Currently Reading | Some random thoughts

So I finally, finally picked A Conjuring of Light back up (it’s been 2 months) and I feel like I’m no longer in a slump with it anymore, yay!!  (Okay so I also put it down cause I was super behind on ARC reading…).

I started This Mortal Coil which comes out…Tuesday….might not make it in time for that one.  I’m only 50 pages in and it’s so far half action and half science-talk-explanation-stuff so I’m kind of 50/50 on my feelings for it right now.

And then there is The City of Brass which I am only 1 and a half chapters into but it’s kind of already pulling me in so, definitely some high hopes there!

So, what is everyone else currently reading and what are your thoughts?

Shout Out to my Favorite, Libba Bray

I’ve mentioned that Libba Bray is my favorite author right?  (Confession, still need to read Beauty Queens.)  Well, read this interview from EW and see just how amazing she is and seriously I need to meet her one day.  (I’ll probably clam up and not say anything but still.)

It’s all about feminism and females authors and in the movie business and just…amazing.  She’s amazing.  I love her so much.

#24in48

So luckily for me, I just discovered the #24in48 read-a-thon this morning!  I mean, it would have been better if I had discovered it earlier, but hey it’s never too late, right?

Last night I had told myself I needed to spend more time reading today, and look, incentive!!  So I decided to sign up!

The goal of the read-a-thon is to read for at least 24 hours in a 48 hour window of time (from Saturday Jul 22nd to Sunday July 23rd.)  I can guarantee now that I probably won’t be getting all 24 hours in because I have work tomorrow, but I can try.  Sadly it’s also almost 11am where I am right now so that puts me a little behind.

Anyway, I am planning on reading The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski for the most part, and hopefully some more of A Conjuring of Light and Just One Damned Thing After Another.

Now to answer to the intro survey questions:

  1. Where in the world are you reading from this weekend? I am from New Jersey, USA!
  2. Have you done the 24in48 readathon before?  Nope!  First Time!  I’ve done a 24 hour read-a-thon though!  Don’t think I finished that one….
  3. Where did you hear about the readathon, if it is your first?  I saw it trending on twitter!
  4. What book are you most excited about reading this weekend? Probably The Wood and A Conjuring of Light (if I get to it)
  5. Tell us something about yourself.  Um…I’m a full-time bookseller and freelance lighting designer who is inconveniently afraid of heights 🙂
  6. Remind us where to find you online this weekend.  Here, twitter, instagram, and sometimes tumblr!

I’m looking forward to all the reading I am hopefully going to get done this weekend!!
