Hello! Happy October! Yada yada best time of the year yada yada. This is what I’m currently reading!
Twelve Kings in Sharakhai by Bradley P Beaulieu
This is a buddy read I’m currently buzzing through with Amanda. We both kinda put it down for a while but have picked it back up recently. So far I’m a bit indifferent to it. Something about it isn’t gripping me. It’s not bad, but… just, isn’t doing anything I guess.
We’re nearing the end of it, maybe a bit over 100 pages left, so I’m hoping the ending blows me away.
The Gray House by Mariam Petrosyan
This book I am reading as part of the r/Fantasy book of the month read-along. I’ve never participated in one before, so I’m rather pumped. It’ll count towards the hard mode of the bingo square as well! I’m not too far into it so far, but my opinion of it is good. It seems interesting. Listening to it on audio, so I didn’t realize how big it was when I started it – over 700 pages! I hope it stays good!
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
I’m reading this book as a buddy read with Katy! So far it’s REALLY UNNERVING OH MY GOSH but I’m rather enjoying it. It’s really well written and very atmospheric. Perfect for Halloween!
Sooo sometimes I pick up so many books that some of them kinda… fade into the background while I’m distracted by the most recent ones. This month, there are three. I’m ‘currently reading’ them but I likely won’t look at them again until the top three books are done.
- The Blood Mirror by Brent Weeks – I’ve been reading this one for ages because it’s huge. I’m loving it but it’s more of a ‘pick up in between books’ book
- The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu – I started this on audio and wasn’t digging the narration. I switched to physical but like the one above, tend to just pick it up when I have some time
- First Strike by Eric Nylund – I borrowed this book from a friend, who didn’t realize it takes me forever to read books that I’ve borrowed. When I get to these three books again, this one will get priority.
If I get time, I also plan on participating in the Spookathon, which starts on October 15th. It’ll get a separate TBR. I also want to pick up The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson to reread it before its sequel comes out on October 30th. Wish me luck!
What are you reading? Have you read any of the above?
