So I guess you could say that this is a bit late with it being November and all, but lets be honest, Ive been anything but on top of my blogging lately. But I’m now going to start coming back, mostly with bookish and possibly festive things I think, but just going to see how it goes mainly. At some point I may write about why again I had to walk away, though for now I just want to enjoy being back.Right, so my reading. I’ve been in a massive reading slump, forcing myself through the odd book, but generally just not wanting or enjoying reading. Even tried all my own tips and tricks to get over it, reading Harry Potter, reading some of my favourite authors and it just would not shift. But I did it, I think, well I’ve got really into my current read so I’m counting that as being over it!
My current read is the latest Conn Iggulden novel and his first fantasy novel, Darien; Empire of Salt. It is awesome! His novels are automatic buys for me, so was highly intrigued to see how he was with the fantasy genre, and so far he has it mastered; I’m a third of the way through and will be doing a full review once I’m done.
After this I’m going to start a reread of an amazing book, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. I’m so excited to of been given the privilege of reviewing the sequel so I decided it was only right to reread the beauty of the first novel (there may even be a giveaway of the first book soon)!!
I wouldn’t say my plan is too fixed after that, I am hoping to catch up on some of my arcs, as well as probably focus on sequels that I haven’t got to yet- trust me I have a lot, I have a bad habit of reading the first book, buying the whole series and then not picking them up.
All the while, I am still reading the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which it AMAZING! I don’t want to rush this so just picking up a chapter every now and again.
I may even post a picture of my review shelves to let you have a say on what I read over this season. Over the colder months I will probably be sticking mostly to fantasy, it just feels like a snuggle under the blanket with a cuppa sort of genre to me; though to be fair I’m a mood reader, so it could all change.
Do you have any recommendations of what I should read this autumn and winter?
