Hello all! This past week I four books – one romance, one military sci-fi, one paranormal cozy mystery, and one YA fantasy. At least I had a bit of variety LOL. So, overall, a really great and productive week in reading.
Still working on planning out my October and November (almost all is planned, just have to do a bit more reading for reviews) so that I can, potentially, join in NaNoWriMo in November. (It also depends if I’m in the creative mood or not but that’s a whole other issue hahaha.) Either way, my plans are coming right along and I’m fairly ahead on blogging and that feels fantastic. This is what happens when I channel my anxiety, apparently.
In audio this week I’m reading Redshirts by John Scalzi. This is one of my picks for 2020 r/fantasy bingo and I also think it will be a good one to read now so I can have more reviews for Sci-Fi month in November. 😉 But! I’m also excited to read more Scalzi because I’ve only read his two Lock In books so far.
In print I’m working on Dracula’s Child by J. S. Barnes. I have an eARC of this one and I’m looking forward to it because I love Dracula and all things vampire. It’s also prep for spooky month coming up soon! Also, isn’t the cover for this fabulous? If I like this one I might have to get a copy for my shelves…
Not sure if I’ll get to any other books this week. Dracula’s Child is a bit of a tome and even though Redshirts is short it’s been slow going with audio books lately. We’ll see what happens though–sometimes I surprise myself! What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

Can’t wait to hear more about Dracula’s child 🤓
I’m very interested to see how it goes. I’m hoping it has that gothic feel like the original but we’ll see. 🙂
I need to learn to channel my anxiety like this 😅 So far it’s only served to help me procrastinate even more! Haha. Dracula’s Child looks good so hope you enjoy that one! Hope you have another great week of reading ahead 🙂
Usually it makes me procrastinate too but I’ve been feeling so restless the energy had to go somewhere…lol.
Four books is amazing. And I was eyeing Dracula’s Child but I just have too much to read right now, so for now I’m saying “no”, lol.
I don’t have a ton of ‘required’ reading on my plate right now, just 3 eARCs so I was good with taking this one on especially because vampires haha. It’s so hard for me to pass on vampires. 😉
Looks like you had a good week! I’m about to start Queen of Volts, and still listening to The Way of Kings 🙂
Enjoy your reading!
Thanks, it was pretty good. 🙂
Looking forward to your thoughts on both of those! Have a great week, Evelyn!
What a productive and varied reading week you had, Lisa! I hope you enjoy Dracula’s Child 🙂
Thanks, Kal! It felt productive. 🙂
I really need to catch up/finish Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King and I’ve started Highland Fire by Veronica Sattler but I’ve found myself in the mood to binge watch Bones instead of read so that’s what I’ve been doing.
Good luck, Misty! I hope you have a great time reading this week and that your slump is over.
oh wow, dracula’s child sounds SO cool??? i can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!
It does sound cool! Getting a bit of a late start on it but hopefully will have some thoughts on it soon. 🙂
There’s always room for another vampire book on my TBR list so will be interested to know what you think of Dracula’s Child.
Hah, I know what you mean–I’m always reading vampire books so was happy to check this one out. 🙂
Have fun with Redshirts! I loved that one and I hope you enjoy it too! 🙂
I’m really enjoying it so far, definitely have chuckled a lot. 🙂
You did great!! And good luck in participating in NaNoWriMo!!
Always interested in vampire books so look forward to your thoughts on that one.
Me too, I was super excited to learn about this one. Unfortunately I hit a bit of a slump last week so I didn’t start it yet.
