This month, I plan to read a total of 16 books. Yeah, I know…not likely. But I still want to try! This way I can make up for the horrible reading month that was February. Two of the books I’ll be reading are reference books for my writing. I’m excited to get into them but I’m so bad at making myself read non-fiction. I have never finished a single non-fiction book. That’s how bad it is…
Here are the books I’ve read so far with their ratings, some upcoming blog updates, my reading recap and writing update:
THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS… FOR THE LAST TIME.
A season of endings has begun.
It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world’s sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.
It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.
It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.
This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.
