Time again for Random Tag Tuesday! This one seems appropriate since, well, we’re stuck at home.
What Are You Currently Reading?
The Traitor Baru Cormorant, by Seth Dickinson. Don’t want to say too much about this yet, but I am really enjoying it so far. Should be posting a review soon(ish).
What’s Your Favourite Can’t Leave The House Activity?
Taking time to relax and do whatever I want at that particular moment. Quarantine hasn’t provided me with any extra free time and has perhaps even reduced that already precious commodity so I’ve come to really value the quiet moments.
A Book I’ve Been Meaning To Read Forever
I’ve always wanted to start Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series but never have. By all accounts it sounds like something I’d enjoy, but I’m just wary of the length and worry it’s been built up too much for me at this point.
An Intimidating Book On Your TBR
I don’t think I have any that fit this prompt. They’re all books I actually want to read, though the order I get to them will depend on what’s going on in my life when I’m looking for a book.
Top 3 Priority Books On Your TBR
I don’t have any priorities at the moment, but once they become available (hopefully this year), the next books in the Mistborn and The Expanse series will be read immediately.
Recommend A Short Book
The Black God’s Drums, by P. Djeli Clark. An amazing and captivating fantasy/historical fiction novella that captures the feel and magic of one of my favorite cities, New Orleans.
Recommend A Long Book
Way of Kings, Brandon Sanderson. The 1,008 page beginning of the Stormlight Archive, an ambitious series that takes place within the author’s Cosmere universe and is slated to run for ten books. It’s an amazing series full of great stories and amazing characters, but it sure looks like it’s going to be a long one. For good measure, the follow-up novels have been getting progressively longer, checking in at 1490 and 1652 pages, respectively.
Something You’d Love To Do While Stuck At Home
Clean and organize. I haven’t made as much headway here as I would have liked while stuck inside.
What Do You Plan On Reading Next?
I actually don’t know. I have a vague list, but it’s really going to depend on what my mood is when I’m ready to pick up another book.
