Did you read this weekend?
We did…so we’ll show you ours
if you show us yours!!
Tell us what you’re reading!!
Ana: I finally started reading City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare. It’s been on my kindle since it was released back in May but I just hadn’t had time to pick it up. This book begins where the last one left off except we’re immediately hit with a shock. Jace is gone…as in, missing…as in, we don’t know where he is and we can’t find him!! Well, I don’t like that very much!! So I’m demanding they do something about it immediately! Looks like this is going to be another adventure, much like the other books, and I can’t wait to experience the twists and turns. I really enjoy this series and am trusting that this one will not disappoint!
Amy: I started reading Blood of Anteros (The Vampire Agape #1) by Georgia Cates over the weekend. I love the fact that the author brings readers into what should of been the end of the main character, Curry’s, life, and that the story is told from his point of view! The first couple of chapters were honestly a bit slow, but things definitely pick up… The storyline is clever and intriguing thus far and the romance shared between Curry and Chancey is very captivating and intense. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
Christina: After hearing so many rave about it, I finally picked up my copy of Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1)by Leigh Bardugo off the nightstand and settled in. And by settle in, I mean… I read it all in one sitting. This fantasy is unlike anything I’ve ever read. It’s more than a great read, it’s an experience filled with magical powers, incredible world-building, and exceptional storytelling. This story is the journey of Alina Starkov, a girl who never quite found her niche in the world, who finally becomes the person she was always meant to be. One day, upon attack of her regiment in the Fold, she unleashes a power so great that she becomes the most sought out person in the kingdom and is seen as a savior by many. There’s mystery and intrigue, a good bit of romance, and twists and turns that had me racing through the pages. This is definitely one you don’t want to miss out on. Oh, and as a sidenote, this entire book– the cover, the map, the header embellishments– is gorgeous!
Celeste: I was a busy little reader this weekend. I devoured Touch (Denazen #1) and the novella Untouched (Denazen #2) by Jus Accardo. Touched: Dez lives with her cold, unemotional father, and she’ll do anything to get a rise out of him. Then she literally runs into Kale who is fleeing for his life. She doesn’t know what to make of him, but soon starts to learn her life with her “lawyer” father isn’t what it seemed; there’s evil to fight and people to save.
Untouched: This was from Kale’s point of view and while I loved the first book, this was more like a filler scene, but just written from Kale’s perspective and not Dez’s. It was also at an amusement part which just seemed a little too predictable.
In keeping up with the theme of smexy guys on the book cover I also began Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer Armentrout. This has been on my list forever, and when I saw Ana starting it, I’ll admit…I didn’t want to miss out on this review. Well, I am flailing all over the place. I am not totally sure what is going on yet, but Daemon Black is a cocky, strong, totally ripped and gorgeous guy just oozing sex. His comments line right up with his personality (I find myself rereading saying, did he just say that??) ….oh yah, I’m S O L D. I can’t wait to see where this leads both with the story and the romance.
How about you? What have you been reading?
