With the beginning of the new year I am going to try doing a monthly to be read list again. I ended up stoping the middle of last year and just planning five books ahead. However, this year I want to bing read more authors - meaning I want to read the complete list of more authors. I also have an amazing book planner from OwlCrate that will hopefully keep me more focused, on my reading and managing my blog.
I noticed that in 2018 I stopped reading as much non-fiction. I love non-fiction books. While they may not be as popular they are very stimulating. I have made it a goal to add one non-fiction book to my TBR list each month. I have also decided to give me a freebie book. This is a book that I want to read without bing reading the entire author’s work. The rest will be bing reads or debut authors. I have been doing something similar to this for about two months now and I really enjoy it. I will, of course, break from this when there is a readathon. I will use that time to read all the books that I have been collecting in the meantime.
The Liar’s Key
The Wheel of Osheim
by Mark Lawrence
How am I still reading Mark Lawrence? Oh yes, he is releasing books as fast as I am reading them. Not quite, but close enough. Since I started bing reading Lawrence he has released Bound - a short story in his Book of The Ancestors series. He also has four books realeasing in 2019. Yes - FOUR BOOKS! I actually paused reading his books for a reading challenge. I am excited to get back into The Red Queen’s war trilogy. I am also excited for another jaunt with The Book of the Ancestor’s world.
Waiting on Wednesday is a series that is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday I will present a new book that I am waiting to be released. This is a way to help me to stay current on my favorite authors and to let you know what to expect in 2019 and beyond.
I have been meaning to bing read Nicole Conway for a while now. I really need to put her next on my list. I own all of her books. I love her book Mad Magic, and am intrigued by her Dragonrider Legacy series.
On March 5, 2019 she will be releasing the first book in a new series. The Spirits of Chaos appears to be a young adult fantasy series. I am not sure if it methodologically based, or more just old time magical powers resurface. Either way it looks like an interesting read.
Hopefully by March I will be caught up on Conway's books and will be waiting for the start of her new series.
I hope that you are all having a Merry Christmas!! I cannot wait to see everyone’s Christmas Book Hauls.
