Tomorrow We Read

Tomorrow is Read-A-Thon :D I've made very hermit like plans this year and will mostly be reading rather than checking in online. So, I'm just leaving a post now for any cheerleaders who might want to come and say hi. Thanks so much for dropping by anyone - cheerleaders are so valuable and I always love getting their comments of encouragement.

In other reading news I feel like making reading plans for next month aside from the couple of projects I am working on with people. I just can't decide which set of plans to fix on so I thought I'd see if anyone had any opinions. There are two choices:

Plan One - Books Recommended By Friends

Mission: Spend May reading some of the many book recommended to me by friends.

"Twilight Robbery" - Francis Hardinge
"Rosemary and Rue" - Seanan McGuire
"Captain Marvel: In Pursuit of Flight" - Kelly Sue DeConnick
"The Disreputable History of Frankie Landeau Banks" - E. Lockhart

Plan Two - Complete the Series

Mission: Complete some of the many, many series I've started but haven't finished (mostly because the end of a series is weirdly sad even when you really want to know what happens).

Books 3 & 4 of the Queen's Thief Series - Meghan Whalen Turner
"The Shadowed Sun" - N K Jemisin
"Rapture" - Kameron Hurley
"Monsters of Men" - Patrick Ness
Breaking Dawn" - Stephanie Myer
"Cold Steel" - Kate Elliott
"Half a Crown" - Jo Walton

Want to help me make hard choices? Then leave a comment below. And if you think there's anything I should add to either list let me know :)

Yay Read-a-thon. =D I vote for Rosemary and Rue, personally, for a start. It's a good short one and I got sucked into that series after that book.

I need to read Francis Hardinge, too. And God's War by Kameron Hurley - looks like you're ahead of me there.

I hope you enjoy your reading if you don't update during the Read-a-thon!

Peta here! Really must work out my log in details! Hadn't realised it was read-a-thon time and if it's rainy tomorrow then I'm ditching my plans and replacing them with reading some stories! I keep meaning to read The Disreputable History so looking forward to seeing what you think.

Although... you really should finish the Queen's Thief. It might be time for a re-read but TBR pile is toppling as ever :(

Captain Marvel and Queen's Thief \o/

If you haven't read the Steerswoman series, I would recommend it so much, I haven't the words to adequately praise it. (ps it's really great)

Which plans are you most excited about? :-)

Oh, Queen's Thief series for sure. You need to get out in front of that. Conspiracy of Kings came out in 2010, so for sure within the next two years there'll be the next Queen's Thief book, which I've been told contains an elephant. :p

Enjoy your hermit reading! I'm very envious. I'm going to a street fair today with some friendly acquaintances I'm trying to turn into friends, and although I love street fairs more than almost anything in this life, I'm anxious about having a whole long day of all extroversion. Reading at home would be nice.

Queen's Thief! That's a series worth continuing.
I kind of liked Monsters of Men, too.
