Hi! I’m currently in NYC so this is being pre-written! I’m gonna list the books I took with me… aaaaaas they’ll be the ones I’m reading when this post goes up. Yes? Yes.
During the first week of August while I’m away on my trip, I’ll be attempting to complete my Transfiguration NEWT, for which I need an Outstanding. So in order I’m (this week) reading:
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare – This fulfills the A level of ‘read a book with lgbt rep’. I read the first one of these ages ago and was luke warm to it. I own the whole series though so I want to give it another chance or two before deciding whether or not they’re actually for me.
Delicious in Dungeon vol 3 by Ryoko Kui – This fulfills my E level, ‘Read a sequel’. The first two volumes of this series I rather enjoyed, so I’m hoping I’ll like this one too.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Mass – This chunker will fulfill my O level, ‘Read a book over 500 pages’, which by the way, is a rather evil prompt for a readathon. I’m hoping to buzz through this though like I tend to do with Mass books.
These are all the books I’m ‘currently’ reading, though there are others I’m in the middle of that I’m setting aside during my Newts:
The Blood Mirror by Brent Weeks – I was hoping to have this done by now but it hasn’t happened. As we speak, I’m about 320 pages into it. Gotta finish it in September!
Windwitch by Susan Dennard – As much as I don’t want to set this aside, I might have to. I need to read an audiobook for one of my Newts but it has to be one I haven’t started yet. I’m tempted to finish this one and read the sequel as the prompt though. We’ll see.
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren – Weird title aside, this is a weirdly wholesome romance. I mean, totally full of sex scenes, don’t get me wrong. But also wholesome. I rather like it so far.
And that’s it it! If I somehow manage to finish the main three books while on the trip (highly doubtful) and don’t have anything else to read, I’ll make a point to finish Windwitch so I can pick up the next book for my Newts. Happy reading!
