Well, it’s autumn here in Australia though Melbourne has decided to celebrate that fact with throwing us what has almost the been the hottest week of the entire summer (typical). So everyone has been inside trying to avoid the heat (or at least, this little bookworm has been inside trying to avoid the heat.) I’ve had a pretty busy few weeks with edits and day jobbing and RITA books to read and other things so am looking forward to the pace slackening off a bit (hopefully with some corresponding slackening off of the temperature) so that I can dive into some reading time.
So here’s the current list of what I’m waiting to get to that’s either recently out or coming soon.
Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs. New Mercy Thompson. ‘Nuff said. Currently on my kindle. I just need some reading time.
Dirty by Kylie Scott (April). Kylie’s Stage Dive series was one of my fave contemporary reads of the last year or so, so I’m very much looking forward to the next iteration of her world and the continued adventures of Vaughn in particular.
Alliance of Equals – Sharon Lee and Steve Miller (I think this was on my sumemr 2015 edition but it’s still not out, so it stays).
The Crossroads of Should and Must – Elle Luna Non fiction that’s been on my radar for a while about following your art and balancing that with real life.
Seven Minutes in Heaven – Eloisa James. Not due until the end of the year but a gal can wait.
A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas
And in Mel’s other hobbies territory, I spotted a book on JRR Tolkein’s Art and Illustrations the other day that is going onto the wishlist. I have always liked his art (the version of The Hobbit I read as a small thing had his drawings and my folks had his Father Christmas letters books which I also loved as a kid).
In audiobook land I’ve been going a bit old school and listening to some Agatha Christie. I’ve read a bit of Christie over the year but by no means a lot, so trying to catch up on some while I’m in a crime sort of mood. Currently listening to And Then There Were None narrated by Dan Stevens aka Matthew Crawley but it’s actually almost too creepy as an audiobook so may have to default back to paper for that one.
As always, too many books, too little time!
