Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare
Queen of Air and Darkness, the third and final book in the Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare, came out on December 6th, 2018. Because of finals, I decided to wait to read it until after I had finished all of my work (I really wanted to be able to enjoy it). So, I downloaded the book onto my kindle for my flight and started reading as soon as I could. I can't remember being this excited for a book (maybe since City of Heavenly Fire in Cassandra Clare's other Shadowhunter series). According to my kindle, I'm 49% through Queen of Air and Darkness, and I can't wait to keep reading. Because it's the end of the series, I'm equal parts relieved and afraid for what is going to happen; I know there won't be any cliffhangers, but that almost makes the anticipation worse. After all, the tagline for the book release was "Everything Changes."

Richard Nixon: The Life by John A. Farrell
I recently picked this book up at The Booksmith on Haight. One of my favorite movies is All the President's Men, and one of my favorite shows to watch is CNN's the Seventies (especially the Watergate episode). I've always been fascinated by Presidents, which shows in my West Wing obsession, and Richard Nixon is one of the most interesting. I've decided to read two books at the same time this Christmas break; I'm normally not a huge fan of this, but I think reading one fiction book and one non-fiction won't confuse me too much.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I've heard a lot of good things about this one (mainly through booktube, my main procrastination technique from this finals week), so I'm really looking forward to getting into it. According to one website, it was the winner of the Tonight Show Summer Reads with Jimmy Fallon. Now, I know there are mixed opinions out there about Jimmy Fallon, but I, for one, love him, so any book he likes, I feel like I could get into.
Recently, I've been getting into re-reading books, which is something that I never used to do. This summer I re-read the entire Mortal Instruments series, and I'm currently re-reading the Dark Artifices series (while also reading Queen of Air and Darkness). So, in this spirit of re-reading, I plan on re-readingHarry Potter. My favorite podcast network, The Ringer, has a podcast dedicated to Harry Potter, which I'm excited to listen to. I also would like to finally finish the Infernal Devices series. I've been listening to the audiobooks, which I enjoy, but it definitely takes longer.
