Those of you who have followed my blog since last year know I’m completing a university qualification while I work. My final deadline is in two week’s time, although having to fit this all around work, I’m aiming to give it in a day or two early: just in case anything goes wrong!
However, this plus a sekrit project (news on that in a while), awaiting feedback on a short story submission, working on novel #3, and preparing for another pass at my submitted novel thanks to submission feedback… means I have only completed reading one book this year so far.
Therefore, I’m compiling a “continue-the-series” list because these books are generally 1) short or fast-paced 2) I’m already familiar with the world’s/characters and 3) I trust the books will be to my taste since I’ve read at least 1 in each series already.
So my aims for the next few months are to read the following (in no particular order):
- Mockingjay [#3] (Suzanne Collins)
- The Cormorant [#3] (Chuck Wendig)
- Clariel [#4] (Garth Nix)
- Goldenhand [#5] (Garth Nix)
- (if my heart can take it) Shadowstorm [#6] (Dianne Sylvan)
- The Agency: Vol 5 [#5] (Dianne Sylvan)
- The Spirit Rebellion [#2] (Rachel Aaron)
- (if I dare) The Hammer and the Goat [#1.5] (Peter Newman)
If I can read even 4 of these by October, I’ll be happy.
