might be our last week–we’ll find out Friday) and I had a full week of dealing with contractors and remodeling companies getting quotes for a bathroom and partial kitchen remodel we’re planning…I’ve managed to get in a pretty good amount of reading time. I’ve mostly been reading late at night, very early in the morning, and during the work day (audiobooks). My after work hours were spent binge-watching the new season of Queer Eye with my husband. 🙂
I managed to finish off four books–all speculative fiction to some degree or other. I finished up a series I was working on, read on of the worst books I’ve ever read, and had a ton of fun with a couple of new releases (the new Alyssa Cole sci-fi romance, The A.I. Who Loved Me, and the latest Vampire Knitting Club cozy mystery book by Nancy Warren). A pretty interesting week in books to say the least. 🙂
In audio I’m currently enjoying Crosstalk by Connie Willis. I started this one late last week and have been breezing right through it. This is kind of an addictive story so I’ve started my embroidery project (for some reason I thought I’d try my hand at embroidery because why not) so that I can listen to it at home while I have something to keep my hands busy. This is our HEA book club pick for June and I’m so glad someone suggested we go with this one because I’m really enjoying it~!
In print I’ll be starting The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso. This is an eARC that I am late on getting to and feel really guilty about especially because I was so excited for this book and then just wasn’t in the mood as the date approached. It’s tough being a mood reader right now. Thankfully this is also the last eARC I have and after this my review obligations are pretty much nil for a while. 🙂
I’m also working on reading some more shorts from Sooner or Later Everything Falls in to the Sea by Sarah Pinsker–our r/fantasy goodreads book club is reading this one and I thought I’d try and participate for once! I’ve already read a couple of stories from this collection but I wouldn’t mind rereading those as well…
Not sure what my next audio will be so I’ll probably take a look at my 20 Books of Summer list and pick one from there. We’ll see how things go! Mood reading is awesome. In print, I’d really love to get to the latest Ladies Occult Society book by Krista D. Ball which just came out a few days ago, I’m hoping I’ll have time to squeeze that in this week but it will be tight! What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
