(Y-12) Quarantined days, Update 16

I have been focused on a few things this last weeks than I have neglected my entries on this blog.

I hope to end this for good.

Right now I am locked in on the sixth volume of the epic story of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Bonehunters, and the return of one of my favorite locations, Raraku, the holy desert.

I am closing on the halfway point of the book, an I have ambitious plans to finish it by Wednesday.

On my quest to reach 40,000 pages, I still have 2,169 pages to go, and about 12 days to do it.

But tonight will be dedicated to a certain red fella and his weird tales.

I found this on my Kindle Unlimited account, and it will be a special treat to close out this busy Sunday.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined days, Update 12

I have been so focused on finishing the fifth volume of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, that I didn’t remember to update my progress.

I am glad to say that I finished yesterday, and to say that this series has an epic scope is not quite making it justice, the book closes on a cliffhanger, as war unravels, so the schemes of the gods.

 I have approached this series as I did a challenging steep hike thru the mountains, used to practice hiking with plans of doing it again, one ascend at a time, with the top always on sight, and most importantly knowing my limits.

It is because of this that I’ll take a break from the series to catch my breath.

I’ll go to the Forgotten Realms, and read the adventures of Farideh on Erin M. Evans’ The Adversary, the third chapter of the multi-author series The Sundering.

On my journey to reach 40,000 pages on this year of reading, I am 6,068 pages away and have 44 days to do it.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, update 11

I start my reading session with 160 pages left on Midnight Tides, according to Bookly I still have about 5 hours left.

Let’s see how this plays out.

Yesterday I read 117 pages, and finished the second volume of The Umbrella Academy , those types of comic book series reminds me why Dark Horse Comics is my favorite publisher.

I have also some Red Sonja comic books in my Kindle to read between chapters of the fifth volume of The Malazan Book of the Fallen.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, update 10

Yesterday was a good day of reading.

I mainly focus on chipping away pages from Midnight Tides, read 101 pages, also read about 50 pages of the second volume of the Umbrella Academy, Dallas.

My plan for today was to finish Midnight Tides, this to keep up with my reading schedule of 49 total books for the year , but to be honest, I am kind of tired today.

So, I’ll read whatever I can today, and tomorrow I’ll take over the world, sorry I mean finish the book.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, Update 9

Another good day of reading.

My total was 158 pages, and I’m 6,699 pages away from 40,000, and there are still 49 days left.

I finishing reading the ninth volume, this is from the Spanish edition, of Hellboy, The Wild Hunt, I can safely say that it is my favorite story arc.

On my book front, Midnight Tides, I read 62 pages, and reached page 301, now comes the interesting part, I have two days until my deadline, and 323 pages to go.

That’s 162 pages per day, caffeine don’t fail me now.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, Update 8

Yesterday was an amazing day.

Maybe I didn’t read a ton of pages, my total was 150,  but I finally caught the rhythm of Midnight Tides, read 54 pages yesterday, and I am very hopeful to finish it by this weekend.

I am currently 385 pages away from finishing the book, and I will focus on this series for the remainder of the year, maybe I will sacrifice reading the 49 books that I set as a goal, but I am determined to see how this amazing epic saga plays out.

Also, I returned to my favorite comic book series, Hellboy, this time it was the story arc The Wild Hunt, which in my opinion is the best of all of the series, I mean Hellboy and Arthurian mythology, what more can you ask for.

With yesterday’s total, my goal of reaching 40,000 pages is only 6,857 pages away, and with 50 days left, that’s about 138 pages per day, I am pretty certain to hit the mark.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, Update 5

My reading is moving along quite nicely, yesterday’s total was 165 pages, and I am down to 7,286 to reach 40,000 pages, and about 54 days to do it.

That’s 134 pages per day, just to keep that in mind.

On my book front, the fifth volume of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Midnight Tides, I read 28 pages and reached page 158 of 624, still have next Sunday as my deadline to finish it, time to put the pedal to the metal.

My goal for this year is to read the remaining books of the epic series, which has 10 volumes.

I finished the second volume of Brian Wood’s Vertigo comics series DMZ, and I plan to read the next three volumes that are available on my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, Update 4

Yesterday was an amazing day.

I got to celebrate my birthday with my wife and kids, had a great piece of steak, and way too many glasses of red wine.

I didn’t read as much as I intended, but it was a really relaxing day.

On my journey thru Midnight Tides, the fifth book of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, I only read 10 pages, and I still have the intention of finishing it by next Sunday, so I see some intense reading sessions in my future.

Also, I started reading Brian Wood’s Vertigo Comics series DMZ, about a second civil war in the United States, situated in New York City, and following the footsteps of accidental journalist Matty.

I finished the first volume and working on the second one, there are five available to read for free in my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

 

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined Days, Update 3

Another great day of reading, I had a total of 255 pages, which leaves 7,616 pages to reach 40,000.

I read 37 pages of Midnight Tides, hopefully, I can pick up the pace, and be finished with it by next weekend.

Also, I finished with the first volume of Coffin Hill, loved it, and fortunately, the next two volumes are available to read for free on my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

And finally, I read the last 4 issues, 9 to 12, of the amazing series of Aliens: Defiance, written by Brian Wood, if you are a fan of movies you should definitely pick this series or for that matter any Aliens series from Dark Horse, I recommend Aliens: Dead Orbit.

I plan to jump into the next volumes of Coffin Hill, read over 60 pages of Midnight Tides, throw some steaks on the grill, chase those down with some red wine, and have a perfect birthday celebration with my beautiful family.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Deus Brânquia and back to Genabackis

Hope everyone is safe and healthy.

It has been a really slow week, at least for my reading, because I have been crazy busy.

So let me just jump into what have I been reading, and some of my numbers.

I have 26,871 of total pages for this year, that’s 3,129 to reach my next goal, and 14,794 pages to reach my ultimate goal for the year,  41,665 pages of total reading.

The other number I would like to point out is that I have finished 16 books in this year of reading, still have another 33 to reach my total of 49 books, which, is a recurrent goal for each and every year.

The last thing concerning my numbers is that I am 34 days ahead of my reading schedule, and if this pace holds out, this would be my best year of reading.

Now back to what I am reading.

Just finished the novelization of the academy award-winning movie, The Shape of Water, and I must say that I loved the movie and the book just takes it up a notch, the characters, especially the Amazonian Deity, are more rounded, and you can peak into their motivations and fears.

I highly recommend it.

Right now, I will start reading the fifth book of the Malazan Book of Fallen, Midnight Tides, it is a whopper of a book in a whopper of a series.

Midnight Tides

Also, I’ll start to read a comic book series of one of the newest additions to the Star Wars universe, Captain Phasma, in which, we follow her footsteps just as the menacing Star-Killer base is falling to pieces.

Stay safe.

Stay healthy.

For now, I am off to read.
