I took a gloomy #audiowalk between rainstorms. The sky fit the book pretty durned well.

Between a walk to the store and the time I spent cleaning this dude‘s hair off of everything, I hit chapter 40/92. I‘m at the point where basically, everything‘s terrible for everyone and I‘m DEEPLY DISTRESSED. #audiocleaning

emtobiasz Looks like Casey‘s deeply distressed too! 😟 1d

My Dark Age Hangover Recovery Box from FaeCrate finally arrived. It is everything I hoped for and more. I had plans for the weekend, but once my Reaper Cosplay Snuggie is washed, those plans are cancelled. I will be reading under my Snuggie while crying into my plushie Sevro. 😍 Hail Reaper! #OmnisVirLupus

I made zoodles for supper. My neighbour gave me two enormous zucchini and approximately 75 grape tomatoes; can‘t let ‘em go to waste.

I‘m now 31/92 chapters into DARK AGE, and it feels very much like an epic fantasy despite its science fictional bones. Brown utilizes his various POVs a little differently here than he did in IRON GOLD, and the whole thing‘s giving me a Wheel of Time vibe. (Solid WoT, not messy WoT.) I approve. #audiocooking

Finally, I have time to properly dig into this. I haven't been able to give it the proper attention it deserves as I had friends visiting and then after that my family was visiting.

This was an #audiobaking day. I now have a whole bunch of chard chips and the sponges for a Limey Bastard (a zucchini cake filled with lime curd and topped with cream cheese frosting).

I sure wish RBdigital‘s interface would tell me how much of DARK AGE I‘ve listened to already. All I know is I‘m at chapter 14 of 92, which isn‘t much help if I want to gauge my progress. Which I do.

Sock progress: heel turn edition. This pattern uses a new-to-me method and I‘m in love with it! No stitches to pick up along the edge of the gusset! No holes! Hurray!

I‘m gonna be doing a ton of #audioknitting over the next little bit, because RBdigital finally coughed up a copy of DARK AGE—and at 34 hours, it‘s the longest audiobook I‘ve ever tackled. I listen at 2x so it ain‘t quite as bad as it looks, but it‘s still a major commitment.

Ok folks. I'm down to the last 100 pages of this book that I feel like I've been reading forever. It's taking longer to read because of the number of characters, the amount of action, it's pretty dang grim, and well, it's over 700 pages long! But it's well worth the read - the whole series is.

Finally got my videos up this week. Had to film them multiple times because my camera kept not being in focus. But I got all of them up, including my way-too-long Dark Age review.

Still a bit new to Litsy. I keep seeing things about Bookmark Swapping. Was wondering what it was and how one gets into it? If it‘s something through Litsy or from something else.

TheSpineView The bookmark swap just ended today. There seems to be swaps going on all the time. Check #litsyhappenings to see what is going on. 1w
Gaylagal2 When looking for swaps, they are not always listed under #litsyhappenings. But sometimes you just have to scroll through posts and maybe look for litters that participate in them. That's what I did in the beginning and it really helped 🤓 Good luck! 2d

Warning—once you start this book, you won‘t be able to put it down. Reading when you have a large window of time (yay summer vacation) highly recommended. If you‘re like me, you‘ll sit down to read this book with your stomach in knots—knots that will only get tighter & tighter as you read. This is definitely a middle book—albeit a very good, very violent, very entertaining one. All the pieces are in place & I can‘t wait to see what happens next.

GrilledCheeseSamurai I bought it day 1...read the prologue (and friggen loved it) and haven't yet dipped into it for realz yet. Things have been crazy busy for me so I'm saving it until (hopefully) next week! 2w

There‘s no getting around the fact that this one‘s going to hurt, right? After all, as my daughter pointed out when I tried explaining to her why I hadn‘t already started it, Golden Son is my favorite & it‘s not for the faint of heart...This one can‘t be any worse, can it?!? 🤞I know it‘s going to be fabulous but I‘m also expecting to have ALL the feels. Enough procrastinating. Time to rip the band-aid off and dive into my next book.

DGRachel I sobbed through the first three chapters on Kindle and had to step away. I‘ll get back to it when my FaeCrate shows up with my Sevro plushie to cuddle and my print copy of the book. Golden Son is my favorite, too, and I fully expect Dark Age to be worse.😭 2w
MicrobeMom I feel the same way! I have been putting it off. Iron Gold made me sad. I was hoping for better for Darrow and Mustang. I will get there. Just not ready yet! 2w
TracyReadsBooks @DGRachel This is exactly what I‘m worried about! 😭😭😭 More importantly, how in the world did I miss the existence of a Sevro plushie?!? So cool! 2w
TracyReadsBooks @MicrobeMom Yes! Iron Gold also left me expecting things have to get worse before there is any chance of them getting better. And I anticipate the wait for the next one will be looooooooooong. I mean, maybe I‘m wrong—😂😂😂Yeah, right. Who am I kidding? It‘s Pierce Brown, this one isn‘t going to be easy (but I bet it will be very good). 2w

This book was so good. I wish I would have remembered to reread the previous 4 books in the series first, but despite that oversight I still loved this book. Can‘t wait for my red rising reread.

Love being away for 2 months and coming home to some of my most anticipated book mail of the year. If you‘re a fan of Brown‘s Red Rising series—and I am—it‘s impossible, I think, not to view this book with equal parts dread and excitement... Of course I WANT to read it but I know it won‘t be easy because everything leading to this one says THINGS HAVE TO HAPPEN and they won‘t all be good. That‘s the joy, right? Can‘t wait to get started.

I‘m so excited Pierce Brown stopped by a local book store on his Dark Age tour; not only so I could meet him, but so that my husband could meet him as he‘s his favorite author. My husband‘s never been a reader, so I was giving him audiobooks to try and he devoured Red Rising and the rest of the trilogy. Brown is such a nice person and seriously brilliant! (M & T for Meredith & Tyler 😊)

This is my proposed #AugustTBR-a mix of LMPBC, NetGalley, library books, and the book I've had preordered since December 2017 and which is probably my most anticipated/dreaded book of this year. I'm expecting lots of tears from Pierce Brown, and probably a great deal of swearing, screaming, and maybe even tossing of Kindles or iPads across the room. There's a few more books I'd like to squeeze in, but if I can finish all of these, I'll be happy.

The Dark Age Hangover Box from Fae Crate is supposed to ship within 2 weeks of the book's release. I cannot wait 2 weeks because people are...well, you know, and I am sure to hit spoilers on other social media. I preordered the Kindle version back in December of 2017, so it's here. I have one book I have to finish first, before I can start this one, and I almost don't want to finish it. I'm terrified. This is going to hurt so much. 😭

And what's a few extra months anyways.

1. The return of late winter in mid-May. The high was only 48 degrees today and that‘s WAY too cold!

4. Diavola pizza, salad & a glass of Malbec
5. Anyone & everyone!

DGRachel I am both looking forward to and dreading Dark Age. It makes me ill just thinking about it. 1y
TracyReadsBooks @DGRachel Agreed. As usual, Pierce Brown left us teetering on the end of sheer awesomeness or utter devastation. Impossible to know which, because honestly, he probably has a third option to pull out of his back pocket, and that makes waiting REALLY HARD and the thought of cracking open the book a little nerve-wracking. 1y

You all have seen this cover, right? So cool and no, I would have never guessed snakes! A bit of a departure from the other covers in the series but no complaints here. Right now the release date is still listed as September 11th. We can hope, right? 🤞
