Edit: At some point you might notice a strike through with the books listed below. That is because I am making an effort to catch up on those books and I’m keeping track.
I’ve been going through the sequel and trilogy books that have come out this year for me to read and the ones I have read so far. I am so behind on my reading this year that I’m quite surprised with myself.
So far I’ve read 16 books and in the last few years I would have read that many within the first 4-6 weeks of the year. We are about to enter into June and that’s all I’m up to.
I’m giving myself a bit of leniency with that though because I have been quite game nuts lately and going through crazy writing bouts… Still…
There’s also been several books that have come out and are about to come out that I haven’t been able to read.
The ones I have bought after waiting for them (including ones from last year), but still yet to read are the following;
- Sacred Scars by Kathleen Duey (follow on from Skin Hunger)
- The War of The Dwarves by Markus Heitz (follow on from The Dwarves)
- Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine (follow on from Lord of Misrule)
- Fade Out by Rachel Caine (follow on from Carpe Corpus)
- Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine (follow on from Fade Out)
- The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong (follow on from The Summoning)
- The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong (follow on from The Awakening)
- Hunger by Michael Grant (follow on from Gone)
- Death or Glory by Sandy Mitchell (follow on from the Ciaphas Cain omnibus)
- The Serpent Bride by Sara Douglass (follow on from The Wayfarer Redemption series)
- The Kings of Clonmel by John Flanagan (follow on from Erak’s Ransom)
- Halt’s Peril by John Flanagan (follow on from The Kings of Clonmel)
Ones that are out or are about to be available;
- Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead (follow on from Blood Promise)
- Necromancer by Michael Scott (follow on from The Sorceress)
- Lies by Michael Grant (follow on from Hunger)
- The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan (follow on from Forest of Hands and Teeth – I’m still of two minds about it though because I after all this time I can’t decide if it’s worth it or not).
On top of those there’s also all the new books I’ve bought, the old books I’ve still got to read, and the other stand alone novels that are coming out so my new rule is to read everything before I buy no matter how badly I want a new book because I have plenty of books to read for now and have to replace my television. We’ll see how long that lasts.
As for updates – I’ve changed the look again. There’s a lot of great themes for WordPress, but with most of them there’s only certain aspects I like. I think so far I like this one the most (apart from the other one I had with the brown background) and will change the header at some point.
Bookish Ardour also has a new Tumblr which will just have bookish posts not related to this blog and the rss feed if anyone is on Tumblr and interested in checking it out.
