In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we’ve been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven’t).
Somehow I forgot to post my reading last week! Ah well, I am still getting back into the swing of things. 🙂 So, this week I am covering TWO weeks of reading.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder – This is my first re-read in years! I adored it when I first read it and am quite enjoying it this second time. Not quite as stellar, but still a great book.
Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder – After a few pages, I put this on hold to re-read Poison Study. Wanted to get back into the “feel” for the characters before I continued.
Entice by Carrie Jones – This one was a “I am on a plane and have finished my book, what else do I have on my phone” choice. I didn’t enjoy Book 2 all that much but do want to finish this series eventually… I admit, I haven’t restarted the book since getting off that plane, so who knows!
All Fall Down by Ally Carter – Fab! A really great start to another great Ally series. I was a bit miffed by the ending, but I know things will be more stellar in the next book.
This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – SO GOOD I CAN’T EVEN. BUY IT AND READ IT AND LOVE IT.
Emissary by J. M. Dillard – A must-listen for die-hard Niners. Lovely alternative look at the pilot.
Warped by K.W. Jeter – Despite a great narration, this was not a very good book.
Deal Me In! update
I’m taking part in the Deal Me In challenge this year, reading a story a week during 2015 as chosen by a deck of cards. See my full list of stories to be read here.
Last week, I dealt the 7 of hearts – otherwise known as Wild Magic by Ann Aguirre. Aguirre can do no wrong – a fact that also applies to short stories. This week, fate has handed me the 8 of diamonds a.k.a. Spirey and the queen by Alastair Reynolds. I haven’t gotten to this one yet but hey, I have all week!
