#AYearAThon Update

Last week I showed you my TBR for this week’s #AYearAThon, with the theme of Re-reads. Let’s have a look at how I am doing.

Finished books

Shades of Milk and Honey On Monday I started and finished Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal. I’ve reviewed this book on the blog when I first read it. I found this Regency-with-magic fantasy book to be quite like I remembered: fun, a quick read, with some predictability if you’ve read your Austen. I think I liked it a bit better the second time around, since I knew what to expect.

Monday: 302 pages

Currently reading

The Three Musketeers On Tuesday I moved onto my second reread, The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. D’Artagnan is such a hothead! Although I enjoy the book, I haven’t been reading that much, so I am only 90 pages in…

Tuesday: 27 pages
Wednesday: 63 pages

I found it a fun coincidence that The Three Musketeers starts with the words “On the first Monday of the month of April”, and that’s when the read-a-thon started. Just my little dorky source of fun!

I am still reading this grimdark high fantasy. I’m about halfway through – so far I haven’t gotten very immersed into the story, but I do intend to finish the book.

Last week I stumbled upon this read-a-thon called AYearAThon. Some people came up with a year’s worth of montly read-a-thons for 2014. So, once a month, there is a week-long read-a-thon with a set theme. You don’t have to take part in all of them if you don’t want to – you can just do the month/months of your choosing. You can find more info about the YearAThon here, and join the GoodReads group here.

April’s theme is Re-Reads, and it takes place next week, from April 7th to 13th. I found the theme interesting, since there are a couple of books that I’ve meant to re-read for a while. I think I will also take part at least in May’s Finish/Catch Up On A Series and July’s Classics read-a-thons.

I need to re-read Shades of Milk and Honey so that I can continue with the Glamourist Histories series, and I’ve wanted to re-read The Three Musketeers (and all its sequels) for a while now. I thought this might be a great time for that! I hope to finish both of these next week, but since The Three Musketeers is over 800 pages long, it might be wishful thinking. Let’s see how I’ll do!
