Happy Tuesday! Today’s topic is one I weirdly had a hard time with, and I wasn’t expecting that.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl!
I tried to pick from a variety of genres, but honestly it’s still mostly fantasy. Honestly any of these I’d recommend, except Bloodwitch, but only because it’s book three. If you wanna read that one, pick up book 1, Truthwitch.
- Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente – Fantasy
- Easy by Tammara Webber – Romance
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik – Fantasy
- Hyperion by Dan Simmons – Science fiction
- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke – Fantasy
- Rook by Sharon Cameron – Fantasy
- Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard – Fantasy
- Trigun by Yasuhiro Nightow – Science fiction
- Inuyusha by Rumiko Takahashi – Fantasy
- Saiyuki by Kazuya Minekura – Fantasy
And that’s it! I didn’t talk about them individually, because the theme is a bit weird to do that. Usually I’d go into how they fit the topic and why I picked them but in this case it’s kinda self-explanatory. So pbtbt.
Happy March! This is what I’m currently reading!
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green – This is my work book – the one I keep in my work bag and read on my lunch breaks. So far, it’s pretty interesting. I don’t think I’m 100% hooked yet, but that could easily still happen. This got a lot of hype last year or so and while I was interested I wanted to let the focus die down a bit so I wouldn’t be disappointed. I’m glad I did, as I said, I’m not 100% hooked yet and if I would have started reading it at the epitome of its online hype I probably would have been disappointed. But for now I’m just waiting and hoping I’ll get into the story. Which like I said, could still totally happen.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – This is my current audio book! So far it’s pretty good and I like the characters. The narrator is doing a decent job at distinguishing their voices so it’s pretty easy to follow, which I appreciate. This book will count for Fantasy Bingo if I can get it done this month. I’m already super aware I won’t be completely filling out the card this year, but I’m hoping I can at least get a bingo or two. Maybe next year will be better!
Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes – I actually just started this book this morning! I read the first chapter, decided ‘yes I’m reading this now’ and then put it down to write this. After, I’ll be picking this book right back up. I honestly don’t know too much about this aside from what the first chapter has told me: That it follows Sal the Cacophony as she tells her tale to her jailers before she’s executed. I tend to like this kind of storytelling in general, so I’m hoping I also like the main character too!
The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince by Robin Hobb – Technically I haven’t started this book yet, but it’s a buddy read I’ll be reading this week with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks! It’ll likely be started today as well, if not tomorrow. This is a novella set in Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings universe and man I am so ready. I miss this world so much, and I hope I don’t get all emotional (but let’s be honest, Hobb’s gonna make me).
And that’s it! There are also a few manga I plan on picking up soon but I figure those read so fast, they’re not worth mentioning now and will just be mentioned in my wrap up instead.
