“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, [her] brain dried up and [she] went completely out of [her] mind.”
― Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote
a physical TBR? who is she ✨
.
i instilled a rule a couple of years ago that i don’t buy physical copies of books unless i’ve already read them (and actually enjoyed them), which has saved me a lot of money and hard to come by real estate on my shelves.

with the only exceptions to this rule being pre-orders of ongoing series and a handful of insta-buy authors, i never really have much of a physical TBR stack (outside of books i bought a decade ago 🙃) so i thought i’d register the fact that i actually have one going right now.

outside of the MXTX novels, which i’m very excited to tackle next year, i’m hoping to read all of these before the year is out 🤞🏻 wish me luck

QOTD: what book are you determined to read by the end of 2021?

November is usually when I start panicking about picking my last books of the year 🙀 what are some of your 2021 TBR priorities?

1 year to the day since I took my first tentative steps into the Cosmere ✨ after 4 months, 12 novels, 9 assorted short stories and novellas & 3 graphic novels I was sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this would be the greatest Epic Fantasy series I would ever read in my lifetime - even if it is still ongoing. Having had even more time since to sit with these stories, I’m only more sure of that fact. 
.
The Foreword by Dan Wells and the Postscript included in the 10th anniversary edition of Elantris absolutely fascinate me - I love hearing about where authors get their inspiration and their journey.
.
I’m getting to that stage where I can no longer put off rereading this series. The more I think about it the more I keep making connections I wasn’t able to the first time around and that’s what has always captivated me in Epic Fantasy, that grander feeling of connectedness and wonder.
.
Have you read any of the works that make up the Cosmere?

🔥Flash Fire by T J Klune
Happy release to this absolute gem!
The first book in this series was jam packed with laughs & surprises and the sequel certainly did not disappoint.
Nicky has found a special place in my heart forever, and I can’t put into words the joy it brings me to read a story about a queer neurodiverse kid becoming his own kind of hero.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
Thank you to @netgalley @torteen & @tjklunebooks for the opportunity to read and review this firecracker.

It’s been a pretty atypical week Chez ReadIt, as I’ve been struck down with an ear infection from hell. I’ve been trying to make the most of it, enjoying time home with the pups and hanging out with some of my favorite characters.
.
Joe & Ox from #Wolfsong were the last if the custom Funko Pops I commissioned, and I have to confess I’m looking forward to ordering the entire (goddamn) Bennett pack - including Jessie and her shotgun 😂 
.
QOTD: if you were to get a custom Funko Pop, what character(s) would you get?
