Timestamp meme

I last did this almost a year ago, so seems about time to do it again!

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll try to write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Hi, it's me again! :DD

This is officially my eighth reading review post of the year, taking the total up to 200 books. 200 books! That's about double my goal for the year, so I'm absolutely and utterly thrilled with how that has all turned out. I've definitely exceeded my expectations for this year, and I look forward to sharing the results with you.

Normal rules are still in effect. Things I really like and would rec are marked with a +, things I really didn't like and would thus anti-rec are marked with a -.

Now, on with the show and I hope you enjoy!

So, yes, indeed! That's another reading review post done, and I can now say that I'm up to 200 books! Which is, uh, a LOT more than I was expecting.

I've still been reading, obviously, and so hopefully I'll manage to squeeze at least one more post out before the end of the year and then a post to finish off all that I've read in 2016 around the beginning of 2017 (which is terrifyingly close). I won't promise anything, because I'm again worried about dropping off the face of the planet for another few months, but I'd like to continue recording all that I've read just so I have my thoughts all in one place.

Hope you enjoyed, again! :D
Just Finished: All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders... And jesus did I hate that book. SO MUCH BULLSHIT, SO MUCH!

Currently Reading: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling! :D

Coming up: Play Dead by Richard Montanari, the next Byrne and Balzano book!
...FFS America about covers it, right?

Just Finished: Minerva by MC Beaton. Which wasn't entirely to my tastes, I should've realised because romance BUT, but was still very funny and good.

Currently Reading: Getting towards the end of In the Time of Dinosaurs by KA Applegate. Which is a great comfort read! :D

Coming up: The 39 Steps by John Buchan.
Hello, and welcome to my seventh reading post of the year! I'm writing this a few weeks in advance, so for all I know the ants could've taken over now and declared all books irrelevant, but at present moment books are still in vogue and this is my next set of reviews for them.

This post should take me up to 175 books read this year, which is comprehensively more than last year and a total that I'm rather pleased with. Ones I'd recommend are marked with a +, ones I'd anti-rec are marked with a -.

On with the show! :D

So, yes! That takes me up to 175 books read this year. And, thankfully, a good chink of them enjoyed at that!

I'm still hopelessly behind on these, so am hoping to get a few more posts along these lines out before the new year. God knows if I'll manage it, work will probably continue to be busy (and hopefully continue to be nice), but it's good to have GOALS.

Hope you enjoyed! :)
Just Finished: Black Widow, Vol. 1: S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Most Wanted. Which was good! But, uh, not very inventive and often disappointingly dull as a result.

Currently Reading: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling! Only a chapter in so far, though.

Coming up: apparently the next Blake and Avery book is arriving tomorrow. So, you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be reading that as soon as possible. <33

Reading Review Post VI: The Review Wolf

Hello, and welcome back to a long overdue feature! The last time I did one of these reading review posts was before I started my new job, which was... Gosh, exactly three months ago now? WHICH IS A WHILE. Obviously my comment about keeping a more regular schedule turned out to be a filthy lie, for which I can only apologise.

But hopefully this'll make up for it! This post should take me up to 150 books read this year. Ones I really liked, and thus would recommend, will be marked with a +. Ones I really disliked, and thus would really not recommend, will be marked with a -

I hope you enjoy!

So, that's up to 150 books read this year! Whatever shall happen next?

Well, I can tell you exclusively right now that I am hella behind again so there may well be a lot of posts like this in the relatively near future. I'm not sure if I'll be able to churn out many, I hesitate to commit to anything for fear of dropping off the face of the internet for another three months and thus failing out of this year entirely, but I'm going to try and catch up as soon as I can. There are a lot of books still to be mumbled over reviewed, after all!

Hope you enjoyed! :)
Just Finished: Soulless by Gail Carriger, which was... Really obnoxious on so many levels? Unpleasantly twee, with a main character who ground my teeth SO MUCH.

Currently Reading: the Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. Which is just as good as everyone said it was!

Coming up: the Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco! Which sounds very to my tastes from everything I've read.

A bird! A plane! A meme!

Currently Reading Wednesday XLI: Sum Read

Just Finished: A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab. Which was alright, but worryingly messy in parts and not as good as the first book in the series

Currently Reading: the Soldier's Scoundrel by Cat Sebastian. Let me tell you, it's really odd to read a book wanting the main characters to bang and knowing that they're definitely going to. :D

Coming up: the Frost Fair by Edward Marston!
