Had a bit of a rough go with reading for much of the week. I did manage to do okay with audio and finished up Peace Talks and started my next read there. But for print I was incredibly distracted and didn’t make much progress at all until the weekend. Over the weekend I finished a book on Saturday and a book on Sunday so, huzzah!
I was having issues during the week because we’ve just had a lot going on with the renovation stuff and the contractor staying late, having to run over to my in-laws in the evenings to bathe, etc. And of course things are running behind schedule and our bathroom still isn’t finished–although it’s finally getting there! The end is in sight! Hopefully we’ll see them start on the kitchen sometime this week.
But also because I just wasn’t loving what I was reading. So….I have my first ever official DNF. I let this book go and it feels like the right decision. I will have a DNF review coming up for it, although not until November because this month’s reviews are booked and I have plans for October….
Speaking of, I’ve been trying to plan my reading (hahahaha, whyyyyyy) so that I can get a lot of stuff scheduled for October (yay Halloween month!) and November. I’ve been toying with the idea of doing NaNoWriMo again and if I get enough stuff scheduled here ahead of time I might try for it. We’ll see.
Anywho. On to my reading plans for this week~!
In audio I’m working on The Better Part of Valor by Tanya Huff. This is the second book in her Confederation series, which is a military sci-fi about space marines. It’s a fun series so far and I’m enjoying this one, there’s always some interesting characters popping up.
In print, I’ll be reading an ARC of a new YA fantasy, Mary Quirk and the Secret of Umbrum Hall by Anna St. Vincent. This is actually a pen name of one of my favorite authors so I can’t wait to check this one out. I have a feeling I’ll enjoy it a lot. 🙂
If I finish up Mary Quirk, then I’m not sure what I’ll be reading next. I have two more ARCs that I need to read for review so I might check out one of those or I might just do some mood reading. Same with audio–I have no immediate plans! We’ll see what happens. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
