Hello to all my wonderfully bookish blogger geeks! As always, I try to get this post out as early in the month as possible, but it usually appears around the second week. I know, I suck. But I wanna hear from you! Tell me what you’re reading currently, what’s on your radar and/or your to-read list. Don’t forget to let me know what it’s all about either, as I get a ton of great recommendations on this post. Also, it can be somewhat of a tool for other users looking for a good read or two.
I recently finished Golden Fool, the second book in Robin Hobb’s Tawny Man trilogy, and the fifth book chronicling the sad life of FitzChivalry Farseer. You can find the review I posted yesterday here! I’ll definitely be getting into the next book, Fool’s Fate as soon as possible. I’ve got it all lined up with my Audible account.
But first and foremost on my to-read list would be Aftermath, the latest Star Wars novel, by Chuck Wendig, and the first in-canon novel to detail the events of the fall of the Galactic Empire after Return of the Jedi… or so it seems. I’m already halfway through it and, although definitely not the best new in-canon book I’ve read, one of the most eye-opening. I’ve chosen to read this via hardcover and listen via Audible, so I can just breeze through it, at home and on the go. Should have my review up very soon.
A friend of mine introduced me to the Mistborn audio drama series recently, so I’ll be beginning book one, The Final Empire, very soon in that format. The audio drama is produced by Graphic Audio, and I’ve listened to some of their stuff in the past, so I’m definitely looking forward to this one. As Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors in the fantasy genre, I’ve been dying to read Mistborn for ages.
The Traitor Baru Cormorant, and Last Song Before Night, both debut novels from Seth Dickinson and Ilana C. Meyer respectively, are also on my to-read list. Tor has given me ARCs to read, and though I know little about either, I plan to make the most of their many pages.
It’s an ambitious month for me, but I think I’ll be able to handle it. What about you? Be sure to friend me on Goodreads. And if you’re interested in an 30-Day free trial (which comes with two free audiobooks), check out my post Is Audible Worth It?
