Hello, My Lovely Bookworms!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It consists of answering these three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I started Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Mead this morning. So far I am curious about the plot but the characters can still be meh at times. We will see how it goes!

Last night I got through 30% of The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina by Zoraida Córdova. It’s very much about family mixed with magical realism. I am liking it so far and can’t wait to finish it.

  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐
  • For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • A Spot of Trouble by Teri Wilson (arc) ⭐✨
  • Arsenic and Adobo by Mia P. Manansala ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Those Not-So-Sweet Boys Vol. 2 by Yoko Nogiri (manga) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’m iffy about continuing the Vampire Academy series so we will see after I finish the second book. If I don’t continue I’m not sure what audiobook I will start.

My next arc will be The Splendor by Breeana Shields. It’s an anticipated read of mine so I am looking forward to it.

After that or before, I will read Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean. It’s in from the library so I need to get to it!

It consists of answering these three questions:

My audiobook is Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. I am only 10% through but I am liking it so far. It’s cool to see them mention so many books as well.

I will be starting Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim and Fae Pursuit (Tangled Fae #4) by Sarah K.L. Wilson today. I want to finish the Tangled Fae series and I only have two books left so it’s ready to get it done!

  • Battle Royal by Lucky Parker (arc) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Dire King (Jackaby #4) by William Ritter (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Royals Next Door by Karina Halle (arc) ⭐⭐⭐
  • The Last Words We Said by Leah Scheier (arc) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If I like my current audiobook then I will continue with the series and go onto Inkspell by Cornelia Funke.

My next read will be Fae Conquerer (Tangled Fae #5) by Sarah K.L. Wilson. I will finish this series this week!

I am listening to Incendiary by Zoraida Córdova. This is a reread as I wanted a refresher before going into the sequel. I am about 60% through at the moment.

Last night I started The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary. It has started off with an intriguing plot so I am looking forward to seeing where it goes!

I also started The Emperor’s Blade by Brian Staveley. This is adult fantasy which is a genre I want to read more from. Since it is a longer book I am going to read about 10% a day. So far it is interesting but hasn’t completely grabbed my attention yet.

  • Forest of Souls (Shamanborn #1) by Lori M. Lee (reread) ⭐⭐⭐
  • Broken Web (Shamanborn #2) by Lori M. Lee (arc) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle ⭐⭐

I will be reading Shipped by Meredith Tate. It just came in from the library recently and I am looking forward to it! I just love the colors on the cover.

My next audiobook will be Jackaby by William Ritter. I have the series on my shelf and since my library has the audiobooks I might as well give them a listen!

Weekly Update (5/16/21)

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has actually been pretty average. Nothing crazy has happened and I’ve just been getting more yardwork and housework done.

I’ve been reading a lot and for the most part enjoying what I have been picking up. I should finish another book today and start on another arc. I’m finally down to 16 arcs left so I am doing pretty good!

I am still playing World of Warcraft with my husband and brother. It’s nice to connect with my brother since we live a couple states away.

Hopefully this week is just as smooth and things keep going the way they are!

I hope you all have been having a fantastic weekend!❤

Hello, My Lovely Bookworms!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It consists of answering these three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Right now I am 27% through the audiobook for Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee. I read an arc for it last year but since I have the sequel as an arc I figured I’d do a refresher before diving in! The audiobook kind of feels dull though and I think I would much prefer to read it.

I started Sisters of the Snake by Sasha Nanua & Sarena Nanua last night and am about 20% through. It is good so far but I can tell there will be plot holes. I definitely think I can look past them though as I am intrigued by the magic and the world-building so far.

  • The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Castle in the Air (Howl’s Moving Castle #2) by Diana Wynne Jones (audiobook) ⭐⭐
  • Red Wolf by Rachel Vincent (arc) ⭐⭐✨

I will be listening to Incendiary by Zoraida Córdova next as I wait for the sequel to come in from the library. I need to refresh a bit! Haha.

The next book I pick up will be another arc. I finally below 18 so that is good! I think I will pick up The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson. I loved the Truly Devious series and I can’t wait to dive into a new mystery!

It consists of answering these three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?

I’ve barely started the audiobook for Castle in the Air (Howl’s Moving Castle #2) by Diana Wynne Jones. I am going to try to make a dent in it today.

I started The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang. I’m only 20% into it and only reading about 10% a day since it’s a long book and although I’m enjoying it I’m trying not to get burned out from long books, haha.

I’ll be starting Fae Captive (Tangled Fae #2) by Sarah K.L. Wilson. I finished the first as a reread a couple months ago and this will be a reread as well before I get to the last three books that will be new to me.

  • The Tragedy of Dane Riley by Kat Spears (arc) ⭐⭐
  • Sunny Song Will Never Be Famous by Suzanne Park (arc) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

If I like my current audiobook I will continue on with House of Many Ways (Howl’s Moving Castle #3) by Diana Wynne Jones.

My next book will either be Fae Nightmare (Tangled Fae #3) by Sarah K.L. Wilson or Tell Me When You Feel Something by Vicki Grant (arc).

Yesterday I spent hours working on the yard and making two trips to Menards for mulch, haha. I got it all done but still have yet to touch the inside! I’ll at least get some done today.

Other than that my week has been the same ol’ same ol’. I did finish a book today so I am off to a great start!

I hope you all have been having a fantastic weekend! ❤

I am still reading The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon. I am 86% through so I should finish today. My buddy reader and I talked about it yesterday and we agree on a lot of stuff again. I’ll have a review up next week for you guys!

I will be listening to Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I am really looking forward to this!

Last night I started The Secret Bridesmaid by Katy Birchall. It’s an arc I have that comes out next week. I am behind but that is okay, haha. I still have time!

If I enjoy Howl’s Moving Castle I will continue on to Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones.

Weekly Update (4/25/21)

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

I have been reading a bit more this week than last week although most of the books I have picked up have been average which disappoints me. At least the first half of the month had great ratings! Gotta look at the positives, haha.

As far as life, it’s been a struggle. I got kicked in the eye by my daughter yesterday. It was an accident but it still hurt nonetheless, ha. My mom has been in the hospital twice now for kidney stones which have been causing blockage. It’s hard to live in a different state at times like this. There are siblings that live there but some are just too preoccupied with themselves that they don’t actually do much. It’s frustrating. She will be having surgery sometime soon to hopefully help her situation.

Other than that, my husband will be finishing up college this coming week and then we will have a month until summer classes. My daughter turns five in two months and I am just not prepared for that either. I’m just going to continue on with my motto, it is what it is.

A positive is that I am 9 days free of binge eating and I have been working out 3-4 times a week for the last two weeks. It feels good to have a routine going and feel like I am accomplishing something for myself.

I hope you all have been doing well! ❤

It consists of answering these three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I am currently reading Plot Twist by Bethany Turner. It is an arc I have from Netgalley and honestly, I’m not feeling it. It’s too dramatic and not enough romance although it tries to be a rom-com but without the two only meeting once so far.

I am listening to The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. I wouldn’t say it’s bad but I’m also not loving it either. I am still going to continue on as I am not very far into it.

Today I am also going to be starting The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon. I am doing it as a buddy read and looking forward to it!

  • Bone Crier’s Dawn (Bone Grace #2) by Kathryn Purdie 3 stars
  • My Epic Spring Break (Up) by Kristin Rockaway (audiobook) 3.5 stars

If I continue on with my feelings for The Kiss of Deception then I will pick up The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson.

I will read another arc and it’s called Faking Reality by Sara Fujimura.
