Recent Updates and Currently Reading | October 6

Between having a head cold and being in the middle of two chunky reads, I didn't finish any books this week. I'm enjoying what I'm reading, though!

I'm going to see Joker today, and I'm nervous! I think it's going to be heartbreaking. I also think Joaquin is going to be amazing.

Posted Last Week

September was a really great month, and I posted my wrap up of all of things I managed to read last month.

I posted my ⭐⭐★★★ review of Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris.

I shared a few books that recently made it onto my wishlist.

I shared my ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ thoughts on To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers.

I also shared what I plan to #ReadforGrace on October 14.

Currently Reading

Keys to the Demon Prison (Fablehaven #5) by Brandon Mull

I'm currently reading Keys to the Demon Prison (Fablehaven #5) by Brandon Mull and Dust by Hugh Howey. I'm enjoying them both!

Recent Acquisitions

My husband's birthday was this past week, and we took the day off to take care of a few things and spend time away from work. While we were out and about, I picked up Rachel Bach's Paradox trilogy. I originally read the first two on ebook so I'm excited to be able to go back and reread them before finally reading the third book. You can read my review of Fortune's Pawn and Honor's Knight. I love this series so much.

Earlier this year I read Rachel Aaron's (Rachel Bach) writing book 2,000 to 10,000 and she talked a bit about writing Fortune's Pawn in 12 days. If you love reading books on the craft, her book is fascinating. It's one I'll likely read again.

Thank you Wicked Run Press for sending me an ecopy of Lullabies for Suffering. I know, I know, I've sworn off of review copies forever, but everyone has a weakness, right? You guys know how much I loved Garden of Fiends. I'm looking forward to diving into this new anthology.

The Secret Commonwealth (The Book of Dust #2) by Philip Pullman - Once again I've had a preorder arrive before having a chance to read the first one. I love the His Dark Materials trilogy so much, and I've been a little terrified to start the prequel series for fear of disappointment. It's time, though! I think I'll save them both for the first of the new year.

My October book from Poetry Magazine arrived this month. It looks very pink and not spooky so we'll see if I get to it this month.

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

This post is being shared as part of Book Date's It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post.

  1. Good to know september was a great reading month for you :) And that's great that you're participating in Read for Grace!

  2. I hope your cold gets better soon!

    I really want to watch Joker as well! Not sure when I will find the time to do so though. I hope you'll enjoy it!

    Your current reads look great! I have wanted to read books by these authors for quite some time now but haven't gotten around to actually reading them.

    Have a great week!

  3. My daughter wants to see Jocker too so I'm really curious to read what you'll think about it!

  4. Sorry you are suffering from a head cold, but at least you are enjoying the books you are reading. I don't really go to the movies, but I feel like all the warnings and speculation surround the Joker can actually do more harm than good.

    1. I was able to steer clear of all of the Joker talk before seeing it. I loved it.

  5. I love the Paradox trilogy, glad you're going to finish with the third book because it's worth it! I think re-reading the first two is a great idea to put you into the mood too :) And wow, I did not know that she wrote the first one in 12 days, that's impressive.

  6. I'm so curious about Joker! And I've already seen a few people say it was good, so even more so. Hope you enjoy!

    I need to read the new chambers book ASAP!!

  7. I hope your cold is clearing up, and you enjoy your newly purchased series.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. I'm torn with seeing The Joker. I miss Heath Ledger so much and he will always be the Joker to me. Hope you are feeling better. At least you have new books to keep you company.

    1. Joker was such a good movie. I'm not a DC fan, but I really liked it.

  9. I want to see The Joker! I hope you enjoyed it. Also, I'm hoping to participate in NaNoWriMo next month so I'll definitely be checking out the book you recommended. Hope you have a great week :)

  10. That sucks about the head cold. I hope you feel better soon. I also hope you enjoyed The Joker. I'm really curious about it but no one I know has been to see it yet.

  11. Eee! I hope you "enjoyed" Joker, though that doesn't really seem to be a fitting word for this film... :)
