Reading Catch Ups

Reading Round Up: 30th Jan – 5th February 2020

I’ve finished my latest graphic novel, which are few and far between anyway and they don’t actually take that much time to read. In fact, there’s not much to talk about really. They’re always done and dusted within an hour, if that. Now I’m onto picture-less books again.

It’s hard to be sad or happy about that because they are two completely different mediums. But I have to give a preference to picture-less books. Graphic novel artists are amazingly talented and I will gladly marvel at the illustrations for ages but there’s just something a bit more immersive about creating your own pictures in your head.

I’m already a quarter of the way through The Night Raven  and loving the sinister mob vibe mixed in with the magic. The magic is actually pretty thin on the ground so far but it’s turning into a great read. Page-turner!

What I haven’t been great at lately is organising my TBR pile. I know what’s on it, I just don’t really know which order to read them in and I end up reading whichever book I see first. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now but I want to get back into organising my books. It’s going to have to be a February resolution.

This completely disorganised system has led me to branch out into reading other books outside the usual urban fantasy/fantasy genres. Which is great, but I probably won’t be able to read them very quickly on account of doing my urban fantasy/fantasy reviews every week. Do you ever wish you just didn’t have a job so you could read all the time?

So the extra-curricular reading is going slowly but it’s interesting reading some non-fiction for a change. The subject? How to Be a Woman – it’s a fairly feminist book in case the title looked misleading.

I’m still on track for my Goodreads challenge but I do like being ahead of my own curves. So the aim is to read a little bit more this week to get ahead for when I go back to work next week. All genres allowed, so long as I keep up with my reviews!

Thanks for reading!
