Hi everyone! Despite feeling very ‘meh’ still, I managed to get a lot of reading in. I finished up FOUR books over the past week. Of course, two of them I was almost finished going into the week so it’s not quite as impressive as it sounds, but I’ll take it anyway. I guess I’ve been in a ‘let me just read and forget about everything else’ type of mood over the last week. Which is good for my reading but bad for every other obligation I have in life. I’ll be happy to strike a balance again but in the meantime–books! Anywho. I finished four books–two adult fantasy, one ya fantasy and one ya historical romance retelling of Little Women. All in all a productive week in reading if nothing else.
This is the last week of the month and I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for. I probably should concentrate on the last book I have listed on my January TBR that I haven’t yet gotten to…but as much as I love Becky Chambers, am I in the mood for that right now? Ah mood reading. It’s great! Except for when you can’t figure out what exactly you’re in the mood for.
Turns out when you can’t figure out what mood you’re in–just work on your list. So that’s what I’m doing. I’m excited for The Galaxy, and the Ground Within. I’m a HUGE fan of Becky Chambers’ work and a little bit scared because I love each book more than the last and what if that ends at some point? I’m bound to be disappointed eventually. Maybe that’s what’s causing my hesitation to pick this one up despite my excitement for it. Hmmm. Anyway, I’ll try my hand at this one this week and if I decide I’m not in the mood for it then I’ll put it down and try something else, so I guess we’ll see how it goes!
Next up, in audio, I’m getting a head start on my February TBR and diving into A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir. I’ve had a lot of fun with this series over the years and I can’t wait to see how it concludes. The previous book left off on a huge cliffhanger and I’m all anticipation over here. The audio for this is 17 hours long and it took me three weeks to read my last audio book which was several hours shorter sooooooooo, I’m thinking I’ll finish this one up by the end of next month at my current rate. The only bad thing about my new extremely short commute! It’s probably a good thing I’m getting a jump start on this one.
Not sure if I’ll get to anything else this week but you never know. My mood could turn on me or I might get through the Chambers’ book really fast. Only time will tell. What are your reading plans this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
