I don't have any real goals for this read-a-thon, since I've been in a kind of reading... slump? I don't really want to call it a slump, but I definitely having been reading a lot, at all, definitely not as much as I'd like to. And my TBR for February is ridiculous so I really need to get on it (I've already strayed off course).
However - I would like to finish at least something every day (novel, novella, short story, single issue comic - just something). And I have quite a few things I'm excited about reading or that I'd like to read this week. I'm going to give some examples, but it's definitely subject to change (could change 100%, it's never sure with me, honestly).
First, currently reading - I'd like to finish The Southern Reaches trilogy, which I've finished the first book of. And I'd also like to make some progress in Spook and A Tale of Two Cities, but those two I'm not going to try to finish since they're slower reads.
Other possibilites of things I might pick up:
- Smoke and Mirrors OR Trigger Warnings by Neil Gaiman
- Shadow's Edge and Beyond the Shadows by Brent Weeks (chunky, chunky fantasy, but I read book one during BoB 12 and these are two and three and I want to know what happens).
- Kushiel's Dark (Phedre's Trilogy #1) by Jacqueline Carey (a reread, maybe a reread will help?)
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (maybe I am ready. I finally might be ready. I've read the first two books twice so far, maybe I should move on)
- Showa, A History of Japan: 1939-1944 by Shigeru Mizuki
- The Angel (Red Years Quartet #2) by Tiffany Reisz
- others, more. So many books are stacked around me waiting to be read. Way too many.
Looking at the list, I don't really have any light reads - in size or in content, maybe I should find something to slip in there to kind of brighten the mood. Any suggestions?
