So it is currently day 3 of the read-a-thon and I just wanted to give you another quick update.
So, I have finished a total of three books; two since the last update. I started the week with The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks, which was fantastic and it set up the week really well. However, I found myself disappointed with my next two reads.
I finished Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones, which is the sequel to Wintersong. I loved the first book in this series but the second book in this series is a bit of a disappointment; I found myself wanting any form of plot and found some of the characters completely different from the first book.
I then picked up The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye, however, I did find myself a bit disappointed. This is the sequel to The Crown’s Game which I absolutely loved. However, I found myself feeling like there was nothing really added to this book and it felt like it was there simply to make it a series rather than a standalone. With the very little that actually happens in The Crown’s Fate, both books could have been combined and it would have worked really well.
Okay, so far 1 good book, 2 disappointments.
Now, what do I plan on reading tonight, for my last night shift?
I have another two books that I am taking with me, hopefully I will be able to finish both of these tonight.
Firstly, Fireblood by Elly Blake, the sequel to Frostblood. I loved Frostblood, I found it to be a very typical YA fantasy but I still need to know what happens next. This is currently the only book published in this series that I haven’t read and with the sequel set to be published this year, I really would like to be caught up. It have just over 400 pages so I should be able to get this done tonight!
The other book I intend on getting to tonight is Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes, the forth book in the Falling Kingdoms Series. I really need to get this series caught up, mainly because I have the companion series and have the final book in the series on pre-order. I have loved each of the books in this series, but they have taken me a little bit to get in to. It has been a while since I read book 3, so hopefully I haven’t forgotten too much stuff. Again, this is just over 400 pages; so hopefully I should be able to get this done tonight too!
How has your read-a-thon been so far? I am really happy with my amount of reading, if not the quality of some of the books! Let me know how you are doing in the comments below!
