Recently FinishedLast Thursday I started my summer reading challenge.  It’s called the 20 Books of Summer challenge and it is hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books.  Check out my TBR post here for more info on this challenge.  Since then I have read two of the books from my selected TBR – one YA and one adult.  So far I think I’m on a good track to complete this challenge.  On average I would need to read 1.5 books every week so I’m off to a great start with two books complete in the first week.  Let’s hope that I can keep that pace up!

I was a little disappointed with The Sun Is Also A Star.  It wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be, but maybe that was just my own hype getting in the way because I know lots of people loved it.  Bad Mommy was a total whirlwind of crazy! Definitely an interesting story with intriguing characters!

Currently I am reading Everland.  I got this book a long time ago in an Owlcrate box and haven’t picked it up until now.  It is also on my challenge TBR.  So far I’m not really feeling the book one way or the other.  I’m not that far into it though so we’ll see how it goes.  I also started an ARC that I got last week.  It releases on June 20th otherwise I probably would put it off longer haha.


Up NextUp next I’m not really sure what book I will choose.  I have a couple of ARCs that I need to read soon but I also want to keep up on my challenge.  Decisions, decisions…  So from my main challenge TBR I still have 17 other books to choose from.

Recently FinishedI’ve been having a pretty good reading week since last Wednesday.  I’m finished The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon, book 3 of The Bone Season series.  It was shorter than the first two but so intense!  I’ve also been working on getting caught up on my ARCs.  I finished The Jane Austen Project which I reviewed on Monday, and Manderley Forever which I reviewed yesterday.

Currently ReadingCurrently, I am doing a re-read of Nevernight via audiobook.  I also started an ARC of He Said/She Said yesterday.  Before I started my Nevernight re-read, I was listening to my re-read of An Echo in the Bone.  I will be continuing with that after I finish listening to Nevernight.

Up NextUp next I have one more ARC I want to try and fit in before the end of the month. The ARC is of Woman No. 17.  I read the author’s other book, California, and really enjoyed it so I’m really looking forward to reading this one.

Recently I finished the ARC of Seeking Mansfield by Kate Watson.  It was a cute YA Jane Austen retelling of Mansfield Park.  I just posted my review today which you can read here. I also got on an audiobook re-read kick so I checked out a bunch from the library.  In the past week I finished Safe Haven, The Last Song, The Longest Ride, and The Choice, all by Nicholas Sparks.  I’m a sucker for his books even though they are corny as hell.

Currently I am continuing my read of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.  I finally have some free time to read a bit and I am loving every second of this book.  The characters and world are so vivid and the writing is beautiful.  I can’t get enough.  I’m also continuing my audiobook re-read kick with A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks.

Up Next

Up next I’ll be starting the ARC for The Jane Austen Project.  It was published yesterday so I’m a little behind.  I also loaded up my library queue with some more audiobook re-reads.  As far as print books go, I’ll HOPEFULLY have my copy of A Court of Wings and Ruin today or tomorrow so as soon as I finish Strange the Dreamer, I’ll be reading that immediately.

Wow! It has been 3 weeks since my last WWW post!  And I never ended up reading any of the books on my up next list from that post 😀  So picking up where I left off…

Recently Finished31286001 6941740 31549513 25387381

I finished both An Echo In The Bone and Toward A Secret Sky.  I had been struggling with AEITB but as it got closer to the end, it started getting so good I never wanted to put it down!  I had anticipated needing a break after finishing it but the ending made me really want to just dive right in to the next book.  So rather than start any of the books I had on my up next list, I did just that and picked up Written In My Own Heart’s Blood.  That one was so good that I ended up reading it in 9 days!  Quite a difference from AEITB taking me over 50 days to read.  There was so much crazy shit that happened in WIMOHB that I couldn’t do anything but spend all of my free time reading it!  There were laughs and there were tears, both good and bad.  I really can’t wait for book 9 to come out!  I also finished another arc that I was behind on – The Alchemists of Loom.  That one didn’t really do it for me though so I ended up not posting a review on the blog.

Currently I’m in the middle of another arc that I’m really enjoying – Seeking Mansfield.  It’s a modern retelling of Mansfield Park which is one of my favorite Jane Austen novels.  On Saturday I started a buddy read of Strange The Dreamer and while I’m loving it so far I haven’t had a lot of time to read since then so I’m still on page 42.   We’re preparing for a big joint garage sale with my parents next weekend so I won’t have a lot of extra time for reading.

Up Next31371280Up next I don’t have much of a plan beyond getting in some more time with Strange The Dreamer if I can.  I’ll probably finish up Seeking Mansfield and then start my next arc which is another Jane Austen themed one called The Jane Austen Project.

Since my last update I’ve read a few books, two of which I loved.  A Darker Shade of Magic was incredible! I can’t believe I waited so long to read it!  I love Kell and Lila so much.  A Gathering of Shadows was really good too and I loved the introduction of Alucard.  I also read Finding Fraser by KC Dyer in the hopes that it would spark my interest in An Echo in the Bone again.  For the most part it was an enjoyable read and definitely did make me want to pick up AEITB again so it served its purpose.

Currently I am back into AEITB.  I picked it up again yesterday on my lunch break after having set it down for about three weeks.  Of course right when I pick it up I end up on a line centered on William who is not one of my favorite characters to read about.  But I’m going to hang in there.  I am also reading an arc of a book that was just released yesterday!  Toward A Secret Sky by Heather Maclean takes place mostly in Scotland and so far it is really good!  Also helps that I have the same name as the main character 😉

Up next I was thinking about picking up Big Little Lies because now that all of the episodes are out I really want to watch the show.  I also found out that the May Nerdy Post theme is Sarah J. Maas so I’m getting back in the mood to get back to the Throne of Glass world.  I still need to read The Assassin’s Blade and Empire of Storms.
