Hello, hope you’ve all had a wonderful week! Last week I managed to finish 3 whole books! Now, the thing is, I’m not finding the joy in reading my usual SFF books. I just can’t find the mood. I have started re-reading The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso (one of my favorite reads of the last few years) and it just isn’t pulling me in. And I know it’s not the book because I love that book! It’s me.
So, I’ve just been letting friends from the r/fantasy mod team suggest me ridiculous looking SF romance books and I’ve been reading those instead. Now, normally I’d NEVER be able to get into a random book that someone else has picked out for me. But I think the encouragement and the ‘omg this looks so bad it could be good’ aspect has really pulled me in. Also, live-tweeting my reactions have given me new life.
So far I’ve read the first and second Ice Planet Barbarian books by Ruby Dixon and Alien Architect Needs a Nanny by Tasha Black. Not gonna lie, kind of read this last one for the cover alone because lol:
Anyway. My next read was also suggested by a friend from r/fantasy and I have to say, I’m really looking forward to it. The premise is hilarious and sounds crazy and the reviews have me intrigued. That book is Morning Glory Milking Farm by C.M. Nascosta. (Don’t ask what exactly is being milked….)
Anyway, I am enjoying my trip to crazy town. My husband said it doesn’t matter what I’m reading as long as I’m enjoying reading again and I think he’s right. I’m hoping that getting back into reading in whatever way will eventually translate into me reading other books again too. I have so many things piling up that I want to get to. Soon, hopefully! What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat.
