It consists of answering these three questions:

I am listening to The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien still.

I started A Fate of Wrath & Flame by K.A. Tucker on Monday and I am 42% through! I may try to finish it today. It’s an interesting mix of Urban Fantasy / Time Travel. There are some intense plot twists and I’m loving the romance plot.

  • A Far Wilder Magic by Allison Saft (arc) ⭐⭐⭐

After I finish my current audiobook I will continue on with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.

My next arc will be When Night Breaks by Janella Angeles. I also plan to read Between, You, Me, and the Honeybees by Amelia Diane Coombs. I got it in from the library so I need to get to it!

I am listening to The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien still.

I started Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long last night. For some reason I didn’t know that this has Sci-fi elements to it. I’m honestly not loving the book which makes me sad. Hopefully it gets better as I’m only 26% but I do have one complaint already.

  • I Fell in Love After School Vol. 1 by Haruka Mitsui (manga) ⭐⭐⭐
  • Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer (arc) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Lakesedge by Lyndall Clipstone (arc) ⭐⭐

After I finish my current audiobook I will continue on with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.

My next read will be If You, Then Me by Yvonne Woon. I have it in from the library so I need to get to it!

After that, it will be another arc. I will most likely pick up Daughter by Kate McLaughlin. I was sent early access from the publisher since I loved the author’s first book. I haven’t read a mystery/thriller in awhile so I am so ready for it!

I am listening to The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien still. I haven’t been listening as much as I should. It’s not that it isn’t good! I am hoping to finish it by the end of the month though so I can start on the third and final book.

I know on Sunday I was starting Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer but I put it aside to finish Jade City but today is the day to make progress on it!

  • Wait For It by Jenn McKinlay (arc) ⭐⭐
  • Jade City by Fonda Lee ⭐⭐⭐✨

After I finish my current audiobook I will continue on with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.

I will most likely pick up another arc so it will be Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long or A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw.

I am going to be starting Sleeping Around by Morgan Vega and Jade City by Fonda Lee today. The first is an arc from an author/bookstagrammer that reached out to me! The second is a series I have been meaning to read and my husband has started it as well. He is ahead of me though, haha.

Still working my way through The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien. I made some progress yesterday and got to 42%.

None Since My Weekly Update

After I finish my current audiobook I will continue on with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.

If I like Jade City I will continue on to Jade War by Fonda Lee.

My next arc will be Wait For It by Jenn McKinlay. I love the cover and can’t wait to read it!

I am still working my way through The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien. I’m not very far in it since I haven’t been listening to it as much but I am enjoying it!

I started Luminous by Mara Rutherford yesterday and it’s pretty good so far. I’m curious about the magic system and where the story will go.

I did start Eragon by Christopher Paolini a couple days ago and I plan on reading a bit here and there. This is a reread but I never finished the series the first time.

  • Stalking Shadows by Cyla Panin (arc) ⭐⭐⭐
  • The Keeper of Night by Kylie Lee Baker (arc) ⭐⭐⭐

After I finish my current audiobook I will continue on with The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.

My next red will most likely be another arc which is This May End Badly by Samantha Markum.

It consists of answering these three questions:

I am still working my way through The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner. It’s for a buddy read and I’m really enjoying it. I wasn’t sure if I would like this one but I love the characters and the dual timeline.

I am 58% through Vampires, Hearts, & Other Dead Things by Margie Fuston. I think its a good book about grief and the lengths we would go to save someone we love but it’s not one that I am super in love. So far I’d say it’s a three star read.

I am so close to finishing the audiobook for The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien! It’s so dang good and I’m not sure why it has taken my so long to get to it, haha.

  • Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood (arc) ⭐⭐
  • You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao (arc) ⭐⭐✨

I haven’t been following the books I list here for the last two weeks, haha.

I do know that I will start The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien as my next audiobook.

My next read will most likely by Stalking Shadows by Cyla Panin. It comes out in September and I need to get to it!

I am working my way through Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson. It should get finished today since I am 43% through. It isn’t as captivating as her Sorcery of Thorns but it’s still good. I’m curious to see where the plot will go.

I will be starting The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner today. It’s for a buddy read and I’m excited!

It’s actually been a slow week and since I was gone over the weekend I haven’t finished a single book. Oops!

The next book I pick up will be Edgewood by Kristen Ciccarelli. I love her writing and I can’t wait to start her new book.

I don’t know what audiobook I will start next so I’ll just give you another arc I hope to start soon which is You Can Go Your Own Way by Eric Smith.

It consists of answering these three questions:

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

I started The Cruelest Mercy (The Kinder Poison #2) by Natalie Mae last night and got through 35%! It’s so good so far and I honestly can’t decide if I am Team Jet or Team Kasta. Jet is a sweetheart but there is something mysterious about Kasta, haha.

I am still listening to Made in Korea by Sarah Suk. It’s honestly taking me not a lot of time to get to 61% because I find myself wanting to keep going. I love the characters and the plot is fun!

  • The Donut Trap by Julie Tieu (arc) ⭐⭐
  • Bright Ruined Things (arc) ⭐⭐

My next audiobook will be They Wish They Were Us by Jessica Goodman. I meant to read this last year but never got to it. Since she is writing another book I felt like now is the time get it done!

I am down to 7 arcs and I can see the finish line! The next one I will pick up is Stalking Shadows by Cyla Panin. I haven’t seen anything about it yet so I am very curious!

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!

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!
