What a week this was! My son was on a camping trip for 3 days and I felt really out of sorts without him here! It gave me and my husband a lot of time with or daughter though, so that was fun! This week my husband was away preparing for a big fishing tournament, and I was at home preparing for a scope……. which was no fun AT ALL! Luckily the scope itself wasn’t too bad! AND, as you’re reading this, i’m in Toronto at a bridal shower for my soon to be sister in law!!!! So freaking exciting! I love her to pieces and can’t wait for her to officially become a part of the family 🙂 But, because I was so busy, I didn’t finish a single book this week……
NOT A SINGLE ONE……
I came close though! I started Jade City and I’ll be finishing it really soon. It’s a dense read though….. worth it, but not a book you can fly through by any means. There’s so much world building, character building, plot, magic, clans…. it’s a lot to take in! But, like I said, it’s worth it!
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING:
NO – I’m not reading 3 books at once. I don’t have super powers lol. But with the Off The Grid readathon starting this Friday, these are the books I plan to read over the next week. I should be finishing Jade City by Fonda Lee very soon and then I plan to pick up A Duke By Default by Alyssa Cole or a little bit of a break. Then, I plan on jumping right back into fantasy with Middlegame by Seanan McGuire! This book has needed to happen since the moment it was released! So many people are raving about it and I love the Wayward Children series – I can’t wait to find out why this is so well loved!!
OTHER BOOKISH NEWS:
TOP 5 TUESDAY:
This was the first week of the “alphabet series” in July and it was just as much fun as I hoped it would be! I LOVED everyones lists! I feel like I’ve seen more of your reading tastes in this week alone than I have in months! This seemed to give people (myself included) a chance to talk about books they don’t normally get the chance to. This weeks letters were A-B-C-D-E. Check back next week for the letters F-G-H-I-J….. this is starting to sound like an episode of Sesame Street……. “I want cookie!!” ….. no? ok then….
OFF THE GRID READATHON!!!
Yes, ladies and gentleman, the summer edition of the Off The Grid Readathon begins this Friday! Starting just after midnight on Thursday night, it’s time to set aside all of your distractions (AKA your phone) and read as much as possible until midnight on Sunday. I get it – you have a life, and you’re not going to read for 72 hours straight (if you do though, you’re totally my hero!). The whole point is to practice and train yourself to read when you should be reading and don’t get distracted by anything else (aka falling down the Twitter hole!).
That was my week! Busy yet productive and a pretty good week! Just not too productive in the reading department…. I hope this coming week changes that!
Are you participating in the Off The Grid Readathon? If so, check us out at @OffTheGridReads for all the fun!
Until next time, happy reading!
