Hello ladies, gents, and non-gendered folk. How is everyone in all of your respective books worlds?
My book world has been rather busy as of late. Here’s the proof.
– Books, fuckstockings, and more books! –
It’s also been a busy few weeks for me author-wise. I don’t ordinarily post photos of myself, but here are a few.
– Author co-ordinator extraordinaire Ms. Whitney (who keeps getting our store these fabulous folk), internationally bestselling author Andrea Cremer, and myself, again… in the black –
– On the fly photo of Mr. Christopher Moore from a signing hosted at my work –
So, as you can see, I have been one busy bookgeek. There are many more signings looming, but there was the last two weeks. So, that’s enough for now.
I’m awash with books, but I decided to reread Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I have, like, ten pages left and then I am starting book two, Siege and Storm. I am just as excited as everyone else for Ruin and Rising, and I couldn’t resist rereading them close(ish) to the release date. I couldn’t wait any longer.
I finally finished Nos4a2. And I feel a huge clap of relief. That fucking book…
(For the record, I began referring to the book as “that fucking book” about two hundred pages in, so three weeks ago? I try to keep my f-bombs to a minimum per post but the bar has already been set low thanks to the Christopher Moore recurring fuckstockings joke, so there’s my excuse.)
But I managed to finished the fucking book and I am glad for it. My next book group choice is Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy. And yes, it is the one that Netflix filmed a series after. And no, it’s not my choice but I’m not mad at it. I managed to find this awesome horizontal copy some time ago, so there’s that.
Beyond that I have been (ever so) slowly reading The Princess Bride aloud with my husband. It seems that this has been ramped up the further he gets into (the scary part of) grad school. He’s thesis writing now and finds me reading aloud comforting (I think). So, we have been exploring that together. I have so many books to choose from for my next book and I have no idea what. Maybe it’s time for me to revive the voting a book for me to read next.
Alright then. I’m feeling interactive today. Here are your choices:
Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
Dark Metropolis by Jacklyn Dolamore
The Strange Maid by Tessa Gratton
City of Savages by Lee Kelly
(Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
If you would like to vote leave your suggestion in the comments.
I have tailored the choices for you a little. I won’t do this all the time. These are just the priority list that I have to get to faster than others. So, there’s that.
I have a ton of high fantasy myself, so I’m going to have to work that around everything else (including Heir of Fire). I don’t want to tire myself out on it after all. So many books!
I think that’s about it today folks. What are you reading and most looking forward to read?
