(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.

(Y-12) Epic Sagas, or, how I refuse to stop reading fantasy novels

The original plan for this year was to finish the leftover books from last year TBR pile, and then focusing on some new science fiction books

Well scratch than, I am going to continue the epicness for another year.

To start off, I’ll continue with The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, and continue with the other 4 books that comprise The Sundering Saga.

Then jump back into Genabackis, yo start the fifth volume of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, Midnight Tides.

And to top off the year, I’ll go into the fantastical world of Krynn, and the Dragonlance novels.

What a fantastical year I have before me.

Off to read.

(Y-11) new comic books and plans of the day

Today I started to do so work on my little desert oasis, hopefully it will be finished by late afternoon, right now it is close 100°F and it really hard to work.

So, I’ll stay for a while and try to finish Memories of Ice, I am really close to get it done.

Also, yesterday I went and pick up some new comic books, Batman and Green Lantern, maybe I’ll squeeze in one before heading outside.

I have 80 days to go on this, the eleventh year of reading, and with more than 17,000 pages to go on my goal, I will need my outside space to read.

Off to read.

(Y-11) a test run

I’m having one of my last long reading sessions, a sort of warm up for tomorrow’s grand event.

And of course I am chipping away at Memories of Ice, which I am aiming to finish it on Saturday afternoon.

As you can see above, I have about 9 hours left of reading, and I’ll try to push that down to close to 7 hours by the time I start my readathon.

For now,I’ll squeeze one last reading session before I succumb to Morpheus.

Off to read.

(Y-11) pounding away.

With two days to go for the start of the 24in48 readathon, I keep on reading and adding books to my TBR pile.

Right now I have downloaded 10 graphic novels on my Kindle Unlimited account, you can only have 10 at one time, and I will probably read them on Saturday afternoon.

Right now, I’ll keep on chipping away at Memories of Ice, currently on page 544 of 913, and hopefully I’ll get it done before the start of the readathon.

I have to say that this book has been amazing, and if you are planning to read The Malazan Book of the Fallen, keep in mind that the first two books are quite dense and help to establish the intricate world, but it’s all worth it.

In between all of this reading and planning, I took some time to go to the children’s museum of Ciudad Juárez, obviously with my two kids and my lovely wife.

The museum’s is one of our favourite places in town and as always we had and awesome time.

I’ll get back to my reading, some time I’ll devote to the book and in between some graphic novels time, I’ll read the rest of The Pathfinder Collections I have in my digital collection.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Last report of the day

Today was a Feng Shui kind of day around the house, so we did a little tidy up, which is never fun, but on the bright side, I have now some extra shelf space, so hurray for that.

I’ll keep on working on Memories of Ice, and hopefully I’ll get it done by early morning Friday, just in time for the 24in48 readathon.

Right now, as you can see, I’m closing in on 400 pages.

And that will be my goal for the day.

Off to read.

(Y-11 ) final reading session of the week

I enter this last reading session with a bit over 13 hours on the reading clock and two amazing days of progress.

I want to closeout not only the week but also the month of June, which has been historical for this blog, with a bang.to help me out to close this down, I’ll invoke the help of the third volume of the fantasy series Pathfinder, based on the Role-playing game.

And try to chip away a bit more of Memories of Ice, currently on page 122.

Also tomorrow I’ll made a numbers update.

Off to read.

(Y-11) last stretch of the night

As I enter the final hours of the day, there is still some 17 plus hours to go on my weekly reading clock.

I could chip away almost 3 hours, and hopefully I’ll slip another one before I succumb to sleep.

Right now I’m reading Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol and the third book of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Memories of Ice.

Lets see how much I can achieve.

Off to read.
