Recently Finished

1719950417901125It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a WWW Wednesday post!  I’ve been so engrossed in the books I’ve been reading this month that I’ve forgotten all about doing them.  I finally started reading The Bone Season series and I am 100% hooked on it.  I finished the second book, The Mime Order, a couple days ago and I’m dying for book 3.  Luckily for me it comes out in less than a month.  I’ve been trying to stay on top of my book reviews this year so you can check out my review of The Bone Season here and my review for The Mime Order will go up soon.

 

Currently Reading

2203333530649795I’ve been preparing to continue on in the Outlander series by re-reading A Breath of Snow and Ashes via audiobook.  I’m nearly done with it and it’s been a great one to listen to.  I was approved for an advanced copy of Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner which is one of my most anticipated books of the year.  I started reading that after I finished The Mime Order and it’s totally breaking my heart.

 

Up NextI’m going to continue my streak of not really planning my next read and just going with what I feel like in the moment.  At this point I will probably want to read the next book of the Outlander series, An Echo in the Bone.  But we’ll what happens after I finish Goodbye Days.

www1026-1I have actually had an amazing reading week!  As I was putting together this post I was shocked at how many books I read since last Wednesday.  I’ve been on another big audio re-read kick lately and lucky for me my library has had some titles I’ve been able to check out.  I’ve mentioned on the blog before that I can only listen to an audiobook if I have already read the book in print first.  I’ve tried listening to books I haven’t read but I just can’t keep focused on the audio and end up missing a lot. I also finished reading the print copies of books 5-8 of the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries so I could read my arc of the 9th book, which I started this morning.

www1026-20I also had a couple of DNFs from my Halloween TBR.  Nightfall felt really juvenile and not what I expected at all.  The main characters were overly naive, I just couldn’t stand to continue the book.  I started reading The Exorcist on Saturday morning for Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon but I couldn’t get into it.  The opening is really dull and the sentences felt very fragmented and incomplete.  I thought about giving it a chance until the action really starts but decided I didn’t want to waste any more time on it.

www1026-2Currently I am reading the arc of All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris which is book 9 in the series I mentioned above.  So far it is pretty good and I’m really interested to see what happens.  I am also doing an audio re-read of I Hunt Killers by Jasper Dent.  I really enjoyed reading this book in print and the narrator is doing a great job.

www1026-3My next audio re-read will be An Ember in the Ashes which I have borrowed from the library.  I will also be reading some more arcs that I have received through NetGalley and Edelweiss.  I’m looking forward to reading these three.  I want to get some of these arcs out of the way before I start reading some of the recent releases I’ve been looking forward to.

I’ve still been on my audiobook kick lately.  I finished book 2 of The Raven Cycle and it was awesome!  Definitely gave me a new perspective on Ronan and bumped him up to the #2 slot in my ranking of the boys.  I also listened to the audiobook for Locke & Key.  I’ve said before that I don’t listen to audio unless I’ve read a physical copy of the book first but this one was free.  I think that it just didn’t translate well to audio and I would be much more interested in reading the graphic novel.  I also did an audiobook re-read of The Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy by Nora Roberts.  I really enjoyed experiencing this series again via audio.

Currently I am reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue.  I am really enjoying it and I can’t wait to see where it goes.  I just haven’t been in the mood to read lately so it’s taking me longer to read it than it normally would.  I’m also doing an audiobook re-read of Shadow and Bone.  I absolutely LOVE the Grisha trilogy so I am totally loving re-experiencing it via audio.

As soon as I finish BLLB I will immediately jump into The Raven King!  I am so excited for that.  And then after I have finished that I will move on to The Rose & the Dagger which I am also super excited for!  I can’t wait to get back to Shazi and Khalid.  I will also be continuing my audio re-read of The Grisha Trilogy.

Well, without the audiobooks I would have had a pretty unimpressive week of reading.  I read the SUPER short story, The Crown & the Arrow and then I finally finished Passenger by Alexandra Bracken.  I had 4 audiobook re-reads – Incendiary, Iniquity, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

www42616read

Currently I am trying to catch up in The Raven Cycle with The Dream Thieves.  I am really not far into it but am interested to see where this is going.  I also started the audiobook for Locke & Key.  Normally I only listen to audiobooks for books I have physically read before but this one has a full dramatized cast so I figured it would hold my attention more.

www42616up

After I finish The Dream Thieves, I am going to move on to either The Rose & the Dagger or Blue Lily, Lily Blue.  I preordered my copy of The Raven King from Fountain Bookstore in VA so I don’t anticipate receiving it for at least a week or two so I don’t mind putting off BLLB until closer to receiving the final book in this awesome series.  Plus I am SUPER eager to start The Rose & the Dagger because I LOVED The Wrath & the Dawn!

I have still been on my audiobook kick so I have recently reread books 1-3 of the Premonition series by Amy A. Bartol.  It’s one of my favorite series but I’m a little disappointed in the way the narrator reads the parts of my favorite character, Brennus.  I also finished my library e-book of Seveneves by Neal Stephenson.  This book was so good!  I normally don’t go for heavy sci-fi/space books but this was so fascinating!  Once it got into the second part though it got a little dull for me, but it definitely picked back up.

www420read

Since I finished my library e-book on Monday, I finally have time to pick up Passenger again.  I’m reading it for book club and even though I haven’t gotten very far yet, it’s really hooked my interest.  I’m also currently re-reading book 4 of the Premonition series via audio.

And with less than a week now until The Raven King is released, it’s going to be high time I get around to reading book 2&3 in preparation.  I preordered TRK from Fountain Bookstore in VA because they had a really cool preorder deal to get a doodle copy with a special signed bookplate from Maggie.  I know I won’t be receiving the book on the day it is released so I should have time to read both books before it arrives.  I also have The Rose and the Dagger preordered from Amazon and that will arrive on the release date next Tuesday so if I run out of books to read before TRK comes, I will be picking that one up immediately.
