Updates from the Lair is my weekly wrap-up post that includes what happened in my real life, what I’ve been reading, my posts from the week, and what I’m thinking about reading next week (and would love your advice on!).
I’m back! Did you miss me?? How did you live without book recommendations for a whole week ;-). I’ll be honest, I’m definitely still getting over jetlag combined with a red-eye where I dozed for about three hours tops. I keep thinking that I’m feeling rested finally and then going back to punch-drunk tired, ha. But, I got lots of books at ALA and painted watercolors with Tabitha and had a real vacation for once!!! Instead of doing one big post about books from ALA, I’m thinking I’ll do a lot over the coming months highlighting 4-6 books that I grabbed that look awesome along with lots of giveaways, that sound good?
I finally got Audible to work again on my phone so I’m continuing to listen to Range of Ghosts! This audiobook is so awesome all, you must listen to it!! It is a fantasy world based on the steppe peoples with awesome gods and ghosts and tiger-people thrown in :D. Also a female wizard who is awesome and I love her.
My current e-read is Knight’s Shadow. It’s not as funny as the first book, but I’m enjoying the start of it. It is reminding me strongly of Gentleman Bastards even down to the main character dying of poison at the start ;-).
I was quite surprised to receive The Glass Sentence unsolicited in the mail while I was gone along with an arc of the sequel. I requested this one back when it was originally coming out and heard nothing back, but apparently I got myself on a list, haha! I’m really enjoying the unique world so far and now just need to be not so tired so that I can actually connect with the text *falls asleep*. Seriously not the book’s fault though!
