Mephistopheles has finally shown up.  Now things are going to get interesting.

Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline CareyMedia: Hardback (Library)
Progress: 75%

This is due on the 21st, but I’m all but certain to finish it.  I don’t know if I’ve reached or passed the place where I initially stopped, but it’s been so long since I’ve read it, I can’t remember.  I forgot how expansive the story was, though, and how far Phèdre and co travel across the world.  There is one thing I really hope the author addresses, because if she doesn’t, it’s a major miss.

Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018

The Hero With a Thousand FacesMedia: Hardback
Progress: 68%

I’m closer to finishing this than the percentage tells.  There’s about a hundred pages of notes and appendix.


I’m a novel behind again ugh.  I know I’ll finish Kushiel’s Dart before the end of the year, as well as Hero and Faust.  I’m reading Vita pretty fast, so I’ll probably bang that out, but I still need to two more books.  Eh, I can just pick up two fast reads for year end.  I am curious how many pages I’ve read this year because I fee like that should count for something.

Are you set to make your reading goal?

  2. Pages read should totally count! 🙂 I feel like I’ve been at a total stand-still when it comes to reading the past couple months. I finished my reading goal for the year, but in all fairness I set it wayyy lower than normal. Just been too busy. When are we ever gonna get those clones so we can just go ahead and do ALL the things?? 😛
