So I read a bit yesterday – I didn’t finish the book as I had hoped. This morning was commencement so I read for about 40 minutes over coffee before the chaos began… so this update will include this morning, too.

I’m really hopin’ to finish this book tomorrow, and then get through those manga and graphic novels I’ve listed in the readathon TBR too. Wish me luck!

Bout of Books 19 | Day 3 Update

Bout of Books

Happy day 4! Today is another work day for me, so we’ll see how much I get done, hawhaw.

For yesterday, I read the following:

A Court of Wings and Ruin: 66 pages.

…which is kinda awful for being at home schmoozing all day. đŸ˜› But hey, it’s still reading, I suppose.

Woot? :”D

Bout of Book 19 | Day 2 Update

Bout of Books

Welcome to day 3! I got a bit more done in day 2 than day 1 but still not as much as I’d like. But hey, I’m still on track for my ‘read every day’ goal, so I’m okay with it, yo.

Reading completed:

A Court of Wings and Ruin: 81 pages

The Gene: An Intimate History: 25 minutes

I realized yesterday morning that I didn’t include the above audiobook in my TBR… whoops. I’m already about 40% through it, so it’s totally on my TBR. IT COUNTS!! D:


And that’s it! I’m going to half price books today so …. a haul is in my future, hawhaw. Hopefully I’ll get a few graphic novels I can buzz through for this readathon. :”D

Happy reading!

#TBRTakeDown progress update

Hello! Today is February 9th, the half way point in the tbrtakedown readathon. If you saw my previous post, I made a TBR that listed five books fulfilling five challenges. Here is my progress on them as of this morning:

Attack on Titan, Volume 11Attack on Titan vol 11 by Hajime Isayama – Complete!

Mushishi, Vol. 1Mushishi vol 1 by Yuki Urushibara – Complete!

The Traitor Baru CormorantThe Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson – In progress

Y: The Last Man, Vol. 7: Paper Dolls (Y: The Last Man, #7)Y: The Last Man vol 7 by Brian K Vaughan – Not yet started

JoylandJoyland by Stephen King – Not yet started

 

 

 

 

.

Honestly at this point, I’ll be happy if I finish one of the two novels I have listed. I plan on definitely getting through Y: The Last Man so all the graphic novels and manga will be done, but I’m not sure I can swing both those novels. I started The Traitor Baru Cormorant the other day and so far am very much enjoying it. It’s one of those novels though where you feel like you read 200 pages of information and it turns out you’ve only read 50. This book is dense, man. I love it, but it’s soooo dense to me. My goal is to finish it by Sunday night when the readathon ends. Wish me luck!
