For week 2 of July 2018, I am combining all kinds of readathons to see what will feel good at that moment. Honestly, if I can read anything, I’d be content.
Tome Topple (Week 2)
I am going to continue with The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson and Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. The stories are somewhat slow-paced but remain satisfying in terms of character development and plot.
I have a copy of the first dragon book by Naomi Novik. It’s obviously time to read about an alternate history of wars with freaking dragons. This is an excellent overlap with a readathon taking place this week aptly called #becausedragons.
Next, I want to tackle some sci-fi.
Fantasy/Mystery + Sci-Fi
Storm Front by Jim Butcher, which is the beginning of the Dresden Files, is on my radar for this week. Harry Dresden sounds like a cool dude to follow in a story. Needless to say, I think his books will be fun. I really hope I can read them soon.
In addition, I want to give Garth Nix’s Mister Monday a shot as well. I am not sure if I had read this book in college or if I have only sampled it in the library. All I recall is that I wanted to pick it up back then. I mean, look how wise it is.
“Sometimes it is easier to see the light when you stand partly in the darkness.” –Garth Nix, Mister Monday
As I write this post, I had started Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. My life will never be the same because I am enjoying this book immensely.
I like this quote by Tamora Pierce because it reminds me of my erratic moods and subsequent inability to commit to completing my TBR in a given week.
Listen to this legend talk, ” Every now and then I like to do as I’m told, just to confuse people.”
Who knows if I’ll be able to finish this list of books. I am intrigued by these books and, so far, they seem to be easy to enjoy. We shall see.
Do you have any exciting stories you can’t wait to get to? Let me know all about them in comments.
