One thing I’ve wanted to do for a while is boost the number of books I’m reading. I set a goal to read 3 books this month, so I can start working through my modest TBR pile. I don’t really have time to review books anymore, but I thought I’d start keeping a list of what I’m reading. I tend to lose things in my Goodreads shelves, so instead, I thought I’d log my reading habits on my blog, starting each month with a look at what I’m working on.
For this month:
As a Sword In My Bones by Jessica Joiner
I picked this one up for my eReader a while back after it came recommended in a reader group. I started it last week. It’s a little slow to get going in the first chapter or two, but then hints of political intrigue start building and the reader’s collection of puzzle pieces kicks off. A bit more along the lines of historical fantasy than what I’m used to, but I’m still curious to see where it goes.
Song of the Dragon by Tracy Hickman
Tracy Hickman is a favorite of mine, so when I saw this in a 25 cent bin at a thrift shop up where my parents live, I was a little surprised to see it in a super rural farming community… but also eager to snap it up. I’ve actually already cracked this one open, too–I usually have one paperback and one ebook going at the same time and I read them in different situations. Right now I’m 4 chapters in and it’s been nothing but a great big battle. Ironically, now that the battle is close to winding down, things are finally starting to get interesting!
Dragon’s Code by Gigi McCaffrey
Once upon a time, I lived and breathed Pern books. I was less enthusiastic about Todd’s installments because the man couldn’t keep his canon straight. Dragons and whers changing color between books, characters mixed up… oh, it was dreadful. I hadn’t heard anything about a new Pern installment, but this one is about Piemur (!!!) so I’m willing to give Gigi a chance to impress me.
Haha… unintentional Pern pun…
