A while back, I made a post about all the books I’d started reading and not yet finished for various reasons. This is a follow up to that because unfortunately, that list has only grown. I think I’ve only completed three of the books that were on that list, have given up on another one and have added a few. For that reason, I will exclude the sciency books that are on this list because those were always going to take me a long time to finish and this list is long enough as it is.
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
This one I haven’t touched at all since my first post. I am really nervous that I will not enjoy it and I’ve been avoiding it. I am still on page 93 of it.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catheynne M. Valente
This is still here as well, but I have made progress on it. I am more than halfway through it and I enjoyed it this far, so hopefully I’ll finish it soon. I am now on page 184.
Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey
Another one that’s still here months later. I did make a little progress on it. Every time I pick it up, I love it so much. I find it so enriching and empowering, but I just don’t pick it up often enough. I am on page 139.
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
This one’s still here as well. I have made some progress on it though. I just need to sit down and read the last couple hundred pages. But this is another one that I just haven’t picked up because I was distracted with other books. I am now on page 433.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
This is another book that I have made almost no progress on. I think I read maybe one chapter since the last post. It kind of intimidates me cause it’s huge and I’m afraid I’ll get sucked into it and not sleep until I finish it. But I do have the week off, so maybe I should just get on with it. I’m on page 35.
The Bat by Jo Nesbo
I haven’t even touched this book in ages. I keep forgetting about it. I’m still on page 157.
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
I picked this up after reading The Cruel Prince. I was really craving some more fae, so I bought this one, but it wasn’t what I was expecting, so I only read a few chapters. I do intend to finish it though. I’m on page 38 of it.
The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
I’ve been re-reading this series. I finished the first book and started this one, but haven’t picked it up in a while. I’m currently on page 69 of it.
A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
This is the book that I’m most actively reading at the moment. I’ve been on an ASoIaF kick since watching the show. I am now on page 459.
What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe
I know I said I would exclude sciency books, but this is a popular science book and not so much an educational book, so it doesn’t need to be studied, just enjoyed. I am currently on page 43 of this.
Can You Solve My Problems by Alex Bellos
I’ve been making my way through this, solving all the puzzles (so much fun!). I’m currently on page 29 of it.
Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Polos
This is a short story collection that I’ve been reading. I haven’t been reading them sequentially, so I can’t say what page I am on, but I’ve read 12 of the 28 stories in it.
