I feel like every time I post on Wednesday, I’m keeping on track. Nothing planned for Wednesday is where I want them to be. This is a short note to let you faithful few know what I am doing. I am going to briefly talk about two books, I’m currently listening to on Audible; two books I will start to listen to this week and a book I am reading with no audio and planning to complete end of the week.
These are four books I’m listening to. Except for Hollywood Homicide by Kellye Garrett, all the books are sequels. I didn’t know it when I bought the Dating Plan by Sara Desai. I will elaborate further in the posted review. Full disclosure and all that The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal is a relisten. I have posted my thoughts on The Calculating Stars and decided to continue. Especially when I heard from the author herself she is writing the fourth book in the series. I will most likely be writing a review on Blade Song and Night Blade together. Because all of these books are audios, I will speak a little bit about the narrator as well. Bringing a story to life with your voice is a skill that not everyone has. I have learned this after listening to over 100 books.
This is the last book, I am going to write about and it will be in the series of YA books that tricked me. Just joking, I bought this book because I like the summary and this cover. It is so pretty. I have moved away from Young Adult years ago, however, there are a few that catch me once or twice a year. A good story is a great story at the right time. This story is intriguing enough to keep me reading.
In the past, I have posted a reading list that was more than ambitious. I kind of set myself up for failure. With this accountability post, I am using this small list as a test. The goal is to complete at least 3 of these books by the end of the week. I am still giving myself a week to post the first review. Next week’s Wednesday post will be a status report or maybe a hot-take.
Writing decent reviews is also a skill that can be learned but to write a review that inspires someone to either pick up that book or make talking points, is a form of greatness. I hope this short post finds you all doing well. Please leave a comment, like, or follow.
