November has been tough in some ways, but I am busying myself as much as I can. So: READING is a fun thing. I have a TBR for this week and it is as ambitious as ever. Let’s do this.
Challenge fun times
This week is part 1 of the Tom Topple, where book folk read tomes (500 pagers). As such, I am going to attempt to read Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff this week. Perhaps I will not make it far, but the plan is to at least give it a shot.
If I do finish this one (which is highly unlikely, to be honest, but okay), I’d like to try starting The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness because, you know, I heard something terrible happens in this book. If it is not detrimental to the dog’s life, I should be (mostly) okay.
Yes, obviously, I don’t want to just read a huge book in one week. I’d like to try squeezing in some regular-sized books. Here are a couple of the ones I’m considering for the third week of November!
Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder should be a quick read, and it is a shorter book (compared to the tomes, anyway). I like Snyder’s writing and I am a fan of this story thus far. Yelena and Valek: I missed you! It’s time to see what happens to them next.
If I do manage to finish this (which is, like, miraculous at this point), I would like to read A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard. The first book in this trilogy was such a nice, quick read.
this is not realistic…
There’s a reason I get sorted into Slytherin often. I am ambitious. But, also, I have been trying to increase my reading intervals daily. The holiday season is a good time to cozy up and read stories in bed. It’s my ideal way to deal with stress. As Katniss Everdeen says, “there are worse games to play.”
