I got to hangout with my “Camp Book Club” friends (L. & S.) this morning over video chat. We talked about the books we’ve been reading, the two series we’ve been working our way through as a group (The Queens of Renthia and The Innkeeper Chronicles), and the books we want to read next. We also talked about current events and politics (“as you do”). It was the best. I love my Camp Book Club friends, and not just because I now have a plan that might extract me from my reading slump, but that part is good, too. 🙂
I’m putting this here so that I don’t forget. Sort of like a “to do list.” After talking it over with L. & S., here’s what I’m planning to read (and hopefully finish) in March:
- Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds — This one is already in progress, but it’s going to be a slow read.
- The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst — I’m even more pumped to finish this series after talking about book one with L. & S.
- Skyward by Brandon Sanderson — This has been on my list for a while and has been bumped up so I can discuss it with L. & S. next month. I’m past due to read some Brandon Sanderson and feel a bit weird that this is going to be my introduction to his writing, but L. read it, recommends it, and wants to discuss it, so I’m in.
- Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan — I read the first chapter after posting my reading wrap-up for February, and it was compelling enough that I think I’m going to keep going.
- Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman by Anne Helen Petersen — This book has been on my radar for a while now, and I needed a new audiobook to listen to while doing chores and whatnot. So I added this and two others to my holds list at the library. This one came up first, so this is going to be my audiobook selection for March.
- The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite — Another one that I’ve been planning to read for a while, but it keeps getting pushed off the first screen of books on my Kindle, so I forget about it. This one is also getting bumped up so I can read it for next month’s Camp Book Club hangout.
That’s six books for March. Too many? Possibly. I’m not sure I’ll finish all of them, but I’m feeling good about this list.
