April 2017 Reading Progress

April 2017 Books
I had a relatively good month this time for reading more books from even more series, most of them very good ones. Unfortunately the Wheel of Time prequel was fairly disappointing and given that I haven't yet started book 12 hopefully I won't completely loose track of that particular series, but at least rereading the Lightbringer series I'll finally be able to get around to reading the newest fourth book!

  • New Spring (Wheel of Time #0) - Robert Jordan
  • Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) - Sarah J. Maas
  • Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere #1) - Melina Marchetta
  • The Black Prism (Lightbringer #1) - Brent Weeks [Reread]

Currently Reading:
The Blinding Knife (Lightbringer #2) - Brent Weeks [Reread]

March 2017 Reading Progress

March 2017 Books
I just managed to squeeze in the end of Wheel of Time #11 just before the end of the month! I kept getting distracted by all these many other books which were mostly really great, but I did it anyway! And it was worth it, book 11 has been one of the strongest so far, with the most big events/reveals/anything actually happening since about book 4 or 5?

  • Obernewtyn (Obernewtyn #1) - Isobelle Carmody
  • Pendulum - Adam Hamdy
  • Astro Boy Omnibus Vol. 1 - Osamu Tezuka
  • Elantris - Brandon Sanderson
  • The Farseekers (Obernewtyn #2) - Isobelle Carmody
  • Knife of Dreams (The Wheel of Time #11) - Robert Jordan

Currently Reading:
Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) - Sarah J. Maas

February 2017 Reading Progress

February 2017 books
The Starbound series is absolutely incredible -3 separate stories which aren't actually so separate as it turns out (do read them in order), with Sci-Fi, Romance, Action, Comedy and pretty much anything else you could want in a good YA series! I only wish there had been more books in it.

  • These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) - Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner 
  • Crossroads of Twilight (The Wheel of Time #10) - Robert Jordan

  • This Shattered World (Starbound #2) - Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
  • Their Fractured Light (Starbound #3) - Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
  • This Night So Dark (Starbound #1.5) - Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

Hope everyone's new year is off to a great start!
Mine is (clearly) off to a slow start in terms of reading at least, I only just finished my first collection of Lovecraft stories on the 30th. If I had to choose, my favourite stories of those would have been Herbert West: Reanimator, The Colour Out of Space and The Whisperer in the Darkness.

  • Winter's Heart (The Wheel of Time #9) - Robert Jordan
  • The Call of Cthulhu and other Weird Stories - H.P. Lovecraft

Currently Reading:
