This year is shaping up to be the year of series, for me. A lot of the books on my TBR are either entire series or sequels. This means that I am doing a lot more re-reading than normal in preparation for these sequels. I don’t know if it’s the weather or my brain, but I am having a hard time reading new things. I feel like I don’t have the attention to want to get into new things. The winter has been hard on everyone in the Midwest, where I live. I feel, in particular, that my brain has been turned into mush and I am struggling in school, in work, and just my every day life.
Currently, I am re-reading the All For the Game series by Nora Sakavic. I originally read the series back in 2017 and it truly has dug its’ claws into me and has not let go. I read it between almost every other book that I have read. I am almost constantly talking about it and looking on the internet for other people talking about it. It is so interesting and well-written and it really has taken over my world. This may be part of the reason why I am struggling with reading new things.
I am planning on re-reading both The Cruel Prince and Children of Blood and Bone so that I can read the sequels! I remember enjoying both books but it has been a while since I read them so a revisit will be necessary. I am also excited to read Madeline Miller’s short story Galatea. I may also re-read Circe just because I loved it so much. I also need to revisit Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On because I believe the next one comes out this year. In addition, The Raven Cycle has a new installment this year about Ronan Lynch and other dreamers so I want to read that whole series again as well. There were parts I remember liking and others I wasn’t too fond of, though overall I really enjoyed the series. I find that most books need to be read again and again. I am naturally a fast reader and find it helpful, and comforting!, to revisit books again and learn new things about them.
How is this new year finding you, void? What new releases are you excited for? I miss the sun. I hope you are well. What is on your TBR this part of the year? Talk soon.
