Halloween Bingo 2022 Update #2

I was so sure I'd have one more book completed by this next update, but alas, it was not to be.  Ah well...  I'm halfway through two books and about 30% into the third.  The Ice Princess started off quite interesting, but is proving to be a bit banal towards the middle, so I took my mind off of it for a while.

In the meantime, I had the sudden urge to throw an audiobook in there, and found that I owned Sourcery by Terry Pratchett as an Audible.  I've been listening to it for the past four days, but during my last two drives to and from work, I found myself drifting to a lot of work related matters that are currently occupying my thoughts, so ended up not paying attention, much to my own regret.  It's not that book isn't good--I found myself laughing out loud many times--it's just that work stuff has been a bit stressful lately, and I find myself unable to turn off my brain for even those thirty minute drives to and from work.

No worries, I'm going to back track about two hours to catch up on what I missed.  Though I must admit that the parts without Rincewind aren't as much fun, for some reason.

I'm still waiting patiently for my library to tell me that my interlibrary loan hold is ready for The Honjin Murders.  With my luck, though, it'll finally be ready by the end of October... too late to read for Halloween Bingo.  So crossing my fingers that I'll see the library hold available soon.

Otherwise, after I'm done with Sourcery and The Ice Princess, I'm going for either Seanan McGuire or maybe Mary Stewart...  At least that's what I'm feeling.  I'm also kind of wanting to re-listen to the full cast audio version of Dracula again, just for old times' sake--I loved that audiobook so much when I first listened to it!
