WWW Wednesdays February 20th

It is that time again, time to share with us and MizB what books we have our noses stuck in.  Answer the three questions – What did you finish, What are you reading now and What is up next?

poison studyhiddenI just finished reading Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder – I can’t wait to get my hands on Magic Study!  I love books like this, fantasy, strong heroine learning who she is, world in flux…mmmmm, happy.  I also grabbed and finished Hidden by Kelley Armstrong from the library, a novella about Clay and Elena and the twins!  I think they consider it Bk 10.2 or something in the series.  Super super fun.

beautiful mysterysilver threadI am currently reading The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny which is a murder mystery with Gregorian chanting monks which I am starting to really enjoy and The Silver Thread by Emigh Cannaday.  I was just getting into it and forgot my kindle at work this weekend so I couldn’t read it.  Lame!  I forgot it again Tuesday night along with the book – aaargh!  Now I have to read something else or nothing at all for a whole night (I ended up watching Looper, what just happened?)  lol.

unbrokengirl fire and thornsNext up is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.  I have read the first 30 pages or so and it is great.  I am looking forward to getting to spend more time with it, Louie is a wild man!  I also checked out The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson from the library.  The protagonist is named Elisa, so of course I have to read it!  Plus I have heard really good things about the story.

What are you reading this week?

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  1. Busy, busy girl. I rather fancy Hidden. (being a fan of Clay) and Girl of Thorns and Fire. Thanks for the recommends.

      Clay is awesome, but I love Jeremy too. I still haven’t read the last two books in the series…but I think Savannah is the narrator, so I have been putting them off.

    Poison Study looks fantastic. The cover of The Beautiful Mystery is beautiful too.

    I recently purchased The Girl of Fire and Thorns because it was a daily deal for like 2 or 3 bucks. I need to start it because I’ve heard such great things about it. I hope you enjoy!

  4. I’ve heard good things about Unbroken and The Girl of Fire and Thorns. You’ll have to let me know what you think when you’re done!

    I listened to the audiobook of Poison Study years ago and liked it, but never went further in the series. My bad!

    • ocdreader says:

      I have so many series partially started like that! That is something else I want to work on along with my TBR, finishing or catching up with the series I have started. 🙂

  6. I like Louise Penny too. Have read all her books but not this one yet. Would love to know what you think of it 🙂

    • ocdreader says:

      This is my first book of hers, but I think I might have to read more after this one!

      • Oh! So you haven’t read the 3 Pines series…you should! I met her at a reading in Singapore and she was as charming as her books 🙂 I will admit though that they took a while to grow on me, they are rather slow and philosophical for mysteries!

      • ocdreader says:

        yes, that is the one thing that took me a while to get into this one, it is reflective and philosophical, especially since the setting is with monks who let no outsiders in and have taken a vow of silence except to sing…and one of them killed another…crazy!

  7. diannegray says:

    Any book with a protagonist is named Elisa must be good! 🙂

  8. KtTurner says:

    Great books this week. I llooooove Maria V Snyder, her Study series is one of my favourites, aahh Valek…. I’ve had The Girl of Fire and Thorns on my TBR for a while now, I have heard great things about it, just haven’t picked it up. Will need to move it up the list I think. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

    My book club read Unbroken last year, and everyone loved it. There are many sports stats about old Olympic races that I could have done without, but many people enjoy that sort of thing. Regardless, I really liked it and hope you do as well. My list is at http://katybrandes.wordpress.com/2013/02/20/www-wednesdays-feb-20/.

    • ocdreader says:

      My bookclub read Unbroken before I joined…so I am trying to catch up – they all lurved it so much I have to see what the fuss is about. I even had random people in the bookstore tell me to read it. lol – I am around 30 pages in and just in the olympic stuff, Hillenbrand tells it ALL…I may have to skim the stats a little 🙂

  11. jenniferbielman says:

    Wow, it seems like you have some serious books to read. 🙂 Enjoy.

  12. Great books there! Right now I’m reading Harken by Caleb Nation. I received it for review and I’m very excited about it. I’m hoping it will be as good as it sounds! 🙂
