Hello all! Welcome to another Monday (weeeeeee!). Today my husband is calling the contractor to see if we can get an exact start date other than ‘maybe mid-week’ so that we can finish making preparations. I’ll admit I was supposed to work on things Sunday but then I didn’t feel all that well again so I loafed around, read, and watched more episodes of The Expanse with my husband (we’re now on season 3).
Anywho. Despite everything last week I did get some reading done, even though it was a little slower than normal (what with me going to bed at 830-930 almost every night). I finished three books, all SFF, and am halfway through a fourth. Not a ton of progress on my TBR or my 20 books of Summer or Bingo (even though one of the books I finished was on all of those lists, so I guess at least some progress was made). I doubt I’ll finish up my TBR for this month, but 2/3 isn’t bad! Since I’m mood reading things are very much dependent on what I feel like reading at any given moment.
So let’s see what I have planned for the week ahead!
First up, in print I am a little more than halfway through The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton. I’ve been interested in reading this one for a while but was inspired ton finally pick this up after reading a review on Zezee With Books. I’m enjoying this one so far even though it’s not exactly what I expected and the world in this one is….kind of fucked up to say the least. Looking forward to finishing this one.
In audio, I might as well try and finish up one more book on my Twenty Books of Summer challenge, so I’m going to check out The Spirit War by Rachel Aaron. I love Rachel’s books and she’s probably the author I’ve reviewed most on this blog–despite that I’ve had this one in my digital TBR for some time. This is book 4 in her Legend of Eli Monpress series, about a wily theif and rogue who is trying to get the biggest bounty on his head, and his crew of course. Can’t forget about the crew. 🙂
I should be able to finish up The Belles in a day or two, after that I’m not sure what print book will be next. I should pick up the last book on my August TBR list but I probably won’t be in the mood for that just yet. I’ll have to see what I feel like reading when it comes time to choose a book. Good news is I just added a boatload of books to my kindle app (not to mention the giant physical TBR staring me in the face) so I have no shortages of things to pick from! What are you reading this week? Leave a comment, I’d love to chat!
