Updates from the Lair 11/15/15

Updates from the Lair

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!). 

Loves! Sorry I’m late posting this, I was too tired when I got home from friends’ last night (and kicked butt at Monopoly!) and I knew you all would forgive me :). It’s been a normal week, though we did lose power for a few hours on Friday from crazy storms and I got my car’s bumper fixed finally, so it’s all better. The husband is learning physics, so I’ve started dreaming about solving physics problems… yey.

My Week

The Long Way to a Small, Angry PlanetYou probably all noticed my read along for The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet! I’m really loving this book so far and am really happy we’re doing this read along since I probably wouldn’t have found it otherwise. It’s a great sci-fi for those who liked Firefly for the characters and light-hearted fun ;-).

Tower of ThornsI’m listened to Tower of Thorns on audiobook currently and loving it! I resisted reading an ARC since I knew how great the audio for Dreamer’s Pool was and I’m glad I waited. Blackthorn and Grim are my favorites.

PlanetfallI read Planetfall pretty much in a day yesterday (hence why I didn’t have time to prep this post….) and wow what a great sci-fi! It’s addictive and blends a lot of really compelling plot lines. I need to figure out how to review it now, but seriously, go grab a copy.

Sorcerer to the CrownI’m buddy reading Sorcerer to the Crown with CJ of Sarcasm Lemons and really enjoying it. It helps that she is sending me emails with hot men in them to imagine as the main character ;-). The language is a bit dense, and there is some pretty heavy racism that the MC has to deal with, but the magic is awesome and there is a lot of great humor, so I’m thinking I’m going to love it!

Bands of MourningFinally, I’ve started Bands of Mourning :D. It was one of those situations where a bunch of books I tried just weren’t cutting it and I realized that I was comparing them all to Sanderson, so I might as well just read Bands of Mourning instead of disliking all other books for not being this one, ha. It’s awesome so far, obviously!

And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:

Next Week’s Reading

(books up next on the reading list, thoughts?)

Wake of Vultures Red

I’m in the middle of a number of books right now, but if I finish my audio this week, I’ll be listening to Wake of Vultures next I think. I also already read the first couple of chapters of Red and am loving it, so I will be diving into that this week. It doesn’t come out for a while, but I’m reviewing it for a blog tour, so I like to get those deadlines taken care of quickly so I don’t forget ;-).

Happy Reading!

  2. Kicking ass at Monopoly absolves you from all crimes. ;)

    Oh Firefly, I keep meaning to watch it but….

    Ah, Mead’s Soundless is not doing terribly well, is it? Such a pity too, I was super excited for it but I don’t think I could get past the whole cultural misrepresentation.

  3. I can’t wait for you to finish Tower of Thorns so we can discuss it!
    I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Planetfall. I just heard about it from another friend who’s currently reading it, and it sounds really good! I’m crossing my fingers for your giveaway, since ILL will be down for a month. (Did you see that? I’m trying not to cry, haha.)
