And in blog form instead of vlog!
I was feeling kind of lazy between blogging and working yesterday so I never got to Monday Missions. Now today, look I have dirty hair and I’m kind of sloppy looking after binge reading so I decided that instead of just ignoring the Monday Missions period, health I would do it in blog form.
For those of you who don’t know what the Monday Missions is, treat its a weekly vlog that my dear friend Daisy created on her YouTube channel The Thousand Lives of Daisy. Every week, you come up with your weekly TBR list. On mine, I talk about the books I wanted to read, what I actually read and what I hope to read this week.
Let’s jump in!
What I Wanted to Read:
The Iron Trial
The Indigo Spell
The Fiery Heart
What I Actually Read:
The Indigo Spell
I continued my reread of the Bloodlines series in anticipation of today’s release of Silver Shadows!
The Fiery Heart
I knew I would have to reread this soon because of the movie and so I decided to do so. AND I finished it in about an hour haha.
The Iron Trial
I was about halfway through this and I needed to finish it. So I did!
What I Want to Read:
This came out today! AGH!
Heir of Fire
I’ve had this ARC since ALA last month and I’ve finally ready to dive into it. Its SO huge but I’m ready for it.
I’ve had this one as well since ALA and its a standalone which is something I really need in my life. I can’t wait to read this.
