Hello! Happy November.
I’m slowly getting back on track with my regular posting schedule (Sun-Wed-Sat). I say ‘slowly’ because hey, this post is a day late.
If you haven’t read any posts in a while, I moved recently. I’m still unpacking, still running into things that I realize I don’t have until I need them direly (like a tube to drain the washing machine. Why that never occurred to me I don’t know).
So recently I haven’t been reading much. Today was the first day I picked up a physical book in about two or three weeks.
So I’m ‘reading’ a couple things actively:
Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb
This is my main focus at the moment. It’s a buddy reading I’m doing with Zezee and my goal is to get through chapter 14 tonight. I’m in the middle of 13 at the time of writing this. (So more realistically, I’ll hit my goal tomorrow. Sorry Zezee friend for slowing us down!)
So far I’m really liking it. 😀
Ready, Set, Novel!: A Workbook by Lindsey Grant
I’m participating in Nanowrimo! At the moment, I’m exactly one day’s worth of words behind (I ended up not writing today. I was on track and planned on taking today to write and read my Hobb book but then I realized all my cat’s vet stuff was never transferred from the move and then one of my book cases broke so I had to buy a new one, and… today was a long day, and I didn’t get to read much nor did I write at all. 0 words for today, woo)
But anyways, this book is… okay, I guess. I feel like it would be a lot more helpful if I was writing a different kind of novel, I guess. A lot of the prompts are very geared towards a certain kind of book and it’s not the kind that I’m writing. Sooo unfortunately a lot of the prompts in here are irrelevant to what I’m making. I’m doing everything that would help me though, and those are pretty neat.
Embassytown by China Mieville
This one I started on audio, switched to physical and now I’m back on audio. I found that when switching to physical, that the audio copy I was listening to was missing the prologue. Since I’ve read that, I’m now back on audio – it allows me to read while during my (shorter now since moving!) commute to work. I’m liking it a lot more now that I have that context the prologue provided.
And that’s it! If you’d look at my goodreads ‘currently reading’ list, you’d also see The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks on there. I didn’t include it here because it’s currently still packed in a box. I haven’t touched the thing in months. I was enjoying it when I was reading it though. I’ll pick it back up again once things settle down I think. Maybe after the buddy read is over.
