I think I (thankfully) may have hit the conclusion of my reading slump. I’m crossing my fingers, but also not holding my breath. Not reassuring, but honest 🙂 I have been working my way through a couple PC games that have been in my Steam library for awhile, and am having a lot of fun with those. My husband and I have also restarted the Game of Thrones series in preparation for the April release of the series finale. So, I haven’t really been leaving myself much free time to read as well, although I’m hopeful my personal TBR takedown will speed back up!
Here are the books I’m planning to dive right into this weekend, and finish up in the coming week. Let me know if you have read any of these, or if they are on your TBR. I’d love to hear your thoughts on books! Goodreads links will be included for each book. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
The Birth House by Ami McKay
From what I’ve read so far (about 30%), this book is exactly what I look for in terms of historical fiction. Sure, there may be particular time periods that I’m more drawn to than others, but the simple practices of old world medicine is always something that fascinates me. I always joke with my husband that if we had been born 200 years ago, I’d be the old woman that lives in the forest and sells herbal concoctions to the townsfolk, hopefully avoiding the wrath of the witch-crazed population. This is a bit more modern than THAT time period, and follows the social structure of the people caught underneath the weight of new modern medicine clashing with traditional methods of healing and child birth.
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
I have just recently had this series brought to my attention, and by those whose opinions of fantasy reads I very much respect. I am buddy reading this book and because of its length, plan to get started as soon as possible. I’ve really only heard great commentary about this series, so I am so looking forward to delving into this world that has people swooning.
