First off, big shout out to Lisa, Jorie and imyril for running another fabulous Wyrd and Wonder event! I had a lot of fun writing some fantasy inspired posts (links below), and having just a little extra reason to read some fantasy (not that I ever need a reason). I made good progress this month, reading four books and starting a fifth, and I’m especially impressed as two of those were 500+ pages. Of course, I miiiight have delayed starting MASTER ARTIFICER this month because I was daunted by the roughly 900 pages it contains, but I’ve committed to getting through it in June.
Great Series Read Update
Once again, promising progress made on series! I made time for a backlist read, BEFORE THEY ARE HANGED, getting through book two in the FIRST LAW series. Hoping to find time for the final book this summer! I also read my ARC of THE HOUSE OF ALWAYS, bringing me to book 4 out of 5 in that series; the final book won’t be released until next year, so for now the A CHORUS OF DRAGONS series can sit comfortably in my “up-to-date” section.
Next month is looking promising, with a couple of trilogy finales coming up, plus I SWEAR I’m going to get to QUEENSLAYER next month – I want to finish the SPELLSLINGER series before the summer ends!
