Weekend Reads | Their Fractured Light, I Hate the Internet, etc.

Hiya!

I currently have been in the midst of reading three separate books and there’s another one that I have added to my reading list this weekend for this weekend, so I’ve decided to challenge myself to finish all the ones that have been stuck on my Goodreads Currently Reading list for the past few weeks.

First, I want to finish Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I’ve been trying to finish this book since mid-March. I’ve enjoyed it for the most part, but I am annoyed by the turn it took before I set it down this week so I’m hoping it ends the series on a high note.

Next, I want to finish I Hate the Internet by Jarett Kobek. I was skeptical entering this book how much I would like it, because obviously I love the Internet. But the book’s turned out to be pretty funny and enlightening with all the history it provides. It’s also a really easy read because it has really short chapters and paragraphs that keep your attention, much like the Internet.

On my lowest level of priority is Identity is the New Money by David Birch. I started this book weeks ago for one of my undergraduate classes and I just never managed to finish it. It’s pretty short and I’m actually a good deal through it at this point. Also, it’s on my iPhone so I can read it anywhere. The main reason I would like to finish it this weekend is to just make up for all the books I’ve started this semester and didn’t manage to finish and, therefore, set down indefinitely.

The final book I need to get to this weekend is the one we will talk about in class next Tuesday: My Life as a Night Elf Priest: An Anthropological Account of World of Warcraft by Bonnie Nardi. I’ve not properly started it yet so I have no idea how much I’m going to like it yet. Also, I’ve not ever played War of Warcraft, so I don’t have much motivation to read this book beyond the fact that it’s required for class. But it’s one I intend to finish nevertheless, even if I don’t finish it in its entirety by class time…

End Note

I’m really excited to get some good reading done this week. Before I go I did want to apologize for not posting in a little while! Not a day has gone by that I’ve not had a weird post idea that I’ve debated making a reality. I do have some new posts in the pipeline that should be going up next week if everything goes according to plan, including a book talk and a reading tag. Not to forget the wrap up for this weekend TBR!

What are you reading this weekend?

Do you have books that have been sitting on your TBR far too long?

April ’17 TBR // Agenda

I’ve been in somewhat of a reading slump regarding recreational reading. This semester has been my busiest of grad school yet and it’s shown in my progress on my Goodreads Reading Challenge. I’m determined to turned things around in April, starting with a TBR.

There are four books I need to read in April for my own classes and the classes I assist with, and for the most part I’m excited about all of them! I want to end the semester strong by completing all of these books so I can fully enjoy the class discussion about them. I also have some other things on my agenda for this month…

I Hate the Internet: A Useful Novel Against Men, Money, and the Filth of Instagram by Jarett Kobek

My Life as a Night Elf Priest: And Anthropological Account of World of Warcraft by Bonnie A. Nardi

Against the Romance of Community by Miranda Joseph

Agenda

Final Papers. I have three final papers to complete this month because they are due at the beginning of May. All of them involve the YA book blogging community in some way, so you may find me talking about some of them on my blog this month *hint hint* *wink wink* ^_^

Camp NaNoWriMo. If you saw my last post this week, you’ll know I’m planning on participating in Camp NaNoWriMo! I’m writing 20K words of my new novel, so I’m excited squeeze in some on the weekends.

Duolingo. At the beginning of March I started using Duolingo to learn German. I took four years of French in high school and Spanish may have been more practical since I live in the U.S., but I’ve found myself encountering more German writers and thinkers in the past year than I have in the past so I want to have at least a cursory understanding of German. I stopped using it after spring break, so my goal for April is to start using it again more regularly. It only requires like 20 minutes per day and I can do it very easily from bed when I’m browsing Instagram so hopefully this isn’t too hard to accomplish!
