Happy Monday, Book Lovers!
What were you reading over the weekend?
Check out what’s on our nightstands.
Celeste: I’m addicted to all things Jennifer L. Amrentrout. While
Daemon andOnyx (Lux #2) comes out tomorrow, I started her other series Half-Blood (Covenant #1). This series spoke for me for two main reasons: 1) it’s JLA! 2) mythology. Oh, and 3) Team Aidan (I saw him everywhere for the crush tourney). I just had a feeling this book would be outstanding. Not wasting any time the first page started out with some serious action and we meet Aidan a few pages later. Right now I’m learning about the differences between a half-blood and a pure blood and daimons. All I need now is some time to read.
Ana: This weekend I finished Destined by Aprilynne Pike, the final book in the Wings series. I won’t say too much, but I will admit that it was a fitting end to a great storyline and that I think all fans of this series will be happy with how the author brought the story to completion. Look for my review soon!
I also started The Lure of Shapinsay by Krista Holle. This book is about Kait, a regular girl who falls in love with a boy named Eamon. The twist is that he’s a Selkie, a seal man who can entice women and lure them to their deaths at sea. Kait believes herself to be in love with him but is that true or is it just his Selkie power that has bewitched her? I’ve haven’t read many mermaid/mermen/selkie books and so this story intrigued me. I’m looking forward to learning more about Selkies and, of course, the love story these two will share.
Christina: I started Every Day by David Levithan. I had heard nothing but good things about how talented a writer Mr. Levithan is, especially from his work on Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist and Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares. Then when BEA rolled around, I saw a blurb about this particular title and summary, and I was instantly intrigued. Such an interesting premise–waking up each day in a new body, just trying to make it through the day without out their friends and family noticing that you’ve inhabited that person’s body for the day. How would something like that work? What kind of life would that be, never knowing who you’re going to wake up as from one day to the next? So when I saw this title up on Net Galley, I jumped at the chance to read it. So far, it’s not disappointing.
How about you? What have you been reading?
