So thanks to a combination of factors, I finished quite a lot this week! This is mostly down to the fact I’m off work. I’m a teacher, so we’re on Easter holidays at the minute, and although I’ll have to go in for a couple of days, when you combine that with social distancing I have a lot more free time! Put that together with the OWLs readathon, Page-A-Thon and an unexpected Bout of Books and I’m feeling motivated to read lots! I also saw Ellyn’s post on trying a 30 in 30 and (somewhat foolishly) have decided to give it a go as well! I’ll be back at work halfway through the month (though maybe remotely) so I’ll be adding plenty of manga and graphic novels to my reading too to try and hit it.
I actually picked up Crescent City mid-March, but didn’t start it until the 1st of April, so I feel like it’s been hanging over me for ages even though it hasn’t! I’m enjoying it but I’m also finding it quite slow – I’m just over a third of the way through and don’t find myself desperate to pick it up in my free time. I’m hoping that’ll change as I get more engrossed and that I can get this finised this week.
I was planning to read The Inheritance for my Arithmancy OWL, which is all about reading outside your favourite genre(s) but I just read yet another rave review for The Binding, so I’m switching that in instead. I have a copy of on my shelf and keep avoiding it because it’s historical fiction, which I used to love but haven’t really read in years. Having said that, Temeraire is kind of alternate history fantasy and I really enjoyed that so I figure it’s time to give historical fiction another chance! My next manga choice will be Assassination Classroom, again because it’s been so highly recommended.
