Hey all, hope your weekends were grand. Mine was pretty good. Celebrated my anniversary, went shopping, enjoyed the Spring weather, tried to be pretty chill, and FINISHED READING THE TWO BOOKS I’VE BEEN READING FOREVER, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
You don’t know how excited I am that I got through these books, finally. *crying* Does this mean my slump is over finally? I don’t know but I sure hope so because my TBR pile is growing quite large again. I need to start getting through some of these. *glances at TBR cart which is currently overflowing onto the end table*
For physical books this week I’ll be starting A Conjuring of Assassins by Cate Glass. This is the second book in her Chimera series and I’m quite looking forward to it as I had a lot of fun with the first book. Cate Glass is a pen name for Carol Berg and I’m a fan of her work and she loves to put her characters through the ringer–I like to be along for the ride. 🙂
In ebook format I’ll be reading A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking by T. Kingfisher. This will be my second Kingfisher book and I’m hoping I love it. If the humor comes through in this one then I think I’ll be good with it.
In audio I started listening to The Odyssey translated by Emily Wilson. Bonus–this is read by Claire Danes who has been one of my favorites since the 90’s. I’ve had this one in my queue for a while, picked it up when some of the other r/fantasy mods were talking about how they loved this translation. I guess I’m just on a reading newer translations of really old classics kick right now–first Beowulf and now this!
Those are my plans for this week! I’m working on finishing off my March TBR pile and then next month I have some review books to get to. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
