Hi! I was traveling for most of last week, so forgive me while I try to catch up. D: That’s definitely why this post is so late! I got a lot of reading done on the planes though, always my favorite part of flying >.>. I’m trying hard to make a couple of pub dates, so we’ll see how it goes ;-). I’ve also decided to try hard to get back into my “good grad student” routine. I’m going to be shifting my schedule to getting up early and working out before classes/meetings, or hopping on the treadmill at the end of the day and reading academic papers while walking (if I can’t resist sleeping in). I need to get into productive mode again ;-).
I’m currently burning through The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastards #3). It’s a long book and the pub date is this coming week, but according to my Kindle I only have about 3 hours to go, so I should be able to manage to finish this one tomorrow evening! I have to admit that I’m not enjoying it as much as the first two, partially because the romance is the main focus instead of the scheming. I really prefer scheming >.>.
Since I have to power down my Kindle during take-off and landing, I brought a physical book as backup! Yes, I’m not willing to spend even ten minutes not reading on a plane! That is valuable time ;-). Wednesdays in the Tower is the second Castle Glower book. Basically, middle-grade fantasy with a castle that changes around the rooms as it sees fit. So adorable! I loved the first book, the second book hasn’t been quite as awesome I must admit, though there is a griffon. It sounds like we might find out how the castle actually works (where do rooms go and come from??), since the characters are pondering!
I can’t decide which audiobook to start next, help? I have three to choose from (that I already bought, just have to decide the order): The Fifth Wave, Legend, and Reboot. I would very much like your opinion!
And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
