Well, this past week I just wasn’t that much in the mood for reading it seems. I did finish one book–the new historical romance from Courtney Milan!–and made some small progress on others. Part of it was mood (being hit hard with depression as we’re going into Fall as per usual), part of it was being busy (more chaos at the house due to renovation stuff), part of it was pure exhaustion (why am I always so tired lately?), part of it was just needing some time to veg out and do nothing (when I wasn’t working on organizing things over the weekend I was binge watching a Kdrama).
Maybe this week will be better for reading, maybe it won’t. I guess we’ll see what happens.
I didn’t make a huge amount of progress on Dracula’s Child by J. S. Barnes so far, but what I’ve read I’ve loved! It’s creepy and feels very much in tone with the original work. Plus! It’s also epistolary!
In audio I’m about halfway through A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan. This is so different! It’s kind of slice of life? Or just…stories of the lives of several generations of women in this family passing on their magic down the line. They’re all so different and interesting in their own ways.
I also started The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi last week. This is a YA fantasy and I’m enjoying it so far. I started it before I finished my other print book because it’s due back at the library soon.
That’s it for this week’s reading! I’m hoping I make better headway. If nothing else, I should definitely be able to finish up the audiobook and move on to my next one–The Shadow Glass by Rin Chupeco. 🙂 What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
