My reading has really been slow these last few months, what with publishing my own book and all that goes with it. I’m hoping to step up the reading through the rest of the summer and what better way to achieve this than to tell the world my plan!
I’m using the format of WWW Wednesday, as I didn’t get this post finished in time to share it yesterday.
What I’m currently reading.
Jo Thomas The Olive Branch.
I only picked this book up quickly last night to get a taste of the story. 50 pages later, I know I’m going to enjoy it. I’ve read one of Jo Thomas’s books before and loved it. Here’s the review of Late Summer in the Vineyard.
What I’m currently listening to
My Husband’s Wife
It’s ok. Seems a bit slow, but there are intriguing titbits to keep me interested so far.
What I recently finished reading
Senlin Ascends Josiah Bancroft
I’m not sure what to say about this book. I didn’t love it and felt it was slow in places. I found the tower concept very hard to picture and it was hard to really connect with Senlin. However, towards the end I did find myself not wanting to stop reading, so I’ll be interested to see what happens in book 2. I’ve heard the pace picks up, fingers crossed.
What I plan to read next
Anthony Ryan’s Collected Non-fiction
I think this is a newsletter subscriber offer and I can’t wait to read his non-fiction articles.
David Gemmell – Rhyming Rings
I have been saving this book since my birthday last year as it’s one of the only books I haven’t read by my all time favourite author.
This is my book group choice for August and a book I have been interested in reading for a while.
Knowing from experience how hard it is to get reviews, I want to read a couple of Indie books and support my fellow authors. So I intend to read;
The Exercise of Vital Powers – Ian Gregoire
Not Like Anyone Else – Jennifer Leigh
I still have a couple of trilogies I want to finish by the end of this year
Queen of Fire – Anthony Ryan
Magic Borne – Crown of Stones – C. L Schneider
There are 350+ on my goodreads TBR shelf so I have plenty of other great books to choose from. Plus my kids are always recommending books and I know I should get stuck into Robin Hobb’s latest trilogy. If I do, I won’t be doing anything else for a while!
I hope to do another post in Autumn, I wonder how many books I’ll have read by then and how many of the above will be finished!
Do you have any reading plans for the summer?
