Not much to report today. Within one hundred pages of finishing Voyager. I really have no idea where this one is headed in terms of a climax…it’s been a little aimless the last few chapters, but I’m sure it’s building to something. We’ll see what. And then for tomorrow’s update, I should have a new book to report! Which one…even I don’t know, you’ll just have to come back and see.

I’m still enjoying Voyager but I’m definitely feeling the length of it, what with keeping track of my reading so closely this week. I am hoping to finish this one up by/on Friday and use Saturday to read something short and light off my TBR (maybe Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover? Not sure yet) before jumping in to All The Light We Cannot See, which I want to have read by next Wednesday for IRL book club.

Today’s challenge was so. fun. I got to write a little haiku about Voyager:

And these are tons of fun to read! You can really tell who is loving their current read and who isn’t.

Voyager is still going well, overall. It had a bit of a slow transition section that I was slogging through a little last night and early today, but now it’s roared back and is crazier than ever, which is saying quite a lot, given everything else happening in these books.

Absolutely loving Voyager so far. Book 2 in this series dragged a bit, but I’ve been totally sucked back in with this one. Tomorrow will be another busy day of working, so I’m sure I won’t get more than another 100 pages done, but I am so happy with that number for today and for getting nearly 300 pages into this book in only two days–the other two each took me more than a week to finish and at this rate, this installment should take half that time.

Who’s excited for Bout of Books? I know I am!

My last few Bout of Books have been a little disappointing. I start out all excited and then car breaks down or work gets super busy or something and I wind up reading even less than a normal week, but let’s hope that that doesn’t happen this time.

I’d like to use the week to make a nice dent in the number of books on my TBR, by starting and finishing some of the shorter ones, especially since the #crushyourtbr readathon is happening at the end of Bout of Books, over the weekend, and I’d like to join in on that one as well. But I also need to read All the Light We Cannot See for a (IRL) book club I’ve just joined and I probably won’t completely abandon the Outlander books either (I’m currently reading Dragonfly in Amber and I spoiled myself, and I’m pretty sure I’ll want to roll right into Voyager when I’m done), so we will have to see what I get all the way through. Even if I don’t crush the number of novels on my tbr, I will try to get through bunches of pages.
