Happy Friday! Today is THE Friday! The last Friday I have to work this year! After today, I’m on vacation from December 22nd through January 3rd! I return for work Friday, Jan 4th, and then get a weekend right after. So, I figured I’ll make a TBR for these two-ish weeks!
Also! Meredith @Allboutthembooksandstuff is going to come visit me! We’ve known each other for a decade – made friends online back when we were teenagers. On December 26th, I’ll meet her face to face for the first time, and she’ll stay with me for a week and a bit. How neat is that! I’M SO EXCITED AUGH.
But anyways! The books I plan to read!
The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans
I try to read a Christmas book every year, and this is the one I’ve picked up. I started it yesterday, and aside from the weird in-your-face blatant traditional gender roles, it’s not bad.
Ikigami: The Ultimate Limit volumes 4-6 by Motoro Mase
I’ve owned these forever, and while I really have enjoyed the first three volumes, I have never picked these up. Who knows why.
City of Dragons by Robin Hobb
Another one I’ve already started (though I won’t finish during break). I’m buddyreading this one with Zezee, and we’re both diggin’ it so far.
Mushishi volume 2-4 by Yuki Urushibara
All of the manga I’m going to list – including this one – are ones that I own multiple volumes of, and have only read the first or the first couple. So. Here we are.
Halo: First Strike by Eric S Nylund
I’ve been reading these Halo books because my coworker lent them to me. I honestly haven’t really ever played the Halo games, but I find myself rather enjoying these. The world building in the book is enough to make up for my lack of game knowledge. And apparently I like military scifi. Who knew? I’m about half way through this one, and want to be able to give it back to him after break is over.
Priest volumes 1-6 by Min-Woo Hyung
I read the first… two or three volumes of this a long time ago, but I think I need a reread before I can continue. And then I’ll be caught up (to what I own)!
The Monster Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson
I’LL FINISH IT ONE DAY I SWEAR. I am adoring this book, but it’s one I’m savoring, so I’m going slow. One day. :”D
And that’s it! I’m sure my brain will be like ‘also pick this up’ to random other books, so we’ll see how this goes. Happy reading! And happy vacation (to me… and you if you have it!)
