Aaaaaah! Why can’t I just concentrate on reading the books that I’m supposed to be reading???? It’s sooooo frustrating!
I still managed to finish two books–a historical romance and a fantasy romance. But none of them were the books I’ve been in the middle of reading and supposed to be finishing. Womp womp. I’m hoping that since I have off work three days at the end of the week, I’ll be able to get in some additional reading time.
I’m more than halfway through Dracula’s Child by J.S. Barnes. Although this one is quite gripping and I’m totally digging the style, it’s just not something that I’ve been in the mood for, I think. It’s not you, book, it’s me! Still forging on with this one read and hoping once again to finish up this week. *crosses fingers*
I’m super close to being finished the audio of The Shadowglass by Rin Chupeco. Really loving this final book in The Bone Witch trilogy, it’s pretty interesting seeing how this story is all coming together now.
I’m also going to try and squeeze in The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones. This is the last book that I had on my October TBR so trying to get it read. It should, hopefully, be a relatively quick read. Maybe.
So, those are once again my plans for the week! Let’s hope things don’t go too awry this time haha. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

I know what you mean, Lisa. I have some November releases I’m dying to start, but I have a whole pile of October books i should be reading first. The struggle is real!
Luckily I only have one November book and that one should be a quick read but I really need to get through this October eARC! I’m starting to feel a bit ridiculous LOL. Good luck to us both!
You really get into the Halloween mood with this string of books, albeit I must confess that only the concept of the bone houses stirs some interest in me. No vampires or necromancers for me when they’re not firmly on the antagonist side.
Well the vampires in Dracula’s Child are most definitely of the villainous sort! It’s very much in the same style as the original.
Dracula’s child isn’t a vampire?
Not really…at least that hasn’t been revealed so far.
I hope you have a great week!
I’m currently reading The Mad Ship and listening to Words of Radiance!
Those both seem fairly heavy, enjoy!
I completely threw out my TBR this week and picked a mood read. I’ve done a bunch of big sweeping fantasies and decided something I needed something “light.” Aurora Rising it is!
I’ve been doing a bunch of mood reading as well which is one reason I’m so slow to complete my TBR…
I’m actually in the middle of typing out my review of Dracula’s Child! I enjoyed it, but totally hear ya on the style. You definitely have to be in the right mood for it. I doubt I would have been able to finish the book had I picked it up a few weeks ago when I was so stressed out and having trouble maintaining focus. The writing emulates the classic and that dated style requires a lot of attention to follow!
Yes, exactly! Although I do enjoy the epistolary nature of the writing, at least it’s small chunks of the story at a time but it’s just so very many of them that it’s a bit tedious to get through at times.
I’m going to be starting The Wicked King by Holly Black hopefully tonight and I’m hoping to pick Fairest by Marissa Meyer back up. I’m hoping to finish both of those this week but we shall see.
Oh, The Wicked King was a fun book, my favorite of the series, I hope you love it! I keep wanting to check out some of Marissa Meyer’s stuff! Looking forward to your thoughts on those!
ahhh, mood reading is both a blessing and a curse isn’t it? i hope you can finish up your tbr, and enjoy all of the books💜
Haha, it really is! Thanks, Kaya! Hope you have a great week as well.
