Hello Friends! I’m getting ideas and making plans and goals and I am going to get back on track with this blogging thing. Why? Because I love it! Even if I don’t have a lot of followers, I love connecting with a few of the readers I have connected with. I might start sharing a little something other than reading and writing. Maybe a monthly post on what I am doing outside of the reading and writing world?

Enough of with the chit chat. Let’s get to the reading thing.

What am I reading this week?

Replica by Lauren Oliver
28448287

I am reading one chapter of Gemma’s story and then reading one chapter of Lyra’s story. I knew that if I read one story all the way through, I wouldn’t read the other side of the story. I would be bored with it and move on. But this has been a fun story to read because of how I am reading it. It’s interesting to have two sides of the story, but I find myself wondering about the other characters in the book and what their side of it is. I need all the POV’s!

 

And that is all…

Yeah, I am focusing on this book because it is a library book and I want to hurry and get it back to the library before my time runs out. Though I am wishing I had bought this book. The concept is so interesting with it being two books in one. I am glad that it was printed that way because I am a little bored with authors who publish a book and then say “Oh, buy this book too! It’s the same story but from someone else POV.”

Also, I have found that I really love Lauren Oliver! I just finished reading Delirium by her as well. She is such a creative writer. I can’t wait to read more by her.

Hello Friends. It’s Monday again. No matter how many times it happens I always find myself shocked that it’s Monday again. But it’s okay. I have things to look forward to this week. Maybe I will fill you in later. 🙂

At the end of last week I started a new audio book. I am not really liking it too much, but I used my one monthly credit on it, so I am stuck with it until the end…or until next month.

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

I actually found this book through a quiz on Epic Reads. It was some silly quiz that said they could guess my favorite book genre by me clicking a few pictures. They guessed high fantasy…which I have never had much luck with high fantasy, I always get a little bored. They recommended this series and I thought I would give it a try.

So far it has put me in the mind of The Shannara Chronicles on MTV. Yes, the show because I have yet to read those books. But so far it just has not peaked my interest. I will give it to the end of the book and see if I will continue the series. If you have any suggestions for audio books, feel free to leave me a recommendation.

I am currently reading 3 books.

The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

I feel bad that I haven’t read more of this. I think I have hit a bit of a reading slump and nothing is grabbing my attention.

I am still loving this book, but I am reading it on my Kindle so I try not to read it at night because of the whole “no electronics before bed” thing. I may have to ignore that rule for now.

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I just started reading this Saturday night and so far it is interesting. I am giving it until about page 100 for it to grab my attention. This book has been so hyped that I am trying not to get my hopes up too much.

That is all I have at the moment. I am hoping to get at least one of these books finished this week so I can move on to the books I am reading for reviews for another blog. In reality, I should be reading those first, but I was never one to follow the rules.

Tell me, what are you reading?

Hello friends! Happy Monday. Ugh, again. But, Monday also means sharing what we are currently reading! Now, my plan last week was to finish two books…I didn’t make it. I even had the weekend off and didn’t read nearly as much as I had planned. I haven’t even watched a lot of TV. The internet pulled me in and held me hostage.

Anyways, that means I am still re-reading a book.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I am really close to finishing this though. Anyone shocked that I am only reading one book at the moment? I certainly am.

So far, I love this book as much this time as I did the first time I read it. It’s almost like reading it for the first time, except now I can see all the hidden hints to a few twist with in the chapters. I almost squealed with excitement when I set it down yesterday to eat dinner. Yes, it is that good. To me at least. I know the book gets a lot of hate, but I love it.

So my goal is to finish Red Queen and finally read Glass Sword.

Then I will start on the novel that goes along with March’s author! Woo! As well as Gena Showalter’s newest novel Firstlife.

Seriously, I am super excited for this book. I haven’t read any of Gena Showatler’s adult fantasy novels, but I read the entire White Chronicles YA series. Loved every minute of it and I was so stoked to find out she was releasing another YA novel.

FYI: I left out the novel for the March Author interview on purpose. I don’t want you to know who it is yet. 😛 I like to keep the magic alive!
