This Week in Reading: Second, Third and Fourth Verse, Same as the First

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.

    I’m currently reading The Mad Ship and listening to Words of Radiance!

    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!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      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.

    • waytoofantasy says:

      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!
