Hey all, Dani here.
Welcome back to my weekly post where I talk about the books I have finished recently, the books I am currently reading, and the books I am hoping to read soon. So, this has been a pretty interesting week for books. I have managed to read a few, and my recent book haul added another nine books to my stack of books I want/need to read.
Of course I haven’t just been reading. I’ve also been occupied with watching shows and movies, as well as playing Dungeons & Dragons and doing Trunk or Treat at work. Honestly, I will take any excuse to dress up in a costume, and getting to see all the reactions from the kids when my fiance and I stayed in character as pirates was so much fun.
Anyway, let’s just go ahead and start talking about books.
Let’s start with the books I have managed to finish in the last week. First up I finished Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul by Nikita Gill, and I definitely plan to write up a review for it sometime relatively soon. Then I moved on to another poetry collection by Gill, this time Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion Fire and Beauty. After that it was time for some more quick reads, and by that I mean a few volumes of manga. I flew through My Hero Academia Volume 15 by Hideo Horikoshi, and then My Hero Academia Vigilantes Volume 2 by Hideyuki Furuhashi. I will have reviews for these ones coming up as well. Then I picked up Fairy Tail Zero by Hiro Mashima, because I needed to know more about the first guild master after starting to see more of her in the anime.
Next up are my current reads. I’m ashamed to say that I’m still working on Access Restricted by Gregory Scott Katsoulis, because I do want to finish reading this, but I’m still nervous about finishing it and having the story be over. I’m also working on reading this cool how-to book about making a living doing nerdy activities like blogging or crafting or cosplay. Finally, I am still deep in my Fairy Tail obsession so I’m reading the single volume prequel about the first master of the Fairy Tail guild, so I am glad to be reading it.
Finally, it is time to talk about what I’m hoping to read. Obviously I have to be careful with this one, as Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is this weekend. You can check out my TBR for this weekend by looking at this post. So the big priority is to finish my current reads before the weekend, but if I need another quick book to pick up, I think I’ll either grab City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab or Damsel by Elana K Arnold.
Well, I guess that is all for today. I imagine that next week’s update will be a pretty good one seeing as how I plan to do a lot of reading during the readathon this weekend. I’ll be back soon with more bookish content.
