I had a pretty good week in reading last week. I finished 2 books, 1 Romance and 1 SFF novel. I LOVED Written in Red by Anne Bishop and wound up reading it in about 4 days despite it being about 500 pages and reading another book in between. I loved it so much that I ordered the next two books in the series. So. I’ll have a review for that one coming up near the end of the month.
I’m actually making pretty good progress on the other books I’ve been reading, now that I find myself ‘in the mood’ once again. I’m hoping I can get back to only being in the middle of 2-3 books soon instead of 5-6. 😉
Friday I felt pretty ‘meh’ so I called out of work, did a little bit of blogging stuff, and had a general self-care day. I planned to get more reading done but I ended up organizing my old embroidery threads (that I’ve had since the 90’s and the days of friendship bracelets) and then going to the local drive-in theater with my husband. Saturday I slept most of the day and then Sunday was pretty quiet, working on my embroidery stuff and listening to an audiobook. Overall, a pretty good weekend. 🙂
I’m still working on The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty–I’m really loving it! Although I’m at a point in the book when major stuff is happening and I’m so scared for the characters and how things are going to end up. Am I going to cry at the end of this one? Only time will tell. 🙂 I’m hoping to finish this one up by end of day Monday since I only have 4 hours left but it may go in to Tuesday.
In print, I’m back to reading The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso and I’m finally into it. That break seems to be just what I needed. I’m over a third into the book so I should be able to finish this one up by the end of the week (finally!).
Next up in audio I’ll probably dive into Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim. I’m excited to see how this duology ends (as well as cross another series off my list as finished, yay!). This one isn’t that long (a little over eight hours I think?) so I think I may even be able to finish this one up this week as well. We’ll see!
If (no, Lisa! *WHEN*) I finish The Obsidian Tower I will probably be concentrating on finishing up the short story collection from Sarah Pinsker. I think I’ve got three left. Once I knock these two out then I’ll probably reward myself by reading more of The Others series by Anne Bishop. Hopefully I can get a lot of reading in because I really want to get back to The Others–I’m hooked! 🙂 What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
