Happy December! Today is my Friday, as I took tomorrow off work, so I’m hoping I get a good chunk farther into everything I mention today this weekend. And then next week, I have a full five day work week, and then a normal weekend, and then another work week, and then I’m on vacation until January 4th. I’m so excited.
This is what I’m currently reading!
Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw – This is my current audio book! Last month, I made a pile of books where I wasn’t sure if I wanted them anymore. So basically what I’m doing is I start one, read a chapter or two, and make a decision to either keep reading or just get rid of it it if doesn’t immediately catch my interest. This one was in that pile and passed with flying colors. I’m so, so, so entertained by this. It follows a magic student who dies immediately, and then get revived by a necromancer and then is really grumpy about it. It’s absolutely hilarious, and it’s probably gonna be five stars unless it randomly takes a nose dive.
The Moth Diaries by Rachel Klein – This is another one of those books on that pile, and this one aaaalso passed. I’m not 100% invested yet but I’m definitely fascinated and want to keep reading. It follows a girl at a boarding school who is convinced her classmate is a vampire… but she’s telling the story through journal entries that her therapist recommended she share, because she was diagnosed with some sort of delusionary disorder. So it’s fascinating. Is the classmate a vampire, or is her mind playing tricks on her? It reads almost like a gothic horror, it’s neat!
Renegade’s Magic by Robin Hobb – This is a buddy read I’m doing with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks! So far, I’m rather enjoying it. I’m not as emotionally invested as I usually am with a Hobb book, but it’s still pretty good. I’m waiting for this explosive emotional ending that I know is coming. She never ends books without making me go ‘;~; buh’. This is the third book in the Soldier Son trilogy and the last Hobb novel I have yet to finish. So after this, I think we’re gonna pick up Margaret Weis’s books. I just need something long and invest-y, man. I need it.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin – This is another buddy read! This one I’m doing with an irl friend. It’s something we decided to start on December 1st (though technically I haven’t picked it up yet, bad Emily bad) as a way to celebrate both of us winning Nanowrimo (which we both did, yay!) I’m hoping I like this. I’ve heard good things.
And that’s it for books. I did decided to do an instagram challenge for December, so those pictures might pop up in future posts – we’ll see. Though if you do wanna be buddies on ig, add me! (Shameless plug, shh)
