My classes are getting on alright and I don’t think I’m behind! I just have to keep this up!!

Yesterday

Queens of GeekRabbit Trick (Mindspace Investigations, #0.5)

Queens of Geek is a book I’ve been meaning to read for awhile, so when a buddy read opportunity came up in the GR group: For Love of a Book, I decided to jump on it. The buddy read started on Friday, so I was only a few days late 🙂 I loved it!

Rabbit Trick is a novella in the Mindspace Investigations series. It was way short, but I do really like this world now. 

This Week

My fellow bookworms, these are the books I want to get read this week! There might be fun ones on the side, or less serious ones for when I’m tired, but these 8 are ones I’m dedicated to finishing this week.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.The Burning Bridge (Ranger's Apprentice, #2)We Were Liars

  • I’m over halfway done with Daughter of Smoke and Bone and as my audiobook for this month, I want to make sure I finish it. I did have to renew it already :/
  • One of my GR groups does a TBR lottery twice a month –# gets called and we pick a book on out TBRs with that # in it (43, 143, 243, etc) and for the first one, The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O is my book pick. I am trying to pick standalones really… anyhow, it is a LONG book and I want to finish it before the 16th, when the next book lottery # will be called.
  • I’m doing a year long series read of Ranger’s Apprentice, so we are reading The Burning Bridge this month! I enjoyed the last book 🙂
  • We Were Liars is another Buddy Read I signed up for and one I’ve been meaning to read for months. The buddy read happens next week, but I’ve got to return it before then. 

Flight SeasonSovereign (Nemesis, #2)Curse of the Bane (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #2)The Man I Want to Be

  • Flight Season is a Netgalley approval which will be published next week! I’m trying to stay on top of my approvals!
  • Sovereign is the second/final book in the Nemesis duology and I picked up the physical copy from the library a whiiiiiile ago. Once I finish this one, I’ll have no more physical library books to read!
  • I’m doing a year long series read of The Last Apprentice, so we are reading Curse of the Bane this month.
  • Look, I’m having a several year long engagement, so I’m kind of a sucker for anything that mentions weddings. I had a weak moment and picked The Man I Want to be up from Netgalley and with the publication date coming up soon, I should really read it.

 

Series TBR Takedown Update

After about a week long deliberation, I’ve decided to give up on TMI… I read the first three books last year, I read TDI, and last week I read City of Fallen Angels. While the first three books and even TDI had a good amount of humor I appreciated, City of Fallen Angels really rubbed me the wrong way. People are acting different, I rolled my eyes more than laughed (I didn’t laugh at all so…), and the Clary & Jace thing just makes me frustrated. I almost put City of Lost Souls up on my TBR this week –I do have the book from the library, but I practically groaned when thinking about it.
I know I’m so close to finishing — just 4 books left: City of Lost Souls, City of Heavenly Fire, The Bane Chronicles, and Tales from the Shadowhunter’s Academy
But… if I force myself to keep reading I might like the series even less and giving myself the option to stop reading the series felt like a huge load was taken off my shoulders.

So, this is a huge bummer, and I feel horrible knowing I won’t be able to finish this challenge, but hopefully I will be able to read everything else on my list.

    1. That is exactly why I made it a personal challenge of mine to read the completed series still on my TBR list. I keep thinking “I really want to read that… eventually” but instead pick up a different book to read.
      It has been helpful so far 🙂
