Hey!

My reading is all over the place. I’m reading (and listening) to so many books at one time, which I never do. I think I’m in a reading slump or heading that way, so I keep starting new books to see if one will grab my attention. I also have so many ARCs that I need to get to, but just haven’t been in the mood to dive into my stack. I don’t want to read them when I’m not in the mood for them, because I don’t want to risk not liking them because of that. I’ll have a post on all the ARCs and review books that I need to read, so I can start checking them off the list! Anyway though, onto what I have been reading recently.

Currently Reading:

illbegoneinthedarkwhywebrokeuptheshadowmindsjournal

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
The Shadow Minds Journal by Kia Carrington-Russell

Also, Circe. But it’s unofficially on the list, because in reality I haven’t touched it in months and not sure when I will pick it up again. I’m listening to I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, I’ve had it on hold at my library for months and finally got it. I only have it for a few more days though, so I have to try to finish it this week. It’s good so far. I’ve been wanting to read Why We Broke Up for awhile now. I was looking at my bookshelf over the weekend and it was calling my name to finally read it, so I started that. It’s okay so far. I’m a little over halfway through it now and I am hoping it gets better. I’m not really a huge fan of the writing style and sometimes the conversations in the book make no sense at all. I was sent an e-ARC of The Shadow Minds Journal from the author for review. I’m about 16% into it and it’s alright so far.


Recently Finished:

theboywhoadarkershadeofmagic

The Boy Who Could See Demons by Carolyn Jess-Cooke
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I finally read A Darker Shade of Magic…I wasn’t that impressed. I liked it, but it didn’t blow me away. I was pretty bored throughout the first half of the book. I’ll still give the series a second chance and pick up the sequel soon. I also read The Boy Who Could See Demons, which was really good. It deals with mental health and I really liked it. I flew through it, it was hard to put down.

murdertrending

#MurderTrending by Gretchen McNeil

I’m not entirely sure what I will be reading next. I’m reading so many at one time right now that I am going to try to focus on finishing those. I may try to read #MurderTrending soon since I got that ARC from Netgalley and it’s release date is early August. I have a few July ARCs I need to read too, so we’ll see what happens. I packed up the majority of my books (see below) and only kept like 30 or so out; including my ARCs that I need to read. So we’ll see what happens.

What are you currently reading? Recently finished? Reading next? Have you read any of these books? Feel free to link me to your posts, so I can check them out!

I have so much going on right now outside of the blogosphere and reading, so I don’t even know how much time I’ll have to read (or blog) the next month or two. I got the okay from my boss about moving and keeping my job, so we are heading to Lakeland at the end of August. We have a lot of things to do like get rid of things, start packing our stuff, paint our current apartment, and finding a new place to rent in Lakeland. There’s also a ton of little things that go into it too, like changing our address with the post office and changing it with other places too, getting power and water turned on over there, switching our internet/cable service to over there. SO MUCH TO DO AND NOT ENOUGH TIME! Hopefully once all of that is done and we’re settled, I’ll be on a lot more. I’ll catch up with your posts in the next day or two when I get some down time. 🙂

Hey!

I have actually been reading quite a bit this month, which has been exciting considering the last couple months I haven’t read as much as I would have liked. I am hoping I can finish all (it’s more than one ughhh) of my currently reading books down below by the end of the month. Here is what I’ve been reading the last week/week and a half.

Currently Reading:

mayflyemergencycontactcirce

Mayfly by Jeff Sweat
Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi
Circe by Madeline Miller

I am currently reading three books, ughhh. I don’t usually do this as I’ve said before. Although, Mayfly is currently on hold for right now. I do like the book, but I am not in the mood for a dystopia book right now. I don’t want to force myself to read it and end up not liking it because of that. Emergency Contact was one of my most anticipated books of the year, so I decided to finally start it. Circe, I got an e-book copy from my library, so that is why I am starting it now so I can read it before it gets returned. I read Emergency Contact at home and I read Circe when I am out and about, so I don’t have to take my book around with me. Emergency Contact has a white and pastel pink cover, so I don’t want to risk it getting dirty, lol. The book sleeves I have only fit paperback books and I am not about to drop $25-30 on a bigger book sleeve that I probably won’t use often, to be honest. 😛 I’m not that far into any of these three books, but what I have read so far I like.


Recently Finished:

infernoturtlesallthewaydownbeforeiletgo

Inferno by Juli Kagawa
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

I’ve actually read a ton of books since I last did one of these WWW posts. These are the last three that I read (or listened to). INFERNO!!! It’s the final book in the Talon Saga and I am so sad that it’s over. Inferno was AMAZING. So many feels. The Talon Saga forever has a piece of my heart. Okay, so I’ve said this before, but I have a love/hate with John Green books. Most of the time I usually don’t like them or think they are just “okay”. I absolutely loved everything about Turtles All the Way Down and I was honestly SHOCKED! I listened to the audiobook. I went into it thinking “I already know I am not going to like this”, but I loved it. I connected with the MC on so many levels. Before I let Go…WTF did I read? It was weird. It was strange….and I just didn’t get it. It wasn’t for me. I’ll have a full review at some point this week.


Reading Next:

I’m not entirely sure what I am going to read next, because I feel like I already have a ton of books that I am currently trying to read, so by time next week rolls around there is a good chance I’ll still be reading those. I will try to get back into Mayfly and hopefully have it finished by the end of the month or the beginning of June. I also have a ton of other ARCs and review books that I need to read. I think I may do a post about all the books I need to read for review.

Hey!

Once again it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these posts. It’s so hard doing these lately, because I am not reading as much as usual; so they always end up looking exactly the same as previous weeks. I’ve been trying to fit in more reading, but school and regular life is happening too. I like the school work though, although the reading for school is a little boring. Haha. Here’s what I’ve been reading over the last couple of weeks.

Currently Reading:

invictus9781525811418.inddmemberofthefamily

Invictus by Ryan Graudin
Hot Mess by Emily Belden
Member of the Family by Dianne Lake

I’m reading three books…I know, it’s a lot. I actually don’t usually ever do this either! The most I read at one time is two. On the plus side, I am almost done with two of them. Invictus and I’ll have it finished today. Honestly, I’m not that impressed by it. It has it’s good moments, but I’m mostly bored with it. 😦 Part of why it took me forever to finish it, because I originally started it last year! I’ll have a review coming soon. I’m also reading Hot Mess, which I am really into it! I am almost finished with this one too. It’s really good and pretty crazy at times. I’ll have a review probably next week. I am also reading Member of the Family, which is written by one of the girls that was a part of the Charles Manson family. It’s about her life when she lived with him on the ranch. I’ve always been interested in everything about Charles Manson since I was younger (weird, I know, haha). I’m not that far into it, but so far it’s good.


Recently Finished:

huntress

Huntress by Julie Hall

I recently finished Huntress, which I thought it was really good. It’s about demons, angels, demon hunters. Supernatural vibes all around. It was a pretty fun read minus all the religious vibes. I guess it’s understandable (to some extent) because it is about angels and demons. There’s mention of God and Satan too being involved. Sometimes it just felt a little much. It was still enjoyable though. My review will be linked at the end of this post if you want to see more.


Reading Next:

ontheroadwarfare

On the Road by Jack Kerouac
Warfare by Julie Hall

I am not really sure what I am going to read next, to be honest. I have so many choices of books, especially ARCs that I need to read for review. I’ll probably be picking up one of those. Not sure which one yet, I’ll keep you posted! I checked out the On the Road e-book from my library and I may give that one a chance. I’ve seen it mentioned in quite a few books I’ve read (most recently being Member of the Family (mentioned above)). I think I might finally get around to reading it since I’ve seen it mentioned once again. Warfare is also on my list of what I might read next. It’s the sequel to Huntress (mentioned above). Honestly though, it’s up in the air.

Hey!

This week was kind of busy for me and it was my birthday on Saturday, which was exciting. 😀 I need to catch up on blog posts and comments, which will hopefully happen tomorrow or Friday. I haven’t been reading a ton the last couple of weeks, but I did manage to finally finish a book. Here is what I’ve been reading since the last time I did a WWW post, which I think was two weeks ago.

Currently Reading:

immortalreignhammerofthor

Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes
The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

I am still reading Immortal Reign. I’ve been taking my time with it, because it’s the last book in the series and I don’t want it to end! I am also dying to see what happens though, haha. It’s so good, you guys! I also started The Hammer of Thor this week too. I haven’t been bringing Immortal Reign with me anywhere, because last time I did I forgot it at work and had to go an entire weekend without it. NOT doing that again. 😛 So I started The Hammer of Thor, because I bring my Kindle with me everywhere. It’s also going to be returned back to the library in nine days, so I need to read it. I have a physical copy to though, so I guess it’s going if it does go back. lol. BUT STILL, I like reading on Kindle more. I am really stoked to be back into the world. I love Rick Riordan’s books so much. They are always so entertaining. I’m not that far into The Hammer of Thor, but it’s really good so far.

roankegirls

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

I was sent a copy of The Roanoke Girls from Blogging for Books for review and I was able to finally read and finish that one. It was really good. Pretty twisted and disturbing too. My review will be linked at the end of the post. It’s a short review, because it’s better to go into it not knowing much about it. It was also really hard to write a review for it to begin with.


Reading Next:

autoboy

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

I am not entirely sure about what I am reading next, because I have a TON of ARCs and review books that I want to try to get to. I haven’t decided which of those to start on. I mentioned last time that I have like at least nine of them. I had Autoboyography e-book on hold for awhile at my library and it finally got checked out to me, so I am hoping to also read that one too.

Hey!

I’ve found myself not really reading much over the last couple weeks, but I finally managed to finish a book this week, which was exciting. It put me a book ahead on my Goodreads challenge. With being in a bit of a reading slump, I was starting to fall behind on my Goodreads challenge. I’ve also been in a bit of a blogging slump as well as this reading slump, so I need to catch up with you guys this week.

I hate falling behind, but it happens. It’s been a pretty crazy couple weeks in my real life too. I plan to do some blog hopping tomorrow and Friday. Be on the look out and feel free to link me to some posts you want me to check out that I may have missed! 🙂 Anyway, here is what I’ve been reading this week.

Currently Reading:

immortalreign

Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes

I actually just started Immortal Reign this morning, so I only got through 2.5 chapters, but I am already LIVING for it. I don’t want this series to end, but I can’t wait to see what happens. I am dying to get home, so I can read all night.


Recently Finished:

dimple

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I knew I hit a reading slump, because I started When Dimple Met Rishi almost two weeks ago and only just now finished it. I also read the second half of the book in a single day (yesterday), so that even more confirms that I hit a slump. I decided to just stay up and finish the last half of the book instead of going longer without reading. I actually really enjoyed this book so much. It was so fun and cute. AND OMG RISHI! I pretty much fell in love with him.


Reading Next:

roankegirls

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

A month or two I was sent a copy of The Roanoke Girls for review and haven’t been able to get around to reading it. I think I will try to read this one next, so I can get my review up. It sounds pretty interesting, so I am looking forward to it. I also have a ton of other books/ARCs I need to read and review as well. Lots of May/June/July releases. I want to try to get to some of them early and draft reviews to post later. I don’t want to fall behind with review requests/ARCs, especially with it only being the second month of the new year.

Hi!

I’ve actually been flying through books this week, which is pretty exciting. I am just going to jump right into this WWW post. Here is what I’ve been reading over the last week or so.

Currently Reading:

 

dreamthievesataxonomyoflove

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen

This year I am trying to focus on finishing some of the series that I’ve started and never finished. So I got back into the Raven Cycle series and currently listening to The Dream Thieves audiobook.  I’m on the fence about it. It’s interesting, but I’m hoping it gets better. I’m a little over 30% into it right now. The first month or two of the year I want to also try to catch up with those ARCs that I haven’t been able to get to before the end of 2017, so I am also reading A Taxonomy of Love. This one was just released earlier this month. I’m almost finished with it (should be today). I have mixed feelings about it. I’m not sure if I love it or not, it’s weird. I’ll have a review at the end of the week.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

I was able to finish two books on Sunday, TWO! I was pretty stoked that I was able to finish both in one day. I had about 40 pages left of The Cruel Prince and then 40% of Tell Me Three Things once Sunday came around. I LOVED both books so much. The Cruel Prince was everything I hoped it would be and more. I’ll have my review linked at the end of this post if you want to check it out. Tell Me Three Things was a quick read, pretty fun, and cute. Both books got five stars from me!



Reading Next:

 

Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

I mentioned earlier in this post that I wanted to focus more on finishing series that I started, so I am also hoping to read The Crown’s Fate as well. Another one of my goal’s was to also binge read entire series instead of reading the first book or two and forgetting about them, so that’s why I am jumping right into Blue Lily, Lily Blue after The Dream Thieves. I also mentioned earlier in the post that I wanted to catch up on some leftover ARCs from 2017, so I am hoping to get to Before I Let Go too. It was released earlier this month. These are the books that I am hoping to read next. I do also have a couple more ARCs/review requests to get to in February and I should be clear of all ARCs from 2017!

What are you currently reading? Recently finished? Reading next? Have you read any of these books? Let me know and link me to your posts if you have one!
