I’ve been reading a lot lately. Snips and snatches here and there. I have a book I read on the stationary bike. A book I sip on while I wait for my work computer to boot up. Another one I read while cooking breakfast. Another in the car.
So here’s what I’ve been reading lately:
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher: I just finished this in audio and the narrator is AMAZING. The book is fantastic and I can’t say enough good things about it. I can’t remember the last time I read a book with so many unpredictable twists! Read it. It’s great.
Jealousy by Lili St. Crow: The third in the Strange Angels series, I really enjoyed this. It left me hanging and waiting desperately for the fourth book by putting a favorite character in peril. But there was enough in the story that it didn’t leave me MEH because it’s a middle book (which is too often the case).
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins: It wasn’t what I was expecting and was a WHOLE LOT FUNNIER. She didn’t do what I wanted or expected with the love interest, but it’s a series, so there’s time yet. Really enjoyed the author’s voice.
And just to prove that I’m reading the occasional, you know, grown up book…
Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh: This is the first in her Psy-Changling series, which I nabbed in ebook from the library before I went to Omaha. I picked it up to tide me over as I wait desperately for the 3rd Archangel book (due out in MARCH!). Loved. Enough that after dark fell I was using my iPhone as a flashlight to read while my husband drove, just so I could find out how it ended. Of course now I want to read the rest but the library skips from Book 1 to Books 6 and 7. HELLO? WTH? Where are 2-5? Libraries do this SO OFTEN, it’s like there’s not a single coherent thought relating to what they buy. Drives me NUTS.
Right now I’m finishing up
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, which I’m really enjoying, though I miss my Jace and can’t wait for City of Fallen Angels.
Blood Sins by Kay Hooper, second in the Blood trilogy. I just started this yesterday and I haven’t decided if I like it yet.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, which I’m finding very amusing.
On deck after these is
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, which I found via ParaJunkee and was really intrigued by.
Soulstice by Simon Holt, the second in the Devouring series, just in time for Halloween
I swear, I really do have lots of grown up books in my TBR pile, but I just… I keep finding myself dissatisfied by adult books right now, and I keep reaching for the YA and then buying more. Whatever that says about me, I’m loving almost everything I’m reading.
