On the subject of forgetting. I had completely forgotten that the buddy read for The Moontide Quartet started in September!!!

Narilka | 3364 comments I'm officially signing up for 6 books this month. That's a lot for me.

09/03 The Skull Throne Peter Brett
09/08 Thief of Time Terry Pratchett
09/09 Bloody Rose Nicholas Eams
09/10 Shadow and Bone Leigh Bardugo
09/12 Dreams of Gods & Monsters Laini Taylor
09/18 Clean Sweep Ilona Andrews

There's no way I'll be able to keep that schedule so I'm going to mix up the order and start the month with Bloody Rose :)

My Buddy Read list is dwindling... like a lot of people, my breakneck buddy read schedule has burned me out a bit:

9/4 -- Magic Triumphs (started early)
9/6 -- Civil Campaign
9/8 -- Kneel or Die
9/10 -- Alcatraz vs the Scrivener's Bones
9/10 -- Shadow & Bone ???
9/15 -- What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
9/18 -- Clean Sweep
9/20 -- Academ's Fury
9/20 -- Winterfair Gifts ???

Flexible/Weekly Reads and Bookburners episodes...
Add the Camp Halfblood series?


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3909 comments 9/1 The Crown Tower
9/1 The Wise Man's Fear
*9/4 Magic Triumphs (if I can catch up)
9/9 Bloody Rose
9/10 Shadow and Bone
9/10 Cibola Burn
9/15 What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
9/18 Clean Sweep
9/24 Wuthering Heights

Plus the rest of the Kate Daniel books

I might be starting a new job so might need to cut this list down. I'm starting to get burnt out as well.
