Hi, remember me? I kind of disappeared for a while, didn’t I. Well, I’m back now. At last I think I am, so I thought we’d have a bit of a catch up before normal posting resumes.
Where have I been?
Mostly writing my dissertation. Not a very exciting answer I know. But I submitted that monster earlier in the month and now I’m done with school (again) and am seriously going to have to start applying for jobs.
As I’m writing this I’ve just finished Dark Age by Pierce Brown, which has been taking me forever, even though I love it to pieces. I’m currently reading The Testaments by Margaret Atwood, and I’ll be picking up Wilde About the Girl by Louise Pentland, the second book in her contemporary trilogy, to read over the weekend. On my kindle I’m 77% of the way though a historical romance called You And No Other by Cynthia Wright. I’m also participating in a Raven Cycle read-a-long where we’re reading one of the books each week this month, so I’ll be starting The Dream Thieves later today. And finally, I’ve been listening to the Illuminae audiobook on and off for the past month or so.
Other than finishing all my current reads my plans for the month are pretty relaxed. On my kindle I’m hoping to also read Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King, completing my re-read of the quartet. I also want to re-read The Wicked King because Queen of Nothing is going to be on us before I even realise, and I do not feel prepared. In terms of hard copies, once I’ve read Wilde About the Girl, I want to pick up Gideon the Ninth, which was the August Illumicrate book. After that I’m thinking about re-reading Vicious and Vengeful. Can you belive I’ve only read Vengeful once? It’s a tragedy.
Honestly, I don’t really know what my blogging plans are. I’ve got a couple of comic reviews drafted and just waiting for me to format them properly, and I really enjoyed writing them so I hope you enjoy reading them. I don’t have any book related stuff drafted so I’m not sure what will be posted, but I’m thinking about writing something about upcoming release because I have a lot of preorders at the moment. If you have any suggestion then I’m all ears. I don’t know what my posting schedule is going to be, so I’m not making any promises, but I should be around more now that I’m done with my MA.
Thanks for reading, and I will hopefully speak to you all very soon. Don’t forget that if you missed me very much I’m always active on my Twitter, and sometimes active on my Tumblr, and always lurking, if nothing else, on my Instagram.
What about you? I want to know everything! What have you been up to over the summer? What are you currently reading? What’s been a recent favourite read?
