Kingdom of Ash | Weekend Reads

Happy Friday! I’m back again this Friday with my weekend reading plans. It’s taken me all month, but I finally finished An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. It started off a little rocky for me, but I was blown away by the ending and now can’t stop thinking about it. It even made me tear up a little. (I’m hoping to write a proper review soon!)

Last Wednesday I had my endoscopic surgery on my nose. Everything went fine, but it was miserable constantly needing to clean my nose and change my gauze. I’m not sure I would ever go through this surgery again if I needed it. Hopefully I’ll never have to deal with a broken nose!

I thought I’d be able to get a lot done, but my recovery was mostly spent sleeping whenever I could and doing stuff that I could do with my head up. So I watched a lot of T.V.! I did have days where I managed a bit of reading, but it was hard to do consistently when I wasn’t even eating or sleeping consistently.

koaRight now I feel like reading ALL THE THINGS, so it was a little hard to decide what my next read would, especially since I’m reading like one book per month at the moment. Then I started seeing Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas, the long-awaited finale to the epic Throne of Glass series, pop up in my social media feeds and realized that it’d be the perfect thing to read right now.

I’ve always bought the books in the Throne of Glass series in their digital form via Amazon Kindle (the first books were amazing $2/$3 deals). Right now, I figured an eBook might find it easier for me to read from my phone/iPad than a physical book that I would need to hold up and possibly drop on my face. I’ve dropped my phone on my face in the past as well. Nevertheless, it’s lighter than a book!

 ☙ ❧ END NOTE ❧ ☙

Now that I’m starting to feel better, I’m hoping I’ll be able to end the month strong. I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog where I want to take it. I love switching things up and following my whims when it comes to this blog. Hopefully there will always be something for everyone, especially the people who originally followed.

As much as I hate to admit it, I feel like I got caught up in the blog growth game again and need to hit the restart button. I need to feel the freedom of being able to blog whenever I feel like it and not just because people are expecting something specific from me. I’ll elaborate on this some more soon.

What are you reading this weekend?

Thank you for reading!

    It’s nice to know that things went well with your surgery :) I’ve been out of the loop with all things book blogging as I’ve been taking a break myself.
    I’d love to read what you think of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. I’ve been hesitant to pick that book up because of the hype.
    Have a great week, Lori!

      Thank, Czai! I hope you’ve been doing well! I’ll definitely be writing a review on AART. I’m still thinking about that story and just don’t know yet how to articulate my feelings about it without feeling like I’m preaching to the choir. I worry it may be in danger of being overhyped, and I don’t want to add any flame to that fire. ^_^
