Yay!

I'll go ahead and open a thread for it. :D
Do you want to start the Space Opera next?
This one could take me a few more days, so I'll let you pick when to start it. :tiphat:

No rush. Let me know when you are ready to start it. I can read another one until then. :)

Sorry, if I got a little ahead of myself. But I don't have it yet, and I would need a little more time to acquire it.

Were you not about to begin another book with someone else (Space Opera)? I apologize if i misread one of your posts.

No worries. I have plenty to read. :)

Yes, I am supposed to start Space Opera with Gravy when she finishes her current book. It will take her a few days.

Tell me when you get the book, and we can read it then (if I am not in the middle of another book). There is no rush, so take your time. :)

Great. I don't know about you but sometimes I fall in between books. Like, one book that I'm reading is moving kind of slowly for me, so I take a little break from it and begin a different book.

Luckily, I don't have any problem with keeping the two stories separated. *So, happy reading, and I will let you know when I'm ready.

Thank you and no rush. :)

I finished Come Tumbling Down.

I'm ready for Space Opera whenever. I'm actually going to go ahead and start it so hopefully, given my slump, I'll be able to keep up a bit better. :tiphat:

I've actually got a handful of books I'm interested in reading soon. Just wondering if there's any interest in any of them.

Circe by Madeline Miller
In the Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund
A Dream So Dark by L.L. McKinney (this is actually the second in a series)
Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky
The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

Also, @gali, there's going to be a sequel to The Twisted Ones. Sounds like it's going to be about a completely different character.
Just in case you're interested. :tiphat:

@Gravy A sequel to The Twisted Ones? What is the title? Yes, I am interested.

Circe by Madeline Miller, Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky, and The Library of the Unwritten are on my list.

A Dream So Dark by L.L. McKinney and the first book are on my list as well, but I didn't read the first book yet.

I am game for all of the above. :)

Anyone interested in reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow?

Awesome. 8)

Unfortunately, I'm not a good choice for anything I don't have near immediate access to. (Circe was supposed to be a read-a-long for me in December; I only just got access to a copy. :lol: )

A pity you don't read ebooks. Since I have got my kindle, I can easily access most books.

You probably have time to read it, if you'd rather. My reading speed is down to a crawl.


(You could probably read 2 books and still catch up and pass me. :laughing-rolling: I've seriously only read 3 books this year. The slump is real.)

Whatever you want. :)

It will take me a few days to finish "The Ten Thousand Doors of January', as I just started it.

Tell me when you start Space Opera and I will try to catch up.

I am just throwing it out there, but I'm interested in reading Circe by Madeline Miller when you get to it. Absolutely no rush, though! I'm working through a couple of books now, so this could be in a "near future" read-a-long. Maybe in a month of two. :)
