3 of 7 Reading Challenge: How Many Books Did I Read Yesterday?

Hello Everyone,

Wow yesterday’s reading sucked royally. I read only one book. A 400 page book that was a historical romance and I gave it five stars. And that’s it. I just had zero interest in anything else. I lingered in that book and I’m still thinking about it. A review will be up after my challenge is done.

Today it’s already noon. I’m grabbing lunch then I’m going to try to pick up my reading pace. I’m torn on what to choose. I think I’ll try to work on my nightstand selections.

I’m probably not going to read all of these lol. But maybe four of them? 🤔 I’m hoping to get to it starting at 1pm after I have some lunch. Then into the reading challenge I go. Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments what I should add.

Until next time,

Currently Reading Updates: Been a Bit Since I Posted!

Hello Everyone,

I know, I know. I dropped off the face of the earth, but I’m currently on my way to NYC!!! 🥰 An early birthday present to me! But as I’m traveling I’m also reading. Here’s what I’ve read recently and what I’m currently reading:

What I’ve Read:

I’ve been reading a lot of smut and romance because it’s easy and quick. However I also finally read a Kate Quinn piece and gave it 5 ⭐. It was so good!!! I read Goliath by Tochi Onyebuchi and gave it 5 ⭐ too. There’s a few that I haven’t shared. It’s just a lot of things to add.

Currently Reading:

First let’s get the romances out of the way…

Rescuing Rayne by Susan Stoker

Three Weeks to Wed by Ella Quinn

Tempt Me With Diamonds by Jane Feather

Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas

Now for the fantasy books:

I’m rereading Way of Kings to prep for book two. I’m enjoying it again and I am only 200 pages in.

Other books I’m reading:

And I hope to finish these by the end of the trip. I doubt that I’m going to finish Way of Kings, but the others are mostly romances so I should fly right through them. After these are done, I’m going to start earnestly making a dent in my tbr of books that I’ve put off reading. But until then…

Until next time,

Updates On Reading: Well My Reading Challenge Went Terribly

Hello Everyone,

Wow my blogging and reading took a nosedive. After my last post I fell ill and was coughing, wheezing and had a low grade temp. I am still Covid free, thankfully, but I am also still coughing like no tomorrow. I’m attempting to read as I’m I’ll but it’s hard to focus when you’re coughing that hard! Let’s see. I think that I read a whopping 4 books. Yeesh. No, wait, 5 books. Kaikeyi was a reread. Here’s what I’ve read:

What I’ve Read:

My two favorite books were easily Kaikeyi and Alone Out Here which for those that don’t know is pitched as a Lord of the Flies but in space YA book. While the ending was a bit a cop out, I otherwise gave the book 5 stars as I did for Kaikeyi. Rise of the Mages was a dnf as I did NOT like the main guy character at all. He was in his twenties yet was constantly acting like a whiny bratty eight year old. Plus, the plot and world building didn’t seem new to me. Rafe was fine for writing and the characters were okay but I felt bored by most the book. Bright Ruined Things was also a dnf and just not for me at all.

Currently Reading:

I’m eager for these and I have here my stats:

Wake the Bones: 25%

Maker of Swans: 10%

What Souls Are Made Of: 30%

A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting: 10%

The Darkening: 10%.

Next Reads:

Next up are a few ebooks. I might have a few physical books too, but I’m not sure what I’ll pick next. I’m just hoping to cram as much reading in as possible. Now that I’m mostly better from that bought of crap that came out of nowhere I’m trying to catch up. I’m in the middle of several books at once and I hope to get back to frequent updates. Feel free to suggest some books in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts on which books should be high on my priorities!

Until next time,

Updates On Reading: A Few Things Here and There

Hello Everyone,

I haven’t done one of these in a while, so thought I’d share with how my “reading fifty in a month” is going. So far, pretty good!

Such a beautiful cover! 🔥

I’m in the middle of Kaikeyi and this is just beautiful. As it’s over 500+ pages it is taking me a while to finish and I’m rereading it immediately so that I can give a good detailed review. I should be finished by the end of the week. And it’s fitting that RF Kuang, one of my most favorite authors, blurbs it on the front!

Currently Reading:

Two are paperbacks and the other three are kindle books. I have started Bright Ruined Things which is a Kindle book and Bone Shard which is a physical library book.

Up next:

I’m trying to knock out as many as I can before I lose steam. I’m hoping to finish Priory first as I’ve had it on my tbr for ages. And I *think* it’s the biggest in that batch. Should be good enough to knock all these out within a few days!

How’s your reading going? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Current Reads: A Bit of Everything

Hello Everyone,

Tis I, the infrequent blogger returned once again! I feel like I haven’t posted a bit of what I’ve been reading so here. Lemme fix that! As there’s a historical readathon going on and Realmathon (which I’ve been sadly failing at) I hope to get more reading done soon! Here’s what I have open at the moment!

Look at me trying to make my own stickers!

Historical Fiction I’m reading:

These are just some of my hopefuls but I don’t know that I’ll get to all of them. And now onto my fantasy shelf!

Fantasy Novels I’m Reading:

All of these are huge, well over 300 pages but I hope to get through a few of them at least. I’ve been on a historical romance kick here lately and I’m flying through those for the historical romance readathon as that’s only a week long while Realmathon happens all month long. I’m barely into 50 pages for Grace of Kings, and I’m just starting the Hacienda. Both look to be good reads.

I’d love to know what you all are reading. Are you participating in any events? Readathons? Do let me know in the comments. Hit the like button and if you read this far I’d love it if you subscribed to my blog.

Until next time,

September TBR: I Haven’t Done One Of These In Ages!

Hello all,

Lots of things happening in September. September first is my birthday!!! 🎂🎉🎂 Happy birthday to me!!! (I’ll be 32 for those curious.)

Series September is also going on, meaning you try to knock out as many series as possible.

Magical Readathon is happening but I doubt I’ll participate in that one.

Becca’s Bookopolathon which I think I misspelled lol, is also happening. I’m not sure I will participate in this yet or not?

Big Books September is something I’m doing for myself in reading as many big books as I can seeing as we’re at the home stretch of the end of the year.

Here’s my potential tbr subject to change:

All the books I want to read!

Now I have read Eragon books 1 + 2 but I don’t think I’ve read book 3 and I know I haven’t read the last one.

I have read the Poppy War but not the remaining two.

I have read ALL of Pawn of Prophecy first original set up until the second series midway through.

And I’ve read book one of Sabriel but not the rest.

See a theme going here? Lol. I’m hoping to grab these from my local library and finish these all off hopefully. The rest I haven’t listed are ones that I’ve not read. These are some extras that I’m contemplating for series + big books:

Extra books I’ve been meaning to read!

I probably won’t get to all of these lol. And I’m still struggling in writing reviews, but I really am behind and hopeful that September can be my catch up month. Y’all can join me in #BigBookSeptember. I’d love for you to spread the word! Just tag me on Twitter as @Lovesbookandtea! What’s your tbr looking like? Read any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

My Currently Reading Pile

We all have TBR piles that just keep on stacking up, whenever we see new books coming out, or when we see friends recommending books. My pile is currently respectable, if a bit long. I’m almost done reading The Sisters Mederos, and thoroughly enjoying it, but after that comes several books from the library that I seriously need to get read/reviewed/returned. Here’s my stack of books that I’m working my way through!:

 

These aren’t all the books on my TBR, of course, but these are the most immediate ones on my kindle and nightstand. I should have a review up and ready for The Sisters Mederos in the next few days, and continue knocking down others on my current tbr in the process.

In other exciting news, I sent off my first manuscript to a publisher! Fingers crossed, everyone!
