I am still working on my Fall TBR and I have two books left on my Summer TBR list! I am sort of bad at following lists. I need to be better about reserving books at the library instead of just checking to see if they’re there and deciding to read something else that I’ve been eyeing. I guess it doesn’t really matter, as long as I’m reading, right?
Recent Reads: I made myself finish reading Assassin’s Quest, the last book of the Farseer trilogy. I had been book wussing in the middle of it for months! I am so happy to have that series done, and I’m excited to read more Robin Hobb! I also read Hemlock, What Alice Forgot, Across a Star-Swept Sea, and This Song Will Save Your Life. I hope to post about most of them!
Maybe ambitious list to be read: Where the Stars Still Shine, Antigoddess, and Dangerous Girls are books from my Summer TBR list that I have checked out right now! I’m so excited to finally get to Dangerous Girls! (I actually drafted this post last night, then read all of Where the Stars Still Shine since then!) I also want to read Thornhill, the sequel to Hemlock. There’s another book I’ve been too chicken to finish that I really hope to finish! I also bought The Boyfriend App when it was on sale, so I might get to that! I might attempt some of the other books I’m missing from my summer/fall TBR, but that largely depends on the library!
Upcoming on the blog: Today is my immediate family’s Christmas get together, and I plan to do a post of bookish gifts tomorrow or Saturday. It might be late compared to other gift related posts, but oh well! I plan to do some sort of 2013 wrap up post, and post some reviews. There will also be some sort of 2014 goals post! I also intend to spend time replying to comments and visiting other blogs, because I haven’t done enough of that lately!
If you’re visiting from Asti’s blog, thank you! If you comment or follow, I will definitely visit your blog soon! And if you’re not here from Asti’s blog and don’t know about her blog, you definitely need to check it out!
Do you have any big end of the year reading plans? Are you cramming some reading in to meet your Goodreads goal? Did you get some good gifts you can’t wait to dig into? Let me know!
I’m so bummed out that I couldn’t get interested in Antigoddess. I was SOOO looking forward to it, but it just didn’t engage me the way Anna Dressed in Blood did. 😦
I’ve seen a lot of mixed reactions to it which has kind of made me worried, but I’m hoping I can get through it, even if I don’t love it as much as Anna!
LOVE Robin Hobb – you need to read the rest of her books too. They all take place in the same world that The Farseer Trilogy takes place in.
I definitely plan on reading the rest! I am most excited about the Tawny Man/Fool books but I’m excited about Liveship Traders, too! It’s nice to see other Hobb lovers!
I like your pretty blog, I’ll be back more often =)
Do you want to follow each other on GFC and maybe social media?
Let me know so I can follow you back.
I will check out your blog! I don’t have GFC, but I follow on Bloglovin. Thanks for visiting!
I keep hearing such great things about This Song Will Save Your Life, it’s at the top of my winter TBR list and I plan to tackle it next week! Even though I’ve exceeded my reading goal, I’m still trying to cram as much as I can! I am enjoying some fun holiday reads and I’m excited for all the books I’m collecting for the new year! 🙂
I liked it! I didn’t LOVE it as much as a lot of people did, but I enjoyed it and the ending made it better for me. I hope you love it! I’m trying to cram a lot of reading in, too! I’m really excited about books for next year! I love how that works, it’s just another day but it’s like ALL THE BOOKS and a new period of time to try to fit them in!
I also bought The Boyfriend App on B&N (Nook) because it was on sale hehe. I’ve been meaning to read that, and I still can’t, because my freaking Nook decided to freeze! All of the buttons won’t work and B&N still hasn’t responded to my e-mail. Even though I reached my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books this year, I’m still planning on reading a book a day until school resumes (I don’t know when and I DON’T want to know when I get back to school xD). Hope you have a fantastic New Year’s!!!
I bought mine on my iPhone, because I have a lot of gift card money on my apple account! Bummer about your Nook!! I dropped my Nook the same week I bought a Nexus, then recently broke my Nexus somehow, so I’m borrowing my mom’s Nook because she doesn’t use it anymore. I hate when things break and people aren’t helpful! I hope you can get it fixed soon! I hope you can enjoy a lot of books on your break! I hope you have a wonderful New Year too!
aww sorry about your Nook and Nexus D: you should contact the company to help you fix it. I contacted B&N and man, they have really bad customer service. I explained that my Neek froze and none of the buttons worked except for the on/off button, and they told me that unfortunately, I have to get an out of warrant replacement. And guess what? My dad (who knows nothing about Nooks) fixed my Nook by just rebooting the battery -______-. At least it’s working now though! But the tech support of B&N is really bad. Grrrr.
