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.

I’m getting really into this.  It reminds me of Dune, but with a more interesting and female main character lol.  I’ve been talking to the friend who lugged this book around with her all through high school, and she had a friendly “I told you so” about my Dune observations (it’s also another reason why she has no interest in Dune).  I’ve read Dune, which I enjoyed, but I wish I’d been into sci-fi back in high school because I would’ve loved this.

This one is a lot of fun.  I’m really hoping that usurper duke goes down in flames.  Maybe…catches a disease or something :p

The wrench was thrown in…kinda.  Walter thought his search for the book was over, but it seems like it will continue.  I wonder if he’ll find his father at the end of his search for the book.

Ugh, I’ve been so bad with reading this.  It’s the book I most put off because it takes a lot of energy to read since it’s for research and I need to take notes.  It’s not the same as casual reading.


I still need to move my music to my new computer and figure out how to keep iTunes from crashing it again. 

Two of the books I purchased “this week” I actually preordered.  The FFVII book and The Ippos King.  I’d been waiting for the later for years.  I LOVED that series, so I can’t wait to read it.  I’m currently using the Vinge book from the library as my “Kindle.”

There was something else I wanted to mention, but my grandma brain forgot lol.   I would recommend reading Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death.”  It seems…topical lol.  I might need take some time to do so myself 😉
