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).
Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder – Yup, I’m still reading this. It is good, but not the most engaging of books. I love the chapters featuring Valek, but the book is a lot of effort for me to pick up.
The Devil’s Heart by Carmen Carter – Really not a favourite, despite a narration by a great Star Trek actor. Not terrible but rather… boring!
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 2 of clubs for Automatic by Rachel Caine – I was surprised by my enjoyment of this tale, given my current not-so-great feelings about the Morganville books. This morning I dealt a 4 of diamonds for Prisons by Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason. Considering I didn’t enjoy the last Federations story that much, I am a bit nervous about this one…

Awww sad to hear that Shadow Study is kind of hard to pick-up. From what I remember the scenes with Valek were my favorite parts of the 2nd and 3rd book as well.
Yeah – it is a bummer. I mean, it is still good but not stellar. I would have been much happier to read a prequel novel from Valek’s POV.
That being said, I am 60-odd% through the book and FINALLY I am starting to get into the plot itself. So… maybe I will really like it by the end?

bummer about Shadow Study, I really enjoyed the Study trilogy, is this a spin-off? Have a good week and happy reading 🙂
