Weekly Update (10/20/14): What I’m Reading Now

Uncategorized

I’m seriously moving at a snail’s pace when it comes to reading.  I had some terrible luck with books this week and it threw me off my game.  I’m also working on a new service for authors to help them get more reviews, and hopefully I’ll have the bugs all worked out soon and will be sharing that with you. 

At any rate, here’s what I’m reading.

What I read last week:

Such a cute book!  My review will be up this week.  If you have a daughter who is starting to move up from middle grade, but isn’t ready for lots of YA (like Hunger Games, Throne of Glass, or The Fault in Our Stars) then this is a great series.

Books I Did Not Finish:
 

To be fair, I barely started these.  You can read my reasons for quitting No One Else Can Have You and Chaos Born in THIS POSTA Discovery of Witches sounded promising, and after reading several reviews that swore up and down to it’s sex-free content, I decided to give it a try.  Turns out, that was a technicality and now I have half a mental image that I wish I didn’t.  In other words, it’s not clean like some reviewers claimed it to be. 

What I’m currently reading:

I’m almost half way through Dangerous Deceptions, and it’s fantastic.  I love this series and the characters.  I am half way through the first chapter in both Deep Blue and Curtsies and Conspiracies.  Like I said before, I am moving at a snail’s pace.  But that’s not always a bad thing.  Sometimes I like books better when I don’t feel rushed and I can just enjoy them.

My October TBR Pile:

I’ve been waiting patiently by my mailbox every day for The Woman Who Would be King.  Unfortunately, my copy didn’t get sent out right away and I got an email from the Blogging for Books program saying sorry, and that they would get it sent off.  So I probably won’t get to read it in October, but I’ll add it to my November TBR pile.  Most of these books will probably end up as November reads anyway.

    Oh! I didn't know you had The Discovery of Witches as clean. It is so not, although it is the cleanest of the series. I would have warned you! Bummer. I did enjoy that series, but I do read a few adult fiction once in a while and that's one I got sucked into.

    I love what you have coming up in your reading!!! I have some of those to read too. Let me know if you ever want to do a read-a-long and compare and contrast. I'd love to! 🙂

      I think I was more surprised than anything. I read tons of reviews that said it was clean, so I just wasn't expecting anything. Instead of skipping over those pages, I just tossed the book back into the "return to library" pile. Now that I know what to expect, I might give it another shot and just skip the parts that make me squirm. Although, it might make for a very short book, then. 😉
