Recent Updates and Currently Reading | May 17

I'm having a perfectly bookish weekend so far.

Friday was my birthday so I spent my time free time reading and playing games with my family.

Yesterday David from FanFiAddict hosted #MAYDAYcon on YouTube. The panels were all excellent. If you missed it, the recordings are available on his YouTube channel.


I'm also attending Flight and Foundry this weekend which is how I will be spending my day today.

Posted Last Week


Book Review | The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence ⭐⭐⭐★★

On My Wishlist {29}

Book Review | The Apocalyptic Mannequin by Stephanie Wytovich ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Finished Reading


Blood Countess by Lana Popovic Rated Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo Rated

What an amazing reading week! I read and loved both Blood Countess by Lana Popovic and Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.

Currently Reading


The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

Even though I just started reading The Hero of Ages, I can feel the emotion and the book hangover building knowing this is the last book in Mistborn Era 1.

Recent Acquisitions


Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey Fellside by M.R. Carey

After reading and loving The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey, I realized I may have made a mistake deciding not to read Fellside and Someone Like Me. I decided to go back and fill in these holes in my reading.


So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  1. So glad you loved Ninth House! I may break away from my planned reading this week and read it, so excited😁 And I've read both Fellside and Someone Like Me and loved both of them. They are really different from each other, too😁

    1. Yay!! Knowing you loved Koli, too, that confirms how much I need to go back and read Fellside and Someone Like Me. I hope you love Ninth House. I was unsure about it at first, but it just builds and gets better and better.

    1. Thank you!! Ninth House is definitely a book that continues to build and reveal through the whole thing. It's one I wouldn't discourage you from having another go with.
