It’s that time again for our midweekly book wrap up hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. What have you finished, What are you reading and What is up next?
I finished a couple of things this week, Enclave (Razorland #1) by Ann Aguirre, a future YA dystopian, post-plague with zombies. Crazy! But great and I am excited to get my hands on Outpost (#2). I also finished Dream Lake (Friday Harbor #3) by Lisa Kleypas which was good and Siren (#1) by Tricia Rayburn which was moody and kind of dark but quite enjoyable.
I am currently reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery and it is tough going. I enjoy reading it, because it is weird and philosophical with big words and great language and actually pretty funny, but I have to look up a word every few pages. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy that it makes me think, but the characters are too damn smart for their own good. I am also reading Beautiful Disaster…I am not having that problem with this book. It is New Adult, a little clunky in the language/writing, but the story sucks you in and shakes you around…at least so far. If you let yourself get swept away you find yourself obsessively reading, if you don’t, it will probably irritate you! Haha. I get all obsessed, then I put it down and don’t want to pick it back up. You know, ignore it. Very weird. I am having a teenage love affair with the book.
Next up – I honestly don’t know. I did get a few pages into Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World, but I don’t know if now is the right time for it. I got a couple of books for review that I could dig into… The Garden by Paul Harry about Adam and Eve, or Supernatural Freak by Louisa Klein, Sinner’s Gin is waiting patiently too. They all look amazing. I keep picking up and putting down King’s Carrie…I think I might need a little reading break and to watch some TV or something. (Noooooooooo!)
Maybe I should check out what you guys are reading to help me make up my mind. So leave the link to your WWW or let me know in the comments what you are reading this week! 🙂
