A biweekly post updated every other Wednesday detailing my current reading projects and what new titles I’ve added to my to-read list. Title links go to Goodreads, and if you have an account there feel free to friend me! I’d love to see what you’re reading and/or planning to read.

Date Finished: September 7, 2019
This was the best book I’ve read this year. The very last line leaves you in speculation even as Kay so nicely and poignantly wraps everything up. This will be an elaborate review when I get to it, but I highly, highly recommend.

Is this a fanfiction of the Book of Job, because it seems like the devil wants to torment Faust in a similar way, and God is like, “Eh, why not?”
Title: Traitor’s Blades
Series Title: Greatcoats
Author: Sebastien de Castell
Date Added: March 5, 2017

I did not even realize I was almost halfway through this. I read about two chapters per day. I find it funny that things that bothered me in The Lies of Locke Lamora come off perfectly fine when Falcio says them. I’m hoping I can figure out what the difference is by the time I review, but I’ve already recommended this to my Evil Wizard friend (Editor’s Note: Huh.) Omg what are you doing here???
Title: Kushiel’s Dart
Series Title: Phèdre’s Trilogy
Author: Jacqueline Carey
Date Added: February 21, 2012
Date Started: August 23, 2019
I’m making progress on this. I had to renew it at the library since it’s due this Friday, and I’m clearly nowhere near finished. If I could read fifty pages a day, I’d be done in 20, but I think I’ll have to make due with two chapters or so (they’re short).
Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018
I’ve been slacking on this book. Haven’t made any progress, but I’m hoping to jump back in on Friday when I have it scheduled to read.
I have six more books to finish to succeed in my goal of 20 before the end of the year. Will I make it? Probably :p
