What I Read

26715438 26839234-3 22884184-2

This month I read 3 books (1 novel, 1 graphic novel, 1 comic)

*** I have now read 4 of my 20 book goal for the year. 1 book ahead of schedule!


Next Escapes?

I have an eARC for Snakewood by Adrain Shelly, which I received on Net Galley. I also have a little less than a hundred pages left in Read Seas Under Reas Skies, but since Kaja and myself are postponing out review date for that, I decided to put that book on hiatus until we decide a date, and read and review some new releases until then.

I am planning on going to an author event in March for the release of Brian Staveley’s (Max Gladstone will be there too) new book, The Last Mortal Bond!!!!!! So that means, I will be reading, finally, The Providence of Fire. Before that one though, I will be reading Arena by Holly Jennins, another title from Net Galley. Then, later this month, I should be receiving a review copy of Dragon Hunters  by Marc Tuners, in the mail.

Also, I have two more graphic novels from 01 Publishing to check out: Crazy Mary and Utopiates

What do you plan on reading?

  1. Excellent month! And have fun at the author event! No one ever comes to my part of the country 🙂

  2. Looking forward to hearing what you think of Snakewood! I just finished it yesterday. Even though the first 100 pages were rough going, I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

    • I REALLY hope that is the case for me too. Rough is almost an understand. I am that close to DNFing at 21% – which I guess is just under 100 pages?

      Story and plot are good, but the prose and style are just a nightmare to read at times.

  3. Wow, you really packed a lot of reading into a short month!

    I’m definitely going to join in on your GB read-along with Kaja – she’s actually the one who convinced me to read The Lies of Locke Lamora in the first place! I’ve not read any of the other books in the series, so this is a good chance for me to carry on with it and chat about what those guys get up to. I’m sure their adventures in the second book will be just as jaw-dropping! 😀

    • That is awesome to hear!!! Make sure you tweet us your review when you post it! Actually, when Kaja and I figure out when we will posting our Red Seas reviews, I’ll make sure one of us lets you know, so maybe you can post it on the same day as us 🙂
