Friday Reads: Regency and Other Things

This week has been a bit rough for a lot of people for a myriad of reasons. Those feelings are valid. Remember you have only so much energy, attention, and time. You don’t have to justify to me how you are prioritizing these things. I guess what I ask is that you use what you […]

Friday Reads: Leaning Towards Fantasy

Possibly because of Brandon Sanderson’s announcement, I’ve been thinking more about fantasy. I also happened upon another couple videos Book Roast did about their new version of Magical Readathon. I hadn’t been playing close attention. Gia announced a mini-readathon recently about what gear you’ll use, March 14-20th. I don’t hate anything I’m currently reading but […]

Friday Reads: Magical Readathon Begins!

We aren’t that far into September so I’m not that far into these books but I’d still like to write about them. I also accidentally brushed the next volume of Karneval on my ereader so I ended up reading that today too. Gareki is so sassy and Nai is so adorable. It is quite dense […]

Friday Reads: Nebula First Impressions

I went deep into the Nebula Finalists this week. My library system has most of the books and a bunch of them got to my branch quickly. Piranesi by Susannna Clarke, Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar, and Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko were already in my to be read stacks, I just needed to bring them […]

Friday Reads: Mostly Magical

I’ve started my reread of Kushiel’s Chosen by Jacqueline Carey for the readalong hosted by Imyril. It has been interesting getting back into it because I know the solutions to the mysteries Ph├Ędre is trying to solve in the beginning. There is also a scene I’m not anticipating further into the book and I’m having […]

Friday Reads: Rereads, Fantasies, and a Contemporary

I’ve been enjoying my reread of Giant Days. The characters and situations make me laugh still. I started my next Tanith Lee read, Shadowfire. It’s the sequel to Birthgrave, which I still kind of remember. I’m slightly fuzzy on the details. I’m still reading Poisoned by Jennifer Donnelly and The Boy in the Black Suit […]

Friday Reads: Starting a Bunch of Books

I’ve been really enjoying starting books this month. And I may start more this weekend. This week I’ve been reading Wildlife by Fiona Wood and Spy Glass by Maria V. Snyder. And both have frustrated me a little. One is a third book and it feels repetitive. The other has some toxic stuff. But I’m […]

Friday Reads: Finally!

So I got Hollopox by Jessica Townsend and Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett this week. Two of my most anticipated releases. I’m also pretty excited to read Murder Lo Mein and The Other Side Of The Sky. I do like a variety. What are you reading this weekend?

Friday Reads: Snowy Weekend

It’s supposed to snow relatively hard in the mountains this weekend. There are so many things I want to read. But I’m still working on The Family Medici by Hollingsworth for Nonfiction November. I’m also progressing with The Ruins of Ambrai by Melanie Rawn and The Guns of Empire by Django Wexler. In winter, I […]
