Weekend Read-A-Thon =)

My best friend Ina from 1000 Worte and I decided to do a Read-a-thon next weekend and everyone is most welcome to join in :) We will already start on Friday the 3rd after we are done with work and probably finish late on Sunday the 5th.

I don't remember when I last had a full weekend off and nothing planned! Can't wait to spend saturday & sunday reading, drinking tea, relaxing and of course blogging :)

I will write a post each day and plan to update it as often as I can. There are no special goals but of course you can make up some for yourself. I am not sure what to read yet. Maybe I will treat myself to a new book  =)

Top Ten Tuesday: Most anticipated releases for the rest of 2015


1. City of Mirrors. Passage Trilogy 3 by Justin Cronin (08.10.) 
--> Maybe? I find conflicting dates.. It might only get published some time next year. But I still have my hopes up for the end of 2015.

2. Fall of Light. Kharkanas Trilogy by Stephen Erikson (13.08.)
--> I wait for the whole trilogy to get published before I start reading. So that I don't forget half of it while I wait for the next part. Erikson's books tend to be very complicated and I think that's the best way for me. One step closer :)

3. The Fool's Quest. Fitz & Fool Trilogy 2 by Robin Hobb (11.08.)
--> Can't WAIT! I am so looking forward to reading this :)

4. The Invasion of the Tearling. Queen of the Tearling 2 by Erika Johansen (16.07.)
--> Because I really liked the first book in this series. There's so much left unanswered and so much room for the main character to develop.

5. Shadows of Self. Wax and Wayne 2 by Brandon Sanderson (08.10.)
--> This year has been a Sanderson-free year so far as I already read everything last year... Apart from Firefight but not sure if I will continue.. Shadows of Self is definitely very high on my wishlist!

6. The Mortal Tally. Bring down Heaven 2 by Sam Sykes (07.07.)
--> Conflicting release dates as well! I hope it's this year instead of next January....

7. The Thorn of Emberlain. Gentleman Bastard series 4 by Scott Lynch (17.09.)
--> Also here, I don't quite trust the publication date as it has been pushed back since 2013. Would love to have it though and see if it's better than the third installment.
