This Week in Reading: Moving Right Along

Well, I finished TWO fantasy novels last week. Somehow. At the beginning of the week my brain decided one book wasn’t enough and started a second print book and spent the week trading off on them each day. Which made for slow going through each of them but I finished them both in the end so phew! Moods are weird. I’m also mostly finished up my current audio book so I’ll be starting a new one this week as well, hopefully tomorrow if all goes according to my plans. *muahahahahahah*

Ahem. So this week I’m once again attempting to read TWO print books and work on an audio. Mostly because a review book arrived in the mail and it looks awesome and also my digital library loan arrived at the same time. So. I think at least one of them will be a quick read though so we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully as well as last week. The only problem with all this reading is that I’ve once again started falling behind in my reviews (currently have three in drafts, soon to be four) and if I don’t get a hold on that really soon then they’ll start piling up again. So I also have to make time for that sometime this week. In between reading and doing the chores I’m behind on and having a full time job. Hahaha. I’m funny. πŸ˜‰

First up in the queue is Wings of Fury by Emily R. King. This is a book based on Greek Mythology so of course I’m all about that. Very much looking forward to checking this out especially as this author is new to me!

Next up is my library loan, Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas. This is one I’m super hyped for as quite a few of my fellow r/fantasy mods have loved it and have talked me into checking it out (let’s face it–I didn’t take much convincing as it’s been on my radar and I’m also easily talked into books haha).

In audio this week I’ll be reading Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while but just haven’t gotten around to it. Then I picked up a copy on audio right before my audio book productivity dropped and now I’m trying to work on my audio back list. So going to check on this one first since it’s not too long and I think I’ll be able to finish it up before the end of the month *crosses fingers*.

So that’s what I’m attempting this week, we’ll see how it goes! I’m hoping that I’ll breeze right through one or both of the print books but only time will tell. I also have all those chores around the house so….I don’t know how much reading time I’ll get this week. Hopefully enough! (but also I need to make sure my husband can find his clean clothes which are currently in a giant pile so….) What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

    “I’m also easily talked into books” *slides more books towards you* But yeah, I hope you enjoy Cemetary Boys! πŸ˜› I think the initial hype got to me and the story turned out to be slightly different than what I’d imagined, but I loooved Julien. And oh my god Lisa, I have so many reviews that are just sitting in my drafts. So. MANY. I mean, I should be posting them, but I’m working on a move to self-hosting right now and I was going to wait until I’ve finished with it. Except….I’m not sure what “finished” looks like…. Why is is this so complicated.

      LOL. On the one hand, have you seen my large TBR pile? On the other hand, yes I will always take recommendations. πŸ˜€
      I just finished Cemetery Boys and I really loved it! I kind of figured out all the twists fairly early on but the characters were so lovable that it didn’t matter too much. πŸ™‚
      Oh, good luck with the self hosting! I had been thinking about that for a while but it sounds like work. LOL. So instead I treated myself to paid WP for a year to just get rid of ads for a while. I may still switch over at some point…

    I’m almost always reading two print books at the same time, but I also don’t read them on any other medium, so it probably evens out. I always do a fantasy & a contemporary/nonfiction/middle grade/what-have-you at the same time, though, which is often a really nice break from intense fantasies. I’m reading Daughters of Nri right now, too, which is definitely intense, although my contemporary is Tyler Johnson Was Here, so not any less intense? I might be exhausted at the end of these two?

    Also, ahem, I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF CEMETERY BOYS!!!!!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      A lot of times I wind up reading two print as well because if I’m reading a physical book I’ll want to read in bed at night and ebooks work better for me with that so it just happens, although usually it winds up being one SFF and one Romance or something like that.
      I hope you enjoy both of those, even though they’re intense. Intense can be good!
      Cememtery Boys– I just finished it and I loved it! I’ll admit I figured all the twists out pretty early on but it didn’t make it any less enjoyable. The characters were just so damn wonderful.

    I really enjoyed Forest of a Thousand Lanterns but I never read the second half of the duology! One day I’m going to start blitzing through the YA duologies I have half finished…even if it means rereading book one…
