My prayers to the snow spirits have been answered with a foot of snow and two days without classes! Unsurprisingly, I’m not too distraught about how having class, though sitting in my dorm for 48 hours straight isn’t my favorite thing either. I’ve been using the time to catch up on homework and read. So much reading! I’ve contemplated doing one of those 50 Book Challenges or at least keeping track of what I read this year, but I think we all know my track record when it comes to following through on these things (*ahem* this blog *ahem*).
Still, I’m always willing to give it a shot. So here’s what I’ve read (and that I can remember) so far this year:
-The Throne of Glass series (Sarah J Maas): books 1-3 plus Assassin short stories
–Immortality Bites series (Michelle Rowen): books 1-8
–The Curse Workers series (Holly Black): books 1-3
–The Modern Faerie Tales (Holly Black): books 1-3
–The Darkest Part of the Forest (Holly Black)
–The Selection series (Kiera Cass): books 1-3
–The Blood of Eden series (Julie Kagawa): books 1 & 2, waiting for the 3rd to arrive!
–Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (Mindy Kaling)
–The Troupe (Robert Jackson Bennett)
–Wonder (R.J. Palacio)
–Harvesting the Heart (Jodi Picoult)
–150 Pounds (Kate Rockland)
–China Dolls (Michelle Yu & Blossom Kan)
-Musicals: My Fair Lady, Little Women, 42nd Street, The Fantasticks, Gypsy, Guys and Dolls
-Plays: Design for Living, Sylvia, The Motherfucker with the Hat, Peter and the Starcatcher, Agnes of God
-Plus quite a few re-reads
Finished The Eternity Cure this morning and the final book of the trilogy is being shipped right now! Excited to read it!
You may notice a trend. I’m a big fan of fantasy: the more faeries, vampires, or princesses, the better! If that’s not your thing, fine, but no judgement please.
