In last week’s post, I mentioned that I was going to be taking a week-long break from focusing on the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge to read purely for my own pleasure.
I had initially planned for this to be a light reading week, thinking that I would finish a small number of titles. But as it turned out, the opposite happened. During the course of the week, I read a total of eight books, which brings me to a total of twenty-one books read since January 1st.
Many of my reading choices this week were comic book collections or quick-read works of nonfiction (like Very British Problems), but I also had the opportunity to read a few titles that I’ve been meaning to get around to for months. (There was also a fair amount of Avengers fanfiction reading that happened as well.) The books I read this week include:
- Very British Problems: Making Life Awkward For Ourselves One Rainy Day At A Time (Rob Temple)
- More Very British Problems: Life Just Got Awkward(er) (Rob Temple)
- Very British Problems: Still Awkward, Still Raining (Rob Temple)
- Very British Problems: The Most Awkward One Yet (Rob Temple)
- Escape! (Iain Rob Wright)
- Bloodshot: Definitive Edition (Duane Swierczynski, et al.)
- Through the Woods (Emily Carroll)
- At Wits’ End (Kirsten Weiss)
Next week, I will be turning my focus back to the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge. I do have one library book that I need to finish (Seanan McGuire’s Laughter at the Academy, which will fulfill the “a book by an author who has written more than 20 books” prompt), but I’m having some trouble deciding which reading prompt to tackle when I’m done. I’m currently thinking that it will be one of three possibilities: “a book with a robot, cyborg, or AI character,” “an anthology,” or “a book with only words on the cover, no images or graphics.”
Which reading prompt do you think I should complete next? You can vote for your favorite prompt by responding to my poll on Twitter @UnapologBkworm. The poll will be open from February 1st, through February 2nd. As soon as the poll closes, I will announce the winner (and my chosen book for that prompt) on Twitter.
