Books for the plane!

Hello! At this time this is posted, it’s August 5th! But now as I’m currently writing, it’s July 27th!

I’m pre-writing a bunch of posts because (as I’ve likely mentioned a couple times now) on August 1st, I’m getting married! And then August 2nd, I’m hopping on a plane to go to Hawaii for my honeymoon! And me being me, I’m gonna read on the plane ride there and back (and maybe during downtime, too, but we’ll see).

So I’ve decided to write a post about the books I plan on bringing with me (assuming any that I’m currently reading don’t get finished before my flight).


All three are books on my 17 in 2017 list, so if I’m able to finish them all, that would be swell. :”D

Dragon Wing by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman – I found this one randomly in my old college’s ‘two for a dollar’ sale shelf. I acutlaly found all the books in the series except the second one (which I’ve since acquired…). I’ve heard this series is super good, so I’m hoping I’ll love it.

14 by Peter Clines – I read The Fold by Clines a year or two ago and it has become one of my favorite books. Apparently this book is a companion novel-prequel kind of thing. Like, I was supposed to read this one first. Whoops. Well, I’m gonna read it now instead. 😛

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness – I bought this book as soon as it came out but never actually picked it up (whoops). Considering I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Ness so far, I’m hoping this one follows the pattern. :”DThe Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1)

(Not pictured) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – Not pictured because it’s an audiobook and I used my phone to take the above photo… can’t really use phone to take picture of cover in phone. 😛 So not pictured. Currently, I’m about 1/3 through this, so I’m not sure how far I’ll be into it by the 2nd of August. I’m hoping to finish this super soon – I’m loving it so far, it’s just so great! 😀

And that’s it! Ideally, I’ll finish all of these. Whatever I don’t get to will become an informal TBR or sorts. Wish me luck and see you all on August 16th when I get back. :”D

Books I Took to Malaysia – Blogmas 12/19

Hello! Currently in Malaysia so this is pre-written. Today I’m going to go through the books I’m taking (or ‘took’ depending on whether it’s me or you reading this) to Malaysia with me. I have a lot of travel time and a lot of down time to fill up with stuff and I’m not taking my laptop. So that means most of it will hopefully be full of book stuff.

Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb – physical book

Ship of Magic (Liveship Traders, #1)This is the book I’m currently reading with Zezee and hopefully by the time I get home, I’ll have it finished. I’m almost sure I will – I just wish my copy wasn’t so big and took up so much space. D”:





A Dance With Dragons by George R R Martin – physical book

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)This was one of the books on my ‘want to read in 2017’ T5W post, so I figured why not get a head start? It should last me a good while.






The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – ebook

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1)Apparently I’m feeling a lot of fantasy for this trip. This book is a chunker and I’m taking it as an ebook on my tablet. Hopefully it’ll be good! :”D






The Black Prism by Brent Weeks – audiobook

The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)Yet another fantasy, but this completes the ‘types of book formats’ list I suppose. Currently in the middle of this one. It hasn’t wowwed me yet but it’s kept my interest.







And that’s it! Ideally I’ll finish all of these, but if I finish Ship of Magic, I’ll be happy.

Happy reading!
