Ever since I got back from ALA I’ve been trying to organize my newly acquired books. (Yay, new books!) I’m almost done: I’ve sorted them by age range and then pub date, with the idea that I’ll read them a month or so before they’re actually published. Or at least TRY to read them.
This week I’ve been reading books from the summer pub pile– May-August, basically– and it’s been great! I DNF’d one book1 and read two others, and now all I have to do is remember to switch over to my Kindle once in a while so my eTBR doesn’t get neglected. Yay!
Right now I’m partly through chapter two of Allies & Assassins, Justin Somper’s newest book and the start of a new series. I’d previously read Vampirates2 and loved the mix of ridiculous plot (vampire pirates) and awesome characters.
Y’all know how much I love court intrigue stories, so I’m hoping A&A will be really awesome. Although I’ll probably be comparing it to The Goblin Emperor (a book chock full of court intrigue) the whole time, which is a little unfair to A&A, but DAMN I love The Goblin Emperor.
What are you reading this week?
- Nihal of the Land of the Wind; good concept, terrible writing. It’s a translated book, too, which might have something to do with it. I am TERRIBLE with translated books. They never sound right to me and I always have problems reading them. Except with comic books, for some reason. ↩
- and I have the next few books in the series on my eTBR. ↩
