Today, I am off to the magical world of… well, the cottage. But it’s going to be freakin’ magical! Why? Two reasons. One, this is the first time in awhile I’m giving myself full, 100% permission, not to do any work for more than two days in a row. No writing, no review requests, no NetGalley, no book marketing. The one exception to this is that I’m taking up a few chapters of Erica’s latest WIP, but everyone know that reading Erica Crouch’s writing is never actually work, just pure poetic awesomeness.

So, what am I going to be doing with all this free time. Well, that brings us to thing number two! READING! So far this year has been so crazed that every attempt I make to participate in a readaton has has middling results at best. I’m on track with my Goodreads reading goal (60 books, out of 100), but at this point last year, I was blowing this number away. I take my yearly reading goal weirdly seriously. And that is what this week is all about. Books, books, and more books.

Here is a small, off the top of my head, sampling of some of the books (both physical and digital), I’ll be bringing with me.

– Fear by Michael Grant
– Cast in Sorrow by Michelle Sagara
– Once We Were by Kay Zhang
– Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood
– Altered by Gennifer Albin
– Countdown by Michelle Rowen
– Witchstruck by Victoria Lamb
– The Woken Gods by Gwenda Bond

I’ll also be taking a trip to my favorite used book store to hand over a huuuggee bag of books and bring home some new pretties of my own. I have way more than I can handle on my TBR shelves in fantasy and YA right now, but I’m always looking to build up my non-fiction library.

So, here’s to a week of great reading! I’ve got one or two posts scheduled to go up this week, but hopefully I’ll be back with some fantastic new books to recommend when I get home.
