Happy Wednesday! I have been reading like a crazy person these last few days but seem to have more books started than I can finish! I hate when I get like this, not productive at all. It is like adding to-do items on your list and never getting to cross anything out. Lame! What are you all reading this week? Log in with MizB of Should Be Reading and play along. I linked the book names to goodreads.com if you are interested in checking them out.
I did finish a quite a bit more than I expected thought once I start looking. Bossypants by Tina Fey was enjoyable, easy and funny. The Enemy by Charlie Higson was tense and rocky, kids surviving in a zombie infested world, gross and icky but compulsively readable. Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger was a great YA steampunk, it skimmed the surface of the steampunk so it didn’t bog down the story, was about training girls to be spies and was fairly safe and fun – I want a mechanimal! And I just now finished Steel by Carrie Vaughn which is a YA book about a girl who ends up back in time on a pirate ship. Adventure on the high seas.
I am currently reading quite a few things, but I will focus on what I am actually making headway on. I am reading The Outer Rims by Clint Morey and just got a notice that I received the third installment of the serial. Things are heating up! And, I am around 150 pages into The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The book goes backward and forward in time and things aren’t fully explained but it is atmospheric and odd and I like the quirky characters.
Next up, I have a couple bummer future books to read. I just started Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin which is a YA book post plague and it seems good, I want to read Poe’s short story while I am reading this too. Fun! I am also going to pick up Patient Zero (Joe Ledger #1) by Jonathan Maberry, another zombie world book – ew and yay! I returned those library books, I just have way too many books collecting dust on my shelves to focus on those. Also, Jennifer B just reviewed the new Gin Blanco book, Deadly Sting and I realized I have some serious catching up to do on that series (and most if not all are on my shelf waiting patiently!). I still have Origin, Unbroken, The Chaperone and Clara & Mr. Tiffany started which I need to get back to. The crazy thing is, I am enjoying them all, I just keep picking other books up. See what I mean?! I can’t seem to focus. gah!
