So I have officially finished my nights and now have the rest of the read-a-thon off to read at my pleasure. A quick summary means I have completed 5 books so far this read-a-thon:
- The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks
- The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
- Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones
- Fireblood by Elly Blake
- Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes.
Last night was another really successful reading night, I completed both books I set out to read; Fireblood and Frozen Tides. I really enjoyed both of these and honestly cannot wait to continue with both of these series; Nightblood is out this year and hopefully I will be picking up Crystal Storm some time this week.
Now, I do have the rest of today to try and get some more reading done but coming from nights back to days is very tiring so how much I get done today will be questionable. However, I do have a few books that I want to try and get to.
I am currently listening to A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas, the final book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses Trilogy. I am currently a few hours in to the 27 hour audiobook and am marking off the chapters as I go. I am listening to this on double speed and am flying through this, I plan on getting to hours 8/10 by the end of today as I have a bit of travelling to do this afternoon.
As for physical reads, I would like to continue my read of Glimpses a short story collection of different new fantasy authors; although this is not a series but rather a companion to other collections of short stories. With many of the short stories being introductions to several series themselves.
I would also like to try and make progress on Academ’s Fury by Jim Butcher, I am currently a few hundred pages in and I think today/ tonight would be a good time to sit down and try and get some more read.
I know I am currently deviating from my original tbr quite drastically, this is mainly because I didn’t predict that I would get through majority of my tbr in the first 3 days and haven’t yet been able to collect majority of my physical tbr from home. I do, however, have a large number of sequels currently with me and I can keep picking from them for the moment until I can collect the ones I wanted to focus on for this week!
So, I am five books in and I am loving this read-a-thon; I am hoping to have at least caught up on a lot of series by the end of this week. I have very few plans over the next week, so hopefully I can get some series reading done.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out what I have read so far! Let me know your favourite read of the read-a-thon so far!
