This meme is hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the following three questions in a post and then put a link to that post in the Comments over at Taking on a World of Words.
The questions are:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently Reading –
I started reading this early this morning. I’m not that far in yet but I’m so glad to be back with Mare and Cal. I think I’m all of 50 pages in and I had to put it down to go out and do this but once I’ve finished I’m going to make myself a coffee and ignore the real world for a few hours and dive back into Mare’s.
I received a copy of Glass Sword from Hachette New Zealand to review. My copy is an ARC so it doesn’t look like this. It’s not the same size as my copy of Red Queen either so it won’t be on the same shelf or it will drive me nuts. But it’s so pretty! I’m glad I got a ARC of it 🙂
Hopefully I’ll have it read before it’s release date in New Zealand so I’ll have my review ready to post on the release day. But I also don’t want to just fly through it like I did with Red Queen.
Recently Finished –
I finished Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club last night. I wanted to read this because it reminded me of The Infernal Devices trilogy when I read the synopsis. Not that I remember much about The Infernal Devices so I wasn’t able to compare them, which is probably a good thing!
This is set in England in 1812 and Lady Helen has turned eighteen. She’s now eligible for marriage, even if she’s not ready. Her mother has been labeled a traitor and she’s grown up with that over her head since she was eight. Now, Helen has discovered a secret world, a world full of supernatural creatures she’s apparently been born to fight.
I received a copy of this to review from HarperCollins New Zealand. My review of Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club will be up soon. I still have to get my thoughts around everything that happened.
Who’s Afraid? is the first book in a series/trilogy (I’m not sure) but I know there’s another book after this one. Which is good because there’s definitely an open ending and I need to know what’s next for Tommi and Lorcan.
Who’s Afraid? follows Tommi as she travels to New Zealand to find out about her father and discovers a whole other world she never knew existed. She barely escapes her father’s family and New Zealand with her life and now has to hide what happened and who she really is from her friends and family to protect them. What she doesn’t know is that something followed her home…
I received a copy of Who’s Afraid? from Hachette New Zealand to review. I really loved this book. My review should be up soon.
I’m not one for romance books or romance in general really but I have to say there are certain authors who have me coming back for their “love stories” and Kiera Cass is definitely one of them. I’ve read the first three books in the Selection Series (The Selection, The Elite and The One) and as much as they reminded me of The Bachelor there was so much more to them than just that. I have Happily Ever After and Their Heir to read but I want to read The Heir closer to when The Crown is released.
The Siren follows Kahlen as she counts down the time she has left in service to the Ocean. She’s ready for her second life and the chance to fall in love and have a family. But that all changes when she meets Akinli and falls for him.
I’m not going to say any more than that because it’ll just give it away but it is really good! I couldn’t put it down.
Reading Next –
I received a copy of My Sister Rosa from Allen and Unwin New Zealand to review.
I don’t really know much about this other than a boy (I can’t remember his name) has to watch his sister Rosa because she’s pretty much a psychopath and kills animals but hasn’t killed a person… yet. So, a nice happy family story there.
It seemed interesting when I read the synopsis a few months ago. And I’m sure I’ve never read anything like this before so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.
What are you planning on reading next? Leave me a comment and let me know.
