Yep, it’s that time again and for some reason I hadn’t got round to properly signing up, offering to run a mini-challenge, or even arranging a stack. Terrible, ain’t it? I’m in the middle of a month where I’m reading female authors only, so I’m assembling a quick list to give me something to grab no matter what — though goodness knows, I’ll grab anything from my backlog if that’s what I happen to be in the mood for.
I don’t know if I’m going to make it the full 24 hours this time; my anxiety tends to spike when I’m tired, I’ve been having a lot of headaches, and I’m just not that great at staying up all night anymore. But we’ll see how it goes.
Reading apparatus: iPad Mini for books on Blloon/Scribd; Kobo Mini for ebooks; dead tree books aplenty. As usual, I’m gonna divide my stack up into a couple of categories and try to read at least one thing from each category.
–A Darker Shade of Magic, V.E. Schwab
–Touch, Claire North
–Batgirl, Gail Simone
–Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi
–The Buried Life, Carrie Patel
–Shades of Milk & Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal
–Magic Study, Maria V. Snyder
–Graceling, Kristin Cashore
–Touch Not the Cat, Mary Stewart
–Gifts, Ursula Le Guin
–Guardian of the Dead, Karen Healey
–Alif the Unseen, G. Willow Wilson
–Karen Memory, Elizabeth Bear
–Curtsies and Conspiracies, Gail Carriger
–The Winter Sea, Susanna Kearsley
–The Lie Tree, Frances Hardinge
–The Burning Land, Victoria Strauss
–The Just City, Jo Walton
–Dark Triumph, Robin LaFevers
–A Court of Thorns & Roses, Sarah J. Maas
Some of these I need to refresh my memory on because oh, how I owe a review.
For this evening, I’m going to play enough Assassin’s Creed III to sate my current obsession with replaying the games, load my ereader, and try to finish Voyage of the Basilisk (Marie Brennan), so I have a fresh slate for tomorrow. I’ll put up a progress post tomorrow afternoon before we start, in lieu of my usual review post. Any regulars on the blog taking part?
