Hello Nerds

It’s that time again. Let’s talk about what we are reading this week.

First, I am still listening to The Elite by Kiera Cass

16248068

Let me tell you…it is taking all of my will power not to sit down and listen to the rest of this book. I know how it ends! I do. But getting to the ending is such a whirlwind of emotions. It might even be contributing to my anxiety lately.

On my kindle I am still reading Desert Hunt by Anna Lowe

25637095

This book is kind of an erotica novel. And honestly, what I have read of it is poorly written. I am not enjoying this book at all. I know I have to finish it to give it a proper review, but I am almost to the point of stopping it and shelving it for later. I know if I stop now though, I will never come back to it.

This week I started reading The Drafter by Kim Harrison

23492477

This book came out the first of September and I had it in my hands at that point as well. But I was in the middle of reading Small Favor by Jim Butcher and I was trying to get that out of the way. Then, I got some bad news. This book isn’t doing so well in sales. Kim Harrison just announced today that at this moment, the second book has been put on hold. I am dying! What if I actually like this book in the end?! Which I am sure I will.

I have liked it so far, but I am not even a hundred pages in yet. But it is so sad to see one of my favorite authors struggling with a new series. She wrote a series called the Hollows and it was amazing. My heart broke when it ended, but the ending was so fantastic. I was so excited for a new series, but it looks like not everyone was ready for it.

*sadness*

So, if you are looking for a good book to pick up, try The Drafter by Kim Harrison. Let’s help this author get back up on her feet.

Happy Monday Nerds!

Have you heard the news about what is going on in SC? We are flooding. Yep, that’s where I live. Lucky for me I live in a tab bit safer place than others and the rain has not washed me away. Though, it did try to wash away my roof. Oy.

I have finally got back on my reading streak. Yes, I read three books last week alone. THREE BOOKS! They were part of a series and I got the first one free from Book Bub. The books were called Blood and Snow by Rashelle Workman. Not going to lie, I started reading them for two reasons. 1. The cover is really pretty! 2. Who doesn’t love a fairy tale retelling? While I am not still reading it, I wanted to share it with you. If you click the picture below you can get it free on Amazon as well. The first book anyways. If you read it, let me know what you think. **I was not asked by the author to advertise this book, I just really really liked it**

Now, on to what I AM reading at the moment. I have worked it down to three books and two of them are new this week.

I am still working on Small Favor by Jim Butcher. I don’t know why this book is dragging me down so bad. I have loved all the Dresden File novels but this one…I just can’t get into it I guess. I’m still going to read it, but I’m going at it slowly.

I started reading Desert Hunt by Anna Lowe. I was supposed to feature Anna Lowe as my author of the month last month. But…I had a hard month and I am still trying to get my bearings. Hopefully I can finish this book this week and beg Anna to still let me have an interview with her. So far though, the book is intriguing.

I also started reading the second book of the Selecting called The Elite, by Kiera Cass. I know I said I didn’t like the first one, but I got hooked about half way through it. So for this month I am listening to this book on audible.

You got to admit, that cover is gorgeous! And can I please fight for the love an attention of a prince?

There you go, what I am reading this week. Honestly, I hope to finish Desert Hunt and Small Favor this week so I can move on to a few books that have been sitting on my bedside table. I also have a stack on my floor and three shelves of a bookshelf… Oh dear, I have too many books.

Oh! One more thing before you go. I started a book club on Facebook (I might be moving it over to goodreads). We are only in the first stages of deciding what book to read for next month. If anyone is interested in joining, let me know. Hopefully, I can get a big group of readers and have an awesome online book club.

So, what are you reading?

Hello Nerds,

So…I still have not picked up my reading speed. I realize that I have a ton of books to read, but I seem to be in a reading slump. I am falling behind in my reading challenge. I am only 8 books ahead of schedule now.

Moving on…

I am still reading Small Favor by Jim Butcher

The Secret Hour by Scott Westerfeld

9842956

and Sortilege by C.M. Cox
Honestly, this one has lost my interest so I need to hurry through it so I can get a review of it done and move on.

A new one that I am reading is The Selection Kiera Cass
I am listening to this one and I am not so sure I will continue the series when I finish it. The covers are beautiful, but the story…It just feels so…Hunger Games with out the killing. You take a bunch of lower class girls, dress them up, and parade them around the Prince so that one girl can be his bride. I also realized that it takes three books to get to the final girl…It just seems like this story can be told in one book, but I will read through the rest of it before I judge it too harshly.
